Your Best Blackhead Removal Options For at Home Treatment
Well the bad news is that even the best blackhead removal methods are not that effective. I’ve come to the conclusion that the only effective blackhead treatment is INTERNAL. I explain in much more detail in the Acne Cure E-Tutorial . Check it out.
However, here are some of the better blackhead removal options for temporary symptoms…
A mild exfoliater combined with low potency benzoyl peroxide
Mild scrubs and exfoliaters like alpha hydroxy fruit acids will clear away any dead skin cells and expose the blackhead.
Then the oxygen in a LOW POTENCY benzoyl peroxide will help to breakup and clear the blackhead.
The problem is most people way overuse the benzoyl peroxide, or use benzoyl peroxide that is too strong.
And they over scrub or over exfoliate their skin. Don’t make this mistake. Use the AHA’s every 3 days or so, and a mild scrub in general no more then once very 2 days.
In regards to benzoyl peroxide as not being a natural acne treatment…please understand…I’m not a big fan of benzoyl peroxide. However, if used right it’s one of the better options for short-term alleviation of blackhead symptoms.
Many people use tea tree oil combined with aloe vera gel for a natural acne treatment instead of benzoyl peroxide. And if it works for you then I’m all for it. However, in my experience with blackheads…you need the oxygen found in a low potency benzoyl peroxide to be effective.
You’ve seen them advertised everywhere. The pore strips that glue to blackheads. You pull away the strip and presto…no more blackheads. Well, that’s an exaggeration to say the least.
This option for blackhead removal is fair at best. But outside of removal via a Clinical Aesthetician it’s one of the better options without too much risk of damage to your skin.
I know, I know, they generally only remove the top part of the blackhead. But in all reality, outside of INTERNAL blackhead treatment, you don’t have a lot of options.
Be sure NOT to use them on any damaged skin or open acne, just on the blackheads. And DON’T overuse them. Overuse will aggravate your skin.
The Only LASTING Blackhead Removal Solution is INTERNAL
Like I said, there really aren’t a whole lot of effective external blackhead removal options. The problems that lead to blackheads are internal. Until you correct the internal problems that are causing your blackheads all the blackhead removal methods in the world will do no good. The blackheads will simply return.
Lasting blackhead prevention is one of the hardest things to do, however it can be done using natural acne remedies. The way to do it is to balance hormones and purify the blood.
