How to Get Rid of Back Acne (Bacne)

Do you want to know how to get rid of back acne scars and prevent them from coming back? Back acne or backne to some, is acne that develops along the back.

While we are used to seeing acne and other skin imperfections on the face, acne may also grow on the back area where it could be difficult to treat.

But luckily, there are some ingenious ways to deal with backne, some that you never thought possible. 

Try Exfoliating

Since you're basically unable to reach your back, asking someone else to scrub your back for you may be an embarassing option.

So use a back scrubber attached to a loofa or a face towel. It will help you reach very hard-to-reach areas on your back.

  1. Use warm water to loosen pores.
  2. Use mild soap to lather your loofa and then scrub.
  3. Scrub all the areas of your back even areas where there are no back acne.
  4. Rinse and then pat dry with a clean towel.


Try Facial Acne Products

Just a minor warning, if you feel severe irritation, limit the number of applications or discontinue the product.


Keep Clean

It's best to try to prevent back acne from developing in the first place.

  • Wear clean clothing all the time.
  • After sweating from activity, change your shirt at once and wipe dry sweat and dirt that has accumulated on your back.
  • If you sleep partially naked, make sure that you lie down on clean bedding.
  • Use only clean towels and face towels in caring for your skin.

Hopefully these tips will keep the backne off your back.
