Here is how to deal with Bacne at home:

  1. Aloe Vera: Known for its many medicinal benefits, aloe vera helps to prevent back acne and heals the scars. Apply fresh aloe vera gel on the back and keep it on for 20-25 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Do this twice a day for better results.
  2. Turmeric with sesame oil: Mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder with sesame oil until it forms a paste. Apply the paste on your back and leave it on for about an hour. The anti-inflammatory properties present in both turmeric and sesame oil prevents further breakouts.
  3. Tea tree oil: Known for its anti-bacterial properties, tea tree oil wards off the acne causing bacteria. Dab a cotton ball in tea tree oil and gently rub it on the back. Leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes and wash with lukewarm water. People with sensitive skin should dilute the oil before using it.
  4. Lemon juice: Full of citric acid, lemon juice opens up clogged pores and also prevents further breakouts. Use a cotton ball to apply lemon juice on the affected area and wash with lukewarm water after a few hours. One can also mix rosewater with lemon juice.
  5. Tomato pulp: Tomatoes contain antioxidants that protect the skin against acne causing bacteria. They also close the pores and prevent bacteria, dirt, and oil from entering the skin cells. Rub tomato pulp on the acne scars and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash it with lukewarm water.
