How To Get Rid Of Bacne (Back Acne)

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Bacne are just hideous! Its worse than acne because it break outs where we can't readily see. And they reduce our fashion adventures like wearing a backless dress for instance. That totally sucks.

Just as breakouts form on our faces from excess oil and bacteria getting trapped in the pores, bacne occurs the same way, especially at other areas of the body like the back.

We can get rid of bacne if we follow this regimen from Acne skin site:

1.) Use Salicylic Acid – Try cleansing with a salicylic acid wash in the shower. Salicylic acid is proven to kill acne on all areas of the body if used appropriately.

2.) Cleanse Gently and Daily– Gently cleanse your back acne in the shower. Never wash your skin aggressively and if you want to remove dead skin cells, use a soft loofah and GENTLY cleanse the area with a gentle bar soap or natural body wash free of dyes, perfumes, and chemicals.

3.) Wear Breathable Piece Of Clothing – Certain fabrics of clothing do not allow the skin to breathe so avoid anything made in constricting fabrics. Cotton is the safest bet to allow your pores to have ventilation.

4.) Drink Water – Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated and flush out toxins.

5.) Follow a Healthy Diet- Eat tons of fruit and vegetables, lean proteins, nuts, and whole grains.
