How to Get Rid of Bacne Fast: 11 Steps to Clearing Back Acne For Good

Bacne is annoying at best, but everyone's had it at some point or other, so you're not alone


Bye-bye bacne.


Bacne is annoying at best, but everyone's had it at some point or other, so you're not alone! Bring on the tank tops and backless dress, though, because we're ready to fight back! We talked to top dermatologists and skin care experts to find out how to get rid of bacne once and for all. Read on for 11 tips for treating bacne (and body acne in general)!

1. Exfoliate Regularly

"Like the face, one’s upper torso and back have more sebaceous (oil producing) glands than any other area of the body, which means it produces more of the skin’s natural oil, increasing the likelihood of developing body acne in these areas. Exfoliating on a regular basis is also important since the skin cells on the back may not slough off as efficiently as needed and that pile up can aggravate acne," says Dr. Doris Day, MD, New York City dermatologist and Olay Professional Alliance member. Try Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub.

2. Wear Clothing that Breathes

"Any skin irritation (like sweat) can exacerbate outbreaks. It’s important to stay away from tight clothing to minimize friction, especially when perspiring. Certain materials, like those that absorb sweat from the skin, will also reduce irritation. Lighter colors and cotton are ideal, especially during workouts," says Dr. Day.

3. Spot Treat Bacne

Just like you can spot treat acne on your face, you can spot treat bacne, too. Sulfur masks, it turns out, are an excellent form of bacne treatment. Try Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Acne Masque.

4. Use an Acne Spray to Hit Weird Angles on Your Back

Getting acne medication on your back can be tricky, but this simple spray can propel its treatment from any angle. Try Murad Clarifying Body Spray.

5. Try Cleansing Pads

Even when you think you’ve gotten your body squeaky clean, one swipe of these cleansing pads can reveal trapped dirt and oil. The discs are saturated with salicylic acid, so they fight breakouts while cleansing. Get a pal to help you rub them on your back! Try Oxy Daily Defense Cleansing Pads.

6. Shower Right After Working Out

One of the reasons that bacne happens is because we're busy being so awesome and healthy working up a sweat! "Breakouts on the back and body can be exacerbated by working out or sweating more," explains skin expert Renée Rouleau. Whenever possible, shower right after exercising to help remove sweat that may be irritating the skin and causing clogged pores on your back.

7. Use Specially Formulated Cleansers

Take advantage of cleansers made specifically to fight bacne, like the Proactiv Medicated Cleansing Bar. This is definitely not your average bar of soap. While lathering up, it deposits salicylic acid to wherever you need it most, leaving you feeling ultra-clean and fighting acne all over your body.

If body washes are more your style, try Murad’s Acne Body Wash. The trifecta of salicylic acid, green tea, and licorice root extract reduces redness, soothes inflammation, and unclogs pores.

8. Use a Cleansing Brush

Scrubbing your back seems basically impossible, until you try Clarisonic’s body brush — it deep cleans even tough skin around your upper shoulders. The extending handle allows you to easily get to hard-to-reach areas. Try the Clarisonic Plus Sonic Skin Cleansing System.

9. Don't Let Conditioner Sit on Your Back

Sometimes how we wash our hair is is to blame for bacne. When conditioner-coated hair sit directly on our backs, it seeps into the skin — and that can actually be the cause of back and body acne. So, the answer to how to get rid of bacne might be as simple as clipping your hair up if you're going to let it sit in your hair for a bit. It's also important to keep it off your back after the shower, too. Even though you've rinsed, the freshly conditioned hair can irritate sensitive acne-prone skin.

10. Don't Pick

As with regular acne, avoid picking any bacne or body acne. Just like it can on your face, picking on your body can spread bacteria and cause more pimples, as well as lead to scarring (and no one wants to deal with that).

11. Wash Your Sheets and Workout Gear Regularly

Sheets and recycled workout gear can be a breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria. Make sure to wash your sheets frequently and avoid the temptation to re-wear your sports bra or tank for more than one sweat sesh.
