Professionals often call blackheads comodones or congestions. But why do we get them, and how can we prevent them from forming in the first place?
Blackheads may seem harmless at first, but if left untreated they can enlarge pores and lead to acne.
There are many causes for blackheads, but the main culprit is oil stuck in our pores. The black colour is the result of that oil oxidizing.
In treating facial comedones, the first step is to have them professionally removed. A purifying facial with extractions is a safe and effective way to achieve this. It is important that this step is handled by a professional, because improperly removed comedones can lead to much bigger problems like enlarged pores and acne breakouts.
Having blackheads professionally removed is only the first step to maintaining blackhead-free skin. People often resort to facial scrubs for blackhead maintenance, but they are only one part of the exfoliation process. Scrubs remove dead skin from the surface of the skin, but a deeper clean is needed to maintain blackhead-free skin.
The most effective products you can use to prevent blackheads from forming are Vitamin A cream and AHA Glycolic. They work by going deep into your pores to scoop out blockages, and are something you can add to your home skincare regimen.
By establishing a good skin regime, you will find that your skin stays not just blackhead free, but also brighter and more even toned.
