How To Eliminate Blackheads



Unfortunately, blackheads are something most of us experience thanks to the skin's constant sebum production and cell turnover. But there are a few things you can do.

Here's How:

  1. Alpha hydroxy acids are also a good first line of defense. They gently exfoliate skin to prevent cells from building up and clogging pores.

  2. There have been mixed reviews on pore strips. Some love them while others have complained about losing a strip of skin. If you have sensitive skin it might be better to avoid these strips.

  3. Head off to the drugstore and look for salicylic acid cleanser. It will temporarily remove surface oil and pore-clogging debris.

  4. Really stubborn blackheads are best removed by a dermatologist and yes... it usually hurts.

  5. Retin-A is another defense that you might want to consider. A little stronger than the hydroxy acids, it loosens the blackheads while speeding up cell turnover. That means that skin cells have less of a chance to clog pores.

  6. There are lots of home remedies to try. Here are a few... Mix equal parts of lime juice, almond oil and glycerine and apply to the face.

  7. Beat an egg white until stiff. Add 1 tsp honey and then apply to area with a cotton swab. Leave for 1/2 hour and then rinse with warm water.
