Just like facial blemishes, back acne — or “bacne”, for those who love a catchy portmanteau — is a fact of life and nothing to be ashamed of. Even the most glamorous celebrities aren’t immune to it.
Christie Kidd is a dermatologist who also happens to be Kendall Jenner’s “skin guru” (and yes, even Ms Jenner deals with acne). In a recent video on the model’s website, Dr Kidd explained how the way many women wash and condition their hair could result in breakouts on their back.
“We wash our hair, we condition it, and when our conditioner is sitting that’s when we wash our body. Then the last we do is rinse out our conditioner,” she said.
Watch: Looking for a new primer? It sounds weird, but this men’s shaving balm does the trick. (Post continues after video.)
