To clear back acne, start with taking a salt water bath and using an acne-fighting soap to wash your back. Follow the bath with an oatmeal mask, and then apply a spot treatment to the blemishes. It can take a few weeks for the acne to clear completely.Continue Reading
Run a warm bath. Pour 2 to 3 cups of either sea salt or Epsom salt into the water. Allow it to dissolve completely.
Sit in the bathtub with your back submerged in the water for approximately 30 minutes.
Drain the tub. Wash off the salt with a soap that contains salicylic acid, concentrating on the area of acne breakouts.
Follow the shower with an oatmeal mask. Cook the oatmeal in water until it is soft. Add 3 tablespoons of honey to the oatmeal, and allow the mask to cool.
After showering, slather the area of back acne with a generous portion of the oatmeal mask. Allow the mask to sit for 20 minutes. Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water.
After rinsing away the mask, apply an over-the-counter spot treatment to each blemish. Look for spot treatments that contain salicylic acid over benzoyl peroxide, as peroxide can bleach your clothes.
