A back facial is a skin treatment which is formulated specifically for the back. Some spas refer to a back facial as a “bacial.” Back facials utilize many of the techniques used in skin treatments for the face, and they are supposed to clarify and soften the skin of the back while providing a deep moisturizing treatment which will leave the client with a healthy, glowing back. Back facials for both men and women are available, in a wide range of formulations which target specific skin types or issues such as clogged pores and acne on the back.
P eople often have trouble maintaining a skin care regimen for their backs since the back is notoriously hard to reach. With the assistance of back scrubbing shower tools, most people can keep their backs clean, reducing clogged pores and other skin problems, but it can be hard to moisturize the back or to treat dry skin and other irritating and sometimes unsightly conditions. While a back facial might sound slightly silly, this spa treatment can actually be quite beneficial, especially for people who spend a lot of time in low-backed clothing or swimsuits.
