Although acne was once considered to only affect teenagers, it is now recognized as a condition that starts in the teenage years and continues into adulthood. Another general misassumption with this skin condition is that it only affects the face, however body acne is almost as common and can often be more unsightly, embarrassing and difficult to treat—especially on the hard to reach back area. Thicker than facial skin and well laden with sebaceous oil glands, the back area is prone to exactly the same acne related conditions, including frequency, persistence and scarring.
Glytone has an easy solution to treat ongoing breakouts on the back and shoulders with their
Glytone Back Acne Spray, an effective 2% salicylic acid spray-on treatment for acne. Formulated with proven blemish fighting salicylic acid, the spray works as a keratolytic agent to encourage the sloughing of dead skin cells and the unclogging of pores, providing an effective treatment for mild acne, oily skin, textural changes and post-inflammatory hyper- pigmentation. DIY application is a cinch, with an innovative pump bottle that allows for convenient, targeted upside down spraying ─ every time, every treatment!
Remember that just about any acne treatment needs to be at least 2% salicylic acid, if you are wanting a BHA exfoliant, so this one certainly meets the standard. Also, it will make an excellent treatment for ingrown hairs especially in the bikini area, if you are prone to them. Try using it at night before bed so that it has plenty of time to work.
