How Back Acne Is Formed – And How To Get Rid Of It Fast
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Its quite difficult to treat back acne as it is, but even harder when you don't know how its formed. Through my years of trial and error, I've discovered a lot about acne. I would like to share with you how back acne is formed, and how to get rid of it fast.

In your early teens, you go through this annoying thing called puberty. Where (among other changes) your body starts to produce more hormones, which triggers your oil glands to produce more natural oil for the skin. This oil makes its way to your skin through the pores, and mixes with the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. When this mix dries, it creates a plug over your pores. The oil has no way to escape your body, so it balloons up inside of your pore creating your pimple.

That's the main gist of why you get back acne. And the only real way you can treat it, is by focusing on the main cause of the problem, the hormones, and the problem on the skin, the oil and dead skin cells.

There are 3 things you can do right now to start seeing improvements in your bacne:

The first is to use Witch Hazel on the areas affected by acne. This household product is good for cleansing away the dead skin cells and the oil on your skin. Because it does both of these things, it helps stop future breakouts in their tracks.

The best time to use witch hazel is when your taking a shower. I use a soft loofah (or a shower scrub) to spread the cleanser over my back. If you can reach the areas without using anything but your hands, that would be better as your hand is a lot gentler than a scrub on your skin. After you've covered all the areas with acne, let this sit for around 3 to 5 minutes so that it may do its work, then rinse off.

The second thing you will need to do is to use Baking Soda. I fell in love with this kitchen product the first time I started using it on my skin. Its a pretty powerful natural acne cleanser that goes deep within the pimple and fights the bacteria that causes the pimple to have the reddish color that it does, helping your body get rid of it faster. After using it, the skin is left feeling smooth and soft.

Like the witch hazel, this cleanser should be used while in the shower right after rinsing off the witch hazel. Using your hand or soft shower scrubber, cover the acne affected areas. Let this sit for about 3 to 5 minutes, then rinse off. I've found that this is one of the better things that you can apply to the skin that will get rid of back acne that you already have in a hurry.

This should be done twice every day, once in the morning and again in the evening. Keep in mind that baking soda is a very powerful acne cleanser that might dry out your skin. If you find that your skin is starting to feel tight, and starts drying, try using the baking soda once a day until your skin gets use to it.

The third and last step, is to workout often. If your body is creating pimples its because there is a problem within, not just on the skin. Exercising will help release a lot of the built up hormones in your body that are causing you to breakout. Aerobic type of exercise is the best for doing this. I've noticed that the times I cleared up the fastest was when I was doing work that caused me to sweat the most.

This doesn't have to be a chore for you as you can pickup something that you enjoy. Basketball with friends, biking, anything that will keep you enjoying yourself and will make you work hard. Using the exercise method, its a lot easier and painless to get rid of back acne when your doing something that you can actually enjoy doing. I found playing a specific sport or picking up a hobby that you enjoy worked best for me.
