Blackheads-Get rid of them

These are visible as black dots on the skin surface. These occur when there is an increased activity of the sebaceous glands and an accumulation of oil, dirt and dead cells in the pores. Mostly, people with oily skin have them. These are mostly found on the face, nose, chin and forehead. You should never pick them up as this sometimes results in infection and even permanent marks. Although obstinate and persistent, they usually respond to treatment and can be removed. Treatment advised is deep cleansing, steaming, extraction, mask & avoiding faulty food.

Steam your faceThis is done by keeping your face over a bowl of hot water, and covering your whole head with a thick towel (the bowl should also be covered by the towel). This is a great way to clean out pores and loosen blackheads.
Loosen them1. Saturate a cotton ball with surgical spirit of eau-de cologne and dab on the blackheads. This will loosen them.
2. Combine equal parts baking soda and water in your hand and rub gently on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This will also loosen them.
Extracting the blackheads
After loosening them, you have to extract them.
1. A metal blackhead remover is available at a chemist’s shop. You may use it to squeeze out the blackheads. Do it gently. If you feel you cannot use it properly, then have it done under the competent hands of a beautician; otherwise you will do more harm than good to your skin.
2. Blackhead removal strips are also available in the market. You have to just place the strip on your nose where the blackheads are prominent and pull it off, akin to waxing.
Suitable face packs & creams1. Glycolic acid creams have also been found effective in the treatment of blackheads. It helps in skin peeling, effectively unclogging the pores and smoothening the skin surface.
2. Apply astringent lotion daily if your skin with a tendency towards blackheads
3. A deep cleansing mask like a clay mask is also helpful. Mix 2 tbsp. of fuller earth (multani mitti) with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of milk and rose water to make a paste and apply over the face. Leave it on for 10 minutes, and then wash off. This pack helps to bleach the skin, as well as keep the pores tight.
4. Mix equal parts of lime juice, almond oil and glycerin and apply to the face.
5. Beat an egg white until stiff. Add one-tablespoon of honey and then apply to area with a cotton swab. Leave for half an hour and then rinse with warm water.
Suitable dietInclude more fresh fruits and green vegetables in your diet and avoid fatty and junk food.

    I have tried the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. They do work right then and there, but of course as the week progresses, you’ll have dirt build up in your pores and the blackheads return. You would have to use the pore strips once a week if your blackheads are really abundant or just use it whenever you see a lot of blackheads.

    blackheads will always be present particularly if one has oily skin.
    You should use oil-free products and keep your skin as clean as possible, cleanse your skin everyday and use an exfoliant and a mask once or twice a week (depends on that particular product).
    Before blackheads extraction you should allow your pores to open (by putting your face close to steam, not too close though).... and then use tissues and try to get them out.

    scrub your face with an electric toothbrush.. it honestly works, or at least it has for me.. it cleans out your pores very well and removes dead skin..

    and using a mineral based make up would probably help a lot.. i use bare minerals.. it's expensive but it's amazing and very good for your skin..
    you'll probably never get rid of them all.. but i really think the toothbrush will help.. and hey it doesn't hurt to try right?

  42. Blackheads are the pores partially covered by excess oil, dead cells and bacteria. The pus inside gets oxidized and thus giving it a black color. These blackheads take longer time to heal than a whitehead. Do not pop blackheads as it will aggravate the problem.
    Mix a pinch of turmeric powder in one tablespoon of coriander juice and apply on the washed face every night. The remedy is effective for blackheads and pimples.

    Leave it for a week or two without touching it and i should be easier to squeeze. the worst thing to do is to get blackhead strips thought. the kind of blackhead you have described doses not sound like it will budge anyway. and strips just take away layer of healthy skin. and then you are more likely to get another blackhead in the same place, because bacteria will get in

  44. Anonymous9:47 AM

    thry the blackhead strips. if you dont have much black head than you can make a strip yourself. look it up online it really helps! good luck!
    p.s. if that doesn't work than try putting a pot of water on the stove. once it starts to boil put one or two green tea leafs in. The green tea is good for the skin. now take a towl and put it around the back or your head. Hold your head so the steam can open your pores. be very careful. it will be hot. and sont burn your house down!

    Steaming did nothing for me. Here's what worked. It sounds crazy, but just try it for 2 or 3 days and you'll be amazed at the difference. Make a mask of 3 parts castor oil and 1 part olive oil. Massage into face and leave on for 20 min. Then wipe off with a warm washcloth until oil is gone. You can use your regular face wash afterwards if it still feels greasy. Somehow this dissolves all the blackheads and doesn't make you break out.

  49. Anonymous8:34 AM

    Method 1
    Use creams containing AHA's (Alpha Hydroxyl Fruit acids) like glyco-creams that will clear away any dead skin cells and "expose" the blackhead. Use the AHA's every 3 days or so.
    Method 2
    Make a lotion with equal parts of lime juice, almond oil and glycerine and apply on the face. It not only cures blackheads but the discoloring spots on the face too.
    Method 3
    Warm a little honey and apply on the trouble spots.
    Wash off after 10-15 minutes.
    Method 4
    Beat an egg white stiff.
    Add 1 tsp honey.
    With a cotton swab apply on the face and leave for half an hour.
    Rinse with warm water and pat it dry.
    Method 5
    Rinse your face with hot water to open your pores.
    Generously saturate a section of washcloth with olive or almond oil.
    Place a dab of toothpaste (not the gel kind) on the oily washcloth.
    Gently and thoroughly rub the toothpaste over your nose with the oily cloth. Do it twice if you have a lot of blackheads.
    Massage it into your whole face if you like. Add more oil or toothpaste as necessary.
    Wait about 5 minutes, then rinse your face thoroughly with hot water and a clean washcloth.
    Splash your face with cold water (preferable iced) to close the pores. Pat dry with a clean towel.

