Back acne is most commonly caused by two factors: a liver problem or a fatty skin. Stress, cosmetics or hormonal imbalance also aggravate the back acne problem.
If back acne disturbs you, we recommend going to your dermatologist to remove any suspicion of serious illness. However, if it is not a medical cause, do not hesitate to try these natural remedies listed below.
Get rid of back acne with clay
Clay, famous for its astringent, antiseptic and revitalizing properties, absorbs sebum quickly, reduces large pores and dries the acne.
Mix two tablespoons of white clay with lemon juice and honey. Apply this paste to your problem area every evening and do not wash it for at least half an hour. Take a shower and use only mild antibacterial soap for washing your back. Wipe off gently with a cotton towel and once the skin has dried, dab it with rose water, which is also a good astringent.
Get rid of back acne with essential oil
Certain essential oils contain highly effective active compounds in removing acne. Almond oil, lemon oil, tea tree oil – all have antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Dab you back acne every morning for at least a week with one of these essential oils. Apply the oil, wait a little to dry and let it work overnight.
