Tips for Getting Rid of Blackheads

Makeup – Low quality skin care products and cosmetics can be one of the main reasons of the development of the blackheads. So, avoid using any low quality cosmetic products. If you have a problem with greasy skin, use as few products as possible.How to Get Rid of Blackheads
Hormones – Hormones can increase oil production in the skin. Many teenagers and pregnant women suffer blackheads and pimples due to the hormonal changes. In this case the best thing to do is to do nothing; it will be cured during some period, as it depends on time.
Humidity – It actually has a lot to do with the development of blackheads. Humidity leads to constant sweating and more oil production, which in their turn cause blackheads. We advise using oil-absorbing papers. You can also opt for gentle facial masks (clay mask, for instance).
Healthy eating and lots of water – In order to have a healthy skin you should drink more water (8 cups a day) and eat more green veggies instead of lots of greasy crap. We recommend eating chicken breasts, cottage cheese, brown rice, sweet potatoes, yams, etc. Avoid using products with excess sugars and starches.
Don’t squeeze! One of the things that we strongly recommend is not to touch your face, as you may transfer the disease and the oil from one part of your face to another with hands. Surely you won’t make it better, at least don’t make it worse and damage your skin.
There are also a number of blackhead home remedies. Let’s mention some of them:
1. Spice Mix, Lemon Juice, Honey (be sure the honey is not too hot if you decide to try that method), Tea Tree Oil.
2. Use face scrub, which removes bacteria from your skin.
3. Pat instead of scrubbing, it irritates the skin.
4. Put a warm towel on your face (five minutes).
5. Change your pillowcase regularly.

Last but not least, keep in mind that skin types differ and what works well for your friend, might not have any effect on you. Every type of skin responds differently, so you should choose the best treatment for you. Finally you should be quite reasonable to understand that there isn’t any magical cure that will rid yourself of them forever. You just should take good care of your skin and it will certainly help you greatly.
