The back has one of the most acne prone areas of the skin because it is exposed to sweat. This problem not only gives you appearance trouble, but it also makes leaning on your back uncomfortable. Make your back acne free by following the next advices:
1. Change the Sheets Weekly
Your bed sheets are contaminated with oil, dead skin and bacteria that feed on both of them. This dirt promotes acne breakout on your back. Placing a washed sheet on the bed weekly can help you eliminate this problem.
2. Keep Your Hair Conditioner Away from Your Skin
Thick hair products are full of oils that can clog your skin pores and cause acne. When washing off the conditioner off your hair, lean your head in front of your body away from your back. Then wash your body well with soap or exfoliate it to remove any hair product residues off it.
3. Go Easy on the Moisturizer
Dermatologists insist on the importance of applying a moisturizer on your skin to protect it from the effects of dryness. However, body parts like the back and chest need little to no moisturizers at all because they have many oil glands.
4. Apply an Apple Cider Vinegar Toner
The pH of apple cider vinegar can help dry skin oiliness and clear blemishes. Make an apple cider vinegar toner by filling a spray bottle to its third in vinegar and fill its rest with water. Apply this toner using a cotton ball daily before sleep.
5. Use another Laundry Detergent
Chemicals found in laundry detergents and softeners can irritate the skin of your back and promote the emergence of acne. Use laundry detergents that have the least amounts of scents.
6. Wear Breathable Cotton
Avoid fabrics like spandex as they trap oils and sweat near the skin and irritates it.
