How to Prevent and Treat Bacne

During the summer months, it is very common to experience acne breakouts on the back. This is predominantly referred to as “bacne.” Bacne is unattractive and especially visible in halter tops and bikinis. Therefore, it is important that you treat your back just as you would treat your face for the next couple months!

This thirty minute treatment includes a deep cleaning, steam therapy, exfoliation, extractions if necessary, a detoxing mud mask to remove free-radicals, toxins and pollution, and a high frequency treatment to kill bacteria, control the production of sebum and allow purging to occur.

Lotus Skin Care Center & Medi Spa( recommends showering directly after a workout, or any activity that leaves you with sweat on your back. When showering, be sure to wash and rinse your back well AFTER you have already rinsed the conditioner out of your hair with cool water. It will also be beneficial to use a body wash containing salicylic acid on the back area, and a body scrub or exfoliant weekly. Try to use unscented body lotions and unscented laundry detergent during the summer months as well. Lastly, keeping your hair off your back as much as possible with a hair tie or clip will help. Hair products, hair spray, etc. can be irritating to the skin on your back, causing breakouts.
