There are a lot of ways to treat acne on your face. They can be caused by hormonal changes, stress, diets, and other factors. There are also quite a few ways to treat facial acne, but back acne (bacne) can be a little more complicated to treat. The skin on your upper torso is different than the skin that’s on your face and neck. Premier Dermatology has many products and services that can help with acne. Here are a few methods and ideas you can try yourself before your appointment with us!
Oily skincare products can just add more oils to your skin, clogging up your pores. Sunscreen especially can contain oils and cause issues with your skin. When you choose your sunscreen, find one that says, “non-comedogenic,” and skincare products with little to no oils in the ingredients list. Premier Dermatology has a wide variety of dermatologist-approved skincare products that you can purchase.
Dirt, bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells can end up in your clothes and sheets. It’s important to keep these clean to avoid any unnecessary breakouts. It can also keep things fresh and smelling nice. We recommend using an anti-bacterial detergent on your clothes and sheets once a week to get rid of that acne-causing bacteria.
Working out can cause a build-up of sweat and oil in the pores. Taking a shower and washing your chest, back, and face can help prevent breakouts before they happen. You should never re-wear workout gear without cleaning it in-between wears.
There are cleansers that are specially formulated to fight against acne. Using products with ingredients including salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients are extremely helpful when fighting bacne and will help keep your skin clear. Some of the products that are sold at Premier Dermatology have acne-fighting ingredients that will keep your skin feeling smooth and radient-looking.
Your back and chest are hot-spots for oil-producing glands. It’s important to clear out this oil every once in a while. Exfoliating is a great way to clean and remove any dead skin that could be clogging up your pores. However, make sure that the exfoliant you’re using isn’t too harsh on your skin. Some exfoliants can cause micro-abrasions that can make your acne worse. Talk to your local dermatologist about exfoliants that would be good for your skin type.
