Oil Free Body Wash

Thursday, March 10th 2011. | Cosmetics

Raring to wear tube top on a hot day or night out, but one glance at your full-length mirror stops you in your tracks. You realize: You can’t. What is the reason? You have back acne! You know – those unsightly, uncomfortable, unflattering and rashes on the back (and even in the buttocks), that seemed to have magically sprouted out of nowhere.

Face Acne vs. Back Acne

The cause of back acne is simple: When the sebaceous glands produce excess oil, they clog the pores, which attracts bacteria. But unlike facial acne, back acne is not hereditary and not caused by a genetic predisposition. So if your parents never suffered from back acne, this does not mean that you do.

Unluckily, back acne is also a kind of persistent acne. This is because the skin of the back is thicker than facial skin (the skin and other body parts) – so it is more resistant to treatment.

Treat Back Acne With:

A Back Facial – A specialized back facial (done at a spa or at your derma) can clear up those zits. Just follow with home treatment. Wash your back with salicylic acid soap, which contains beta-hydroxy and other ingredients which exfoliate the skin.

Nonprescription drugs – Go to your nearest pharmacy and get a cleanser that contains salicylic or glycolic acid or benzoyl peroxide (not suitable for thinner skin).

An appointment with the Derma – If back acne is taking a turn for the worse or if pus begins to form, consult a dermatologist immediately. He/ she can prescribe you the right treatment and medicine, tailored to what your skin needs.

Keep your Back clear with these tips:

Don’t often wear tight clothes. Give those skintight tees a rest. Too snug getups constrict skin, trap perspiration against your skin, and do not allow it to breathe. Opt for looser garments, as well as tops made from cotton.

You should change your bed sheets regularly. Your bed sheets should be changed once in a week, especially if the weather condition is hot and humid. Beside from taking all the dust that’s harmful to your skin, it’s the accumulated body oil that can clog up your pores.

Shower immediately. Especially on hot days, after workouts, or after any sweaty activity. You won’t just feel fresh – but you’ll keep your back clean and oil-free too. When showering, avoid rich, fragrant soaps; use an oil free body wash such as Neutrogena.

A Few of the most effective identified natural oils are:

1) Maracuja Oil – This is oil derived from the Passion fruit seen in Brazil. It is a soothing emollient and is rich in linolenic acid. Linolenic acid performs a primary role in supporting and revitalization of your skin health and vitality.

2) Babassu Oil – It is uncommon oil derived from the babassu fruit in the Amazon in Brazil. Babassu oil is well-known for its medicative attributes in skin tightening up and transformation. It is appropriate for all skin types – whether dry, oily or combination type.
