This shortcut will lead you in circles. Learn how to to get rid of blackheads permanently!

Blackheads 101 (a mini crash course, because understanding them will set you free!):

  • The oil our skin naturally makes combined with our own sweat is our skin’s first line of defense against harmful bacteria. However, most skin products we use strip away and suppress too much of this wonderful, beneficial, and natural oil. If this oil can’t travel successfully through our pore canals to be released onto our skin’s surface, it will get stuck underneath, collecting bacteria and eventually becoming blackheads or whiteheads.
  • The most common reason this oil becomes trapped is chronic topical dehydration. A clogged pore becomes a tiny infection that our body sends white blood cells to attack. Often being trapped for months and sometimes even years, the surface area of the clogged pore will oxidize when exposed to air, turning it black. Blackheads are only black on the surface; they are white or yellow just underneath the tip that has been exposed to air.
  • Removing a portion of these small chronic blackheads is possible with sticky tape and strips, however, they will always ALWAYS come back. The underlying cause of our skin’s chronic dehydration must be addressed in order to permanently resolve the clogging and buildup in our pore canals in the first place. Blackheads and whiteheads are signs of thirsty skin that can result not only in long-term skin texture issues, but more importantly, can lead to the formation of possible precursor lesions for skin cancer when neglected over time.
  • Professional extractions are the best way to remove blackheads initially but increasing water levels and restoring barrier will keep them away permanently.

The moral of this blackhead story…find an extraction expert professional. Politely decline conventional acne and blackhead treatments. Learn how to hydrate your skin, restore its barrier daily to unclog your pores and enjoy clear skin and pores every single day.

Keep learning about the new paradigm shift and what this means for your skin…practically.
