How to remove blackheads?

Squeezing blackheads, a good idea?

To get rid of blackheads, we all know the technique of pressing the two edges to get it out. What we don't always know is what this can cause to infect the area (and therefore cause a small pimple to appear, because our hands are not always very clean. The solution for this is to wash your hands well before the operation. Or else to use a blackhead remover. This simple little tool, which can be found in pharmacies, comes in the form a small pierced spoon. It allows you to collect the contents of the blackhead without infecting the area. Additional advice:perform this operation on clean skin, perfectly cleansed. Even better:take a steam bath, placing your face over a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. This will open the pores, making it easier to extract the blackheads.

To avoid the return of blackheads, priority to softness

Contrary to popular belief, blackheads are not a question of hygiene. So we avoid repeated stripping of the skin (scrubs, purifying lotions, cleansing gels, etc.) which tend to attack the pores and excite the sebaceous glands and therefore increase the production of sebum. And who says sebum says… blackheads! On the contrary, it is better to use very gentle care, so as not to attack the skin. Fruit acid scrubs, micellar waters are yours…
