How to Get Rid of Black Heads

beauty tipsBlackheads are identified by dermatologists as open comedones, which occur to hair follicles with a wider opening than the normal size. The pores are filled with dead skin cells, sebum (the oil produced by the sebaceous glands that protects skin and hair against dryness), and bacteria.

The black color is caused by the oxidation process of melanin, the skin pigment responsible for preventing the damages caused by UV radiations. Blackheads should not be confused with closed comedones, known as whiteheads, which usually appear on the neck, face, and chest as a result of skin secretions blockages that occur under the skin surface.

Professional treatment for blackheads

The main cause of blackheads occurrence is an increased level of hormones that determines a higher production of sebum. Both oil and dead cells remain stuck into pores creating a favorable medium for the development of bacteria. Another cause is related to using skin care products containing ingredients that reduce the water evaporation from skin, as well as the excess use of makeup products.

Top dermatologists recommend purchasing products based on substances like retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid that proved to be effective in preventing the appearance of blackheads (prevention is always an excellent strategy) and cleaning clogged pores.

A microdermabrasion session scheduled to an esthetician or dermatologist is a great way to take the benefits of an efficient exfoliating treatment. There are two types of technologies: the crystal microdermabrasion (uses aluminum oxide crystals) and the diamond-tip microdermabrasion, which is the newer and improved version of the first one. The latest trend in skin resurfacing is the HydraFacial treatment based on the usage of water and serums for removing dead cells and hydrating the skin.

Natural treatments with handy ingredients

Milk and nutmeg
