Back and neck acne is just as unpleasant a problem as facial acne. Acne-prone skin usually gets breakouts on the face, neck, and back.
Acne on the back occurs as a result of circumstances similar to facial acne - increased secretion of sebaceous glands, oiliness, clogging of pores, accumulation of bacteria and dead cells.
You can reduce skin inflammation caused by acne in several natural ways. Who are they?
Cleansing and exfoliation
One of the most important things for acneic skin on the back is deep cleansing and exfoliation. This helps to unclog clogged pores by reducing inflammation and the conditions for pus to form.
Wear loose clothes
Soaked clothes made of artificial materials are harmful to the skin, even more so if you have acne. Wear loose clothing made from natural breathable fabrics such as cotton.
Baking soda is an excellent natural exfoliant. Make a paste of a few spoonfuls of baking soda dissolved in a little water to make a thick mixture. Rub it in circular motions into the skin of the back. You can add some lemon juice and cinnamon to it, as well as honey, which have strong antibacterial properties.
Oats are a great natural remedy for acne both on the face and back. It has the property of absorbing sebum from the skin and suppressing its increased secretion afterwards. Mix it with some water, honey and fresh lemon juice. Rub into the skin with massaging movements for 10 minutes. Then let the mixture work for another 30 minutes on your back lying on your stomach.Do this 1-2 times a week.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Clean the back well first. Next, mix equal parts water and vinegar. Apply to the skin of the back using a soaked cotton pad. Rub for 6-7 minutes.
Tea tree oil
This essential oil has strong skin soothing properties. Massage with tea tree oil helps reduce acne as well as scarring.
Be careful with your diet
Drink plenty of water to make your body reduce sebum secretion. Avoid overly fatty foods rich in saturated fat, trans fat and hydrogenated fat.
Garlic has antibacterial and antifungal effects. Crush a few cloves of garlic into a very fine paste. Massage your back with it.
