3 Sure Fire Treatments For Back Acne
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Like you, I've tried a lot of different treatments for back acne. I some showed signs of success, and with others, nada. No matter how successful some treatments were in the beginning, it didn't last.

Through trial and error I've found three different treatments, that when combined, have given me a clear back and left my skin glowing. These have worked for friends that I've recommended these methods to, and I hope you see the same results.

The first is called Salicylic Acid. Its an active ingredient that a lot of store bought treatments have, in fact, many of the popular treatments have it too. This remedy cleans away the surface of the skin of any dead skin cells that might have dried and clogged up the pores on the skin, helping prevent future breakouts.

The second is an active ingredient called Benzoyl Peroxide. This certain active ingredient is also in many popular acne treatments and can be pretty effective on its own. Its main purpose is to go deep down into pores, and kill the bacteria, drying up the pimple. I've noticed that this also helps in stopping future pimples from showing up, but I've found that it isn't as effective in preventing future breakouts as the salicylic acid.

The third is actually something you can find in your kitchen... Lemon Juice. I don't know how people originally came up with this one, but I'm glad they did. Lemon juice helps reduce the redness that make pimples so nasty to look at (its also what makes them so big), helps recede scarring that is caused by acne, and shrinks the pores helping stop more pimples from occurring.

If there is any downside of using lemon juice as one of my treatments for back acne, I think it would be that it can itch and sometimes it burns at first. But its something that goes away pretty quickly, and the results are worth it. Just a side note though, be wary of cuts that you may have. Lemon and cuts are no fun.

How I Use These Treatments:

When I'm taking a shower, I first apply the salicylic acid to my back using a gentle scrubber (you can use your hand if you can reach the areas) and a rub in a circular motion. I let the cleanser sit for a couple minutes so that it has time to do its work on my skin. Then rinse.

Next, I do the same exact thing for the benzoyl peroxide. Make sure that you don't let this cleanser sit for more than 5 minutes as it can dry out your skin. After I've let this sit, I rinse off and prepare the lemon juice.

I like to use fresh squeezed lemon juice to apply to the skin as I think it has the best effect. I definitely wouldn't go to the store and buy lemon juice that I would drink as it has added sugars, and would probably do me more harm than good.

You would apply the lemon juice the same way as the other two treatments for back acne. Let the juice do its work for a few minutes, then rinse off.
