How to Get Rid of Back Acne Naturally

How to Get Rid of Back Acne Naturally
Clear skin can be achieved naturally with a little effort.

Having acne is bad enough, but acne in hard to reach places such as your back can be frustrating. When your body produces too much sebum, it can create problems by blocking pores and creating pimples. This irritating skin condition can be both painful and embarrassing, but with a little prior knowledge on how to eliminate it, you can be free of back acne in minimal time in a natural fashion.

Step 1

Shower daily and wash your back with a mild soap. Avoid excessive scrubbing; this may cause pimples to break, leaving scars. Make sure to rinse your back well with warm water. Dry your back carefully when you get out of the shower so as not to aggravate the skin.

Step 2

Mix raw oatmeal with water into a thick paste. Apply the paste to your back and leave it in place for 15 to 20 minutes before gently rinsing it away. Apply this paste to your skin twice a week to see improvement in your acne.

Step 3

Wear loose fitting shirts to prevent excessive rubbing and irritation on the skin. For women, go without a bra when you are at home to allow the skin to breathe. Wear clean clothing after you shower each time to prevent transferring oils back onto your skin.

Step 4

Drink at six to eight glasses of water daily to help your system flush away any toxins, which can aggravate acne.

Step 5

Consume more omega-3 fatty acids, commonly found in fish such as salmon, to help reduce swelling. Add more seafood, lean meats and leafy green veggies to your diet and eliminate excessive sugars, caffeine and processed starches. Keep your skin more healthy overall by avoiding greasy foods and excessive sugars to help clear up and prevent acne.
