Blackheads Treatment - Follow These Steps to Remove Blackheads

Blackheads form when dead skin cells, bacteria and sebum, the oil matter secreted by the skin, clog the surface of the skin -- the bacteria tarnishes with oxygen and makes it look like black dots and sometimes tend to stick out a little.

Our first impulse is usually to pick at blackheads, however, this is the worst thing we can do as it spreads bacteria and irritates the skin. Instead, we recommend exfoliating the area with a Glycolic Acid - Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Salicylic Acid (BHA) scrub to shed upper layers of the skin, and prevent pore-clogging. After this, use an acne lotion to help reduce acne bacteria levels, help diminish redness and prevent acne blackheads from forming.

Teenagers, "Never pick at blackheads!"
Although blackheads can crop up out of control between the ages of 15 and 25 due to acne vulgaris, the best way to counteract the eliminate them is by exfoliating the skin and using a prescription-grade acne lotion.
