How to get rid of blackheads?

Recommended Posts

First, understand exactly what blackheads are so you don't damage your skin by trying to scrub them away. Blackheads are just a mix of oil and dead skin cells that are sitting in pores. When exposure to air it causes them to oxidize and turn black. Having them is not a sign that you're too dirty, so don't cause more damage by being rough with your skin and scrubbing really hard.

Creme with Salicylic acid is a great option for dissolving those blackheads away, and it can be found in lots of over-the-counter skincare products. You can use a leave-on product or a cleanser or soap, but the longer the exposure to the active ingredient, the better it'll work hence leave-on is the best choice. After using a salicylic acid product for several weeks, many of the blackheads will resolve, but others will just loosen.

There are more things to do like masks or retinoid etc...

I had a really bad problem with blackheads. The worst thing is that blackheads are a sign of acne. I was already doing the basics to prevent them such as keeping my face clean, not using too many products that didn't suit my skin but nothing was working. 

I was then recommended a blackhead vacuum. After just a few weeks of using it I started getting results. The good thing about it is that it suits everyone because is not a product or a mask that is going to give you a bad reaction.

I will tell you where I got mine from:

Use a comedones extractor.
 

  1. After cleansing your skin, place the loop over the blackhead and apply gentle pressure, then pull the tool down. ...
  2. Do not press too hard. ...
  3. Make sure you clean your skin and the tool after use to avoid the spread of bacteria and possibly clogging other pores.

    • 10 WAYS EYELINER CAN MAKE YOUR EYES LOOK BIGGER Faking bigger eyes is a covetable makeup trick that just about every guru has mastered. Although we can’t promise a magical doe eyes at the drop of a hat, we can give you some easy, foolproof ways to make your own eyes bigger and brighter using only eyeliner and mascara (no shadow necessary). Ahead, find ten simple looks that use eyeliner and a tinge of mascara to get those rounder, enviable eyes. How To Prep 1. Dab on lightweight eye cream to hydrate. Focus only on the area under the eyes, not lids (as this will cause makeup to smear). The cream should absorb quickly and leave your skin feeling smooth but not greasy. Try Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting And Firming Eye Cream. 2. Apply a color corrector to neutralize dark circles. Pick an orange-based corrector and apply with a small brush. Make sure to go up to the lashline, as well as the inner corner of the eye to lighten the dark area by the nose. Let the color sit on your skin instead of blending in. Try L'Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. 3. Pat concealer directly on top of the corrector. This will virtually erase any darkness and create a smooth, clean palette for your eye makeup.  Use your ring finger to blend the concealer carefully. We recommend the Maybelline New York FaceStudio Master Camo Color Correcting Kit for this step. 4. Keep concealer from sliding away throughout the day with powder.  Choose a translucent powder, like the L'Oréal Paris Hydra Perfecte Loose Powder and lightly dust it all over the face.See More :  WINTER EYE MAKEUP TUTORIALS FOR BROWN EYES   How To Get The Look Shimmery Bright
