We all obsess about spots on the face but Back Acne, or ‘bacne’, as it’s often (unpleasantly!) referred to, is an equally upsetting skin plight that many battle with.
What causes back acne?
Identifying the causes of back acne is the first step to eliminating them. As with facial acne, back spots occur when pores or hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and excess sebum.
The causes are much the same as face spots, but body acne can be harder to treat than facial acne. This is because the skin on your back is thicker, has larger pores and is in constant contact with clothing. This can suffocate the skin and spread bacteria.
