Back acne. What can be done.

Maybe nobody but you can see it, but if you have acne on your back you’ll still want to get rid of it.  While there’s no substitute for enlisting professional help, there are some things you can do to improve the acne on your back or maybe even make it go away completely.

  1. Cut out sugar: It is important to note that medical professionals do not recommend any special diet for acne but it is known that a diet high in sugar can exacerbate acne.  Cutting it out of your diet is something that you can do right now.
  2. Avoid anything that rubs against the skin: Backpacks or certain styles of handbags can rub against the skin, irritating it and causing it to sweat more.  Avoid backpacks and try to carry bags that can be worn on the shoulder.
  3. Be gentle with your skin: Avoid harsh body scrubs, back brushes and loofahs.  These can irritate and damage the skin and may make acne worse.
