How To Get Rid Of Back-Acne Naturally

If you suffer from persistent or occasional acne, it doesn’t just affect your face, but can commonly cause spots and pimples on the chest and back too. In fact, back-acne or ‘bacne’ is a problem for over 50% of acne sufferers.

From time to time many of us can suffer from an outbreak of back acne and that can make us feel self-conscious about baring our skin and being able to wear the clothes you love.

There are many different reasons why adult acne and spots suddenly appear – hormonal changes in the body, stress and even sweat can all contribute to an outbreak of facial, chest or back acne.

If you are looking for a natural way to help relieve a flare up of a spotty back, try these natural remedies:

Eat a healthy diet

Your skin is directly affected by what you eat. If your diet contains a lot of junk, or foods with trans-fats such as crisps or highly processed ingredients  this can lead to skin problems including spots. Concentrate instead on eating foods high in zinc and antioxidants such as fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and fresh fish to help your complexion thrive.

Shower after exercise

A sweaty session at the gym or doing any form of exercise should be followed by a nice warm shower to ensure that your skin is free from sweat. Oils and excess moisture can settle in the pores if left too long, leading to pimples and spots on your back, neck and shoulders.

Exfoliate like a pro

The pores on your back can be larger than in other areas of your skin, making them more prone to clogging than those on the face. The dead skin and bacteria that gets trapped in the skin can cause spots and pimples. You can avoid this by sloughing off dead skin cells to clear clogged pores about once a week using and old-fashioned loofah or a microfibre back cloth.

Sleep sounder for smoother skin

Sleep is when your body restores, replenishes and heals itself. While you sleep, your body pumps more blood to your skin promoting healing. Getting between 7-9 hours per night is recommended to get your body the rest it needs.

Have yourself some H20

Drinking water is great for digestion, circulation, absorption of nutrients and excreting toxins. It’s also essential for good skin health. Make sure you drink at least 1.5 litres per day, and more if you are exercise and perspire heavily.
