Just about every at some point or another has come into contact with a blackhead on their face. This is a startling discovery for people, especially since so many people assume that blackheads are dirt, which means that those with blackheads are not washing their face. If this were the case, then blackhead removal would simply consist of washing the face. While washing the face is an important part of blackhead removal and basic hygiene health, you want to make sure that you are taking extra steps in order to completely get rid of the blackheads.
One thing that is important to know is that while you can remove the current blackheads, there really is no cure for them and they will most likely return. This is because blackheads form in follicles that are wider than the rest. Dead skin cells and sebum collect in this large follicle. When the air hits this material, there is a chemical reaction that takes place, which causes the material to turn black. As you can see, the blackness of the material has nothing to do with dirt.
The first thing you want to do is to make sure that you are washing your face properly. Just because you are washing your face does not mean that you are washing it properly. Avoid bar soaps and stick with mild scrubs, as this is the best way to make sure that your skin is being properly cleaned without causing more skin problems. Make sure that you are washing your face with warm water, as this will allow your pores to open and to be cleansed properly. When you are rinsing your face, rinse it with cold water so that the pores close back up. Pat your face dry.
Now, you are ready for blackhead removal. Some people are afraid to squeeze the blackheads because they were taught to never squeeze pimples. The thing is though; the blackhead is not your average puss filled pimple that may or may not be ready to "pop". Blackhead removal is not more than pushing out material that is already exposed to the open air through a hole. When it comes to blackhead removal though, you want to make sure that you are doing it right in order to make sure that you are getting all of it out.
In order to keep more oils from your skin, you will want to use a piece of soft tissue paper on the tip of each finger. This will also help to make sure that you are not further damaging the skin when you are doing the blackhead removal. Push down in order to get underneath the blackhead and then make sure that you are pushing up. This will clear your pore of the blackened material.
There are many products and treatments on the market that claim to be the best of the best when it comes to blackhead removal. You will want to take everything that these companies say with a grain of salt. This is because most of these products either do not work at all or only work for a handful of people, compared to the mass numbers of people who have problems with blackheads.
This is not to say that there is not a product out there that works well. It is just that you want to make sure that you are doing as much research as possible when you are trying to find the best blackhead removal process. The more you research and look for the testimonials of other people, the better off you will be.
Once you find the method or treatment that works the best for you, you will want to make sure that you are sticking with it. In addition, since blackhead removal is something that you will most likely have to continue doing, since there is no cure, you will become very used to the process.
Blackhead removal is something that will only take you a few moments a few times a week. Even if you skip out on blackhead removal for a couple of weeks, in most cases, the blackheads cannot be seen by other people unless they are really close to your face.
