When the oil seeps through, it creates a “crater” which remains open and susceptible to grime, dust and more oil. This is when the blackish part starts to form. Blackheads can be quite a problem especially if you need to face a lot of people every single day. Luckily, experts have come up with easy tips to follow on blackhead removal.
First of all, if you’re fond of wearing make-up, you must say adieu to oil-based make-up and other oil-based skin products. These will not be helpful if you want to follow a good and effective blackhead removal regimen. These oil-based items will only trigger more blackheads and even more acne! Dermatologists recommend that you use water-based make-up instead. These water-based products will keep your pores from clogging.
Secondly, any blackhead removal routine will not be as effective if you stop drinking water. You must drink lots of H2O as this keeps your skin rejuvenated and hydrated. Rejuvenated skin will have healthy skin pores and chances are the pores won’t be susceptible to too much sebum or oil.
Thirdly, you must stop scrubbing your face with very harsh abrasives. Doing this may also lead to lesions. Don’t irritate your skin any further by putting on harsh chemicals. These chemicals may only even worse the situation. Before you put products that contain strange or unfamiliar chemicals, best to consult a medical professional. No harm will be done if you consult someone in the know!
Fourthly, nothing beats good ol’ regular wash. Your blackhead removal efforts will not work if you do not follow the most basic principle of all — keep your face clean at all times! You must wash your face on a regular basis. Using anti-acne, anti-bacterial facial cleansers will indeed help. Make sure, though, that you do not rub your face too much as this will also irritate your skin.
Rinse your face with lukewarm water and then with cold water. This is helpful since the lukewarm water will “open” up your pores and then the cold water will “close” them. This will lock in all the bacteria-killing microbes inside your skin pores, getting rid of the blackheads in the process.
As you can very well see, blackhead removal is pretty easy to do. Just have the patience and determination to follow a good regimen and you’re good to go.
