Follow This Easy Tip to Beat Backne

At the risk of heading into TMI territory, I've been breaking out on the backs of my shoulders lately. Nothing crazy, but enough to notice when I wear a sundress. At first, I couldn't figure out what was behind this bout of backne — after all, I wasn't breaking out elsewhere, and if anything, my skin has been dry rather than oily.

Ah, but then I spotted the culprit: a new conditioner. While it was doing wonders for my hair, it wound up leaving a film on my shoulders after rinsing. Rather than give up my conditioner, I just switched the order in which I clean myself. It used to be "scrub body first, then deal with hair," but now it's the opposite. The result: no more back bumps.
