Rubbing Alcohol

Will putting rubbing alcohol on my back keep bacne away?

No, unfortunately. You'll just irritate the skin, make it dry, red, and prone to rashes plus more bacne.

It's best to use gentle cleansers and warm water while showering/washing the face as HOT water really really dries the skin a lot. Dry skin as well as TOO oily skin can cause breakouts due to clogged pores.

Exfoliate gently (chemically or manually), use a gentle cleanser. If the bacne is inflamed (as in raised, red individual lesions), benzoyl peroxide is a great choice for treatment.
