How to Get Rid of Bacne

Skin Tricks: A Smart Way to Treat Bacne

We're happy to present this article from one of our favorite sites, Allure!

During a recent facial at Adam R. Kolker's office in New York City, I got a really great facial — and a bunch of skin care tips, including one about how to treat bacne. Half of the problem for skin in that area is that it's just plain hard to reach to apply any creams. But Mattioli's tricks were both clever and practical, so I thought I'd share!

  • Start off by putting benzoyl peroxide on a plastic spatula and applying it to the hard to reach areas of the back. Peroxide kills the bacteria that causes bacne in the first place.
  • Once your back is dry, put an acne-fighting toner into a spray bottle and spritz it on. The toner will keep out any further bacteria that may arise from sweat.

Amanda, try this: But do the braid really loose and just on one side. Hope that helps!

It may sound really crazy but I have been using hydrogen peroxide on acne that about 3-4 other drs put me on meds for (which never worked)! Just be careful in how often you use it (I started at twice a day, now I only do it once). I also do an aspirin and aloe vera gel concoction every other day. Worth a shot.
