SAY GOODBYE TO BACK ACNE
Back acnes are mostly caused due to sweat accumulation which leads to clogged pores and hair follicles. When it comes to back acne, prevention is better than treatment. Here are a few suggestions as to how you can avoid it.
To get rid of back acne, use a body scrub with salicylic acid twice or thrice a week to clear dead skin cells and clogged pores. Since the skin on your back is much thicker than that of your face, exfoliation is imperative. Make sure not to overdo it.
Keep a clean head
Sometimes the dandruff from your hair can fall on your back and create acne. That’s why make sure to use good anti-dandruff shampoos on a regular habit to keep your hair clean and control your back acne.
Work on your diet
Cut down on foods with a high glycemic index like white bread and potatoes for healthier skin. On the other hand, eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. These work as anti-inflammatories for your skin. Incorporating more Omega 3 contents in your food habit is a great choice, as well.
Try a saltwater bath
Epsom salts relax your muscle and help your skin. By soothing the skin, Epsom salts can help to reduce redness including acne. You may add a cup of Epsom salts or half a cup of plain, unflavored oats to your bath water and then soak in it for 20-30 minutes. This is a great practice to prevent skin breakage issues.
Nobody likes acne, and getting it on your back is even more frustrating. All these habits will control or reduce your acne if you do it consistently and patiently. So don’t worry, we got your back.
