Many people have less than flawless skin on their back, and just because the problem isn’t instantly visible, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t as much of an annoyance as suffering from spots or blemishes on any other part of your body.
The problem with looking after the skin on your back is that it can be difficult to reach, and as we can’t immediately see our backs without the use of a mirror, it can be tricky to determine what condition it is actually in.
Like other parts of the body, spots and blemishes on the back can be caused by a variety of factors- including blocked pores, stress, diet and hormonal changes.
With the warmer spring and summer months just around the corner, many of us will be flashing a great deal of flesh on a regular basis- especially those lucky enough to be going on a foreign holiday. Thankfully, if you start to tackle the issue now, your back will be looking bikini worthy in plenty of time.
The most important part of your back clearing battle is to ensure that skin is squeaky clean. A great way of improving the look and condition of the skin is by alternating between Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub and Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash. The body scrub will help to gently buff away dead skin cells- which will help to keep pores clear, and the body wash is fantastic for ensuring a thorough cleanse without drying out the skin.
However tempting it may be, make sure that you leave any spots on your back well alone- as this could only make the problem worse!
Bare your back with pride this summer, and make annoying spots and blemishes a thing of the past.
