Visitors: 230

So you're looking for ways to get rid of back acne, you've tried applying the creams on your back that you use on your face with no success. That's because your back is not your face, your face doesn't have clothing over it all day like your back does. Here you will learn how to get rid of back acne by acknowledging the causes and how to overcome them.

First and foremost, your clothing, most people with bacne use very tight clothing. This makes it so your back doesn't receive the oxygen it needs to breathe, thus increases stress and makes your body think it's very dry. When your body thinks your back is dry it will produce extra oils that may cause acne on your back. If you do wear tight clothing and want to get rid of back acne, consider wearing looser clothing.

When you shower, use a body wash that ex foliates your skin, this opens up your pores and rids them of any impurities that may be trapped within. Couple this method with wearing looser clothing and you'll notice less and less acne.

Ok now what you want to do is use a natural oil-free moisturizer on your back. Remember, your back can't be dry because your body will produce oils that cause acne, so moisturizing your back will trick your body into thinking it's already hydrated. Moisturizing your back also provides a protective coating that repels impurities all day. Make it a habit to use a moisturizer on your back every day. It's recommended to use one every morning and use loose clothing so the moisturizer doesn't just smear all over your back.

Here's an added tip: drink lots and lots of water, this flushes your system clean from bacteria and impurities, which is a major cause for any acne whether it's on your face or back. Also, get at least 8 hours of sleep, insufficient sleep may correlate with producing more acne.
