A Simple Solution to Bacne

Apparently wedding planning causes bacne, or at least in my case it does. LOVE that my back exploded during the process of trying on dresses… makes one feel really confident about their big day.

Body acne is pretty normal, but it’s something I never really had to stress about. I do get the occasional chest acne, or zits where my sports bra hits my shoulders — normally a quick spot treatment or my Sunday Riley UFO oil does the trick. So when my back was covered with zits, I really had no idea what to do.


I played around with a few products that typically work well with my face, but I needed something a bit stronger. I’ve had a lot of luck with CosRx’s pimple patches in the past, so I figured i’d try their AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid.

This product worked beautifully! Not only did it help dry up my acne, but it also quickly lightened the dark spot caused by the acne. The reason why this product works so well is that the alpha hydroxy acid, in this case glycolic acid, is exfoliating the skin, brightening the skin, and reducing the appearance of whiteheads at the same time.

I had my finance apply the toner to my back every night (one of many reasons why i’m marrying him) after my shower, and within a month my back was back to normal!

How to Use

After you clean your face or body, pump a few sprays of this stuff on a cotton pad and wipe across your skin. If it’s too drying apply some moisturizer on after it absorbs into the skin.
