Get Rid of Blackhead

Most of us which includes men are having blackhead problem nowadays especially at the nose area and we tend to ignore it thinking no one would notice it from far away. Imaging that on a perfect romantic date, everything went well, you and your date are about to kiss.

Suddenly she or he stop because they can’t help noticing the “obvious” blackhead on your nose and feel gross about it. NOW at this moment, you will definitely feel embarrass and blame yourself for not taking these blackhead seriously.

How does blackhead form? Well blackhead is a plug of sebum will clog at our skin pores and turn black when oxidized after leaving for quite some times. After a long period of time, blackhead can actually lead to pimples growth. According to the skin expert, blackhead is the first stage of acne/pimples forming before the bacteria occupy the pores of our skin. Therefore it’s important to clean out /remove out the blackhead before they develop to pimples. Some people think those blackheads are more common for those with oily skin. It’s true..But from my opinion, for the blackheads that grow on oily skin are sometimes easier to remove compare to dry skin. I myself is oily and combination skin. It’s easy for me to remove my blackheads that grow on my nose by simply using blackhead extractor. My sister even question me a lot of times asking me how I remove my blackhead. My husband has dry skin and he has a LOTS of blackhead on his nose and it’s very hard to remove even with extractor.

Below are a few methods that can be used to remove the blackhead on nose:

1) Remove the blackhead using a blackhead extractor. It’s encourage remove the blackhead after taking your warm bath or place slightly warm towel on your nose for approximately 5 – 10 min to soften the blackheads. DO NOT uses your hand directly to extract out the blackhead as it can cause infection and do remember to clean and disinfect your extractor after using.

2) Using Egg White as a natural ingredient. Some people can’t stand the smell of the egg white. You can try to add some honey and a bit of lemon juice to egg white that has been beaten foamy. Apply the ingredient to a small piece of normal oil control film paper and softly place the paper on your nose and press a little. After that wait for it to dry and slightly pull the paper from bottom up. Use both of your hand to hold each side of the paper while removing. Do this once a week.

Currently we have a lot of skin care product in market which can help to control or prevent blackhead or whitehead. Here’s a list of the suggested product that be used :

a) Shiseido The Skincare Purifying Mask - it’s a rise off facial mask that helps to absorb sebum and impurities while minimizing pores.

b) Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliator Cream – this exfoliator gently lifts of dead cells and deeply cleanses pores. It’s suitable for sensitive skin as well.

c) Clinique Pore Minimizer Refining Serum – it keeps pores clears of dead skin cells and help to tighten pore walls.
