Although working out is great for improving general health and well-being, it can be rough on the skin. Bacne—acne of the back—affects many gym-goers. Reduce your susceptibility to bacne with the following tips.
♦ Combat bacne by wearing looser clothes during workouts.
♦ Avoid wearing spandex and nylon while working out, as the fabrics lay directly on the skin and prevent air circulation.
♦ Eliminate bacteria from the back by removing clothes and showering immediately after working out.
♦ When showering, wash back with benzoyl peroxide.
Don't let bacne flare-ups keep you from the gym anymore. Clear up the breakouts and head to the gym with clear skin and confidence!
