If you think that only your face can be the victim of acne – you’re dead wrong. Acne found on your back (dubbed as Bacne), and the ones found on your butt are caused by sebaceous glands and hair follicles. The concept with acne on your face is fairly the same, since the oil secreted by the glands combined with dead skin cells create the acne. However, treating this kind of acne may need a different strategy. For one, you have to examine your clothes – maybe the detergent you use causes a negative reaction on your skin, or the sweat accumulation from exercising remains on your back or skin for a long period of time.
Practicing good skin care and avoiding oil-based products will definitely help reduce the appearances of acne on other body parts, as well as living a healthy lifestyle that includes a proper and balanced diet. Wear breathable clothing – preferably cotton, and shower after exercising or engaging in sports to get rid of bacteria and sweat.
If your acne continues to grow despite these tips, consider seeing a dermatologist for a more medicated response. He or she may either consider preventive or treating products to help alleviate the acne on your body.
