Blackheads are a common complaint that many people have when it comes to their skin, and although they may only be small and not instantly noticeable, they can really have an effect on how confident you feel about your skin.
Blackheads appear when pores get blocked, and blocked pores could be caused by a number of factors- including excess oil production and an inefficient cleansing regime. This is another reason why it is absolutely imperative that a proper skin care routine is followed morning and night. If you wear makeup this is even more important, as heavy products can block pores.
However, there’s no reason to let blackheads get you down, as they are easy to remove and prevent.
Firstly, you need to make sure that the cleanser that you use is effective enough the clean pores sufficiently, but without drying them out. Dermalogica have a line of cleansers that cover most skin types. So whether you have dry, oily, sensitive or combination skin, there’s a cleanser out there for you.
Regularly using an exfoliant, such as Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant, will help to get rid of dead skin cells and debris which promote blocked pores.
Steam treatments may help to loosen existing blackheads, and pore strips can also be extremely useful.
