Kiss back acne goodbye

How can I get rid of the acne on the top of my back?

While bacne can be a total pain, it’s actually pretty common. To kiss that back acne goodbye, try taking a shower when you get home from sports practice or any activities that make you sweaty. Until then, use a wipe or toner to get rid of unwanted bacteria on your back. Try something with benzoyl peroxide of salicylic acid for starters.

When you’re in the shower, try using a bit of exfoliating wash on your back to help scrub off the grime and unclog those pores. Can’t reach? Invest in a back loofah with a handle for easy reach. 

If your skin doesn’t get better, your doc should be able to prescribe medication to help you out.
