If you're struggling with back acne, you will be pleased to know that there is an easy way to help clear that irritated skin. And, the best part is, that  it takes two minutes or less, promise. Sometimes called bacne (sorry) these irritating spots more often than not, appear on peoples back, they can be painful and annoy you. The solution is relatively simple and if you give it some time it should help. It is important to say, like any skin treatment we recommend using it for minimum of one month, as that I the average it takes for skin to renew itself.

Choose your favourite AHA or BHA toner (scroll down for our favourites). Dispense it into a spray mist bottle and spritz it onto your back or anywhere else you are suffering. If you are using any anti acne body wash, we'd recommend to avoid using it on the days you intend to use the spray on toner. Using them together may irritate the skin. After the shower, spray your back with the mister, it make the application much easier and much more lightweight that slathering it on by hand.

Treatment for body acne is similar to treatment for facial acne, but the skin on the body tends to be tougher than the skin on the face, so it often can tolerate stronger treatments. That said, if you are sensitive try a little first before you put a huge amount on, just to be safe. 

After you spray your back, air dry fro a few minutes and you can (if you like), apply anti-inflammatory, hydrating ingredients after you spray like aloe vera to avoid irritation and scarring. This spritzer bottle is great for a fine mist on the body.

Here are some amazing AHA & BHA Toners that you can use on your face and decant into the spritzer bottle to spray onto your back.
