Firstly, 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.
Getting rid of blackheads involves a multi-pronged approach, using a few different beauty products. Try:
The Korean Double Cleanse method is a central part of theKorean Beauty Routine and is famous for several reasons:
Try Subi’s Bare Skin Balm and Brightening Powder Cleanser.
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.
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.
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
Rich, thick moisturisers that are heavy on the oils are to be avoided to minimise blackheads. Instead, opt for something light but hydrating.
COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid – this is a powerfulBHA skin treatment that is designed to prevent the formation of blemishes before they even occur. It is an oil-soluble chemical exfoliant that clears dead skin cells from deep within pores to minimise their appearance and prevent breakouts.
Subi Holo Dream Brightening Pore Refining Mask -Gliding on smooth and luminous, it not only deeply cleanses and tightens the pores, it also cares for the congestion and dead skin that contibute to breakouts.
Your skin is left with a subtle glow up that provides a great base for makeup or the rest of your skincare.
