What is backne?

Backne is a slang term for acne that appears on the back, shoulders, and upper arms. It is a common skin condition that is characterized by the presence of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and cysts on the skin. Backne can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, genetics, stress, sweat, and friction from clothing or backpacks. It can be uncomfortable and unsightly, but it is generally not a serious health concern. Treatment options for backne include back facials with Kerry as well as lifestyle changes such as wearing breathable clothing, showering after exercise, and avoiding tight-fitting clothing.


A backne facial is a type of skin treatment that specifically targets acne on the back, shoulders, and upper arms. A typical backne facial menu description may include a deep cleansing treatment to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, which can clog pores and lead to acne. This may be followed by a gentle exfoliation to further unclog pores and smooth the skin's surface. Next, a purifying mask may be applied to the back to help draw out impurities and reduce inflammation.
