Sea Salt is one of the best home remedies for back acne. While a diet high in sodium (or salt) can aggravate your pimples or acne, you may think that a remedy with sea salt would really help? Even though not much study has been done as to why this ingredient is so useful in removing acne and scars, however, the fact is that when applied externally, it truly works. Experts claim the reason to be its bacterial buildup. Sea salt dries your skin effectively, taking away excess oil, which cause back acne. And whoever has tried this remedy for their back acne (bacne) have often praised for quick results. But make sure to use sea salt & not table salt since it has higher iodine levels, which might proliferate the acne further.

  • Soak yourself in the tub for at least 20 to 30 minutes
  • Pat dry yourself after getting out and don’t apply anything if you have oily skin
  • On the other hand, if you feel your skin is getting drier, use a mild moisturizer
  • Repeat this process 2 times a day if you have severe back acne or consult a doctor
  • If this remedy works well, you should see your back acne as well as the scars disappearing within few weeks
