Let’s Talk About Bacne

I apologise if things are getting a little TMI in these parts today, but we shouldn’t be ashamed of talking about our supposedly embarrassing issues. Bacne (or back-acne, body acne etc.) is an issue that I’ve dealt with on and off for quite some time now, but I’m happy to tell you that I have found my solution, and hopefully this can work for all my fellow sufferers out there…

I’ve been much more into working out recently, and working out equals getting very sweaty whilst wearing a sports bra. I was breaking out in the whole area where the bra had been touching and rubbing against my skin, and I knew I had to bring out my tried and tested shower gel. Introducing The Body Shop Tea Tree Body Wash. This stuff works wonders for me. I will use this on any areas I’m breaking out on my body and it tends to clear up in about a week. If you’re unfathomably flexible, then you may be able to reach all areas of your back with just your hand, but I find using some sort of bath lily or loofah really helps. It’s almost important to me that I don’t stay in my sweaty gym clothes for too long after a workout – this seems to really aggravate my skin. 

Do let me know if you have any other tips for treating and getting rid of one of the most irritating skin issues, as I’d love to try some other products. Also, if you’re going to give this one a go, make sure you get it when The Body Shop are having an offer (when are they not?) – I got mine for £3.60!
