Summer is finally returning to Chelsea! People are starting to shed their winter layers and embrace the sundresses, tank tops, flip flops and swimsuits of summer. While for most people this is a time of celebration as they welcome back the warmth of the sun on their skin, for those who are suffering from back acne, it can be a time of anxiety. Back acne can make you feel like you need to cover up instead of showing some skin. It can cause you embarrassment, and in the worst cases, it can even be painful. You aren’t without options, though! There are a number of things you can do to help treat the skin on your back and get rid of acne so you can enjoy wearing all of those cute summer fashions.

How to Treat Back Acne at Home

Take an Epsom salt bath.

Run a bath of warm water and add some Epsom salts to the mix. Get in and soak your back in the bath for at least 20 minutes. The Epsom salts may help reduce any inflammation and help with any pain that you are experiencing from the acne.

Use cleansers with salicylic acid.

When you shower, use a gentle cleanser with a 10% salicylic acid solution in it. This will help clear up the acne and prevent it from coming back.

Drink lots of water.

Increase your water intake in order to help your body flush out toxins that could be contributing to your acne problem. Drinking plain water is best; stay away from sugary sports drinks or soda.

Cut out the junk food.

Your back acne could be made worse by the foods you are eating. You may have a mild allergy to something you are eating and not realize it, especially to chemicals or preservatives. Cut out the junk food and eat healthier.

Reduce your stress.

Easier said than done, we know, but stress could be one of the things making your acne worse. Try to eliminate some stress from your life. It’s not just good for your back, it’s good for your overall health, too.
