Bacne, also known as the cryptonite for your backless attire. It is a common but pesky occurrence, however in this piece I will educate you on what causes it and what kills it!
The skin on our bodies is just like the skin on our face, complete with pores and sebum production, and it can be dry, oily, or “normal”. It also needs nurturing with quality bathing products and a good regimen.
Bacne is just like it sounds acne of the back. It is caused by our skin producing that excess sebum, and then causing yucky pimples, blackheads and other skin woes. Now if this was happening on our face, or somewhere more easily accessible, we would knock it out faster. However our back is much harder to reach. Which is probably why bacne is hard to conquer. However there is hope.
First start with exfoliating. If you can reach, use one of my facial or body scrubs or a long handled vegetable bristle body brush. If you go the body brush route, it’s a bathing device that is typically used for dry skin brushing, and it has the long handle for those hard to reach places like our back. Taking the long handled brush and concentrating on the back by rubbing the brush upon the back up and down and in circular motions helps to remove excess dead skin and sebum. Once a week is a good way to help clear up your back.
Besides using your body brush for a way to exfoliate your skin, you can use it to help wash your back. Wet your brush, then suds it up with a purifying soap such as the black charcoal bar in my collection. The black charcoal bar is full of activated charcoal which helps to pull the impurities out of the skin, helping to alleviate and prevent current and future bacne. The shea butter and other moisturizing ingredients, help your back stay smooth as well.
Every once in a while if you can, have someone mix some of my facial mask for you, and have it spread on your back to further purify your skin.
