3 Steps for a Bare-Worthy Back
Our back is often the most neglected part of our body. Out of sight and out of reach, it is more difficult to care for the skin on our backs and so, sometimes, we ignore that skin altogether. That neglect can lead to dry skin and acne. For most of the year, having less-than-perfect skin on your back can go unnoticed because it is hidden under sweaters and jackets. When warmer weather comes, however, our backs are bared a lot more often. Swimsuits, tank tops, and backless dresses all leave our backs open to scrutiny and you’ll feel much more confident with healthy, beautiful skin. Here’s how to achieve it:
- Give yourself more beautiful skin from the inside out with Beauty Tonic. As we age, our bodies slow their production of collagen which can lead to dry, dull, and imperfect skin. Beauty Tonic is a collagen supplement that can make up for your body’s slow production. It contains the two collagen types your body needs to repair and protect your skin, leading to smoother, well-moisturized, beautiful skin you can be proud of.
- If you struggle with acne on your back, it might be partially due to how difficult it is to clean that skin properly. Instead of trying to awkwardly reach around and inevitably missing a spot, it’s a good idea to invest in a soft-bristled scrubbing brush that will help you reach all of your skin. Using a back scrubber can help you exfoliate dead skin away and clean dirt out of your pores so that you are at a much lower risk for acne.
- To make sure your skin stays healthy, protect it from the sun. With your back on display more often, there is an increased risk of sun damage from painful sunburns to sunspots or even skin cancer. Sun exposure can cause skin to dry out and develop fine lines much more quickly. So, if you’re going to be baring your back this summer, protect it with a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF30 and be cognizant of limiting exposure when the sun is most powerful.
Following these three steps will leave you with skin you’re proud to wear bare. Whether it’s a beach day or even a wedding day, you should never have to hide your back because of blemishes or dull, dry skin. Just because it’s out of sight doesn’t mean your back should be out of mind; remember to take care of all of your skin all year so that you’ll always look and feel great.
