Blackheads form when skin pores become blocked by sebum

  17 Maret 2024 08:00 - There are various facial skin problems that are quite disturbing to comfort and appearance. One of them is blackheads . This facial skin problem is usually characterized by the appearance of black or white spots appearing in several areas of the face. Apart from making your face dull, textured and uneven in color, blackheads can also be a precursor to the appearance of inflamed acne.

Blackheads form when skin pores become blocked by sebum (natural skin oil), dead skin cells, and dirt. There are several factors that influence the appearance of blackheads, starting from excessive production of oil or sebum, changes in the body's hormones, use of skin care products that clog pores, dead skin cells that accumulate, and nutritional imbalances in the body due to consuming fatty foods too often.

As a result, it is not uncommon for blackheads to accumulate around the surface of the facial skin. In the facial area, blackheads most often appear on the nose. The reason is, the nose is the T-zone area of the face which produces more sweat than other areas of the face, making it easier for pores to become blocked. If not cleaned immediately, clogged pores will turn into blackheads.

To overcome the problem of blackheads, you can do various things, such as keeping your skin clean by washing your face regularly, avoiding products that can clog pores, and maintaining a balanced diet are effective steps. Not only that, you can also use various skincare products and use natural ingredients.

One of the skincare products commonly used to treat blackheads is pore pack . Pore pack itself is skincare that is specially formulated to effectively remove dirt that clogs pores. But unfortunately, not everyone is suitable for using pore packs to care for their face. The reason is that pore packs contain chemicals which often can actually irritate the skin.

Another solution, you can use natural ingredients. As shared by one beauty enthusiast via his personal TikTok account with the account name @lifewjan on March 10 2024, which contains beauty enthusiast tricks for cleaning blackheads on the nose using 2 sweeteners.
