We can't wait for the summer and all the dozen summer dresses! But the summer heat means more back acne, especially if you have some seriously active sweat glands. So if you get too conscious of wearing that new floral dress or the cute cut-out bikini because of the dreaded 'bacne' then try these 5 super-easy home remedies.
You literally just need about 2 cups of sea salt and some lukewarm water for this one. It's the easiest and one of the most effective ways to treat bacne. Just add some sea salt in your bath tub and mix it in with the water. And all you have to do after that is lie in the relaxing water for 20-30 minutes. You get a home spa day and an acne free back. As sea salt is amazing for drying out your body, it'll help get rid of the excess oil and toxins.
Honey and Oatmeal Mask
Put about 3 tablespoons of oatmeal to cook as you normally do, and while it's cooking add 3 tablespoons of honey to it. Once it cools down, apply the mask to your acne zones and let it try for 20 minutes. Oatmeal is an antioxidant and makes an amazing cleanser for your body. It's also good for acne anywhere on your body, not just your back.
Baking Soda Paste
Mix one tablespoon of baking soda with a little bit of water until it turns into a paste. Leave it on for about 15 minutes before you wash it off. Baking soda is known to be a natural cure for acne and pimples but too much of it can cause irritation, so don't go overboard with this one.
Tea Tree Oil
Mix just a tiny bit of water with some tea tree oil and using a cotton swab, dab it on to your acne spots. Do it a couple of times a day, daily. It acts as a germ-free solution and clogs the pores.
Mint Leaves Paste
Crush a handful of mint leaves and extract all the liquid from it. Then, mix it in with some water to make a paste-like-consistency. Apply it on your acne and leave it for 15 minutes before washing it off. You can even apply this up to three times a day for quick results. Mint is a helpful ingredient in evening out and soothing your skin.
