How do I get rid of black heads?

How to get rid of blackheadsThanks so much for your question.

There are some simple things you can do that will really make a very big difference to this issue. I would say the four most important things you need to do are as follows:

1) Appropriate cleansing and exfoliation.
You need to be using a good quality cleanser that isn’t soapy and will not dehydrate your skin or cause it to dry out. You also need to make sure you’re exfoliating at least once a week. There are so many great options when it comes to exfoliation. It really depends on your skin. I am pro using exfoliating enzymes twice a week. Many people however, prefer more of a scrub. It really just depends on personal preference.

2) Make sure your skin is well hydrated.
So I highly recommend the use of hydrating serums, appropriate to your skin type.

3) Make sure you are using a very good sun protection product.
I would say at least an SPF 30, broad spectrum sun protection.

4) It is very important that you go for monthly deep cleansing treatments with a medical aesthetic therapist who has been trained to use a good cosmeceutical product range.

  1. Egg white also help to get rid of blackheads, apply it on your face and leave it on for about 15 mins. If that doesn’t work and you have oily skin you can always try nutmeg and milk

  2. I agree with the weekly exfoliation bit, it does make a huge difference.

    Great read.
