5 Tips for Treating Back Acne
- July 20, 2015
The summer is here and you are ready for the beach. Don’t let back acne keep you from enjoying life like you should. I have 5 tips that will help diminish those pesky blemishes so you can strut your stuff with confidence.
- Don’t treat your back like your face. Your back skin is tougher and thicker than your face skin. You may have trouble scrubbing your back, or just forget sometimes because it is out of your sight. Most of the time, your back is covered with clothing and gets sweaty, dirty, and clogged pores. These differences are why you should have a different technique for treating acne on your back, as opposed to your face.
- Exfoliate! Scrub those dead skin cells off and stimulate the blood flow to your back by using a rough exfoliation scrubber. When you scrub off those dead skin cells, it opens up your pores and because of the abrasiveness of the scrub, your body sends blood to the skin to being the repair process, even though you didn’t really damage anything. The increased blood flow helps heal acne, also.
- Wash your back daily. Many of us neglect our back skin to the point of not washing it often, other than the soapy water that flows down when you wash your hair and shoulders. You may need a tool to reach your entire back. If your significant other isn’t available to do the job, try a scrubber specifically designed for solo back washing.
- Moisturize. Now you may need a partner. Most people do not realize that all of your skin needs proper moisturizing to stay healthy and radiant. Make sure you use an organic product and apply after you shower.
- Go Natural. Use natural sponges and loofahs for washing and exfoliating. You may also want to consider the type of fabric you wear and the products that you use on your skin. The more natural you go, the better you will feel.
