Even those of us with the most rigorous skin care routine for our faces often neglect our backs. This is, in part, because we have trouble reaching this particular region and, in part, because it is often out of sight and out of mind. However, your back is a large area of your body that is often exposed in dresses or swimsuits and it needs to be treated with the same care as your face. Luckily, it is very simple to take steps for a clear, healthy back.
Get a “Facial” for the Skin on Your Back
Because of its name, we often think of a facial as something that we can only get on our faces. However, a facial is a treatment that can benefit the skin all over the body. An esthetician can used specialized products and techniques to exfoliate, moisturize, and hydrate the hardest to reach region of your body. They will unclog the pores that lead to the dreaded “backne,” leaving your back smooth and beautiful. Taking the time to have this procedure done a few times a year can make a huge difference in the appearance and feeling of your back.
Drink Plenty of Water
One of the easiest ways to hydrate skin you cannot always reach is to make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This will not only help with hydration, but it will also help rid your body of toxins leading to acne and other blemishes all over your body. As a general rule, it is recommended to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. If you prefer drinks like juice or soda, try adding fruit or cucumber to your water for extra flavor. As a result, you will better hydrate your body throughout the day and enjoy the benefits of the fruits and vegetables that you add to your water.
Do Not Skip the Sunscreen
It can be tempting to skip a reapplication of sunscreen on your back or to skip it all together because it is difficult to reach. However, if you are going to be out in the sun throughout the day, you are doing extreme damage by not including your back in your routine. Your back will be one of the first places to burn, which results in peeling, dry and inflamed skin.
