While women are often told how to eliminate pesky pimples on their faces, it may be harder to find decent tips on eliminating acne on one’s back, or bacne, as it’s more commonly known. Luckily, Allure.com recently gathered some helpful information that may help gals with this skin condition.
“Half of the problem for skin in that area is that it’s just plain hard to reach to apply any creams,” the news source reports. However, fighting bacne is not a lost cause.
According to the news provider, ladies should look for a product that contains benzoyl peroxide, as peroxide kills the bacteria. Dermalogica mediBac Special Clearing Booster is a five percent benzoyl peroxide concentrate formulated for the topical treatment of breakouts.
Once skin has absorbed the product, treat the area with an acne-fighting toner, such as SkinMedica Acne Treatment Toner, to keep out bacteria that may form later in the day.
However, since bacne is in such a hard to reach area, the news provider recommends a few ways to successfully put on the products. A spatula can be used to easily apply the benzoyl peroxide formula to one’s back, and toner can be poured into a spray bottle for an extra-easy application.
