How To Banish Blackheads?

PKMH Skin Solutions

One of the most frequent types of acne is caused by blackheads. Blackheads are more common in those with oily skin, although they can happen to anyone.

Pores become clogged as a result of a mix of dead skin cells and excess oil (sebum) produced by your sebaceous glands.

Unlike whiteheads, blackheads have open surfaces, resulting in a dark-colored oxidation.

We know it is always tempting to pinch or push the black plug out, but doing that will result in scarring and other skin related issues.

The good news is that there are a plethora of over the counter remedies with excellent ingredients to exfoliate, soften and even remove blackheads.


10 ways to remove blackheads are

1. Use salicylic acid to cleanse:

Look for over the counter medications that contain salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide. Because it breaks down the components that clog pores, salicylic acid is the preferred ingredient for treating blackheads and whiteheads. You can remove dead skin cells, excess oils by using a daily cleanser containing salicylic acid. Although you should still wash your face twice a day, start by using a cleanser with salicylic acid only once a day.

2. Use AHAs and BHAs to gently exfoliate:

You may have heard that exfoliating had a bad impact on the acne in the past. This is especially true for inflammation acne. Regular exfoliation in fact can help eliminate excessive amounts of dead skin cells that can clog pores and can cause blackheads. Instead of searching and using harsh scrubs, check for alpha and beta hydroxy acids. The most prevalent kind of AHA is glycolic acid, whereas salicylic acid is a significant BHA.

3. Get a skin brush :

By eliminating dead skin cells, a skin brush can give similar exfoliating advantages to AHAs and BHAs. Use a skin brush periodically with a gentle cleansing wash.

4. Use retinoids that are applied to the skin:

Retinoids can help unclog pores, which can help with obstinate blackheads. Other OTC medicines may be more effective as a result of this procedure since they are more able to access the follicle.

If you have dry skin, do not use harsh exfoliants like retinoids.

5. Apply a clay mask to your face:

Clay masks assist to draw oils and impurities out of the skin, which helps to unclog pores. Clay masks are frequently recommended for oily skin.

6. Apply a charcoal mask on your face:

Charcoal masks, like clay masks, pull oil and other impurities deep into the skin. These advantages are expected to be amplified by charcoal.

7. Think about getting a chemical peel:

Chemical peels have long been used to treat anti aging issues like age spots and fine wrinkles. AHAs and BHAs are commonly used in peels, and they operate by exfoliating the skin

8: Try to use non comedogenic products:

It is very important to see the labels of your product and search for non comedogenic products, so that they do not clog your pores. Awareness is important for such products.

9. Never sleep with your makeup on:

You've probably woken up to a breakout after sleeping with makeup on. Thats because prolonged wearing of makeup when asleep can cause pores to clog resulting in acne.

10. Never try extraction, scratching and picking or popping of your blackheads:

It will always aggravate the situation and the blackhead might not come out. This might lead to skin irritation leading to more bacteria inside the blemish.


These were the top 10 methods to help with your blackheads. There’s no sure shot remedy for clear and clean skin, in one go. You will need to test a technique that works for your skin type and form a routine to banish blackheads from the root. Make Skincare a daily ritual and enjoy glowing skin everyday!
