Discover how to get rid of blackheads.

Blackheads are small, dark pimples that form unsightly growths on the surface of your skin.

They are everywhere: on and around the nose, on the forehead, near the cheekbones, and even on the shoulders or back. No matter how hard you clean your epidermis, remove them, they always come back, inexorably. How to overcome?How to get rid of blackheadsHow to get rid of blackheads

If blackheads keep coming back, you haven’t adopted the right method to eliminate them and prevent their appearance. In this article, we reveal to you why they appear and what are the effective natural treatments to get rid of them permanently. You will soon see that blackheads will be just a distant, bad memory.

WHAT IS A BLACKHEAD?

Blackheads are dark brown pimples—usually the size of a pinhead—  embedded beneath the epidermis. While they are sometimes visible to the naked eye, it is also possible to feel them when you brush your face with your fingers as they form small, hard bumps.

They most often appear on oily skin which, by nature, tends to retain impurities and secrete a higher than normal amount of sebum.

CAUSES: WHY DO I HAVE BLACKHEADS?

Two phenomena promote their appearance: dilated pores and blockage of the sebaceous gland.

Dilated pores

For one reason or another (because they are blocked by impurities or following exposure to the sun) the pores dilate, widen, and become large open doors to bacteria.

Pollution and toxins accumulate there as well as dirt that stagnates in the air and sticks to the skin. All these particles will then form blackheads which will settle on the skin.

Open comedones linked to acne

Excessive sebum production is caused by a disorder of the sebaceous glands. Depending on the case, oily skin can carry blackheads when the pimple is open, impurities turn brown by oxidizing on contact with air, whiteheads when there is an infection, hard and painful mycrocysts, etc

There are different types of acne, some more severe than others and only a dermatologist can prescribe effective and adequate treatment.

BLACKHEAD TREATMENTS

The most tempting first move when you spot a blackhead is to fiddle with it and dislodge it with your fingers. This is the worst reflex to have! Hold back at all costs.

Your nails are indeed germ nests and can inflame the pimple. There are more effective tricks and less invasive tools that will help you remove unsightly blackheads and even prevent them from appearing.

Regular cleansing of the skin, especially if it is oily or in combination, is a must. But be careful not to attack the skin. Damaged skin defends itself by producing more sebum to repair it.

It’s the vicious circle! Sebum is a substance naturally produced by the body and it has a real utility in maintaining beautiful skin. It accomplishes a protective mission by preserving the stratum corneum and maintaining a certain suppleness of the skin.

The problem arises when the production is excessive and the excess sebum clogs the pores and thus causes acne pimples and blackheads.

In the evening, going through the make-up removal box and using a cleansing gel is mandatory, even if you never wear make-up. Pollution, air conditioning, etc. are all factors favoring the proliferation of bacteria on the skin.

To maintain healthy skin, it is recommended to treat yourself once a month to complete facial treatment with a beautician.

She will carry out a deep cleansing and exfoliation of the skin as well as an extraction of blackheads using a vapozone. Taking care of your skin is the best way to achieve long-term healthy skin and a luminous complexion.

blackhead vacuum cleaner

It is a small electrical device whose mission is to mechanically extract your blackheads. It is accompanied by a selection of tips that adapt to the type and size of the comedone to unclog as well as to the area of the face to be treated. You can adjust its absorption strength in several levels, depending on the pressure needed to dislodge the blackhead.

Apply the nozzle to the area to be cleaned and glide it over the entire skin. You will feel a suction cup sensation. The operation should in no way be painful. The skin should not be damaged. Proceed gently and repeat the operation if necessary. Remember to thoroughly clean and disinfect the mouthpiece after use.

This device is effective. Blackheads are effectively dislodged and dead skin is also eliminated. Finally, it is easy to use and very handy.

Usage precautions

It is recommended to limit its use to once a month, since excessive aspiration risks creating infections, stimulating the secretion of sebum even more, or leaving the pores permanently dilated.

What should be done before using this device?

Aspiration should always be preceded by skin cleansing with a suitable product.

Perform a facial sauna as the water vapor will open the pores and soften the dermis.

The green clay mask

Regularly applying a green clay mask to your face will win the war against blackheads. This natural powder absorbs excess sebum and unclogs blackheads thanks to its astringent properties. 

After rinsing, you will notice that the skin is immediately mattified, that it is purified, softer and smoother. Green clay also gently desquamates the epidermis to get rid of dead cells and all impurities.

How to apply the green clay mask?

Green clay is often marketed in the form of a powder that you must dilute in a little liquid (vegetable oil) to form a more or less thick paste.

You can also customize your mask with a few drops of hydrosol or essential oils of geranium or lavender which will bring radiance to the complexion. Apply the preparation to the entire face (except the eye and lip contour) and leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing.

Another option is to choose a ready-to-use mask adapted to your skin problems.

How often to use the mask?

Green clay is a natural product that you can apply twice a week to take full advantage of its benefits. You will find that your skin is cleaner and clear of blackheads.

The scrub

Exfoliation is one of the essential beauty rituals to eliminate impurities and dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of the skin.

Oily skin needs it even more since the sebum that is not evacuated ends up clogging the pores and promotes the appearance of blackheads. In addition, this oily film on the surface causes shine and harms the general appearance of the complexion.

Exfoliation consists of lightly exfoliating the skin with a product specially designed for this purpose and containing small abrasive particles. This treatment can be applied to the face but also the body. The ideal is to extend the product by making circular gestures that will improve blood circulation.

Exfoliation should not be done too frequently (1 to 2 times a week is enough) because there is a risk of attacking the skin.

There are also exfoliating products specially formulated for acne-prone skin and which are not mechanical but enzymatic (they work without the need to activate them by rubbing). You can also make your product from natural ingredients such as baking soda, strawberries, oatmeal, salt, or coffee grounds.

Finally, after a scrub, it is always important to moisturize the skin well.

What is the difference between a scrub and a peel?

Peeling consists of desquamating the skin with an acidic product. This operation aims to remove the superficial layer of the epidermis and to treat all visible imperfections such as dark spots, acne scars, fine lines, pimples, and blackheads. It must be performed by a dermatologist.

Yeast and lemon juice

Lemon alone is an extremely effective ingredient for removing blackheads and preventing their appearance since it regulates the very production of sebum.

To do this, apply pure lemon juice to the infected areas and leave it on overnight. Repeat this step for several days in a row if necessary and you will find that your skin will gradually become healthier.

The combination of lemon with baking powder will help you get rid of blackheads after just a few days. Yeast has astringent properties and will dislodge stubborn blackheads trapped in pores.

By mixing 20 ml of lemon juice with 10 g of baking powder, you will obtain an effervescent paste. Let it rest for a few minutes before spreading it directly on the portions of the face to be purified. Rinse off after 20 minutes.

Egg white mask

To cleanse your face thoroughly and firm your skin at the same time, take small squares cut from tissue paper and an egg white.

Whip the egg white with a drizzle of lemon juice before applying the mixture to the face. Then place the pieces of fabric on the skin, wait for the egg to dry completely, and remove them before rinsing thoroughly with clear water. Immediately, the skin gains in softness, purity, and freshness. Finish the treatment by properly moisturizing the epidermis to protect and regenerate it.
