How to Get Rid of Pimples on the Back
Pimples on the back, or back acne, is a common problem for many adults. With some easy to follow steps and proper treatments for body acne, you too can get rid of pimples on the back and have clear, blemish-free skin again.
Clogged skin pores mixed with inflammation-causing bacteria often cause pimples on the back. Fluctuating hormones during puberty or during the menstrual cycle in women can make pimples on the back worse.
Tight fitting clothing can sometimes contribute to the formation of body acne as well as clothing that does not allow the skin to breathe. This is especially important during workouts in the gym, where trapped sweat and dirt can increase the formation of back acne.
Equally important is to change bed linens often. Bacteria and dirt trapped in sheets can make body acne worse. If you suspect that your skin reacts to dyes and perfumes in the laundry detergent, switch to a detergent that is dye and perfume-free.
How to Treat Pimples on the Back
It is a little bit trickier to treat back acne, since it is on your back. Sea salt can reduce back acne; so taking soothing bath with sea salt (or bath salts) may also help.
Pimples on the back can also appear after shaving. So for men who shave their backs on a regular basis, it's important to treat your back with something that will help to shed dead skin cells, so that dead skin cells won't clog up skin pores.
A good treatment for back acne will contain salicylic acid to help remove dead skin and ingredients that fight bacteria and inflammation. Since you're dealing with pimples on your back, choose a product that you can easily apply, such as Reverta Acne Spray.
