Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Back Acne

Acne is the most common skin condition that many of us have faced at least once in our life. But, it isn't limited to our face. Back acne is a real thing that is not only painful but rather inconvenient. Not only that, it might hinder your daily activities such as sleeping, exercising and the clothes that you wear.

What Causes Back Acne 

Acne is a chronic skin condition that is triggered mainly due to clogged pores, excess oil produced on the skin and bacterial infestation of hair follicles. Not only that, environmental factors like dirt and pollution and lifestyle factors like stress and unhealthy diet also contribute to it.

Our back area has a number of sebaceous glands that can produce excess oil and lead to acne. Not only that, dead skin cells, clogged pores and lack of hygiene leading to bacterial infestation also give way to back acne. Hence, it becomes important to deal with this issue.
