‘Bacne’ and Your Body: Everything You Need to Know
To spare you any technical and scientific terms, ‘bacne’ is basically acne but on your back and body. It is usually caused by excess oil and dead skin cells that build up over time. But your poor hygiene habits are not fully to blame as the humid and hot climate or hormonal changes can also attribute to your ‘bacne’ breakout.
So now you might be thinking, “ah I see…well I suppose I can just slap some of my facial cleanser on my back and poof bye-bye ‘bacne’ right?” Well you would most definitely be wrong in thinking so as there is a stark difference between face acne and back acne.
As the skin on the body is 3 to 4 times thicker than that of the face, your acne treatment for your body should be stronger than what you would use on your face. Therefore, you need a product that is specifically formulated to penetrate the thicker body skin to truly treat body acne.
So what would you need in order to rid yourself of this wretched ‘bacne’? Why dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross has the answer you seek! His Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment helps disintegrate excess melanin as well as preventing it from forming again. The treatment also dissolves the glue that holds the dead skin cells to the skin’s surface while also exfoliating the dead, dull skin to reveal the fresh, radiant skin cells underneath.
So the next time you feel a ‘bacne’ breakout occurring, remember that simple body soap or facial cleanser will NOT help rid you of it.
