How To Get Rid Of Unsightly Blackheads Fast

If you have oily or combination skin, chances are you may also have blackheads on the nose, chin and forehead. Blackheads are harmless and rarely cause problems, however, they can make the skin appear blemishes, which is why people dislike them.

Blackheads form in the skin pores, where skin’s natural oil and dead cells build up, making the pore look larger. The surface tips of clogging appear black because the blockage and the waxy oil is exposed to air, oxidizing it and causing it to turn a dark colour. Similar to what happens to an apple when you cut it in half and leave it out, the air causes the apple to turn a dark brown colour.

Tips For Getting Rid Of Blackheads At Home

To eliminate blackheads fast, you need to soften the skin and remove the blockage. The best way to soften the skin is to use steam. Steam in the shower is sufficient to soften your skin, but if you use Sothys Desquacrem while in the shower, it will help dissolve the clogged pores more efficiently. To use, after cleansing, apply a small amount of Desquacrem on blackheads, massage in and leave on for 3-5 minutes while in the shower. Rinse off and follow with a drawing mask. The Sothys absorbant mask is excellent at deep cleansing and drawing out the clogging. Repeat this 2-3 times per week and you will have clear pores in no time.

For stubborn clogged pores, try a course of microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion will gradually erode the clogging away, and refine the pores. It helps to rebalance the oil production in your skin, leaving your skin instantly brighter. A course of six treatment done once a week will potently rejuvenate your skin. Then a once a month maintenance treatment will help keep blackheads away. For best results, continue using the Desquacrem and absorbent mask at home to prevent the pores from clogging up again.
