Tips On How To Get Rid Of your Blackheads

What are those?
Blackheads is a type of acne also known as comedones which look like small dark or grayish dots in the skin pores. These are caused by excess oil that is oxidized which causes them to turn black in color. These black pigmentation is not really result of dirt in the pores but it was actually cause due to the trapped sebum and bacteria in the pores which turn black due to melanin, the skin's pigment. Blackheads tend to be stable structures, and often take a long time to clear because the contents very slowly drain to the surface.

What Causes It?
There are many possible factors that cause blackheads to buildup. These are:
1.changing of hormonal levels in adolescent and other adult the leads to increasing of oil production on the skin.
2.Improper cleansing of the skin
3.pollution and high humidity in your surroundings
4.using some cosmetic products such as foundation, blush, eye shadow, moisturizers etc. that containing too much oil
5.Excessive dead cells on the skin which block the pores.
6.Too much oil in skin.

What are the treatments?
Treating blackheads are easy to do. But it requires a lot of time and great patience in you because effective results in treating it is not an instant. As i said before, blackheads are not cause by dirt, and constantly washing the affected area will not help at all. And it might just cause a serious problems in your skin if you constantly scrub or rinse your it. Thus, i will advice to just wash your face twice a day with a mild suitable soap to mainly control the oil in your skin. Also dont forget to remove makeups or other cosmetic products in your skin before going to bed at night. It will only harsh your skin and may absorbs and block the pores of your skin. It was also important to keep your skin hydrated to cleans the pores and prevent the formation of blackheads. So drink water regularly for at least 8 full glasses per day. But if you willing to spend money for this problem, dont hesitate to go on a professional dermatologist and im pretty sure that they will knock them out.

Although blackhead is not really a serious health threat, we must not ignore it because it still can cause you some emotional distress which can affect you a lot with the way you live. Just remember, a healthy and clean lifestyle is the most important way to have a healthy body. Hope this help. Enjoy!