    Violent squeezing must not be used, because it always leads to the formation of little painful boils Never use your fingernails as they can carry dirt and can cause further infection
    Never prick the pimples, because doing so infects the surrounding area and leaves the scar behind which usually results in dark or red spots.

    The first step in removing blackheads is by stopping to use any oil based cream or cosmetic or treatment. Also one must not use any abrasive or harsh soaps or wash clothes as this will only aggravate the blackheads. Cover the face each night for 15 to 20 minutes and it would be better if the wash cloth is boiled first as this will remove any bacteria from affecting the skin. To remove those blackheads use a benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid which most people are now familiar with. Don’t go for any acne removal or cure that has less then 2.5% benzyl peroxide in it.
    There is the blackhead remover that does remove those stubborn blackheads and one can buy a blackhead remover and use it at home to remove blackheads. A circular pad puts pressure around the blackhead and forces the blackhead out of the skin. One should buy a steel blackhead remover as they can be sterilized and one does not need any bacteria to infect a blackhead.

  68. Ananya4:39 PM

    Blackheads are usually related to oily skin. You should wash your face really good twice a day with good cleanser, like any "Kiss the Face" foaming soap. The blackheads form in your pores of the skin, and you must use an astringent to close the pores after washing so that blackheads can't form in there. Worse case scenario, you have to squeeze them out with your fingertips, then treat the area with some acne astringent. I used to get them sometimes around my nose area, and I found out the more I washed my face and used a cleansing facial toner after to dry the area out the less I had oily skin and no more blackheads.

    Don't squeeze blackheads or spots. Bathe things like that with hot water (not too hot of course) and then put an antiseptic spot cream on the blemish after drying. There are so many germs on your fingers, for example, that you can give yourself a lovely skin infection if you keep tampering with blemishes. The spot you have burst should be bathed, dried and then have an antiseptic lotion or cream put on it. That "cheesy" stuff is pus, because you have an infected spot now. Then don't be tempted to mess around with it, just leave it to heal. If you have blackheads reappearing, try using a good facial scrub regularly.

  75. put some hot water onto a tissue and slowly put onto your spot, it will hurt first but as you slowly squeeze the tissue it will get warmer then your spot will go down.
    another i used to do was borrow my dads after shave, it stang but it worked better than anything else that i had tried. don't try it tho if its not your thing.

  76. Ranjana9:48 AM

    Whenever you remove blackheads, your pores open up. Make sure to clean your face with toner after removal. Thereafter, wet a towel with icy cold water and put it on your face. Finally, apply a pore tightening face mask. This will make sure your pores don’t remain open. Never ever remove blackheads by pinching or squeezing. It might irritate your skin and lead to scars.

  77. Mayuri9:49 AM

    Avoid touching your face as much as you can, especially after removing the blackheads. Do not use facial scrub if you have acne. It can aggravate and spread the condition.
    Before removing your blackheads, through any of the three methods, be sure that you skin is clean and free of moisturizers and creams.

    They actually sell blackhead extractors at most drugstores. They usually run about $6-$10 . I have one, and they work pretty well. Plus it is much cheaper than getting it professionally done.

    Pore Strips, Blackhead mask-

  91. I recommend doing your regular face cleaning routine and buying blackhead strips at walmart. A pack shouldn't be more than 20 bucks and even if it did it would be totaly worth it.

    Use a garlic oatmeal scrub for black (and white) heads. It’s a great remedy.

    Take equal amount of lime juice and rose water, mix both, apply on your face, keep it for 15 minutes and wash off.

    Apply undiluted lemon juice 2 to 3 times a day.

    Warm little honey, apply it on the blackheads and wash off after 10 to 15 minutes.

    Make a homemade scrubber by soaking rice in the milk for 4 hours, grind them and make a paste. Use this paste on your body as a scrubber to remove the black heads but do not rub it too hard on the skin. You should use it in mild circulations.

  97. Honey is a soothing skin treatment and a natural moisturizer. Many people find that it is very effective when used in a natural skin regimen that is aimed at removing blackheads and improving the texture and look of the skin. You can use ¼ cup of honey each night as a facial mask. Wash your face, and then apply the honey evenly to the surface of your skin. Leave in place for 20 minutes and then wash your face thoroughly with warm water.

  98. Natural and herbal treatments have been very effective for many people. Consistency of use and early treatments are the key steps needed for the results that you want

    For blackheads, try to exfoliate. It'll eventually go away, so don't pick at it or you're gonna cause scarring which may be permanent.

    The perfect solution is to cleanse your face, then apply lemon juice for 5 min and then rinse. After rinsing, place a hot towel on your face. This will actually bring everything to a head without the pressure of you squeezing it!

    If blackheads are your worry, mix a few drop of honey with the juice of half a lemon and apply directly to the area where you have blackheads. Let it sit for five to 10 minutes and rinse off with cool water.
