What Is Back Acne?

Back Acne, notoriously referred to as Bacne are normal acne that simply occur on the back. It is the primary result of an accumulation of dead skin cells and sebum that gets locked within the pores in the skin. Combined with an overgrowth of a common skin bacteria, Cutibacterium acnes, bacne occurs as an inflammatory response.

Back acne can occur due to several reasons ranging from hormonal imbalances, accumulation of dirt in the skin pores, sensitivity to even common skincare products, bleaching, hair removal or hair product residue seeping into the skin, or even over sebum production. Whatever be the reason, back acne can get quite uncomfortable for those suffering from it. The friction caused by wearing the clothes can sometimes make you feel even more uneasy, specifically in the summers and more humid climatic conditions.
