Say goodbye to bacne: An effective, simple solution to getting rid of spots on your back

Dealing with spots on your back and shoulders—commonly known as 'bacne'—can be frustrating. Many of us struggle with this issue, often not realizing that our hair care routine might be contributing to the problem. I’ve recently come across a wonderful tip that has significantly helped me, and I'm excited to share it with you!

The Problem with Regular Hair Washing When you wash your hair in the shower, the products used in your hair—especially conditioners—can rinse down your back and shoulders. These products often contain oils and ingredients that, while nourishing for your hair, can clog the pores on your skin if left behind. Combined with the warm environment of the shower, it creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, leading to those pesky breakouts.

The Simple Switch To combat this, I tried a new approach: washing my hair over the bath before taking a shower. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it effectively:

1) Prep your hair: Start by brushing your hair to remove any tangles and debris. This minimises the amount of dirt and product that can wash out onto your skin.

2) Wash over the bath: Lean over your bath to shampoo and condition your hair. This way, any product and residue will go directly into the bath rather than down your back.

3) Clip and shower: After washing, clip your hair up to keep it off your back and shoulders. This prevents any remaining residue from touching your skin while you shower.

4) Cleanse your Back: Lastly, step into the shower and use a body wash with antibacterial ingredients, such as tea tree oil, focusing particularly on your back and shoulders. This helps remove any residue and keeps your skin clear and fresh.

Alternative Method If you don’t have a bath or find it difficult to bend, you can still protect your back by modifying your shower routine:

  • Wash your hair as you normally would.

  • After rinsing your hair, clip it up away from your back.

  • Use a good antibacterial body wash to thoroughly clean your back, ensuring that all residue from your hair products is washed away.

Conclusion Since incorporating this simple change into my routine, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my skin’s clarity on my back and shoulders. It’s an easy and practical solution that might work wonders for you too!
