Acne can really be a put off, not just for other people but for yourself too. But when it start erupting on your back. Not only is bacne (back acne!) prone skin terribly difficult to care for, but also really tricky as using just any product can trigger more breakouts. If you're constantly worried about your bacne and don't quite know how to tackle it, following are some tips from us to you.
Deeply cleansing oily skin sounds like a great strategy but harsh cleansers can strip skin of it's protective barrier, leaving it vulnerable to more bacteria. Try using a balancing body wash to tackle your bacne-prone skin but not too much as to make it very dry and itchy. Then you can use a cleansing gel to soothe the inflamed skin.
Scrubbing seems like the perfect way to cleanse and purify, but for most bacne prone skin, anything more than as teensy bit of scrub is way too much. Use hands to massage skin gently and avoid abrasive ingredients. Pat skin dry afterwards with a soft cloth.
Choose skincare products wisely
When your skin is acting up, reaching for any skin-care product you can is a bad, bad idea!. Consider switching to mineral-based powders and moisturising creams which are gentle on your skin. Buy creams that won't clog pores. Trust us, you don't want that!
Avoid dairy products
Many skin experts have found a connection between dairy products and acne and have agreed that the components of milk related to testosterone hormones may stimulate oil glands, creating a breeding ground for bacne. We're not saying cut off from these, but definitely reduce your intake of dairy for better results.
