You’ve had blackheads for as long as you can remember and you can’t seem to get rid of it.
‘Remedies’ like baking soda, pore strips, and suction devices are way too harsh for the skin. There is also the chance of breaking the blood capillaries in the skin which leads to spider veins & scarring.
How to get rid of blackheads? Here are a few natural ways of removing & preventing blackheads from forming.
Why Do I Have So Many Blackheads? What Causes Blackheads
Your pores are the openings in the skin that connects your sebaceous glands, hair follicles. When the pore gets clogged with debris like dead skin, oil, and pollution, it turns into a blackhead.
Blackheads are especially common with oily skin types. Blackheads also regularly appear in our younger years or throughout your menstrual cycle due to the increased rate of oil production.
Older people are also vulnerable to it due to the cumulative photodamage from prolonged exposure to the sun over the years. This causes the pores to be more dilated, causing blackheads to be more noticeable.
Makeup is also a contributing factor due to the buildup that can mix with the dead skin cells & clog up the pores.
How To Prevent Blackheads Naturally
1. Use a Facial Cleanser
Having a skincare routine that actively cleans deep into your pores & leaves your skin protected is the first step. Ideally, you’d want to be washing your face at least twice a day; once in the morning and once more before going to bed.
Bacteria collect and build upon your skin and in your clogged pores as you sleep at night so you should be washing your face in the morning and prime it for the day ahead. While at the end of the day, you’ll be cleansing away all of the dirt, oil, makeup, and pollutants from your daily routine.
2. Stay Away from Harmful Ingredients
If you have a sensitive skin type, you may be a little cautious with cleansing your face as traditional cleaners are known to dry your skin out & leave it irritated.
However, this is usually only the case with cleansers made from harsh ingredients like sulfates, alcohols, parabens, and other chemicals. We recommend going for cleansers that are derived from natural non comedogenic ingredients like the WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash.
Another benefit of using products made with potent bioactives like Apple Cider Vinegar and Aloe Vera Extract is the nourishing element. Your skin benefits greatly from the rich nutrient content of these ingredients like improving your skin’s cell regeneration ability.
3. Exfoliate Your Skin
If you regularly deal with Blackheads, it would be a good idea to add an exfoliating element to your daily skincare routine. One of the top causes of blackheads is the clogging up of excess dead skin cells, dirt & bacteria.
Your skin regularly sheds itself and when it isn’t exfoliated regularly, causing an accumulation of excess dead skin cells and a bacterial build-up.
The WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Foaming Face Wash comes with a built-in brush with soft silicone bristles made specifically for the facial skin. If you could have just one item in your entire skincare arsenal, this would be on the top of our list!
