Who gets back acne?
The physical appearance of back spots, whether on a man or woman, is usually unpleasant and unwelcome. Back acne is not noticeable, except in specific situations where one undresses, in intimate situations, or to do sport or use a swimming pool. In cases of severe back acne, others staring is sometimes so difficult to bear that the person isolates themselves, limiting their activities. Adults with back acne often find it difficult to show their back in public, yet the fact they have back acne is absolutely not linked to a lack of hygiene or care!
What are the solutions for back acne?
As regards hygiene, use a product suitable for acne-prone skin on the face but also on the body! Stop using soap that dries the skin, which paradoxically causes excess sebum. Instead, use a gentle, soap-free cleanser. Wipe your back thoroughly after a workout. Avoid allowing hair products to drip onto the back as some can have a comedogenic effect and cause back spots.
