Acne can appear all over the body. Bacne is a short term for back acne. Bacne is just like any ordinary form of acne. It can appear as pimples, blackheads, whiteheads or pustules.
Acne of any kind normally appears during puberty but can happen at any stage during the life cycle. Male, female, teenagers or adult, back acne does not have a particular range of age nor gender and practically can affect anybody. Below are some ways to treat bacne.

1.     Wear cool clothes and put some powder at your back to prevent perspiration. This is a vital way on how to cure back acne. Change clothes if you have perspired too much, to prevent further back acne build up.

2.     Take a shower immediately after vigorous activity. Physical activity causes us to sweat which if left on the skin can cause acne growth. If you are unable to take a shower immediately after exercise, wipe your perspiration using towels with soft fabric such as cotton.

3.     Pat dry you skin after taking a shower. Do not rub the towel. It might irritate your skin and cause inflammation on your back acne.

4.     Facial anti-bacterial cleansers can be used for non-severe back acne cases. Avoid using regular soap. Nowadays, there are also anti-acne soaps that can be used for the whole body.

     Avoid carrying backpacks until your back acne clears up. Heavy backpacks can cause irritation of the skin, which worsens acne. Backpacks can also cause the back to heat up which leads to more perspiration and causes a breeding ground for bacteria, which causes back acne.

6.     One of the best ways on how to cure back acne properly is to use gels or creams. Anti-bacteria creams should contain at least 10 percent benzoyl peroxide. These products can be bought at drugstores even without any prescriptions from a dermatologist.  Studies show that benzoyl peroxide works better when used with products having alpha-hydroxy. This will heal and dry up back acne two times faster.

7.     There are natural remedies to cure back acne as well. One technique used is Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) soap with tea tree oil added into it. The added oil not only will help clear up the skin but it will make it softer.

8.      Exfoliate your skin once a week.  Some body scrubs can be on the expensive side. If you prefer inexpensive exfoliates you may use sugar instead to take off dead skin cells. Rub exfoliates in the affected areas such as back and shoulders. 

9.      You may seek professional help in case of very severe back acne. Dermatologists help people suffering with this kind of skin problem. They will recommend medicines and antibiotics that should be taken orally, topically, retinol or even oral contraceptives.

These are some of the most effective ways to avoid or cure back acne. There is help out there no matter what treatment you decide to use.
