Hard to hide, these nasty acne pimples can appear without warning in the back and become really annoying on a daily basis. But did you know that a few small changes in your routine can help eliminate them?
1 / Preserve your back from cosmetics
Certain body products can be comedogenic, and are likely to play a role in the creation of acne pimples. Massage oils, a moisturizer or sunscreen, and even the shampoo or conditioner used ... it can work against you!
First tip, when you wash your hair and apply a mask or conditioner, be sure to put it on the side, on one of your shoulders. Thus, the material and the shampoo residues will not risk stay on the back skin and create imperfections.
In summer, prefer sunscreens to quick dry or ultra light, with a good protection index: they will not stay on the epidermis long enough to clog the pores.
2 / Don't forget to wash your back
It may sound silly but ... do you wash your back well? Area slightly difficult to access, however not forget it ! Treat it as if it were part of your face, especially if you are prone to acne. Take the time to exfoliate with a scrub that is not too aggressive for the body, then wash it with your shower gel or mild soap daily. Rinse thoroughly so that no residue of the exfoliant, soap or shampoo remains.
If you do sports, never skip the shower step, even if you have the impression that you did not sweat much. The particles of sweat, mixed with the friction of clothing on the skin do not mix well, and can create small inflammations which turn into pimples.
3 / Be careful what you eat
And yes, we know: eat too much fat can affect the quality of the skin and the multiplication of imperfections. Try to eat a balanced diet and above all, limit the intake of dairy products. Indeed, milk, yogurt, cheese ... can unfortunately cause pimples. No way to eliminate everything of course, but if you are used to consuming a lot, this may be an explanation for your ugly pimples.
Finally, tell yourself that the appearance of acne in the back can also be genetic: thank you dad, thank you mom. In this case, try cleansing cosmetics and non-irritant recommended by your dermatologist for your back, to fight against pimples without attacking the epidermis.
