5 Helpful Tips to Treat Back or Shoulder Acne
Many people are searching for solutions on how to help with acne on their back or shoulders. The season is changing and in spring and summer with the arrival of hot weather and the beach season, having pimples on one’s back and chest can be embarrassing and cause low self-esteem. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, “Acne develops where we have the most sebaceous glands. These glands make sebum and are found in the greatest number on our face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and upper arms.”
This article will provide some helpful tips to control breakout on back or shoulders:
Tip 1: Keep a daily skin care routine
Start a daily skin care routine for your back after your shower and you can begin to have the clear back and chest that you desire.
Tip2: Make Sure You Have the Right Cleansers and Toner
Always wash and cleanse your back & shoulders thoroughly by using a gentle water-soluble cleanser and facial toner.
Tip3: Don’t be afraid to use facial skin care on you back
Deep pore cleaning masks are excellent choice for body acne. Clearing masks that contain salicylic acid, bentonite clay and glycolic acid help to purify skin, remove excess oil, exfoliate, cleanse pores, and clear blackheads. Regular face masks will also help to prevent further breakouts of blemishes. Some facial masks with anti-inflammatory ingredients will soothe and calm skin and will help to maintain a clearer complexion.
Tip 4: Make exfoliating part of your weekly skin care routine
Exfoliate your shoulders and back with a gentle scrub, back brush or an AHA Solution to peel of dead skin cells that can also clog pores.
Tip 5: Shower after your workouts
Take a shower and switch in to clean and dry clothes and let your skin dry for a few extra minutes can prevent big skin hassles later.
