Blackheads are the worst. They are persistent little buggers, because no matter how much we poke pinch and squeeze at them, they never seem to disappear. As it turns out, there are a few things that you may not know about these little devils that could help you treat them and prevent them from showing their ugly little faces:

  1. What blackheads actually are: Blackheads are open comedomes that are really just widened hair follicles that are filled with bacteria, skin debris, and sebum oil. Ew.34772427
  2. What is causing them?: Blackheads are generally caused by the overproduction of oil, so all of my oily skinned Insider should gear towards oil-free makeup and lotions to be on the safe side.
  3. What is a DIY blackhead treatment? There are plenty of cheap blackhead busting DIYs out there, and I have written about a few! Here is a quick one: mix some baking soda with apple cider vinegar to create a paste and gently scrub the blackheads away.
  4. Don’t wash your face too much: Sounds a little weird, right? Washing your face is great, but try not to go overboard. Cleanse your face once or twice a week, but no more than that because your face can dry out and become irritated.

So, did you learn any more about those pesky black heads? Hopefully you can use this info to help prevent and treat your blackheads!

Banish Blackheads

            Have you ever looked into a magnifying mirror and noticed how big your pores are?  Unfortunately, people with big pores are more prone to black heads.  Black heads are pesky and can be tough to get rid of.  You can pick and squeeze them as much as you want, but they’re still there!  They seem to never go away!  Luckily by following this 5-step system, you can banish black heads for good.

            Start by taking a really hot shower which will open up pores.  As soon as you get out of the shower, start extracting the black heads by squeezing as many as possible.  It’s important to get all the dirt out.  Next, apply a thick moisturizer all over your face to hydrate and lock the heat from the shower in.  Apply plastic wrap to the worst areas, like your nose for example, and place a hot towel on top of the plastic wrap for a few seconds.  Last, wrap tissue around each pointer finger before squeezing the last of the blackheads out.  This will reduce fingernail marks and skin creases.  Apply a toner over the area to reduce oil buildup and you’re done! 

            Reducing blackheads takes time, but if you do this quick process when you start noticing them, they should eventually banish for good! 

Love,
