Tips and Tricks to get rid of blackheads

Posted May 04 2013 3:20pm

The skin of human body is full with countless pores, which contain oil (sebaceous) glands. These glands produce sebum, which help in lubricating the skin. You will find blackheads over your skin only when there is oil build up seen around the skin pores, which occurs only when the skin cells are dead and thus clog the area.

The dead cells and sebum debris found over the pores are seen undergoing an oxidative reaction, which result into the hyper pigmentation that you find in the form of dark colored blackhead. Generally the common causes to blackheads could be due to the factors like bad eating habits, poor hygiene and excessive makeup.

In fact, if you remain poor in cleanliness, it will certainly aggravate this condition and ignoring the blackheads could bring in issues of painful and unsightly acne spots. Though the blackheads could recur, yet it is very much possible to get away from this issue. These could be completely removed from your skin without any skin damage.

The following are some of the best tips and tricks to get rid of the blackheads. Let’s check them out:
