Is your skin ready for warm weather and more revealing clothes? You might say no if you are experiencing body acne. Body acne is similar to facial acne in both its symptoms and its treatments. Acne forms when pores or hair follicles become clogged with dead skin and oil. Body acne is most commonly found on the back, chest, and neck, but blemishes can appear anywhere except the palms of your hands and soles of your feet. Body acne can be more challenging to control than facial acne because the skin on your body is thicker and has larger pores than facial skin, making it easier for pores to become clogged. Plus, these areas are often clothed, which means your skin has constant contact with the oil it produces.
One of the most common forms of body acne is “bacne” or back acne. What causes back acne? There is no scientific explanation for what causes back acne. Back acne tends to occur around puberty when the sebaceous glands, which produce sebum, start functioning. When too much sebum is produced, pores and hair follicles can become clogged, attracting bacteria. This can lead to acne.
Sometimes the hardest to reach areas of our body are the ones that need the most TLC. That’s why here at Lulur Spa, the facial day spa, we designed this 45 minute treatment especially for your back.
The Lulur Day Spa Back Facial begins with exfoliation to rejuvenate and clear impurities, helping you feel confident and ready to reveal your skin for the warmer, sunnier weather. During the treatment you will be under steam, as we cleanse and exfoliate layers of dead skin cells off your back. Extractions of whiteheads on back and a clarifying mask will conclude this treatment leaving your back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
