Here’s how you can get rid of those blackheads naturally at home
The most common area where the blackheads appear is the face. In fact, they can be classified as a mild type of acne.
Our skin accumulates all kinds of grime like dirt, sebum, oil and dead skin cells on a daily basis. This can result in clogged pores and hair follicles, leading to skin-related concerns like blackheads, whiteheads, acne etc.
Blackheads look like tiny, raised bumps on the surface of the skin, mostly black in colour. They are caused when oil and sebum block the pores on your skin. This happens when the skin is not cleaned properly and the oil settles in the pores over time. And when it’s exposed to air, it oxidises and turns black, forming blackheads.
The most common area where the blackheads appear is the face. In fact, they can be classified as a mild type of acne. In medical terms, blackheads are open comedones. Blackheads are frequently seen on the nose, corner of the nose, cheeks, forehead and the chin area. But these can appear on other parts of the body as well. Read on as we tell you in detail how to get rid of blackheads naturally.
Exfoliate: If you have not started yet, it’s time to include exfoliation in your skincare regimen. Use a natural or cosmetic scrub, suitable for your skin type to slough off grime and dead skin cells from your skin. Concentrate on the blackhead-infested area while you are at it. Exfoliate at least once a week.
Facials: Getting facials regularly can help curb blackheads to an extent. Facials are a refreshing way to rid the skin of impurities, deep-seated debris and restore the glow.
Invest in the right products: If you have acne or blackhead-prone skin, it’s time you reconsidered your skincare products. Buy non-comedogenic products which are specially formulated to not clog the pores.
Keep skin clean at all times: Every time you step out of the house, your skin attracts dirt. If not cleaned well, it may lead to blocked pores increasing the chances of blackheads. Makeup can have the same effect on the skin and if not cleaned out completely, might result in blackheads and even breakouts. Always remember to remove makeup and wash your face before calling it a day.
Use clean laundry: As you sleep in your bed, oil and dirt from your face get rubbed on pillowcases and bedsheets. Not washing them regularly can lead to accumulation of grime which can get transferred to your face and clog pores, encouraging blackheads. It’s best to sleep on fresh pillowcases and bed sheets as often as you can.
