Summer is here and so is backless dress season! Having a solid body care routine will always be the necessary base for achieving a sexy back. 

One of the most common concerns for the body is having breakouts or pigmentation, as the back is harder to reach there are a few products that I have found that make it significantly easier.

Isdin Acniben 360 Body Spray

With this spray you will not have to perform an acrobatic routine trying to reach all of your back. The 360 degree spray and aerosol format allows you to safely and evenly distribute glycolic and salicylic acid to give the back an overhaul. As the body is more robust than the face, you can exfoliate everyday (if your skin type permits it). I would recommend using the spray in the evening before moisturiser.

The Perfect Peel Bodywash 

This body wash is packed with anything and everything you could possibly think of when it comes to fighting breakouts and pigmentation. As the bodywash is on the pricier side, I would recommend using this in your routine three times per week. To maximise results you can leave the wash on your skin for 2 minutes before washing it off. With 15% glycolic acid, azelaic acid, glutathione and retinyl palmitate, your back will be as bright as the sun, while feeling like mulberry silk.

Sol De Janeiro Brightening Bom Dia Bright Body Cream

Sol De Janeiro is well known for their scrumptious smelling body line and this recent launch is no different. The Bondi Dia Cream is lightly fragranced with a sweet citrusy scent and also contains AHAs to leave your skin feeling bright and kissable.

Japanese Washcloth  

I apparently never knew peace until I found the Japanese washcloth. This handy wash cloth is so easy to use, makes the back easy to reach and you can put it in with your laundry to clean. 

Shiseido Sports Invisible Protective Mist

The minute you decide to have your back on show is the minute you commit to wearing sunscreen, you will not be able to see the effects of your skincare routine without it. You can use sunscreen, but the Shiseido mist makes it easier to reapply without leaving you feeling sticky. This particular sunscreen is factor 50 with a dewy finish.

The most important thing when aiming for a sexy back is to have a routine that you can implement regularly and being patient with your skin.
