How to Get Rid of Back Acne

Most people struggle with acne breakouts, pimples, blackheads or have a hard time getting rid of blemishes that appear on the face. Unfortunately, breakouts like the ones listed above don’t just occur on the face but all over the body and can make one feel insecure. A common area of the body that acne may appear is the back. People often refer to this as back acne or ‘bacne.’

Back acne occurs when the dead skin cells and oil build up blocking pores and causing inflammation. When the skin is neglected and untreated, the blockage results into a blackhead and once bacteria has entered, it becomes inflamed and turns into a pimple. Since the back is a difficult place to reach, it can be harder to see and treat.
