Back acne is more common than you think. It's just that no one wants to admit it. With Clearasil, you can learn how to get rid of back acne and prevent it from coming back. But you're probably more outside of the norm if you've never had any zits on your back. Acne is actually common on the back and chest, although in some people it’s mainly confined to the face and is because the back and chest are where many hair follicles are and even if they don’t have hairs growing in them these can become blocked just like facial skin. These areas can also be oily, which means the pores can get blocked more easily. Boys in particular can get bad acne on the back and chest – it’s often worse on the back because this area is harder to cleanse, and the larger hair follicles mean bigger zits than on the face. But if you look after problem skin in these areas using the right medicated washes, you can get rid of back acne and have good skin by the summer, when it's more on show.
