“When was the last time you got a facial done?”
These are the kind of comments and questions we receive from the lady at the salon or sometimes even from overenthusiastic friends. You must be nodding your head in agreement, especially if you have oily or combination skin. For the longest time, I did not understand what everyone was trying to tell me because I didn’t notice the tiny little black thingies popping out on my face.
Blackheads are essentially clogged pores due to oversecretion of oil and sebum. With age and the damage caused by free radicals, pollution, sun exposure, and lifestyle factors, blackheads become more vivid and take other forms like dark spots or pigmentation. All you need is a little TLC to combat this problem. If you don’t know where to begin, we have a foolproof list for you. Take a look!
