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.
