The first place blackheads normally appear are on the nose, and from there they seem to spread and multiply out onto our forehead, chin and cheeks. They are most prevalent in our T-zone because this is where we have the greatest oil gland activity. So how do we keep our nose – and anywhere else for that matter – clean and clear of blackheads? It’s easy, but first let’s clarify what a blackhead is.
A blackhead is caused by a clog of congestion inside a follicle. The congestion is a mixture of oil (sebum), dead skin cells, tiny hairs, some debris and sometimes bacteria that all combine to make a plug. The surface of the plug, being open and in contact with the light and air, oxidizes and turns black. That’s why when you remove a blackhead, the top is black but the rest underneath is a creamy color. The follicle often contains an over-active oil gland stimulated by hormonal activity.
Keeping up on a good home skincare regimen is key to getting rid of blackheads 🤗 #skincaretips #skincarespecialist #facials #extractions #deepcleansingfacial #estheticianlife #blackheadsremoval #oilyskin #acnetreatments #flawlessskin
