Acne is one of the worst things that may happen to anyone. Be it facial acne or back acne (bacne), the embarrassment which one has to face due to this is just the same, no less! But then did you know that you can use the same steps to treat bacne which you use to treat acne on face to get rid of back acne! Well well we give you a few guidelines which will help you to deal with back acne problems in a better way!
Cleanse the back - The first step which you need to follow to treat back acne is to wash your back well. The area must be cleansed daily and of course with right products. To wash your back, you need to find such body wash which contains acne-fighting elements like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid. Tea-tree oil is a natural alternative.

Exfoliate the area - To slough off the dead skin cells, you need to exfoliate. This also helps in fading away of the acne marks at the back. You can purchase a good body scrub available in the market or make a scrub at home by getting a mixture of equal amounts of virgin olive oil and sugar.

But then exfoliating the back is not as easy as exfoliating the face is. You need to be flexible and it will take a lot of effort too. In case you cant reach your back, then buy a body brush with long handle, this will help you to exfoliate your back.

Cover up the scars with concealer - The above mentioned processes of cleansing as well as exfoliating the back will deliver you the desired results, but yes that would take some time. Now, if you are looking for an instant remedy, as you badly wanna wear that backless dress tonight, then go for a heavy concealer. It would help you to cover up the scars left by acne. Have you ever tried out Dermablend? As per various beauty journals, this product can even hide birthmark or hyperpigmentation. So you need a product of this kind.
