Bulbous. Painful. Poppable. White. That my friend is a whitehead!
When your pore is clogged with bacteria, oil and dead skin cells it results in a whitehead. And the difference between blackheads and whiteheads, is that whiteheads were covered by skin cells and blackheads weren’t, which is why their heads turned black. Blackheads are easier to push out because they aren’t covered with skin.
Although whiteheads may be more subtle, they are so annoying. But because they aren’t so deep or nearly as painful as cysts, they’re seen a mild form of acne and somewhat bearable.Top of Form

So how can we get rid of them?
- Exfoliation and face wash are the first and foremost steps in fighting these annoying whiteheads
Falling asleep with a face full of makeup needs to stop ladies. Built up oil, dirt, sweat and dead skin will clog your pores, cause irritation, redness and inevitably pimples. So, a good place to start is by washing your face. Simple right? Use the fabulous Skin Glow Face Wash. This face wash deeply cleanses the skin, removes dirt and daily grime, resurfaces and brightens the skin, hydrates, leaving skin beautifully soft, lifts, firms and evens skin tone and fights fatigue. Now I want you to name one face wash that does all that!
- Make products with Salicylic Acid your best friend!
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid which is renowned for keeping pores clear, and therefore, wildly effective for treating mild acne. This is because it decreases oil production and banishes dead skin cells that end up clogging up your pores. And that is why here at millionaire beauty, we decide to use this exact active ingredient in our Overnight Sensation Nuit Masque. Overnight Sensation is a powerful night-time peeling mask that exfoliates your skin while you sleep, leaving you fresh and glowing the next morning. It also has the active ingredient AHA fruit acids which it brightens, exfoliates and refreshes your cells overnight, peeling and removing dead skin for sensational looking skin when you wake!
- Make retinols your other best friend
Studies have shown retinols – aka vitamin A – are very effective in acne treatment. That is why our Max and Magic are the perfect regimen. We have harnessed the power of 1% retinol (plus hyaluronic acid and marine collagen) and combined them with gentle, effective AHA fruit acids when you use these two supercharged products together. If you really want to see results - brighter skin, less pigmentation, acne and acne scarring reduced - use Magic to exfoliate and MAX to rejuvenate. They're like the Beckhams - a true 'power couple'!
- Make exfoliation a weekly habit
Exfoliating prevent your pores from clogging with dead skin cells, oil and dirt. It also brightens your skin. With that being said, Peel and Polish is the perfect exfoliator to sloughs off the old dead cells, leaving skin revitalised. You can actually feel the old, bad skin coming off, making your skin look brighter and younger and paving the way for serums and moisturisers to do what they do best - revitalising and nourishing your skin.
- Stop your hair from getting greasy – wash it regularly
So, we already know that excess oil clogs pores causing whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. So, when your hair is oily, that oil is transferred onto the skin, causing it to breakouts.
