Blackheads – we all get them and we all hate them. We even hate the name! Keeping a clear face everyday, without waking up to blemishes, can be tricky. So it’s time to keep calm, take control and off with their heads!
How To Win The Battle
Before you begin there are three rules you must remember when it comes to attacking blackheads:
1. Never squeeze those dots!
As tempting as it may be, try to avoid squeezing. In fact, some research shows squeezing blackheads may actually make more of them. Also touching that area means you will be spreading the oil and and bacteria further. So, hands off!
2. Use a Blackhead Clearing Scrub everyday.
We love the CLEAN & CLEAR Advantage Blackhead Clearing Scrub RRP $10.99 which comes armed with exfoliating micro-beads that break down trapped oil and dead skin cells to unclog your pores. The blackhead-fighting ingredient works deep into pores, helping to prevent more of those ugly dots forming.
3. Keep it natural.
Heavy make-up can sometimes make your blackheads worse – it makes it easier for oil and other impurities to get trapped in your pores. Try using lightweight make-up that is water-based and non- comedogenic, that won’t block your pores.
