How to Get Rid of Blackheads

hot to get rid of acne and blackheads

Nothing can sabotage a beautiful complexion quite like the appearance of blackheads. Blackheads occur when your pores fill up with dead skin cells and dirt (ew!).ย  Some people are more prone to intrusive blackheads than others. Do you wish you could banish blackheads forever? There is no magic potion when it comes to making these pesky dirt-filled pores go โ€œpoof.โ€ There are a number of beauty treatments that can provide relief. Are you ready to take control over your skin? Welcome to blackhead boot camp.

Prevention is essential when it comes to avoiding blackheads. Skin is a breeding ground for bacteria and sebaceous fluids. You should be vigilant about not rubbing your hands or fingers on your face so that you don’t spread environmental bacteria on your skin. Make sure to audit your makeup collection and facial creams every few months. Old makeup and creams are often swimming with bacteria and toxins that can cause irritation and clog pores. You can also reduce the likelihood of blackheads appearing on your nose by dropping the habit of applying foundation there.

Beauty masks can help diminish the appearance of blackheads by providing an intensive flushing of your pores. Wearing a mask for a prolonged period of time allows the ingredients to penetrate your pores instead of simply beading on the surface of your skin. Clay masks are especially beneficial because they soak up the excess moisture from your skin.

Cruelty Free Suggestions:

Don’t Use Heavy Creams
Don’t clog your pores with heavy moisturizers. Adding heavy creams, foundations and SPF can undo all the work you’ve put into exfoliating your skin. Instead, try a serum or light, oil-free moisturizer followed by a mineral powder foundation.

Cruelty Free Suggestions:

A gentle exfoliating scrub can be your best friend when it comes to making blackheads vanish. An exfoliating cleanser can clear away old skin and reveal fresh skin. You can also purchase gentle exfoliating pads to get the task done. Always remember to avoid harsh sponges or cloths that might tear your skin. Never exfoliate the tender skin beneath your eyes.

Cruelty Free Suggestions:

Antibacterial Cleansers
The black substance you see inside your blackheads is full of bacteria. It is crucial to keep your skin clean so that the bacteria doesn’t spread to other areas of your face and increase the number of blackheads on your skin. A no-nonsense antibacterial cleanser should be introduced into your beauty routine every few weeks. The limited use of antibacterial cleansers is recommended since the overuse of these cleansers might unintentionally strip your skin of its own natural healthy oils – and lead to super-bugs. For a less-harsh antibacterial ingredient, try tea tree oil instead of triclosan.

Cruelty Free Suggestions:

Banish Blackheads and Love Your Skin
A great complexion starts with a beauty routine that’s focused on barricading blackheads from forming. Your beauty routine needs to be smart if you want your skin to look fresh. The smart ideas listed above will help you use your brain in the battle against blackheads.
