Declare war on blackheads!

Blackheads may seem impossible to remove but with the right techniques and products, you can send them packing!

What are blackheads?

Blackheads form when the skin’s pores are blocked by dead skin and sebum (the natural protective oil produced by the epidermis). The sebum oxidizes when exposed to air and turns black, hence the name.

What causes them?

Blackheads are the result of two combined issues: excess sebum production caused by stress and hormones, etc.; and pores that when too small, prevent the oil from escaping naturally.

WHERE DO THEY USUALLY APPEAR?

Oilier areas of the skin are more likely to get blackheads: the famous T-zone (the chin, nose and forehead) and the back.

HOW DO I PREVENT AND ELIMINATE THEM?

Getting rid of blackheads is one thing, preventing them from reappearing is another.

To win the war and not merely a few battles, you need to practice excellent skin hygiene and use certain key products.

HERE ARE 5 RULES TO FOLLOW:

  1. Don’t touch or fuss with your blackheads, as this can turn them into pimples or scars. But if you REALLY can’t help yourself, use a blackhead extractor rather than your fingers. This way, you’ll avoid spreading bacteria. Before removing blackheads, position your face above a bowl filled with boiling water for approximately 10 minutes. The steam will dilate your pores, making extraction easier.
  2. Remove makeup and cleanse your face every night to remove all traces of cosmetics and impurities that have accumulated throughout the day.
HERE ARE 5 RULES TO FOLLOW
  1. Use a facial cleansing brush or sponge to remove even more impurities.
  2. Once a week, give yourself a mask  (to absorb sebum) or a gentle scrub (to remove dead skin and refine your skin’s texture).  
  3. It’s important that your skin stays well moisturized. Contrary to popular belief, moisturizers—those appropriate for your skin type—do not clog pores. In fact, moisturizers are your allies since properly moisturized skin is better able to protect itself from external aggressors like the sun, wind and pollution, which can leave behind impurities.
