My Back is a mess! Stretch marks and Acne. Help!

Hey guys...for the longest time I have had stretch marks on my lower back (I am six foot two and I think it is from growth spurting when I was a teen. It could be scars tho? I will try to get a picture. How can I get rid of them?? They look terrible...also I have always had acne on my back. I wash my sheets and try to drink alot of water...but its still there! Its not terrible...but it sure doesn't look good. Any input would be appreciated

Re: My Back is a mess! Stretch marks and Acne. Help!

Best way to get rid of stretch marks is rubbing in cocoa butter or a stretch mark treatment.

For acne, you may just need to wash with a different cleanser. If your skin is at all oily, try a cleanser that removes a little more oil. Use a washcloth to be sure you are cleaning well.

If that doesn't work, an acne treatmet with salicylic acid takes the swelling out of cysts and nasty bumps, often in just a few hours. I use the arthritis medicine Aspercreme, because it costs about $5 for a giant 10-ounce tube.
