11 Tips to Banish Acne on Your Back & Bottom

How to Treat & Prevent Bacne & Buttne

As if breakouts on our faces aren’t enough, so many of us are also plagued by acne 
on our backs and bottoms (fondly referred to as “bacne” and “buttne”, respectively). 

Acne can occur anywhere on your body where you have hair follicles and oil 
secreting glands, not just on your face. Accumulation of dead skin cells or buildup 
from products like lotions and body washes can clog these glands and pores. 
When the pore becomes clogged, bacteria get trapped, causing acne to form. The 
face, chest, back and bottom are the prime acne areas (and if you have acne on 
your face, you’re also more likely to have it on your back or bottom). Hormonal 
imbalances may also contribute to the formation of body acne, which is why if 
you’re experiencing severe breakouts, it’s best to visit your dermatologist to rule out 
other possible health problems. 

If your back and bottom acne is mild to moderate, consider trying these at-home 
remedies. Like with acne on your face, your approach to treating the acne on your 
back and bottom should be multifaceted and should also include adopting habits 
that help prevent breakouts from happening in the first place. 

To help clear up and prevent acne on your back and bottom, check out these 11 
expert tips below.  


Shower Regularly & Use The Right Cleanser
First, make sure that you are showering regularly, and if you have oily skin, you 
need to shower daily. Also, after a workout, resist the urge to hang out in your 
workout clothes and instead hop straight into the shower to wash off the sweat and 
bacteria on your skin. 

When showering, use a body cleanser that contains an acne-fighting ingredient like 
benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid that will work to treat your acne while preventing 
new acne. 


Exfoliate 
Exfoliating two to three times per week when you shower will help reduce the 
buildup of dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Gently exfoliate 
using an acne-fighting body scrub like one containing salicylic acid. For extra 
benefit, you can wear exfoliating gloves when doing this, just be sure your gloves, 
loofahs, sponges are nice and clean so you’re not spreading bacteria as you go. 


Use a Body Brush
Sometimes we fail to properly cleanse our back in particular because it has lots of 
hard to reach areas. So when cleansing or exfoliating your back, use a soft body 
brush with a long handle or use another device designed to help you cleanse hard 
to reach areas. Be mindful to scrub gently; scrubbing too hard can cause further 
irritation and breakouts. 


Topical Treatment
After showering, gently towel off and then apply a gel or cream containing benzoyl 
peroxide or sulfur to help treat the acne. Keep in mind that benzoyl peroxide and 
other acne treatments can permanently bleach or stain fabrics so it’s best to let the 
treatment dry completely for 10 minutes or so and then to sleep in loose-fitting 
light-colored clothing. 

If your breakouts are on areas of your skin where you cannot reach, opt for a spray 
skin treatment—Neutrogena and a few other acne brands have products on the 
market. 


Avoid Picking 
It goes without saying, but avoid any and all scratching, picking or prodding of 
breakouts on your back and bottom (and your face, too). Picking at acne can easily 
cause scarring and can introduce new bacteria to the area, making the whole 
situation even worse. 


Avoid Textured Fabric
Having lace or textured fabrics directly pressed up against the skin on your back and 
bottom can cause friction against the skin, and lead to irritation and acne breakouts. 
So think twice before you wear a thong, go commando, or wear rough fabrics up 
against your skin. Opt for soft, smooth cotton fabrics to provide a protective barrier 
between your skin and clothing. 


Avoid Certain Body Lotions 
If you’re prone to body acne, be mindful of the lotion you’re applying when you get 
out of the shower. For most people, you don’t even need to be applying lotion to 
your back or bottom. If you have dry or rough skin and do want to apply lotion to 
these areas, look for a non-comedogenic or water-based body lotion. 


Avoid Fabric Softener & Choose the Right Laundry Detergent

For many, fragrances and other chemicals can react with sensitive skin and cause 
breakouts. If you’ve recently started breaking out after trying a new detergent, it 
might be to blame. Opt for fragrance-free, unscented detergents and use dryer balls 
in lieu of fabric softener. This will help prevent a layer of chemicals from sticking to 
and irritating your skin throughout the day. 


Wash Your Sheets
Once you’ve got the right type of laundry detergent, wash your sheets with it at 
least once a week. Even when they look spotless, your sheets are actually harboring 
bacteria, skin cells and other germy microorganisms that are just waiting to stake 
claim on your skin while you’re sleeping. 


Eat Healthy
Don’t overlook the effect a healthy diet can have on your skin’s health. Eating certain 
foods can help clear up your skin and give it a healthier, prettier tone. Read here for 
what to eat to improve your skin


Reducing Acne Scars 
After getting a breakout under control, you’re often left with the unsightly telltale 
scars acne can leave behind. And back and bottom acne tend to scar worse than 
acne on other parts of your body.  

Acne can cause different types of scarring, which require different types of treatment. Read here for tips to help fade and smooth different types of acne scars

In addition to the treatment and prevention tips above, if your back or bottom 
acne is more severe, your dermatologist may recommend prescription oral and/
or topical medications or laser and cosmetic procedures that target the skin’s oil 
glands to reduce the acne.

THE TRUE SOLUTION TO MARRIAGE , CHEATING , DIVORCE , AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devestated to say the least. I met my husband 18yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was havingan affiar with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use DR BLESSING spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 24 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me...there IS light at the end of this tunnel.

SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE WITH GOOD RESULT TO TESTIFY ABOUT I am Monica David from Ontario Canada, i want to testify about the good service of Dr. Ugo Wonders living in USA for helping me bring back my fiancee who left me because of a prostitute. it was a terrible and depressing time when my fiancee whom we were supposed to be married in two months cancelled our wedding because of a prostitute who cast a spell on him and stole him away. i was searching for help online when i saw a review about Dr. Ugo of General Spell Temple, i then contacted him for help. I followed all his instruction accordingly as he assured and guaranteed me that my Fiancee will be back in 48 hours, to my greatest surprise in exactly two days after the spell was cast, my Fiance called me and started to apologize for leaving me because of another lady. i waited for two months in which we are now married before i could testify and right now, we are one happy family and its going to remain like this for ever.. all thanks to Dr. Ugo Wonders of General Spell Temple. you can contact Dr. Ugo for any relationship problem through his direct email generalspelltemple@gmail.com or call him directly on +1 386-336-9876 website:http://generalspelltempleblog.wordpress.com
