Hello everyone! We’re back with our next topic of the blog series on Acne! In our previous blog post, we discussed Whiteheads and its causes, preventions, & treatments. Our next topic is very common and I’m sure most of you would have experienced this sooner or later in your lives. Today, we’re going to cover the topic “Blackheads” and how Blackheads Ayurvedic Treatment can be effective to cure this problem naturally.
Blackheads are a type of sebaceous cyst, which is also known as a comedo. The sebum from the pores get clogged together and form a small bump on the skin. Blackheads often appear on the nose area and they are open at one end.
Blackheads can be popped or squeezed but this should not be done too often because it may lead to acne breakouts. Instead, blackheads should be extracted using a comedone extractor (usually called blackhead remover) or using fingers. R-Oxygen Skin Clinic is a well known center having expert dermatologists treat such skin issues with Ayurveda effectively. If you’re looking for Ayurveda Dermatology, you’re at the right place.
What are the reasons for Blackheads?
The blackhead looks black because it is oxidized – when air gets to it, it turns dark. Blackheads are common on areas of skin that are rich in sebum, such as the nose and forehead. They can also be found on other regions of skin if there is an accumulation of excess sebum in them.
Blackheads are not a medical condition. They are a pimple that is clogged with sebum, dirt and oil in the pores. This blackhead is caused when sebum and bacteria in the pores produce an enzyme called lipase. Excessive sebum can also lead to sebaceous acne.
The lipase starts to break down the fats from the sebum into free fatty acids and glycerol which produces a chemical reaction that turns them into soap-like compounds. These compounds turn dark when they oxidize from exposure to air, which forms the blackhead seen on our skin.
Some of these factors can make an individual more prone to blackheads:
- Certain medications – some antibiotics, diuretics, antihistamines, steroids
- Age – skin starts losing its elasticity with age
- Skin type – oily skin is more prone to blackheads
How to prevent Blackheads?
Nose pores are small, so they do not require aggressive cleaning. Some people believe that anything that causes irritation on the surface of the skin can cause acne. This is not true for everyone, but may be true for some people who have sensitive skin or have acne-prone skin. Cleansing pores can lead to whiteheads and irritation, which could cause more breakouts in the future.
There are some ways to prevent blackheads on your nose, including:
- Using a gentle cleanser and following it up with a moisturizer
- Avoid unnecessary touching your nose (to avoid spreading oils and bacteria)
- Using a toner to remove any remaining dirt or oil
How to easily remove Blackheads with Blackheads Ayurvedic Treatment?
It’s important to know how to remove blackheads from your skin in order to get rid of them and prevent them from coming back. There are many ways to remove blackheads, some more popular than others. Some methods include: peeling the blackhead off, using an acid or other chemical compounds, picking at the blackhead until it pops out on its own, using a pore strip or scrubbing the area with an exfoliating cleanser.
The most popular way to remove blackheads is by popping them out using your fingers or nails with some additional pressure applied. This “squeeze” method is effective at getting rid of wrinkles, blemishes, and other signs of aging. Also, Blackheads Ayurvedic Treatment helps you get rid of the blackheads naturally.
