5 of the best blackhead banishing products
Complexion confession: I find watching blackhead removing videos so satisfying I would almost count it as a hobby. Something I don’t find enjoyable, however, is dealing with blackheads myself. If you’re still confused by the cause, let us break it down: blackheads are overactive oil glands that turn into plugs when clogged with sebum and bacteria – when the plug comes into contact with air at the opening of the follicle it oxidises and turns black, resulting in the delightful dark dots you see on your skin. Fun, right? Whether they’re caused by congestion from the products you’re applying or an excess of oil production, one thing is for sure: blackheads one of the most frustrating skincare scenarios we face. Whilst they’re not painful like pimples, they’re still a giant pain generally, as they leave your skin looking dirty even after cleansing – not ideal. Unfortunately for us, keeping blackheads at bay is an ongoing process with no finite fix – your best bet is a consistent skincare routine with a focus on clearing pores and balancing oil. Luckily, there are loads of clever masks and scrubs specifically designed to help you here – we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch for sending blackheads packing.
