The Dreaded "Bacne!" Breakouts on an athletes body can keep even the best physique from feeling completely confident on the stage, at the beach or at the gym.
Back acne,"bacne," is fairly common. Back and body acne affects males and females, teens and adults. However, body acne is more common, and often more severe, in males, especially athletes. Besides the face, acne commonly occurs on the back, chest, neck, shoulders, and upper arms.
Body acne is caused by the same factors that trigger facial acne: overactive oil glands, excess dead skin cells, and a proliferation of acne-causing bacteria. Oil and dead skin cells become trapped within the follicle, or pore, and create a blockage. This blockage becomes a blackhead and may progress to a pimple if bacteria invade.
Body acne is generally confined to the back and upper torso. Like the face, these areas have more sebaceous glands per square inch than other areas of the body, so the follicles are more likely to become plugged with excess sebum and dead skin cells.
Our back is often times one of the most neglected parts of our body. A trained Esthetician can help you with clearing up your back acne, assist in extracting infected glands and pores as well as provide recommendations to avoid further breakouts.
A bodyhaul cleansing back treatment includes an exfoliation, steam, extractions, a moisturizing skin mask and provided essential oils for your own aftercare.
