How to Prevent and Get Rid of Blackheads

What are Blackheads?

Blackheads are blemishes that form on the skin due to a build-up of excess oil, dead skin, and bacteria. While they are not dangerous, they can be unsightly and embarrassing, not to mention annoying. There are several ways to prevent blackheads from forming on your face and here are some of things you can do to minimise the risk.

  • Cleanse twice a day to avoid product build up

  • You should cleanse your face twice daily, morning and night. This will help to keep your pores clear of dirt and oil. Cleaning your skin regularly will also help to prevent blackheads from forming. 

  • Exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin

  • Exfoliating the skin is one of the best ways to prevent blackheads. This removes dead skin cells and other impurities from the surface of the skin, allowing new ones to rise to the surface instead. Exfoliating also helps to prevent dirt and oil from building up in your pores. Why not give our Exfoliating and Detoxifying Cleanser a try.

  • Wash your sheets and pillows regularly

  • Make sure you wash your sheets and pillowcases frequently so that any bacteria on them does not transfer onto your face when you sleep at night. You should also make sure you wash any towels you use regularly as well as any other linen items such as pillowcases or towels that may have come into contact with bacteria from someone else's face if possible. Aim to change them at least once a week.
