How do I get rid of my blackheads?

11th December 2013

Our skin consists of pores, which are open and empty and are frequently filled with sweat and dirt. These are referred to as blackheads, which usually appear around the skin area where skin is thin like the nose area. These can multiply, become visible and embarrassing so it's worth knowing various useful blackhead removal techniques to keep our skin looking radiant.

Methods of overcoming your blackheads:

Honey and cinnamon

Honey is a natural antibiotic and helps pull out dirt and sweat from your open pores, causing your blackheads. Mix a tablespoon of honey with ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon and use your fingers to wipe it onto your skin. Rub this mixture in a circular motion for three minutes and then wash off with warm water.

Baking soda

Baking soda is not only used as a natural cleanser, it can also help exfoliate skin by clearing away dead skin cells. All you have to do is use baking soda and a bit of water to create a paste and then gently scrub this mixture over your whole face especially where your blackheads are present.

Chemical skin peels

By using gentle yet effective acidic chemicals, the top layers of skin cells are removed to reveal flawless and blackhead-free skin. These can be carried out by professionals at a popular skin laser clinic such as sk:n clinics.


Alternatively if you want to try something different to your usual chemical skin peels, then why not consider

starting microdermabrasion sessions from a qualified specialist.

Microdermabrasion literally lifts blackheads out of your facial pores by blasting your skin with hundreds of tiny, smooth micro crystals. This process is painless, and you will notice great results after just one treatment. Millions of clients at sk:n clinics have gone ahead with this treatment for their blackheads, perhaps you should see what they can do for you by visiting a sk:n clinic near you.

Never pick or pop your blackheads

Avoid picking your blackheads at any time, as this will add more dirt and bacteria to your pores and worsen the problem.
