How to Get Rid of Blackheads

A blackhead is formed when the ducts produced by oil in the sebaceous gland gets clogged with dead skin cells.   There are many ways of removing blackheads.  However, not all are safe and effective but rather are harmful methods.  The skin has to be removed of excessive oiliness thus it has to be cleansed regularly.

One method of getting rid of blackheads is to make the skin pores open up.  The pores can be expanded by placing a hot towel over the face.  Another option is to steam the face by taking a bowl of hot water and covering your head along with the bowl with a towel or sheet.  The face will be held close to the bowl while bending over the bowl.  The pores of the skin will expand effectively which will get rick of blackheads.

Getting rid of blackheads is easy if you just follow the steps in removing these blackheads.

Blackheads vs. Whiteheads

The topic of acne is closely related with blackheads and whiteheads.  However, there is a great difference between blackheads and whiteheads.

Whiteheads and blackheads are together called as comedones.  A comedone is a sebaceous follicle that is plugged and filled with dead cells and sebum.  A blackhead is the open comedone that has a blackish appearance while a blocked comedone that has a small white colored bump on the skin is a whitehead.

It is not recommended that whiteheads and blackheads be squeezed as this will cause skin infection.  Permanent scarring can even occur.

One’s skin can be removed by excess dead skin by washing the face by lukewarm water and mild soap.  Whatever the dermatologist prescribes should be used on the face.  The skin should be treated mildly and not harshly.  One needs to be patient in acne treatment as being in a hurry can cause further harm and increase inflammation.
