Blackhead Removal

How to remove blackheads…Are you sick and tired of blackheads on your nose and face?

Blackheads are not attractive and can make you feel less confident when you have them.

Blackheads are also very annoying because they never seem to disappear when you use any old product.

You must use the right products that contain effective blackhead removal ingredients and the right tools to help you gently remove and dislodge the blackheads; this is the only way your skin can be free from blackheads and acne.

How To Clear Blackheads

To effectively clear blackheads you need the right products and tools to get the job done.

Have faith! There are products that DO work and there are tools that WILL HELP you get clear skin.

You just need to get your hands on them!

We will go through products that Koreans (and many Western women) use.  As you may be aware Koreans have beautiful skin…even the men (look at Kpop to see what were talking about).

They know what works and what doesn’t.

Your skincare routine needs to address acne and blackhead removal and you must remember to be gentle with your skin.

First We Need To Cleanse

We recommend using a cleanser like Innisfree Blackhead Out Balm with a cleansing tool .

Blackhead Balm is applied to the face where you have blackheads – avoid the eyes and mouth.

It helps to lift blackheads and other impurities from your skin, especially the nose.

It contains Jeju volcanic clusters which absorbs the sebum while cleansing the pores and moisturizing the skin.

It is gently massaged in and then rinsed off.  it leaves skin feeling cleaner and less clogged without drying it out.

We recommend using the Blackhead Wash Cleaner.

Use A Blackhead Removal Tool

This is a very handy tool that looks similar to a toothbrush.

It is used to gently massage the blackhead area at one end and on the other is a simple extraction tool to dislodge debris from within the pores. 

Exfoliate with a BHA product

Use a product like COSRX Blackhead Power Cream to help remove dead skin cells and help to renew skin cell turnover.

This is an excellent gentle peeling cream that contains Butylene Glycol, Sunflower Seed Oil and Glycerin will also help to clear pores without drying out your skin. Use only affected areas.

Use a blackhead removal tool like COSRX Blackhead Silk Finger Ball

What Are Blackheads?

Dermatologists explain that blackheads are really a specific type of acne, triggered by sebum (otherwise known as face oil) production.

If a clogged pore “remains open to the air, the oils in the pores oxidize to a black color, which is why we called them ‘open’ comedones or blackheads.”

Blackheads Can Show Up Anywhere

Not all blackheads are on your nose.

You can get blackheads anywhere you can get a pimple; they’re just more common near the oiliest parts of your skin.

In fact, blackheads regularly show up on the chest and back too.

Blackheads are dependent on many different factors. A combination of the thickness of your sebum, the stickiness of skin scales, and how well both can move through the pore.

Oil and scale production amounts, and qualities vary from place to place on the skin and, in the same person, vary over time due to developmental and hormonal factors.
