Since the advent of the internet, people have become more conscious of their looks. Every day our social media platforms remind us that beauty, though skin deep, does matter. The fewer blemishes a person has the more likable they are. Yes. I know it sounds vain, but this is the culture in which we live. If your face is your brand you must take extra care to protect your brand. Recurrent blackheads is a common skin condition that affects your skin and consequently your brand. The good news is there is an effective solution to banishing blackheads safely, effectively and permanently.
Before I share the good news about banishing blackheads permanently,
allow me to eliminate some of your anxiety by breaking down the factors that create the perfect environment for blackheads.
What is a blackhead and how are they formed?
Without getting too technical, all of the hair follicles in our body are have a sebaceous gland. The role of the sebaceous gland is to produce oil to protect the skin. This oil is known as sebum. When too much sebum is produced, our pores can become clogged with this excess oil and dead skin creating an environment for the growth of bacteria.
If the bacteria-filled pore is exposed to air oxidation occurs resulting in a blackhead, which is often on the nose. A poor diet and free radicals can also lead to the appearance of blackheads.
One Size Does Not Fit All
Although blackheads are common in all people groups, the treatment of blackheads is not consistent for everyone. Over the counter products that may work on the Caucasian skin may perform adversely on ethnic skin. Some of the commonly used methods for removing
blackheads usually result in a domino effect creating other skin problems such as allergies and breakouts. Why? Simply stated, many drugstore products are filled with harsh chemicals that dry the skin, and causing flaking, which can actually increase oil production compounding the problem. Sounds like a vicious cycle, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be—the cycle can end today as you begin to arm yourself with new information to heal your skin from the inside out. Just as the hues of our skin is different, the care required to maintain and heal our skin is different.
