It's nothing to be embarrassed about. Acne can happen anywhere, not just your face. Aside from our faces, our backs are another popular place to (unfortunately) get breakout. What makes it an even easier place to breakout is the fact that our backs are especially hard to reach when in the shower.
Even if you're someone with a beautifully clear back, having a back facial is a great way to exfoliate the dead skin on your back and to deeply moisturize the skin in that area. It's a great idea before a special event where you'll be showing your back or just before the start of bathing suit season.
Luckily for those of you who are having trouble with keeping your back clear, there are back facials to help solve that problem. Like other facials, back facials are a great way to purify and cleanse the skin to help rid it of any imperfections, not to mention they're incredible relaxing.
A back facial follows the same steps as a classic facial would. Your esthetician will start off by cleansing and exfoliating the skin. During this step, there will most likely be steam involved to help open the pores and loosen any impurities which will help your esthetician remove them. Some back facials may involve extractions to help rid the skin of imperfections. After extractions, you can slip into a deep relaxation with a back massage to help fight stress and improve circulation. Post-massage, a mask is applied. The final steps involve moisturizing your back to help keep it hydrated and looking/feeling healthy.
While some guests opt for the back facial at stressful times in their life, it's actually recommended that you see your esthetician regularly for a monthly back facial to work on your skin health. Believe it or not, the skin on your back is just as important as the skin on your face. Regular visits will help to reduce acne, dehydration and flakiness of the skin and also improve your mood/health since you'll be spending time relaxing regularly.
