If you understand what exactly cause blackhead, then you are able to treat this nasty thing and make sure that they will never come back.
Actually, pimples that don’t form into whitehead are known as blackheads, this is because when the pores become infected and clogged, the pores are too big to form a protective layer. This clogged material acts as a cork. This cork block the pores, when too much sebum is being produced, they cannot reach the surface of the skin. Naturally, sebum is produced to keep your skin and hair moisturized. On the other word, your skin would dry up without sebum. And if this cork blocks the pores, sebum cannot find their way to the surface of the skin; as a result, the clogged area is filled with bacteria and the trapped oil. When this hair follicle or pores are getting bigger, the protective layer of skin is unable to form. The top level of this material, along with bacteria and dirt are exposed to the environment, oxidized and turns black, that’s why we call this as blackhead.
Blackheads are the most common skin disease faced by people all over the world. Blackheads are also known as open commedone which appears on the shoulder, face or nose.
Now you can see what you should do in preventing and eliminating blackhead. Reducing the amount of sebum that is produced and keeping your pores unclogged and healthy are two fundamental things you should consider and focus, certainly this requires some discipline.
For instance, you need to change your behavior and your diet. Avoid consuming oily food or junk food. These foods will trigger your body to produce more oil.
Washing your face too often is not good for your skin. Many people think that washing their face too often could help to clear their face, but, on the other hand, this activity could dry up your skin, and your body tries to protect by producing more sebum oil. And as you can see, this is just worsening the problem. Your face is producing more sebum.
You can get rid of blackhead without having to spend much money to buy products that don’t work.
