How To Get Rid Of Blackheads Fast (On Nose, Chin & Ears)
The blackhead. So tiny yet so very detrimental to the appearance of good skin. Blackheads appear because of a variety of factors, including age, skin hygiene, and stress. Blackheads are commonly caused by a buildup of skin cells Makeup and other debris in the pores of the face, primarily in the t-zone. These can show up most commonly on your nose, chin, ears, back and other parts of the body.
This debris is trapped under the oils produced by the face, and they oxidize turning black. This gives the blackhead Signature appearance. They are easy to get, but tricky to get rid of. Fortunately, recent studies have given us effective methods to get rid of blackheads quickly and painlessly.
Here are five simple steps to get rid of blackheads on your nose, chin, ears quickly and effectively:
Keep Your Face Clean!
A face clean of dead skin cells and debris is less likely to develop blackheads. This doesn’t mean that you should scrub your face vigorously multiple times a day. Dermatologists recommend that you wash your face with mild soap twice a day at the most.
It is important not to over wash your face as this can stimulate the production of sebum, or the facial oil that can cause blackheads to appear. Make sure that you also thoroughly clean your face after wearing makeup, so as not to wear any to bed. This can cause makeup particles to seep into your pores, clogging them further.
Most Cleansers on the market today are very harsh. However you can find more natural alternative at farmer’s markets, organic boutiques and made by large natural skin product companies like LUSH.
Exfoliation should be an important part of any beauty regime. It promotes new cell growth, clears away dirt and debris, and helps stimulate collagen build up to prevent the appearance of premature age lines.
With regards to blackheads, It helps keep clogged pores open wide so that oxygen can get into the deeper parts of the pore, eliminating the safe environment for bacteria to thrive. Many over-the-counter scrubs are considered too harsh by dermatological standards to be effective for weekly use. You can create your own mild scrubbing agents by using at-home ingredients.
For instance, you can choose any coarse powdered substance in your kitchen pantry to create the base for a good scrub. Sugar, Cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, even baking powder are all considered great scrubbing agents that have benefits for your skin. Add a lubricating ingredient to the coarse scrubbing ingredient like olive oil, milk, buttermilk, or coconut oil and you have a complete facial scrub.
Be sure to apply your scrub to a clean face in circular motions, being careful not to damage your skin.
Keep Your Pillow Case Fresh
The last thing you want after making sure that your face is clean and exfoliated is to put it on a dirty pillow at night. By changing out your pillowcase weekly, you can keep blackheads at bay because you will be eliminating leftover dead skin cells and facial oils that accumulate on your pillowcase.
There is a reason that facials are so effective. Aside from employing creams with scrubs and active enzymes, facial procedures use a method of steam cleaning. Applying steam to the face gently and gradually allows the pores to open, making them easier to unclog.
It also allows the skin to take in hydration, which can reduce the skin’s natural response to produce oil when dehydrated.
Can’t afford a fancy facial? User your shower to turn your bathroom into a steamy paradise. Make sure to stay in the stream for at least ten minutes for maximum results.
The natural response to an abundance of blackheads for many people is to immediately take their fingers and begins squishing their skin, squeezing and forcing the debris and bacteria out of the pores until the blackheads disappear. In reality, this is probably the most counter-intuitive thing you can do because it can damage your facial tissue.
Squeezing blackheads can deposit germs from your fingers into the pores of your face, creating an even more contaminated environment in your skin. When this happens, more than blackheads can emerge. Plus you may also experience sores, whiteheads, or even painful sebaceous cysts underneath the skin. These can all result from manually squeezing blackheads.
No matter what kind of acne you are experiencing, squeezing is never the answer. You now have some great resources at your disposal to get rid of blackhead troubles without ever resorting to squeezing.
If your skin must be manually manipulated to eliminate blackheads or other acne, make sure you have a dermatologist do it. This is the only way to ensure that you do not get a skin infection.
