has anyone here suffering from back acne aka bacne? what product can u recommend?
I've never had a problem with bacne in my life but for some reason I've recently started developing it. I've been using my at home microdermabrasion kit on it, my buffer brush and exfoliating gloves with a charcoal foaming cleanser. It seems to be improving. I wish I could provide better advice but I'm also in the dark!
i read bioderma sebum foaming grl works wonder on bacnes too.. will try ot out :D
I have it occasionally if my skin gets oily, I just use a body scrub and that clears most of it up :)
Just washing your back with a simple soap everytime you shower can help - that cleared mine up (don't use one that imparts moisture like Dove's). It may also be hormone related (more likely if you also have chest and facial acne).
Look up acne.org they have a comprehensive guide to all forms of acne
I struggled with BACK acne all my life. It's ugly.
Despite paying an arm and leg to the beauticians who promised to help me get rid of my back acne before my wedding, it didn't help. It was also very cold and uncomfortable while they did "facials" for my back. My makeup artist had to use concealer on my back during my wedding...
Actually i am quite THANKFUL the acne don't appear on my face :D
Except when i was saying the vows, lots of people saw my back not my face. sigh
My advice what has worked for me for a fraction of the costs is 2 things
Exfoliate physically with a scrub and chemically with Salicylic Acid which also helps oil clogs/acne
You need an anti-bacteria for the back. Acne is basically caused by bacteria. Prevention is always better than the cure.
3 products you can look into.
My sister also have bacne and i just answered the same question to her recently... i'll treat you like my little sis then.
1) Life Flo Health, Salicylic Acid Spray $21.75
2) Nubian Heritage, African Black Soap, Body Wash $13
3.) Body Brush $15
Hope this helps you beautyloverbyjhade :)
HELP! I'm freaking out! I've never had any problems like this before on my body. I wouldn't say it's "acne" but I have noticed my skin is breaking out around my shoulders, chest and back all of a sudden? I can't figure out WHY! And I need a quick fix :(
Phisohex works so well, my teenage boy and girl both use it (someone on BH recommend it a few months ago and we are never without it). Get it anywhere Chemists Warehouse, Coles etc it often goes on sale and comes in various sizes. Not harsh but cleans the acne so well.
The reason can most often be hair products, particularly new ones with silicones, oils like mineral oil or other irritants like sulphates (sls). Did you use anything new on your hair like shampoo, conditioner, styling products etc?
Oh and edit to add my hubby gets it when he works out and doesn't shower reasonably quickly, his pores block up.
duality, Thank you for your reply!
So do I just use the Phisohex on the affected areas in the shower? Is it drying at all? My skin is generally fairly dry and sensitive, which is why I am not used to it doing this!!!
I haven't used anything different on my hair at all lately... the only new thing I have added to my body care routine however is QV cream but I have used this in the past without any problems.
That's interesting you say that! In the past week or so I have finally gone back to the gym so I have been working out a lot more! Maybe it's sweat that's causing this? Eeeek!
I would just apply to the affected areas so you don't waste it. My daughter has super sensitive skin, she is a total casper lol so white, she suffered eczema for years and she uses it 2 or 3 times daily and it is not harsh or drying at all. If you are in Coles, Priceline etc (not sure about Woolies I don't shop there) then smell it and you will be surprised, it has no typical acne product scent (barely any scent really).
Sounds maybe like a workout thing then, I know hubs does his workout and he doesn't like the hygiene thing of the showers at gym and sometimes it's an hour or so before he showers and next day he gets bacne and pores you could house a small family in lol.
I will definitely try it out then! Thank you for the suggestion!
Yeah I don't like showering at my gym either. I go with my boyfriend and then we usually go straight home and get dinner ready and so I don't get to shower until a couple of hours later! This may be what's causing it, eeek! Maybe I should shower as soon as I get home from the gym. I just get lazy because by the time I'm home I'm exhausted haha.
Yup That's prob all it is...I got the same...now I just go to the gym in the morning and shower right after..I still get one or two every month on my back but that's all now.
For many years I have had severe allergic reaction to normal hair colour that contains ammonia and peroxide.
I had good results both with niacinamide and vitamin C in the past, and I like using them both in my morning routine, but I'm not a fan of layering several products.
I loved this. I have dry hair but wow this changed it. It hydrated and moisturized my hair, it made it smell so nice and fresh. It gave my hair a shine.
