Here's some tips how to get rid of back acne :
  • Take Proper Showering
    Showering daily and using mild soap or body wash to slough away excess oil, dirt and dead skin will help to prevent acne and blemishes from occurring. Using gentle exfoliating scrubs once or twice a week will also make a difference. Take care not to overwash your body as you can end up stripping too much natural oil away from the skin.
  • Wash Your Hair
    Wash your hair regularly to keep the natural oils that occur in the hair from getting onto your back. Daily shampooing is recommended, but for some that has adverse effects on the health of their hair. If you cannot shampoo your hair each day tie it up to keep it from transferring oil onto your back.
  • Exfoliate the Skin
    For a natural made scrub, squeeze one grapefruit into a bowl and add 1 1/2 cups of white sugar along with 1/2 a cup of coarse salt. Massage this into the acne on your back and pat dry. You can also use sponges or loofahs to help scrub off dead skin and remove excess oils.
  • Eat a Healthy Diet
    Food may directly or indirectly cause back acne. A balanced diet, avoiding simple sugars, eating more fresh and raw vegetables, fruits and lean proteins can give your skin cells vitality and a healthy glow.

Meditation and exercise are two great stress-busters to incorporate into your lifestyle.
