How to Get Rid of Blackheads

When you’ve always had to cope with your excessively oily skin, it’s hard not to envy those who have flawless, blemish-free complexions.  Sure they must have been blessed with better genes but, it could also be that they’re just taking better care of their skin than you do.

The truth hurts.  But, then again, even if you have been doing everything by the book, it is in the nature of blemishes, blackheads included, to be unpredictably pesky.

What is causing your troubles with blackheads?

Arggh, plenty!  It is the combination of the genes you inherited, your wildly fluctuating hormones, stress, the food you eat, medications that you take, products that you use, even the dirt and dust around the environment where you live, work and play.  So, if you’re wondering how to get rid of blackheads once and for all, it takes tackling all of these — except the first factor which you can’t really do much about.

All of these factors come together to send your oil glands into overdrive, clog your skin and invite blemish causing bacteria to worsen an already bad situation for your skin.  Excess oils sitting on your pores eventually combine with oxygen which gives blackheads its dark, oxidized color.

Practicing good hygiene and keeping your face clean is a great start.  Stop touching your blackheads with your dirty fingers all the time!  Don’t poke and don’t squeeze.  Give your skin a refreshing cleanse but never more than thrice daily for your oily skin.  If you feel that it dries out your skin, cut back to twice only but not any less than that.

Practice good skincare habits that does not involve any harsh products that irritate your skin and block your pores.  For your oily, acne-prone skin, make sure that you have alpha hydroxy acids in your regimen.  Stay away from cream-based, oil-based and alcohol-based products as well which will only cause your skin to become even greasier.

5 Steps to clear your blackheads

If you have blackheads sitting on your nose, cheeks, chin and forehead right this instance, listed below are 5 simple steps on how to get rid of blackheads instantly:

Step 1: Fill a pot with water and set it to boil.

Step 2: Meanwhile, prepare a honey and milk mask.  Milk contains lactic acid that has natural antiseptic and exfoliating properties perfect for your acne-prone skin.  Together with honey, this mixture will purify your skin.  After mixing the two ingredients, drop rice paper in to soak.  Set aside.

Step 3:  Cleanse your skin with lukewarm water and a soap-free cleanser which does not contain ingredients that will block your pores. Pat dry.

Step 4:  Pour the boiling water into a large basin and place your face on top of it to catch the steam.  Let the steam lift away those blackheads and other impurities in your skin.  About 5 minutes into the process, take your facial brush and begin to slough off gently.  Rinse with lukewarm water then pat dry.

Step 5: Pick up the soaked rice paper and place it on your face.  Leave on for at least 15 minutes before peeling away.  Cleanse skin using a cotton soaked in lukewarm water.

Follow through with your daily serum and moisturizer.


Make this 5-step process part of your daily routine until you see significant improvements in your skin.  Remember, you need to rehash your lifestyle too if you want to see the improvements last.
