3 Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads For Good

It's not as difficult as it seems

Acne is no fun and let’s face it — blackheads can be one of the most annoying types to get rid of. It can sometimes feel like no matter how many pore strips and face masks we use, those little black dots just don't go away!

As we always say, to tackle a skincare problem you need to understand what it is first. Blackheads are defined as "open comedones," because they form at the opening of your pores. When they become trapped with excess sebum or bad bacteria they become inflamed which causes the dreaded blackhead in the first place. The trapped dead skin and oil turn a dark black/grey color when exposed to oxygen which gives blackheads their signature appearance. Now that we're armed with the knowledge to understand blackheads — here are three easy ways to eliminate, shrink, and prevent them.

💛 Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize!

When our skin is dehydrated, our bodies try to make up for it by producing more natural oils, this is a big no-no when trying to get rid of blackheads. Choosing a lightweight moisturizer will restore your skin’s protective barrier and lock in hydration effectively stopping excess oil in its tracks. Our go-to is the Tofu Gel Cream. This gentle moisturizer is packed with nutrient-filled ingredients like prickly pear, tri-power cica complex (and of course tofu) to keep your skin hydrated and in balance at all times.

💛 Don't go to bed with makeup on

We’ve all been there before — you’re just so tired and the last thing you want to indulge in is your skincare routine. But trust us, your skin will thank you for doing it. When you don’t cleanse your skin you’re essentially trapping all of the day’s dirt, makeup, and grime and marinating with it overnight (gross!). As you can imagine, just one night can lead to clogged pores and you guessed it — blackheads.  

Ditch the makeup wipes that can strip your skin and instead, reach for an ultra-nourishing cleansing balm like the Rice Cleansing Sorbet. It’ll gently melt any traces of left-over makeup leaving you with a clean and moisturized canvas. This step is so important as stripping cleansers and wipes tend to rid your skin of all of its natural oils which can actually increase oil production leading to more acne and blackheads.

💛 Clear it out!

Notice a lot more blackheads than normal? Incorporating a detoxifying toner into your routine will help balance skin while clarifying your pores. Our Bitter Green Essence uses its 33 powerful veggie extracts including green tea to visibly shrink down pores helping to regulate oil production and eliminate blackheads for good!

We suggest pairing your go-to toner with an exfoliator that'll slough away any excess dead skin and sebum that are clogging your pores. The Tomato Serum uses its fruit enzymes to speed up cell turnover revealing brighter and clearer skin. This is one of the simplest and gentlest ways you can do to kick blackheads out the door!

LONG STORY SHORT

Treating stubborn blackheads is a journey with no clear timeline. But, consistency is always key. Sticking to a gentle, pore-clearing routine is the best way to clear your skin and say bye-bye to those blackheads!
