Ten Tips to Get Rid of Back Acne
If you suffer from back acne or body acne, then finding a treatment product that will help you to get rid of back acne is one of your top priorities. However, products are only part of the solution to getting rid of unsightly back and body acne. How can you get a clear back and body? Here are ten important tips to get rid of back acne.
Number Ten: Wear Natural Fabrics
One of the primary causes of back acne is the trapping of dirt and oil against your skin. Many synthetic fabrics (including many fabrics that you wear when working out and sweating) donít allow your skin to ďbreatheĒ or allow sweat and oil to evaporate from the surface of your skin. When possible, opt for natural fabrics like cotton or even hemp. These fabrics allow a healthy stream of air to hit the surface of your skin and help remove dirt and oil into the air rather than leaving it trapped against your body.
Number Nine: Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing
Similar to the tip above, you want to do everything possible to ensure that youíre not trapping dirt and oil against your skin for long periods of time. This means opting for looser fitting clothing whenever possible. Especially as youíre beginning to heal your back and body acne, looser fitting clothing can make a big difference in the speed with which your back and body acne clears up.
Number Eight: Exfoliate
While exfoliation is always an important part of any acne treatment regimen, itís even more important when it comes to a back acne treatment regimen. Why is this? The skin on your back is rougher than the skin on your face. Therefore, when dead skin cells build up, they can clog the larger pores on your back more powerfully, and they are less likely to shed off on their own. Unlike your face, which itís better to exfoliate with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), your back can take a two-punch approach to exfoliation. Using acne products with AHAs and BHAs can exfoliate skin cells from both the top of your skin and beneath the skinís surface, and a textured cleanser or loofah can exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface. Murad Canada Acne Body Wash uses Date Seed Powder to create a textured exfoliating cleanser to strip dry, dead cells from the surface of your back before they can clog pores and cause acne blemishes.
Number Seven: Eat and Drink Lots of Water
Healthy skin is hydrated skin. Be sure that youíre both eating and drinking a great deal of water each day. By eating a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, youíll not only get skin-improving antioxidants but youíll also continue to hydrate during the day. Remember, staying hydrated doesnít mean drinking soda or coffee or sugar-based beverages all day. Your body needs water to be healthy, so give it pure water. Not only will you feel better, but your skin will be healthier.
Number Six: Donít Try to Tan Your Back Acne Away
One of the most common mistakes made when trying to get rid of back and body acne is to ďtan the breakout away.Ē Yes, tanning your skin either outside or in a tanning bed will dry your skin out which will result in the temporary disappearance of back and body acne breakouts. Also, because your skin will darken, any post-acne marks or acne scars will also be concealed. However, youíre also doing long-term, significant damage to your skin that youíll pay the price for later in the form of early aging, age spots and sun spots, and potentially even skin diseases. Donít sacrifice the long-term health of your skin for a short-term concealing and temporary healing of acne breakouts.
Number Five: Eat a Healthy Acne Diet
You are what you eat, and thatís extra true when it comes to the health of your skin. While it is a myth that a single serving of French fries or a chocolate bar will result in an instant breakout, what you put into your body does impact the overall health of your skin. Particularly if you have hormonal back and body acne, you do want to avoid heavy doses of caffeine which can stimulate the adrenal gland and lead to even more overproduction of skin cells and oil. More importantly, you want to eat a diet thatís high in fresh fruits so that youíre getting a diet full of antioxidants, which create healthy skin. While itís always better to get your antioxidants through fresh food, you can also consider vitamin supplements to enhance your healthy diet!
Number Four: Use the Right Acne Medications
Youíll also want to be sure that youíre using the right back acne treatment medications for your skin. Avoid back and body washes with ingredients that are too harsh, such as Benzoyl Peroixde, and instead focus on ingredient such as Salicylic Acid that will help to stop acne at its root cause Ė clogged pores that have happened because of an overproduction of skin cells. You want to find topical acne medications that heal your back and body acne without over-drying your skin or creating further skin damage.
Number Three: Donít Use a Backpack
Do you use a backpack to carry things around during the day? If you have back and body acne breakouts, then you need to break the habit of the back pack! Backpacks, not unlike tight clothing, trap dirt and oil against your skin. As an added bonus, that dirt and oil is then pressed against your skin by the weight of the backpack. While it may not be as trendy (or even as convenient), use alternative methods for carrying things around if youíre prone to breakouts on your back or body.
Number Two: Buy a Handled Sponge or Loofah
Half of treating back and body acne is reaching your back and body acne! Invest a few dollars in buying a loofah or sponge with a handle so that you can effectively reach all of your breakout spots. Murad Canada Clarifying Acne Body Spray includes a revolutionary 360 spray nozzle that can help you target even the hardest-to-reach breakouts.
Number One: Donít Forget Back Acne Scars and Post-Acne Marks
Finally, donít forget that even after youíve cleared up your back acne, you may still have acne scars or post-acne marks that need to be healed. Back acne scar treatments can be accomplished via a visit to a dermatologist, and fading post-acne marks on your back can be accomplished by using Murad Canada Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, with the strongest skin lightener available without a prescription. Donít just heal breakouts, heal the souvenirs of breakouts.
Back acne is nobodyís best friend, but it can be defeated! Use these ten tips and be responsible about hygiene and lifestyle choices and you, too, can have a clear back and body.

I am 21 years old and I have been battling body acne since I can remember. I was always so frustrated because my face has never really had bad acne but my back and chest have always been terrible! I have tried anything you can imagine to help but nothing worked. I started using Murad body wash and body spray about two or three months ago. . I cannot believe the results I've got! Within the first couple of weeks my back cleared up. . . of course every now and then I'll get a small break outs but nothing like it was. I'll buy this product again! Buy Now.
Janell, Age 26-35, Texas, USA
This product, along with the Murad Gentle Acne Treatment Gel, worked wonders for me! I have extremely sensitive skin; however, I could use this body wash twice per day, followed by the treatment gel. The key is to be consistent. Buy Now.
GennyS, Age 36-45, Florida, USA
This product is the best I have found on the market and I've tried everything from over the counter to prescription meds. None have worked as well as this body wash. It is worth every penny to have that bathing suit ready backside for summer. Thank you again for creating such wonderful products. Buy Now.
Murad Clarifying Body Spray
Joquin, Age 36-45, California, USA
It was time to order Clarifying Body Spray again. I usually order two at a time. At first I was unable to locate it on the product list (my fault). I got concerned! Sure enough, I did not look in the correct area (Acne). This is absolutely the best product of it's kind. I love the 360 degree spray, you can reach any area you need, especially important area is my back. This product WORKS! Buy Now!
Kb22, Age 19-25, California, USA
Why did I wait SO long to get this?! I just hit 23 years old and started getting painful breakouts on my back and shoulders. Nothing was working. I wasted quite a bit of money on cheaper products, trying to avoid buying this more expensive one. Six hours in I saw a major improvement. 24 hours later, I am left with only about 40% of what I had breakout wise. I cannot wait to see a week from now! There will be nothing! Buy Now!
