Blackheads appear when there is accumulation of dirt and dust in the pores along with increase in oil levels. So the primary aim would be cleaning of pores rather than treating symptomatically. Here are few tips to get rid of black heads at home:
1)Open The Pores
This is the key. No picking, no scratching, no squeezing. Using a warm towel on your face, open the pores around the nose and any area of your skin which is affected. Blackheads are caused by a build up of oil and grime in the pores - to remove blackheads, we first need to get access to the root of the problem. When you perspire, your pores open, so the warmer the towel, the quicker your pores will open.
2)Remove The Blackheads
Using an adhesive strip (available at all good chemists, pharmacies and shops), you can now literally lift out the blackhead. Place the adhesive strip on the affected area, leave for a few moments and then careful lift. You can see the evidence on the back of the strip. Hopefully it will be covered in blackheads that you've successfully removed.
Exfoliating will remove dead skin and stubborn dirt. Dead skin blocks the pores, blocked pores lead to blackheads - you can work out why this is very important. Use an exfoliating scrub or course flannel.
Once you've got rid of your blackheads, you'll want to keep them away. Do this by introducing a regular cleansing routine. You don't need harsh cleansers, but you do need to cleanse gently on a regular basis. Try to use an all natural cleanser and absolutely avoid at all costs anything that contains alcohol and moisturiser. Alcohol will dry out the skin too much and moisturiser on an already oily part of your skin is a very bad idea.
Minor changes in lifestyle should be sufficient to ensure that you never suffer from or need to remove blackheads again.
Drink plenty of water
Avoid excess sugar
Take a steam at least once a month to open the pores
Have one day a month to detox (drink as much water as you can, eat raw veg, avoid coffee, alcohol, sugar and dairy)
Be disciplined with your cleansing regime. Regular (twice a day) gentle cleansing sessions, gentle exfoliation are essential.
