How To Get Rid Of Back Acne In A Week Or So?

2 posts in this topic

On July 3rd I'm going to the river with my friends for a few days. I have back acne though and if I cant get rid of it in a week and a half I'll be too embarrassed to go. Any home remedies or products that have worked for you? I've tried Pro-activ and birth control (I heard that helped) but nothing really worked. HELP

Do you have a local Trader Joe's? Their Tea Tree Tingle body wash completely healed my body acne - its main ingredient is tea tree oil, a known effective acne treatment. So try to incorporate that if you can.

Since you're pressed for time, here's my version of a natural, homemade treatment that I believe is the ultimate acne-fighting mask:

  • witch hazel (or water if you don't have it)
  • raw organic honey
  • cinnamon
  • turmeric powder (about 1/2 tsp.)
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice

Mix in a small bowl, apply, leave for 30 minutes, and rinse off.

If you happen to have any of the following ingredients, they are great to add too:

  • neem leaf powder
  • nettle leaf powder
  • sea buckthorn fruit powder
  • niacinamide powder
  • burdock root powder
  • sulfur powder and/or MSM powder
