Best Acne Cream for Back Acne

Back acne is no fun, I can tell you from experience. Bad back acne is not only embarrassing but it can also scar. Nothing is worse than taking your shirt off at the pool or beach only to have to worry about how your back looks. Trust me, no one like sthe way back acne looks, so anything you can do to get rid of it will instantly improve the level of attraction you get from the opposite sex (or same sex, if that is your orientation).


However, getting rid of this type of acne can also be difficult. Fortunately for you, I managed to completely get rid of my back acne through simple over the counter methods. I am going to share these with you directly below so you can follow the exact steps outlined to get rid of back acne.

The Best Back Acne Treatment Cream

The best acne treatment cream should contain benzoyl peroxide. I am partial to the Exposed Skin Care line, but you can get the results you need from any benzoyl peroxide cream. How you use the cream should depend on its concentration.

If the cream is under 5% concentration, rub it in on your trouble spots and common breakout areas and allow it to dry. Allow it to completely dry and then put your clothes back on. Do not put clothes on until the cream has completely dried.

If the cream is over 5% concentration, rub it in and allow it to sit for a few minutes, then wash it off under the shower. You do not want to leave this high concentration product in overnight as it may irritate the skin and cause redness.

Using a Lotion Applicator

In order to get the benzoyl peroxide cream to your back, you will need a good lotion applicator. This is basically a pad on a stick or a band that you can use to spread creams over your back. You want to find the most non-abrasive lotion applicator possible, as scratching the skin on your back may just make acne worse. The skin is more sensitive and suspect to scratching when you are using the cream because it dries the skin out.

Scratching the skin can cause redness, pain, and create inflammation. Since inflamed skin is easier for the pores to get blocked, this is something you want to avoid. The last thing you want to do is trigger acne by scratching your skin when you were trying to use the given treatment to stop it.
