What are Blackheads

Blackheads are small bumps which might occur on your face and may look like tiny plugs. They are most likely to occur on oil face and  hence those with oily skin are more prone to suffer from the same.

Causes of Blackheads

  • There are a large number of factors responsible for occurrence of blackheads. Most common reason is the clogging of skin pores caused by excessive oil. The dead skin may block the pores of your skin resulting in blackheads.
  • One of the prime factors for blackheads is hormonal changes in the body. If there is hormonal imbalance, blackheads are likely to occur.
  • The next factor responsible for blackheads is the use of cheap or local makeup products or cosmetics which might cause irritation on your skin and may affect your skin tone in the long run.
  • Eating unhealthy and unprocessed food and not following a proper skin care routine too may lead to blackheads.

There are many ways in which you can remove the blackheads which tend to appear on your nose and face. Always cleanse your face as the first thing in the morning. You can even use a cotton ball for doing the same. This helps to remove the dead skin cells from the face. Once done, just pat your face dry with a soft towel. On the blackheads, just put a slightly warm compress for around 5-10 minutes, this will make your blackheads soft and thus easy to remove also. With your finger tip, gently apply pressure on the blackheads from both sides by pushing them down.

The next best way to get rid of blackheads is to use a toothpaste. You can simply apply toothpaste on the affected area and gently scrub it with the help of a toothbrush. But make sure you are not applying it close to your eyes because it might cause irritation to your eyes. But when you intend to use a toothbrush, you must always sterilize it before using. This method works for some but not for all.
