Behati Prinsloo

Behati Prinsloo goes back to basics with her party get up


Don’t let bacne ruin your party vibe. Whilst we might be donning the faux fur and wrapping up elsewhere, the holiday season calls for a new erogenous zone – namely the back. Afterall, there’s nothing chicer (or sexier) than revealing a bit of flesh in the form of a backless dress (Sienna is our total back-spiration). But whilst the odd party-pooping zit on your face is easy enough to cover up, on your back? Not so much (not to mention the amount concealer you’d end up using). Keep your back looking silky smooth and blemish free with our pick of the best back acne products (and bacials) out there.

Feel blissed out whilst banishing blackheads with this back-perfecting treatment which includes a cleanse, steam, exfoliation and massage followed by a deep cleansing mask.

Back Acne Treatment at the Dr Terry Clinic, £180 for 90mins

Great for problem skin, this medical-grade back acne treatment incorporates peels, blue light therapy, extractions and a soothing mask to calm any redness (a course of six is recommended for optimum results).

Eradicate damage from all those summers spent lying on the beach with your nose in a magazine with this rejuvenating skin treatment for the back.

You know those annoying bumps you get on the backs of your arms? 40% of the population know all about them too (the amount of people estimated to suffer from Keratosis Pilaris or ‘chicken skin’). We love this skin-smoothing body lotion which uses Alpha Hydroxy therapy to help re-texturise rough, bumpy skin.
