How To Get Rid Of Bacne? Back Acne Causes & Treatment
The weather is as hot as ever, but you’re avoiding racerback tops and spaghetti tops like the plague because of the acne on your back – does this sound like you? We all know what bacne can look like. As if acne on the face wasn’t enough, now your back is also red, bumpy, and swollen. Sometimes the pimples cause the back to feel tender to the touch, or it can even feel itchy.
But all you want to do is to flaunt a smooth and clear back at the next beach party. Sounds like an impossible task? If you’re facing back acne (or “bacne”) problems, we got you. Hang tight to learn what may be causing your bacne, and what you can do to get rid of it.
Causes of bacne
Like acne on the face, bacne is similarly caused by clogged pores which then get inflamed. Things like sweat, dead skin cells, and bacteria can block pores on the back, resulting in the formation of pimples and redness.
Think: do you often do sports, carry a backpack, or have long hair that covers your back? These are all common scenarios that are favourable for bacne to occur. Sweat, heat, and friction are all ingredients that contribute to bacne – often without you realising.
Sometimes, it could even just be an issue of not scrubbing your back clean enough, or not changing to a fresh towel often enough.
Tips for reducing bacne
We all wish there’s an instant fix for bacne! But most solutions will take some time, especially if you are aiming to be totally bacne-free. Some simple steps you can take are to keep your back clean, and avoid actions that will cause sweat, oil, and dirt to build-up on your back.
It’s best to think of actions you do that could be the primary cause of your bacne, and avoid them. No idea what you could be doing wrong? Try these for a start:
- Shower immediately after working out
- Cleanse and exfoliate your back regularly
- Avoid wearing skin-tight tops
- Avoid carrying backpacks for extended periods
- Keep your hair off your back
Your solution to bacne concerns
Then, there are cosmetic and medical approaches to treating bacne, which may include topical ointments or aesthetic treatments. Over-the-counter general acne creams or acne-fighting cleansers can also be used on your back to kill off acne-causing bacteria.
If you’re looking for something stronger with more immediate effects, getting treatment at a beauty salon or clinic is your best bet!
