b-AC(k)NE be gone!

 

 

 

Back acne, commonly referred to as "bacne", is one condition that gets people into the dermatology office, especially this time of year. The warmer it gets, the more skin we like to show. And everyone deserves to be confident both when facing others and when walking away. It's technically a sort of last impression. Who doesn't want to leave a good one?

 

There are a few treatment options for men and women that struggle with acne vulgaris involving the back. Treatment regimens will vary based on individual skin types. But, today's dermatology tips can be useful for anyone with "bacne."

 

Happy #DermTipTuesday!

 

1. Change out of workout clothes immediately

 

Leaving post work-out sweat and oils on the skin for prolonged periods of time may increase the risk of clogged pores and acne lesions.

 

2. Use a medicated cleanser

 

The cleanser should be one that is anti-inflammatory with the ability to kill the bacteria responsible for causing acne. Benzoyl peroxide is one example, and dermatology's tried and true.

 

3. Stick with it

 

Once the acne clears, don't stop the regimen you've started. It will prevent any future breakouts.

 

4. Don't be afraid to safely expose the skin outdoors

 

Ultraviolet (UV) therapy is one option for improving acne. Therefore natural sunlight can sometimes be just as effective, as long as the sun exposure is done so safely. No, this does not mean lay out and tan to accomplish this. UV can even penetrate a tank top. Be sure to also apply sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30, 20 minutes before direct sun exposure, and reapplying every 2 hours. The higher the SPF the better.

 

5. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

 

Last, but certainly not least. Water should be consumed regularly in order to help the skin purge.

If you find that your acne is resistant to over-the-counter treatment and/or causing scarring, seek immediate treatment from a board-certified dermatologist.
