Men: How to Tackle Back and Body Acne

Posted in Acne Tips by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
Being a guy and taking care of your skin don't need to be mutually exclusive. It may sound like a distinctly female trait to pamper and care for your skin, but more and more men are getting in on the beauty game and with good reason when it comes to back and body acne. Just a little bit of maintenance goes a long way in terms of acne care. The key is knowing what to do and how to do it.
Fighting Back and Body Acne at the Gym If working out is part of your daily routine, then chances are you're no stranger to pimples on your chest and back area. Always embarrassing and often painful, these inflamed cysts on your back and body can be treated and avoided if you cleanser thoroughly after your workout. We don't mean when you get home, we mean at the gym. Toss a body cleanser with 10% benzoyl peroxide in your gym bag and wash your entire back and chest with it. If you need to bring a brush with you to reach those hard-to-get-to places on your back, then do it. Make sure you dry off with a clean towel, not a dirty one that's been sitting in your duffel for a week. The acne bacteria likes to linger on fabrics and towels are their ideal breeding grounds. After you've toweled off, swipe your back and chest with a medicated treatment pad containing salicylic and glycolic acid to help say so long to dead skin cells, deep clean the pores and give your skin a nice, clean and glowing finish.
Book an Appointment For a Back Acne Treatment In-office acne treatments are not just for the face. In fact, many of them work just as well at ridding of body and back acne (aka bacne) as they do as treating pimples on the face. The best in-office procedures for back and body acne are the Isolaz laser, which uses a combination of vacuum like suction to clean the pores and blue light to kill the P. acnes bacteria. Another way to tackle stubborn back and body pimples are with medical extractions, which are not your typical spa extractions. At the hands of a medical professional, your skin is cleansed, steamed and then the extractions begin--all done with medical-grade tools and products. During swimsuit season, if you have an angry red pimple that's starting to form on your back or chest, book an appointment asap for a cortisone injection and said zit will never fully come to the surface.
