A black point comes from the accumulation of fat in a skin pore. We will have an excess of sebum which will lead to the appearance of a comedo. By keratinization and by oxidation, the comedo will become a black point. Blackheads can appear in anyone, but they are most often found on acne-prone skin.
There are many techniques, more or less effective depending on the person, to get rid of blackheads.
- The natural mask: mix 2 spoons of oatmeal or corn flour with a previously beaten egg white. Apply to the area of your face containing the blackheads. Leave the mask on for several minutes, then wipe your face, paying particular attention to the blackheads. Then rinse it off with rose water.
- The patch: most moisturizer and cosmetics manufacturers offer ranges of anti blackhead patches. They are used to unclog blackheads and to remove impurities.
- The comedone puller: used by beauticians, it is an object that has a hole in the form of a cup where we must position the black point. By simply pressing, the black point will unclog.
For any advice or if none of these techniques work for you, do not hesitate to consult your esthetician or dermatologist.
