How to get rid of blackheads

No more blackheads!

Blackheads are a common skin condition that appears on your skin due to clogged follicles. Blackheads are NOT dirt as many think and if you have blackheads it doesn’t mean that you have a dirty or unclean face. So let’s bust that myth right now. Blackheads are dead skin cells and sebum (oil) that have been trapped within a pore. The reason why blackheads are black is because they contain oxidised melanin, the pigment made by skin cells called melanocytes.

What does NOT cause blackheads

  • Poor hygiene or inadequate face washing (excessive washing or scrubbing is likely to  make blackheads worse!)
  • Chocolate (HURRAY).
  • Nuts or greasy food *Jumping with joy*.

What causes blackheads?

Blackheads form when a clog or a plug develops in the opening of the hair follicles in your skin. Each follicle contains one hair and sebaceous gland that produces oil (sebum), which helps keep your skin soft. Dead skin cells and oils collect in the opening to the skin follicle, producing a bump called comedone. If the skin over the bump stay closed then you’ll get a whitehead. When the skin over the bump opens, exposure to the air causes it to look black. And that’s how you get a blackhead!

How to NOT get rid of blackheads

  • Scrubs - keeping in mind that blackheads are NOT dirt there is no need for you to scrub away at them with all you’ve got. Scrubs will only irritate the skin, cause redness and broken capillaries, not a good look. Please, step away from the face scrub.
  • Extractions - Unless it’s done professionally, don’t remove blackheads yourself. Since you have to apply A LOT of pressure on the blackhead to remove it can cause damage to the skin. So best leave it to the professionals.
