Hey there, fellow skincare enthusiasts and blackhead battlers!
Today, we're diving headfirst into the ever-so-troublesome world of blackheads. You know, those sneaky little dots that seem to set up camp on our faces uninvited? Fear not, because we've got your back (or rather, your nose) covered in this ultimate guide to saying bye bye to those pesky clogged pores.
Meet The Culprits:
Before we embark on our journey to pore perfection, let's get acquainted with the villains of the story - blackheads. These tiny troublemakers are pores that have been clogged with a mix of dead skin cells, oil, and sometimes a sprinkle of dirt.
The most common cause is oil gland over-production, which mostly happens during hormonal shifts, such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy. Blackheads can also form when hair follicles are irritated or when dead skin cells do not shed regularly enough.
What NOT To Do To Your Blackheads:
First off, do NOT become a blackhead detective with your fingers. Squeezing and poking? Big no-no! It might feel oddly satisfying, but it's a surefire way to irritate your skin and can even prompt more blackheads.
Also, say NO to harsh scrubbing. Your skin isn't a dirty floor that needs scrubbing pads. Scrubbing too hard can lead to redness, irritation, and, you guessed it, more blackheads.
Another DON'T? Using DIY experiments that belong in a science fair. Toothpaste, glue, or whatever you found on the internet – they're not the answers. These can mess with your skin's pH and make things worse.
Hands off, be gentle, skip the weird experiments, and stick to a balanced routine.
Millionaire Beauty's Ultimate Blackhead Removal Routine:
Must Do's :
Step 1 - Cleanse
Cleansing sets the stage for the rest of your skincare routine. It preps your skin to absorb all the goodness from your serums, moisturisers, and treatments. So, consider cleansing as the first step in your blackhead-busting strategy.
Opt for a gentle but effective cleanser - we've got you covered! Our Organic Tamanu and Tea Tree Cleanser is perfect for this Blackhead removal routine. It's gentle enough to be used on all skin types - concentrated enough to provide true cleansing power.
Step 2 - Exfoliation
It's important to slough off the dead skin cells that like to cling onto the surface of your skin. We're equipping you with the ultimate dead skin remover - Deep Melt.
Deep Melt is an everyday exfoliation serum that works on the surface of your skin. It uses 5 natural AHA's along with essential oils and active ingredients. This helps activate skin renewal without the need for harsh scrubbing and damage. It will also enable your skin to absorb the next treatments better.
Use Deep Melt every morning, after cleansing.
Step 3 - Treating And Preventing Blackheads
When it comes to blackheads, prevention is key. Enzymatic exfoliants not only remove existing blackheads but also help prevent new ones from forming. By gently exfoliating the skin, they prevent the buildup of dead skin cells and sebum that can clog pores and lead to blackheads.
Deep treat is an enzymatic exfoliant, so less harsh on the skin than many products as it works to shed dead skin that builds up beneath the pores.
This all new skincare routine essential is a must have in your night time routine, use Deep Treat in the evening.
If your skin is acne prone, you can should add Flawless Corrective to your black head removal routine. This zingy acne treatment contains azelaic acid which also contributes to the removal of black heads. This'll be a 2-in-1 treatment for your acne and blackheads! Use Flawless Corrective after Deep Melt.
You may be thinking, how can an oil remove my black heads? Well, it turns out that skincare oil can remove blackheads by softening and loosening the clogs of dead skin cells and oil in hair follicles. This makes it easier to clear blackheads. Oil can also moisturise the skin without clogging pores and reduces excess oil production.
However, it's important to choose the right oil for your skin type and use it alongside the other steps of this black head removal routine such as, cleansing and exfoliation.
If you have hyperpigmentation or dull skin along with your blackheads, Super Nova is the perfect product to add to this routine! Apply overnight or add a few drops to your moisturiser, but always use Super Nova at the very end of your routine.
Clarifying Clay Masque
This is a pure and organic Bentonite clay mask. This'll help physically pull out the impurities, dead skin cells, and debris that contribute to blackhead formation, essentially exfoliating the skin.
For those with oily or acne-prone skin, using bentonite clay2-3 times a week will be beneficial to removing blackheads. For those with dry or sensitive skin, using it once a week or less will be more appropriate.
