Say "Bye-Bye" to "Bacne" - Back Acne.

Most girls (and guys) my age are struggling with an ugly condition which I call "bacne", short for back acne. Unfortunately, it seems to be just another one of those facts of teenage life. While some people get big red bumps, I am lucky to only have smaller pimples that feel and look more like rough skin, rather than a  full blown pimple. Either way, it is embarrassing.

Not only is bacne embarrassing, it is more difficult to treat than facial, especially on this hard to reach back area.  I did find a solution though and I just had to share. Glytone has an easy solution to treat ongoing breakouts on the back and shoulders with their Back Acne Spray.

Glytone Back Spray is an effective 2% salicylic acid spray-on treatment for acne. It is formulated with proven blemish fighting salicylic acid.

       See also: How to Get Beautiful Skin in 5 Steps.

"The spray works to encourage the sloughing of dead skin cells and the unclogging of pores, providing an effective treatment for mild acne, oily skin, textural changes and post-inflammatory hyper- pigmentation"

The spray is so easy to use. It comes in a pump bottle that allows for even upside down spraying ─ every time, every treatment! I use it every nght after my shower after I dry off. My back is looking much more clear just after a few weeks of using.

You can learn more about Glytone products at their website. My Mom received one of these Back Sprays in a gift bag, but she already re-ordered one for me at Dermstore.com. It costs $17.00 for the 2 oz. bottle and $34.00 for the 8 oz. bottle.

My 4 Favorite Bronzers.

I think I use a bronzer almost everyday. When I go for an all out made up look or a natural one (which I do for school), I depend on a bronzer to bring a bit of color and glow to my face.

I am lucky enough to try so many bronzers and my friends are always asking me which ones work best. I figured I would tell them and you at the same time. Out of the ones I have tried, these are my 4 Favorite Bronzers that I keep on my makeup table.

Benefit Cosmetics Dallas - $28.00

This is a pretty golden rose shade of bronzer. I really like this one when I feel tired as it warms up my complexion, giving me a healthy glow. Sometimes I layer this one over one of the more brown based bronzers listed below.

Stila Sun Gel Bronzer - $24.00

This is my favorite gel bronzer that I sometimes use on more than just my cheeks! It is pretty to even dab on my eyes and lips for a really pretty golden glow. It lasts all day too, which I like.

 COVERGIRL TRUblend Microminerals Bronzer -$11.00

I saw this one at CVS and just had to have it. I love how it is portable for when I think I might need a touch up on the go. I throw it in my back pack and sweep the bronzer with the brush over my cheeks, chin, forehead and tip of my nose. The bronzer and brush come in one sleek compartment making it simple and easy to use.

MAC Creme Bronzer from MAC To the Beach - $25.00

This one just came out and I took it from my Mom right away. It is a cream bronzer that is so easy to blend and it lasts all day. I use it alone on my cheeks or with Dallas (above) for a little extra shimmer. This creamy bronzer has 2 colors. I use Beach Bronze.

So, what's your favorite bronzer? Did yours make my favorites list? Do you prefer a powder, gel or creamy? I can't wait to hear. PLEASE leave me a comment about your favorite bronzer!!!
