Let’s talk about blackheads and whiteheads and also ways of getting rid of them.
Remember if we treat them early enough, we can avoid pimples and scars later on.
Ok, with that said, let’s get cracking.
Do you recall that our blackheads and whiteheads aren’t really acne? But are formed when our pores are clogged with sebum and debris?
We’re sure you do.
But what about their colors? Do you know why they’re either black or white?
Well simply put; blackheads are exposed to air while whiteheads aren’t.
Sometimes we hear others refer to blackheads as open comedones. That’s because of the clogged pores aren’t totally sealed. Therefore, the air gets inside and reacts with the sebum making it black in color.
Whiteheads, on the other hand, are closed comedones??
And you’ve guessed it. The exact opposite happens.
No air can get into the plugged pores so the sebum remains white.
A Free Lesson in Whiteheads and Blackhead Removal
So how do we remove blackheads?
Have you ever tried squeezing blackheads out of the pores?
Does that work?
We’re sure it doesn’t. No matter how hard we squeeze they don’t budge that easily, do they?
Neither does pinching or popping blackheads. That doesn’t do any good either. Nor would steaming bring any luck.
I guess that sebum and debris are pretty much stuck in there.
So?? what works?
Well here?s the best way to remove blackheads and whiteheads. We can start with a combination of chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments.
These whitehead and blackhead extractors can literally? The seals of our clogged pores. This makes it easier to get that sebum and debris out.
But?? It takes a number of repetitions for this to work. In other words, we won’t get rid of blackheads and whiteheads on our first try.
So here’s the procedure:
Exfoliate your facial skin every night with a serious- grade glycolic pad. This ensures that your T-zone is free of clogged pores.
In case you’re wondering, your T-zone is the forehead, nose and chin area. It’s the oiliest region of our faces. So keep it clean especially before you go to bed.
Alright, once we’ve started using the glycolic pads the next step is to get rid of dead skin.
Purchase a microdermabrasion cream and use it once or twice a week.
Hey, if you got oily skin, then use the cream 3 to 4 times instead. Keep doing this and after a while, you’ll see some results.
You can even enhance your efforts by using chemical peels. These peels will burn the top layer of dead skin off of your face.
But I must warn you that they can be dangerous if they’re done wrong. Please get a doctor to assist you.
Once you’ve started opening up the clogged pores, use your cleansers and toners to get rid of the sebum and debris.
Remember, all your blackheads and whiteheads won’t go away on the first try. Be patient and persistent and it’ll pay off sooner or later.
That brings us to the end of whiteheads and blackheads.
