Acne is a skin problem that affects millions of people, both men and women, whether in childhood or in adulthood. Although it usually appears on face, it is also possible to have acne on back, and today we give you some home remedies to get rid of them effectively.
The most recommended thing to do if you have a problem of this type, or any other skin problem, is to consult a dermatologist, since your specific situation may be different from what is common in other people.
That’s why we tell you how to get rid of acne on your back in seven steps.
1. Apple cider vinegar
Contains acetic acid, which when absorbed by the skin eliminates sebum. Mix equal parts apple cider vinegar and water in a bowl and rub over the affected back area with a cotton pad. Do this every night before going to bed.
2. Lavender essential oil
Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial power makes it very effective in treating this problem. Soak a piece of absorbent cotton in lavender essential oil and rub directly on the pimples. Let the skin absorb it naturally.
Honey’s compounds balance the skin’s natural pH and decrease excess sebum. Apply organic bee honey on the affected area of acne on the back and let it act for 20 minutes. Rinse with water using gentle, circular motions. You can do this daily.
4. Baking soda
Baking soda is one of the most used ingredients for home remedies because it is great for both beauty treatments and cleaning or hygiene. In this case, moisten a little with water or lemon juice and rub on the back, with circular and gentle movements. Let it act for 30 minutes and rinse with cold water and neutral soap. Repeat at least 3 times a week.
Oatmeal has a very interesting exfoliating action that is perfect for removing sebum and impurities from the skin. Moisten some oatmeal with milk or water and rub on the back, with soft and circular massages.
6. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is beneficial for getting rid of acne (including back acne) because its anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties help soothe and protect irritated and red skin. Pure aloe vera gel can be used directly on your acne back to help soothe red skin and can also reduce the size of inflamed pores.
7. Sugar scrub
This sugar scrub includes lemon juice, which contains alpha hydroxy acid, a natural chemical peel for the skin as it dissolves dead skin cells.
Mix 1/4 cup organic brown sugar with the juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 tablespoon raw honey. You should have the consistency of a thick paste. Gently massage over the acne prone area of the skin on the back in circular motions. Leave on for about 5 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Use the sugar scrub on the back 1-2 times a week to remove dirt from the pores and help prevent further acne breakouts on the back.
