How to get rid of blackheads?

14th April 2013

Blackheads are pesky little marks that appear when our skin gets clogged up. Those little black or yellowish bumps appearing on the surface of the skin are caused by the blockage of the sebaceous glands found near the skins surface.

These glands excrete an oily substance known as sebum. Blackheads are said to be the first stage of acne and are usually triggered by hormonal changes and fluctuations, which can lead to an increase in sebum production.

Sounds nasty? Well, the good news is that getting rid of blackheads is easy and achievable through better skin hygiene practice and extraction methods. Here are a few simple tips on how to get rid of blackheads, the sk:n way! We recommend that you stay away from harsh facial cleansers, wear as little make-up as possible and change your pillowcase on a regular basis.
