HOW TO REMOVE BLACKHEADS AT HOME

Tuesday, 30 January 2018 12:35
Blackheads are the most common problem in the majority of people. This problem arises when the oily secretion of the sebaceous glands forms a blockage in your skin pores. When the oil is exposed to air, it oxidizes and turns into black and forms blackhead. So the question is that how you can remove blackheads from your skin.
 
Removing of blackheads from your skin is very simple and you can do this at home, all you need to do is remove the entire blockage from your skin pores.
 
In order to remove the blockage from your skin pores, you need the following material.
 
  1. Towel or soft cloth
  2. Blackhead removal strips or pads
  3. Salicylic acid (C7H6O3)
 
Step 1
 
Wash your skin with the slightly hot water, and gently compress your skin pores with the help of towel or soft cloth. The warmth will open the pores of your skin and make it easier to remove the blockage caused by secretion of the sebaceous glands and to get rid of blackheads. Follow this step upto 5 times.
 
Step 2
 
Apply a blackhead elimination strip or pad to your face while your skin pores are still moist from the compress done in step 1. The moisture to your pores and skin will help the blackhead removal strip cohere on your skin and blackheads. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for the blackhead removal strip to stick itself.
 
After 10 to 15 minutes, pull the strip off. It should remove the blockage and blackheads from your skin pores in a different level of success. But in some cases, it removes the entire blockage and blackheads; in other situations, only the head of the blockage is ripped from the pores of the skin.
 
Step 3
 
With the help of your fingertips, squeeze your skin gently to remove the blackheads from your skin. Note that fingernails should not be used for that purpose as it may harm your skin. If they do not pop out effortlessly, do not squeeze harder as it may harm your skin. Rather, try making use of warmth compress and squeezing another time straight away after removing the warm compress.
 
If the blackheads do not pop out by this method, they probably cannot be removed adequately with your fingers.
 
Step 4
 
Salicylic acid (C7H6O3) is a medication most commonly used for the skin treatment. It removes the outer layer of the skin and most commonly used for the treatment of calluses, dandruff, acne, ringworm, warts, psoriasis and ichthyosis.
 
Apply a thin layer of salicylic acid liquid or paste onto your skin and leave it for a minute. After the use of salicylic acid, do another hot compress and try to squeeze out the remaining extra blackheads.
 
MODE OF ACTION: When you apply the layer of salicylic acid liquid onto your skin, it breaks down the sebum oil and can get deep into your skin pores where your fingers cannot.
