Blackheads may seem impossible to remove but with the right techniques and products, you can send them packing! Just read on!
Also known as comedones, blackheads are small clumps of dead skin cells, dirt and sebum that obstruct the pores and create small bumps. When they come into contact with the air, the sebum oxidizes and turns brownish or black, hence the name.
Not surprisingly, most blackheads appear in the areas that produce the most sebum, like the famous T-zone: the forehead, nose, chin area—but they can also appear on your shoulders and back.
Blackheads are the combined result of two issues: excess sebum production and pores that when too small, prevent the oil from escaping naturally. Mixed- or oily-type skin naturally produces more sebum but certain factors, like stress or hormonal changes can increase the production of sebum.
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:
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.
To deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate skin.
If you’re prone to acne, avoid very fine-grained scrubs, which can exacerbate the situation. Instead, choose glycolic acid scrubs which are gentler on your skin.
