WHAT ARE BLACKHEADS?

To start, let’s take a look at what they actuallyare

Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. They are called “black heads” because the surface of the bump itself looks black. They form when a clog or plug develops in the opening of hair follicles in your skin.  

 

HOW CAN I GET RID OF BLACKHEADS?

Getting rid of blackheads involves a multi-pronged approach, using a few different beauty products. Try:  

 

1 DOUBLE CLEANSE

The Korean Double Cleanse method is a central part of theKorean Beauty Routine and is famous for several reasons:

  1. It’s great at getting rid of makeup and dirt that accumulates throughout the day.
  2. It guarantees clean skin, which is great for removing blackheads.

How do you do it? Simply grab anoil-based cleanser to use as your first “cleanse”, and follow up with afoaming cleanser afterwards.

Try Subi’s Bare Skin Balm and Brightening Powder Cleanser. 

 

2 EXFOLIATE

Exfoliators clear out dead skin and promote cell turnover, which is essential to prevent the blocked hair follicles that cause blackheads – justdon’t scrub too hard or too often – once or twice a week is plenty.  

 

3 USE A BHA

BHAs or Beta Hydroxy Acids work by “de-gunking” your pores. Since BHAs are oil soluble, they penetrate through the oil that’s clogging your pores and exfoliate all of the dead skin cells that have built up inside. BHAs also have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, help reshape your pores, and allow your other skincare products to better penetrate your skin.

Review for the podcast left on Facebook: I love the range of products and the podcast. Lauren explains everything in a easy way and she is always bringing good subjects to the table.

4 REGULAR CLAY MASKING

Clay works as a vacuum on the face, suctioning out blackheads, dirt and impurities. It can be used three ways:

1. As a spot treatment for acne

2. To remove blackheads (instead of strip masks)

3. As a full face mask 

 

5 AVOID HEAVY MOISTURISERS

Rich, thick moisturisers that are heavy on the oils are to be avoided to minimise blackheads. Instead, opt for something light but hydrating.
