Back acne can be difficult to deal with. After all, what’s the best way to treat something you can feel but can’t even reach? But don’t worry, you don’t have to keep your shirt on at the beach. It is possible to prevent and manage back acne. Say goodbye to the angry pimples on your back and say hello to your beach-ready body!
Here are some tips that can help prevent back acne:
One of the benefits of exercise is getting better skin but if you’re not careful, all that sweat might cause you skin problems. Friction and sweat is not a good combination. One of the best back acne prevention tips is to simply shower after your workout. The longer you wear that shirt soaked in sweat, the bigger chance you’ll have back acne.
While a lot of us already follow a good routine for a smoother face, most people don’t have a skincare regimen for the rest of the body. If you already know that you are prone to back acne, you should be more conscious of preventing it. Proper skin care starts with washing and cleansing your back daily. You might even want to use an exfoliator that can help remove dead skin cells. Also, make sure not to squeeze any visible back acne because it can lead to the formation of scars.
In certain cases, backpacks and heavy gear trigger acne because of the fiction, heat and pressure. If you are prone to back acne, try to avoid carrying sports equipment, music equipment, and other heavy gear on your back. You might also want to switch from using a backpack to using a small stroller bag.

There are some medications that can cause a breakout, so observe your skin whenever your doctor prescribes something new.
