The Complete 101 on Blackheads
If you have acne, chances are you have to deal with blackheads as well. We know that they can be as stubborn as pimples, but what else do we know about them? It’s time to learn more about blackheads so you can take steps to prevent them.
Here are some important things you need to know about blackheads:
Blackheads and pimples are different.
Both are types of acne blemishes but both appear differently and should be treated differently.
How do you prevent blackheads?
To prevent and eventually get rid of blackheads, your skin care routine should focus on clearing your pores to allow a normal flow of oil, minimize excess oil, and sloughing off layers of dead skin cells.
- Use a gentle, water-soluble cleanser
to thoroughly cleanse the skin without overdoing it. You don’t want to make your skin feel tight or dry; this only makes the skin produce more oil.
- Avoid greasy products.
Thick creams or lotions can clog the pores. Stick to lighter formulas instead.
- Try exfoliating products
like scrubs and masks that help remove dead skin cells.
Can I get rid of blackheads myself?
When blackheads crop up, avoid squeezing them to get them out because this can only damage your skin in the long run. If you feel the need to have them manually removed, have your dermatologist do it for you.
