Suffering From Back Acne?

Skin Care Tips For Back Acne Sufferers

Back acne is never fun. It's unsightly and it can really hurt. With warm weather right around the corner, our body complexion needs to be in tip-top shape. If you have yet to get your back acne under control, here are some skin care tips that can help.

Exfoliote, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

The pores on our backs are bigger than the pores on other areas of our body. Because of this, they can become clogged more easily. When dead skin cells slough off, they can really create havoc on your back and acne is sure to appear. To keep this from happening you need to exfoliate your back 2 or 3 times each week.

Use Benzoyl Peroxide

Buy an acne product that contains benzoyl peroxide as the active ingredient. Get a sponge with a handle that will allow you to apply the product to your back on a daily basis. Benzoyl peroxide can help break up the plugs that cause clogged pores.

Get Off My Back

Seriously, if you carry a backpack you need to stop and don't wear tight-fitting clothes. You need to keep things off your back so your skin can breath and doesn't become irritated. Wearing a backpack or clothing that rubs up and down on your back is a sure way to aggravate your back acne.

Zap Them

If you do get clogged pores that develop into pimples on your back, zap them with a Zeno. The device isn't technically meant on cystic acne, but I know quite a few people who have used it successfully on back acne outbreaks.

By adhering to the above back acne skin care regimen, you should be able to wear those backless tops and bathing suits you've been dreading.
