Your Guide to Treating Bacne

Have you ever experienced being followed by that one annoying friend who seems to “accidentally” bump into you everywhere you go? I am sure that this has happened to you at least once in your life. In skincare terms, acne is that same annoying friend that finds you no matter where you go and what you do. We like to believe that it is alright for as long as it occasionally occurs on the face, but it can go places, and we mean it!


Acne can affect any part of your body that has oil-secreting glands or hair follicles, including your back, chest, and shoulders. Back acne is the result of an accumulation of dead skin cells and sebum within the pores in the skin, combined with an overgrowth of a common skin bacteria, Cutibacterium Acnes, which triggers an inflammatory response. Sebaceous glands monitor oil production in your skin, exist all over your body, and can get blocked no matter where they are. Oil glands continue to produce oil, but when it backs up, your body sees this as foreign material and creates inflammation,


Using a clear set of body care products that are non-irritating and toxin-free, but inculcating a few habits that will go a long way in treating acne is as important. Few tips that can help you treat bacne are:

  • Regularly washing bed linens, towels, and pillowcases
  • Avoiding wearing things that rub against the back, such as backpacks
  • Exercising in loose-fitting clothes made from natural fibers, such as cotton
  • Showering and changing clothes immediately after exercise or using cleansing wipes
  • Washing workout clothes and equipment after each use
  • Using oil-free skin care products and cosmetics.

Having said that, we have curated a list of products that will help you treat bacne and give your skin a soft, plum radiance that you and your back will fall in love with.
