Back Acne?!?!?!?


Does anyone have any tips for getting rid of back acne? I already use a body was for it and end my showers with cold water. I would really like to get rid of it before June, which is when I have prom.

Do you exfoliate your skin?? Get someone too help you exfoliate it as it make be harder too do by yourself....Try products which a glycolic acid in it as well...

You can also use a clay mask on your back too help..Use Redmond's Clay...I love this stuff for oil/clogged pores.

My sibling had this in high school and the only thing that worked was Clinique. At the time they had a spray that you could spray all over your back but I'm not sure if that is still around. If it is, I highly reco it as I know it worked really well for him and it was the only thing that did the job!

I have heard of using a mix of tea tree oil and water as a spray will help. I will definitely try that, if not I will look into clinique one. Thanks for the help:)

Do you have long hair? Make sure you keep it off your back, especially when working out.

Two things many people rarely think about being a culprit for back acne (or antagonizing the situation) are: 1) the products you use in your hair, particularly if it's long, and 2) scented laundry products.

Think about the shampoo & conditioner and other hair treatments that run down your back while you're in the shower. Also the products: hair oil in particular, dry shampoo, hairspray and other styling products, that may be touching your bare back and making the area worse. If your hair tends to be oily that could cause problems as well.

Try switching to unscented laundry products to see if that helps.

In addition to what others have said:

- Soak in a bath with anti-inflammatory products (oatmeal is good).

- Any body care sponges / exfoliator bands / back brushes etc need to be properly cleaned, dried, and replaced often to avoid spreading bacteria and making the area worse. Don't store them in the shower - they'll stay wet and be full of bacteria.
- Not so great for the environment, but don't reuse towels while you're trying to clear up your back. And use a separate towel for body & hair.
- Dry body brushing. Sephora has a nice one. Obviously only do this if you're not inflamed and don't do it on broken skin.
- Use gentle exfoliating body scrubs. Don't use on inflamed or broken skin. You can even make your own. Look for a scrub with small particles. I have a coffee scrub that is very gentle but effective. Anything containing honey is a bonus as it has antibacterial properties.

- Clay / charcoal are excellent materials for detoxifying the skin. They help unclog pores (this is true for the body as well as the face).
Good luck!

I had the same problem but heres what i did. I exfoliated 2x a week. cleansed when i showered and used spot treatments for the affected areas. i also used a oil free body lotion and wore loose cotton clothing. also remember to switch your sheets and pillow cases and try to keep your hair off your back

Detox your body of the toxins. The liver literly filters everything you put in or on your body. Taking a natural liver supplement will help to clear up hormonal acne. Hepa Plus is an all natural, holistic liver supplement that I used to clean up and rid my body of acne.
