Acne is a persistent skin problem for which medicine is still unsure of the exact cause of its occurrence. This inflammatory skin disease has a very complex mechanism, which in different people is triggered and aggravated by different circumstances, external and internal.
Like acne on the face, acne on the body, especially on the back, can be extremely stubborn. In order to positively affect back pimples and reduce them, it is necessary to make some changes in your lifestyle that will help.
Be careful with sweating
Sweating and retention of sweat on the back is one of the causes of acne in this part of the body. Wear clothes made of breathable natural materials that allow sweat to be absorbed and not stay on the skin along with dead cells.
Do not use moisturizing creams and lotions with heavy formulas that clog pores and create conditions for acne. Instead, hydrate with products with a light and fast-absorbing texture.
Change the sheets every few days
Sheets and covers become soaked with sweat, dead skin cells, sebum and other excrement. When you don't change the bedclothes often enough, these impurities return to the skin and affect it badly. The result is inflammation, irritation, redness, acne.
Avoid spandex material
Lycra or elastane is the trade name of the synthetic material spandex, from which many sports clothes are made, but not only. Avoid it as much as possible, because it causes a complete retention of sweat on the skin, which is a prerequisite for inflammation.
Bath with Epsom or sea s alt
S alts have a good effect on the skin and help it recover from inflammatory processes in it. Epsom s alt reduces redness and helps clear acne spots faster.
Exfoliate the back
To clean your facial skin well, you probably exfoliate it at least once a week. You need to do the same with the skin on your back to make sure you stimulate the skin cell renewal process. It is preferable to use salicylic acid, which has a gentle exfoliating effect.
Treat with tea tree oil
Tea tree essential oil has very strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that have a beneficial effect on acneic skin and soothe it. Apply to the affected areas 2-3 times a week in the evening before going to bed.
