Are those pesky back acne bothering you? Summer is almost here and all that perspiration can be hard on your skin and lead to acne. However, you have nothing to worry as they are not the most difficult type of acne to get rid. Here are ways that will help you get rid of the back acne.

Here are some more tips from dermatologist, Sejal Shah

  • An evening shower can contribute to removing the dirt and oil clogged in the pores. Also, take a shower immediately after working out in the morning or evening. Leaving sweat-soaked clothes on skin surface for an extended time can lead to breakouts. For better results you can also rub a hot towel on your back. Rubbing your back with a washcloth will open the pores and help slough off the dead cells from your skin.
  • Also, make sure that your T-shirt and bra are made of fabric that wicks away sweat from your body. Do not opt for tight clothing, as the friction on your skin can also lead to acne. Ensure that you wear breathable fabrics.
  • Exfoliate your back with a scrub containing acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid. Use a loofah or brush that can reach all parts of your back so that you can clean it properly. Also, try using this cinnamon-honey paste to get rid of the pesky pimples. Here are 12 homeopathy remedies to get rid of acne.

If you experience back acne even after following these tips if you find yourself at a loss, make an appointment with a dermatologist.
