Back acne or “Backne” is very common among teens and young adults – especially in boys. Athletic clothing which may trap sweat and dead skin cells (such as abrasive gear like football shoulder pads) and a general over-secretion of the oil glands in this area can cause breakouts.
- You can treat back acne the same way you treat it on your face – with Clear Start™ products! Don't over-cleanse the skin with harsh soap, vigorous scrubbing movements, or rough loofahs or back brushes, as this will exacerbate the situation. Wash with Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash, a soap-free cleanser designed for your face and wherever you get breakouts.
- Don't reach for a mentholated astringent, which can have a drying S.D. Alcohol base (which over-strips skin). Instead, grab Breakout Clearing All Over Toner, a refreshing skin toner that helps control oil and bacteria. Its convenient spray bottle helps you spritz hard-to-reach areas effectively.
- Gentle exfoliation can really help breakouts – so reach for Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub This gentle breakout-fighting, pore-refining scrub and masque contains purifying clays to pull excess oil from skin, while Silica scrubs away dulling surface cells.
- Treat the affected area while you sleep with Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment.
