Bacne, short for back acne is quite simply a breakout on your back. Just like the skin on the face, your back is home to a number of glands that excrete oil known as sebum. From excessive oil production to friction from clothing, there are many causes for bacne. But here are four simple ways you can prevent and treat bacne.
Use an acne-medicated body wash
Washing with an acne-specific cleanser will help to decrease acne pimples and inflammation quickly. Look for ingredients like salicylic acid to open and cleanse clogged pores and decrease inflammation.
Wear breathable clothing
To avoid trapping of swear and heat, such as cotton and linen rather than polyblend fabrics.
Your skin needs moisture especially after a deep cleaning wash with strong ingredients like salicylic acid, to avoid your pores producing oil to compensate for the lack of it.
Eat your vitamins
Consume foods that are rich in vitamin A, like sweet potatoes and apricots, as these help your pores and also get rid of dead skin cells, and also promoting cell turnover.
