How To Clear Blackheads – Tips From A Trainee Dermatologist!
Article by Robert
I looked into the mirror the other day and what I could see was loads of blackheads on the nose area, I turned to my roommate who is lucky for me studying to eventually become a dermatologist and I asked how to get rid of blackheads on nose? The reply she gave me was not to worry about them as they were a lot less visible to other people as they were to me and that by using a few simple treatments I could easily get rid of them. After she gave me a speech on why I shouldn’t worry about this or that she did eventually tell me a few very good ways of clearing them. I wont go into details about most of what she said but I will tell you the important things she told me that was the treatments to use.
Tip 1 – Make sure to wash your face twice a day with an oil-free cleanser. Also wash your face whenever you feel it is becoming oily and/or dirty.But you also do not want to become paranoid and over wash the face as this will make things worse by aggravating the effected area and over drying the skin.
Tip 2 – Apply a clay mask over the face. This will help to absorb excess oil and clear dirt from within the pores. To apply a cay mask just add water to clay and mix until you get a paste consistency, once this has been achieved apply over the face and leave on for 30 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water.
Tip 3 – Use an exfoliating scrub very lightly over the skin. This will help to remove dead skin cells and keep the pores clean and clear. Make sure you do not massage the scrub to vigorously as this can damage the skin and be counter productive when trying to get rid of blackheads.
Tip 4 – Put hot water into a bowl, drape a towel over your head and lean over the bowl and leave the steam warm the face, if it is to uncomfortable move further back, stay over the bowl for 5 to 10 minutes. This will open the pores and you can then gently squeeze out the blackheads safely. If squeezing your blackheads out causes any pain at all you should stop what you are doing as you will be doing more bad than good and could even permanently scar your skin if your not careful.
These were the tips she gave me and she also said to eat a well balanced varied diet and to exercise on a regular basis for long term results.
