For all those days you wanted to wear a backless outfit and couldn’t get away with it, thanks to pesky little back acne, these tips have come as your saviour!

1. Bi-Weekly Scrub Down

No, no…you can’t get lazy about this one. It’s especially vital after a sweaty workout. Plus, a good scrub on your back will help you get rid of acne scars too.

Take your time with this and scrub in circular motions, clockwise and counter-clockwise. A good scrub will do the trick.

2. The 2-in-1 Cure

Whatever the cause of your dandruff may be, because it’s different for everyone, get rid of it! If it’s a recurring problem, you may want to check with a dermatologist or trichologist.

In some cases, it may just be switching your shampoo/conditioner for a more targeted solution. What works well for me is apple cider vinegar.

Mix 1 part water in 2 parts of apple cider vinegar and place it in your shower cabinet. Rinse your hair with it after you’re done conditioning. But don’t rinse this out with water.

This will be great for your dandruff and for your back acne, since it acts as a toner. You can even use a cotton bud to apply it directly onto your back.

3. Your Shower Routine

Speaking of dandruff related acne, just doing an an apple cider vinegar wash or using an anti-dandruff shampoo may not be enough. Try a conditioner that targets dandruff too, for that extra cleanse.

Not only that, but you might want to change up your shower routine too.

We’ve all done it to save time — you get in, haphazardly apply soap, then shampoo, or vice versa. You rinse off shampoo or conditioner right before you get out of the shower, right?

Na-ah, bad idea! The residue from your hair products may stay on your back and the towel isn’t rubbing it off. This, obviously, clogs your pores which turns into… you said it… bacne!

Instead, finish off your shampoo routine first, before cleansing off any residue on your face and body with body or face wash.
