How to get rid of back acne

Share:

Back acne might be more prevalent on the body than you’d think. Most people have to deal with zits on their faces, but they can appear anywhere on the skin that has a pore. It’s a comon skin condition that can be taken care of by adding a few extra steps into your skincare routine. SKINNEY Medspa is featured on Mindbodygreen.com in an article titled, “How To Get Rid of Back Acne: 12 Tips From Dermatologists.” Professionals share their best ways to prevent and help your skin recover from back acne.

Professionals say back acne is more comon with people who already deal with it on other parts of their bodies. Zits are zits. If your pores are clogged, a pimple is more than likely going to pop up. Genetics and hormones are a main trigger for acne. Stress, lifestyle choices, and your diet can also be factors. Back and face acne can have similar treatments. The skin on our body is tougher than the face, so it has to be able to tolerate stronger treatments.

tips from the professionals

Back acne prevention is important. Many men and women endure an intense workout at least a few days during the week. Sweat and oils build up on the skin, so it’s important to always take a shower after. Umbareen Mahmood is a M.D., board-certified plastic surgeon and cosmetic injector at SKINNEY Medspa. “Anyone is vulnerable to acne on the back, particularly those who play sports or do activities that cause sweating or rubbing of clothing or athletic gear,” said Mahmood. After an intense workout, the sweat and oil will just sit on the skin. “It is extremely important to pay attention to meticulous hygiene, especially showering immediately after a workout or any activity that causes the back to sweat,” she added.

Professionals also suggest using a body wash with salicylic acid. It’s similar to the one you might use on your face, this time it’s for the body. The ingredient is great because it cleans the pores and exfoliates the surface of the skin. It penetrates into your pores and removes oil. It can be a good option for people who deal with oily skin. It works particularly well for treating blackheads and whiteheads.

Know when to see your dermatologist. If your back acne is starting to cause potentially major issues, schedule an appointment. If the acne is inflamed, painful, and has the potential to scar, professionals suggest finding out what treatment options you have.
