Acne can be frustrating to deal with. Unfortunately, getting pimples isn’t limited to your teen years, or to your face. Pimples can appear on any part of your body, including your back.

Acne on your face or your back could be reasons such as hormones, medications, stress and other factors. Sometimes a visit to the dermatologist is necessary to get breakouts under control. 

However, here are some steps you can take that may also help to prevent acne on your back.

Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating is a great way to cleanse your skin. Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin and prevent your pores from getting clogged. Clogged pores are one of the main reasons for acne breakouts. You can use bath tools like loofah and dry brushes to exfoliate. These tools when used with acne exfoliating body wash can help with acne.  Even after you are acne-free, you should consider continuing to exfoliate periodically. It will prevent acne breakouts in the future. It is important to note that you do not over exfoliate, otherwise it might strip your skin of natural oil, making it prone to even more skin problems.

Wear Cotton Clothes

The clothes you wear every day could also be leading to breakouts. A harsh fabric rubbing against your skin along with the sweat can cause acne. Wearing cotton can prevent further spreading of the acne. Cotton clothes allow more air through the fabric unlike the synthetic clothes that don't soak up sweat from your body as cotton does. It is advisable to opt for loose fitting clothing as it lets your skin breathe and will wick away the sweat.

Try Cleansing Pads

Thick and soft cleansing pads make for a good  back acne treatment as it  cleanses and removes the dirt from your body without being too harsh on the skin. Cleansing pads also cleanse  pores and get all the excess dirt and oils off of  skin.

Use An Acne Spray

Consider using an acne spray for your back acne. Since it's in a spray bottle, it is easier to reach your problem areas. Acne spray is a body exfoliator that treats your acne. It prevents redness and future breakouts.

Shower After Workout

Don't let the sweat and dirt sit on your body after a rigorous workout session. Even if you don't see the sweat after you are done with your exercise, you still need to shower, otherwise it will gradually clog your pores, leading to back acne. You can also use some acne exfoliating wash to be sure your body is thoroughly cleansed, and your pores are unclogged.

Don't Let Conditioner Sit On Your Back.

You can not escape periodic hair washing, but you need to be careful with your generosity in applying conditioner. Conditioner sitting on your back for too long irritates your skin. If you are deep conditioning your hair, wrap it up instead of letting it sit in your back. Even though it's in your hair, it can still irritate your skin. When you are washing your hair, rinse the conditioner out as quickly as you can. While you are rinsing your hair, try not to get the conditioner on your back.


Following these simple routine can gradually help you reduce back acne. If you still have back acne after these steps, you may need to go to a doctor for treatment.
