Affordable Solutions for Chest & Back Acne/Bacne

I’ve been asked so many times about back acne. Most of them were teens so I wanted this list to feature affordable products. I still get bacne, one or two blemishes when it’s the time of the month. Here’s a list to help you reduce them while lightening the spots.

Kojie San Kojic Acid Soap

images-1I always recommend this because it’s effective. I personally use this and I like it. It dries up zits quickly and prevents dark spots. Hyperpigmentation is another problem with chest and back acne. Why not solve two problems at the same time, right? Look for a product with dual-function to get your money’s worth. You can get it for as low as 50 pesos depending on the weight and set quantity.

Belo Tranexamic Kojic Soap

images-2Another kojic-based soap but this time it has Tranexamic Acid. It’s stronger compared to Kojie San in my opinion. It also has lactic and salicylic acid. It has dual function too; treats and whitens. Belo is one of the most famous clinics in the Philippines. Luckily, we dont have to get it in their clinic. It’s sold in supermarkets and drugstores too. It’s 60 pesos per bar.

Snoe Shoozit Spray Me From Behind


It fights body blemishes with Anti-Acne PUREFIX-DC and pore-clearing Salicylic Acid. These powerful antibacterial agents purify skin from head-to-toe for an acne-fighting advantage wherever you need it. It is gentle enough for daily use. It’s 349 pesos for 100ml.

DIY Salicylic & Tea Tree Spray

If you’re masipag, you can make your own bacne spray. Get a spray bottle and pure salicylic acid at the drugstore. Rhea is famous for that. There’s below 20 pesos, 40 pesos depending on the size. Affordable, isn’t it? They have 10% salicylic acid. I wont recommend using it alone since it’s strong. Mix it with water and estimate how concetrated you’d like it to be. Dont forget to do a patch test first.

A mild option is tea tree spray. I recommend Human Nature’s Tea Tree Heritage Oil. It’s 295 pesos for 30ml. Mix it with water. You can use the oil alone if someone can apply it for you…. Cause it’s quite difficult to reach our back area.

You can also try apple cider vinegar spray. Mix it with water because it’s strong too. ACV smells quite funky so consider that if you’re sensitive to scents. The most raved ACV of Bragg’s is available in Healthy Options for 230 pesos.

I hope this will be helpful to someone out there. I know you guys are searching this topic. I can see it in my stats. Haha. What’s your favorite anti-acne treatment? We’d like to know. πŸ˜‰

By the way, I updated my list of Face Masks Under 500 pesos for Oily and Acne Prone Skin. Click here to read it.

  1. You can also try out sulfur or tea tree oil soap. πŸ™‚ I suggest buying Dr. Wong’s Sulfur Soap (the scented variant, with white packaging). I used it some years ago to get rid of tinea flava (an-an), and incidentally – it dried out my bacne.

    Tea tree oil soaps are commonly sold here, though. However, if you’ll be going to Boracay – Catch! Soaps has a tea tree oil variant that’s really cheap at P50 / big bar. It comes in other variants too! πŸ˜€
