What are blackheads?
Blackheads also known as open comedones are black-tipped plug clogging a pore of the skin and occur with or without acne. They are said to be the first stage of acne. They are called blackheads because they look black or dark in color. But this is mostly not the case since some blackheads can be yellowish in color. Comedones and acne in general usually develop after the beginning or early stages of puberty.
Studies indicate that blackheads or comedones can affect people with any type of skin, but they are generally more common in those with oily skin. According to American Academy of Dermatology, acne affects about 40 - 50 million Americans.
They are caused by many factors. For instance, overproduction of oil, changes in your hormones, bacteria, genetic factors. They are annoying but if they are not effectively treated, they can lead to acne.
Given below are ways you can remove or prevent comedones from forming.
How to get rid of blackheads
1. Wash your face
Blackheads are known to appear on the skin as a result of oil buildup. However, the best approach to get rid of your blackheads is to wash your face properly. Dermatologists or skin specialists recommend washing the face once or twice each day with a gentle soap.
Use a mild soap that has been approved by dermatologists for the face. Do not wash your face with harsh cleansers since it will make your skin produce more oil leading to blackheads. Make sure your hands and fingers are clean when washing the face and use a good recommended facial cleanser afterwards.
2. Squeeze them out
In order to do this, you need to use warm water or take a warm shower to warm your skin to properly squeeze them out. Steaming the face helps to soften and expands comedones and makes it much easier to remove or squeeze out the blackheads. It is however recommended you use an extracting tool to remove your blackheads. The extraction can also be done at a salon or you can have a skin specialist do it.
3. Apply natural remedies
Applying natural remedies such as lemon juice, clay mask, yogurt, honey, baking soda, oatmeal, and others onto your skin can help you get rid of your blackheads.
4. Eat a healthy diet
Have a habit of adding fruits and vegetables to your daily diet. It will ensure that your skin have all the necessary nutrients and vitamins it needs. Cut down your fats and carbohydrates intake to help you prevent the development of blackheads.
5. Reduce the use of makeup
Too much makeup on the face can clog pores and worsen the situation causing more blackheads and even whiteheads. Skin experts or dermatologists also recommend you wash off your makeup every evening before bed time with the use of beauty products without oil - that is using skin products recommended for evening use.
6. Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliating your skin is also a good way to remove blackheads. The good news is getting rid of blackheads is easy through proper exfoliating of the skin. One known key element to exfoliate the skin is the use of baking soda. You mix the baking soda with either apple cider vinegar or water and create a scrubbing paste. Apply it to the affected area and wait for about 20 minutes then rinse.
This blackhead treatment is known to get rid of blackheads by absorbing excess oil on the face and eliminating bacteria.
7. Using Toothpaste (And Salt)
Another way to get rid of blackheads is to use a mixture of toothpaste and salt on your face. You do this by mixing together a pint of salt and an inch-sized paste in a small bowl and apply it on the affected area with a toothbrush. Gently scrub the face for a short period of time. It is advised you keep the toothpaste away from the eyes to prevent irritating to the eyes. (NOTE: Use a different toothbrush and not the one you use to brush your teeth)
