How to Clear Blackheads
How to Clear Blackheads
If you have been trying to figure out how to clear blackheads, there are a few options out there you can choose from. One of the best “treatments” for blackheads is a proper facial skin care regimen.
Now, there are many products out there that you can choose from if you want to create a removing blackhead skin care regiment – so it’s up to you what products to choose. Some people find some medications/acne treatments more effective than other medications, so it’s up to you to choose what products you want to use. In general, however, you should try to use natural medications (such as tee tree oil) over synthetic medications (like benzyl peroxide) because natural treatments don’t dry your skin out.
Blackheads are caused by too much oil in your skin. By having a proper skin care regimen, you can cut down on the amount of sebum skin oil present on your face, and thus reduce the number of new blackheads produced. A good skin care regimen will also help remove excess bacteria – a major factor to getting rid of acne blemishes on your face.
Now, what sort of skin care products to use for your face?
You should have a proper face wash. The best face washes will include some sort of acne-fighting qualify – benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid, tea tree oil etc. However, you can also simply opt for some sort of mild, non comedogenic soap. It’s also recommended you use a toner after a face wash to restore balance to your face.
After washing your face with face wash and applying a toner, you will want to use some sort of mild acne medication. There are many acne medications out there you can try. I personally use tea tree oil here because it’s proven to be effective against acne outbreaks and it does not dry out your skin like other acne medications.
You then should apply a moisturizer to your skin. Moisturizer helps to protect your skin from the elements.
You should follow this skin care regimen twice a day, once in the morning, and once in the evening. While this skincare regiment may not get rid of your blackheads fast, it will visibly reduce the number of blackheads visible on your skin over the course of a month.
This skin care regimen can help clear up both acne and blackheads. However, it’s important that you are consistent with the regimen, otherwise it will not be effective. Keep on the regimen for at least a month or two before changing it – it can take a month or more just to start to see a difference in the complexion of your skin. How to get rid of blackheads really depend on how persistent you are with your skin care regimen.
