Blackheads are not a serious issue but if it is left untreated, it may worsen. Here’s how your care ritual should look if you experience frequent blackheads. The good news is that you have more options. Use products that are specially designed to clean and decongest the skin. A key ingredient in these products is salicylic acid – is the only ingredient that can act as a exfoliator inside the pores, helping to evacuate the dirt from pores.
Below we offer you the best care solutions to prevent and cure blackheads:
Pay attention when you go shopping!
Non-comedogenic products are those products that do not invade pores, especially designed for skin whose pores are visible and tend to remain open; search for this phrase on the cosmetics before buying them.
The best option is to use a cleansing oil – these are super-effective in deep cleansing the skin. Face exfoliation two to three times a week is very important; make sure you use products that contain salicylic acid. So, forget about the rule that says “oils shouldn’t be used on oily skin; as cleansiers oils are able to dissolve the sebum densely collected in the pores.
Do you want to remove the blackheads by yourself? Do not do it without soaking your face in steam or without applying a hot wet towel on your face for 10 minutes. And finally, rinse your face with cold water (add ice if you have), to close the pores and then apply astringent lotion and a product meant for pore shrinking.
Parsley can be a good ally in skin care; is rich in vitamin C, and can combat acne (as an infusion) or blackheads (as a mask of mashed green leaves).
