WHAT ARE BLACKHEADS?
You may have excess sebum production in your pores. For example, as a result of hormones. These will prevent sebum from reaching the surface of your skin. As a result, your pores fill up. Built-up layers of dead skin cells on your skin and in your pore clog the pore's opening. This means sebum can no longer naturally sit on top of your skin. The combination of excess sebum and dead skin cells is then exposed to oxygen. The result? The mixture oxidises and turns black, which is what we call a blackhead.
REMOVING BLACKHEADS: STEP 1 Always choose a facial cleanser against blackheads, preferably a cleanser from the Paula's Choice collection. By cleansing your face every day, you reduce blackheads and prevent the emergence of new ones. A cleanser allows you to remove excess sebum. This ensures that an exfoliant (which you use afterwards) can reach and unclog the pores better.
REMOVING BLACKHEADS: STEP 2 Use a BHA exfoliant that penetrates deeply into your pores and removes excess sebum and dead skin cells. This ensures that blockages and blackheads are reduced.
STEP 3 FOR PROBLEMS WITH BLACKHEADS Also opt for a special cream against blackheads. Sun damage sometimes distorts your pores or makes them bigger. Sebum then accumulates in your pore and grows into a blackhead. Using a cream with cell-communicating ingredients helps restore your pores.
