Blackheads are like pests—just when you get rid of one, you see five more take its place. If you want to learn how to get rid of blackheads, you’re going to have to do more than take them on one by one. You need a regimen and the tools to get the job done and keep them from returning.
But first, we need to know what blackheads actually are before we can clear them up.
What Are Blackheads?
Contrary to what most people think, blackheads aren’t a buildup of dirt clogging your pores. Blackheads are actually an oxidized mixture of your body’s natural oils and dead skin cells. Just because you have blackheads doesn’t mean that you’re dirtier than other people. I say this because some people get so frustrated with their blackheads that they’re really rough on their skin when trying to get rid of them.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and contributes to youthful looking skin. As we age, our natural supply of hyaluronic depletes, so products containing it can help bring back smooth skin and even skin tones. But it can also help with blackheads. How? It helps to moisturize the skin so that dead skin doesn’t get trapped in the pores. Our Luminous serum contains hyaluronic acid, so you don’t have to worry about blackheads anymore. You can find it here.
If you’re trying to figure out how to get rid of blackheads, exfoliation is a key component of an effective regimen. Because blackheads are formed from dead skin cells and oil, getting rid of the dead skin before it gets trapped in the pores can stop the process in its tracks. You can try manual exfoliation, but consider using an electronic scrub brush like the one you can find in our store here.
Like hyaluronic acid, kojic acid has an anti-aging effect on the skin. But it also has some antimicrobial properties, which can help to fight off a few different strains of bacteria found on the skin that can cause acne and blackheads. That’s why we include it in both our Luminous Serum and our Beauty Cream.
Along with exfoliation, you should cleanse your skin daily. Cleansing washes away both dead skin cells and any oils that are clogging your pores. All you have to do is take your soap or cleanser of choice, apply it to any problem areas, scrub (don’t scrub too hard!) and rinse. Be sure to choose a cleanser that isn’t too harsh, like the choices we offer here, here, here, and here.
