Back acne can be just as distressing as face acne. This is especially true during the summer months, when you’re more likely to be showing your back to perfect strangers at the beach!

Back acne often hurts as well, making it all the more urgent to get rid of it.

The Acne Skin Site has recently provided some helpful tips on how to get rid of back acne. Here are a few of the highlights.

Beware of Sweat!

Sweat is one of the biggest reasons why back acne forms. If you’re a dedicated gym rat your best bet is to shower the moment you’re done working out.

Be Aware of Long Hair

Long hair can produce back acne too, since your hair is a natural source of oil. Make sure your hair doesn’t spend a great deal of time touching your bare back.

Let Your Skin Breathe!

Make sure you’re wearing breathable clothing. Cotton is usually going to be your best bet.

You Guessed It

Eat right, watch your diet, and exercise. You’ve heard these tips again and again, perhaps to your dismay. But all of these things really do help with just about any skin condition you can think of.

Take an Epsom Salt Bath

The Acne Skin Site also recommends taking an Epsom salt bath once or twice a week. Epsom salt will help you deal gently with any outbreaks that occur.

Treat Your Skin!

Benzoyl peroxide is a proven acne treatment. You can handle any outbreaks with Repiderm, our mix of 16 herbal extracts, essential oils, and 4.4% benzoyl peroxide. It works equally well on both the back and the face!
