Your hair looks great, your nails are on point, and your face has got that summer flush we wait for all year. But what about your back? Is out of sight really out of mind? After all, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not important.
If you’re ready for summer and all the halter, tank, strapless and other back-bearing tops, but you aren’t sure if your back is necessarily ready, here are some tips from Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach for getting your sexy back, just in time for warmer weather!
Wear Natural Fibers
Wearing natural fibers will let your skin breathe, minimizing clogged pores and reducing the risk of ‘bacne’, those pesky breakouts that appear on the back. Natural fibers are not only softer, they may also even help you stay cooler in the summer months. This doesn’t just include clothing, but bedding as well. After all, we spend many hours each night in the same sheets - sweating and natural body oil can irritate our back as we sleep, especially if we are back sleepers. Be sure to use sheets made with natural fabrics, and wash them frequently.
Keeping skin clean and sweat and oil free can help keep skin clear of acne and clogged pores in the spring and summer. Washing your back at least once a day can help keep your skin feeling fresher by rinsing away excess body oil that might otherwise cause blemishes to the skin.
Be Mindful of Long Hair
Do you have long hair? Sometimes the oils from your hair can transfer to the skin on your back, adding to the sebum already on your skin. This in turn clogs the pores, creating more or worse acne. If you do have long hair that gets greasy or touches your back frequently, consider tying it up in the summer months to minimize contact with the skin, and wash with a shampoo for oily hair.
Use Non-Comedogenic Products
When we go out into the sun, it is important to use an SPF all over our bodies, especially on the face and back. Unfortunately, some products are comedogenic, meaning they can clog pores. When selecting a sunblock, be sure to find a product that states “non-comedogenic” or opt for an all natural sunblock with zinc and titanium dioxide as the active ingredients.
Get a Back Facial
At Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, we offer a special Back Facial which is specially designed to target the hard to reach back. This treatment covers the entire back, neck, and upper arms. The Back Facial deep cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates, using a special purifying mask that will leave your back feeling soft and clear of impurities.
