Your Guide To Getting Rid Of Blackheads
- For Good

Is getting rid of blackheads permanently even possible? Find out the best - and perhaps only - way to deal with these stubborn plugs successfully, while simultaneously minimizing your pores, dealing with breakouts and softening your skin!

Getting Rid Of BlackheadsTried everything to get rid of blackheads?

Sure, you may squeeze a few blackheads every now and get those pores clear - only to have them come back in what seems like minutes. Ugh!

What about all those scrubs and blackhead strips you've tried? Useless at best, damaging at worst.

Those little black plugs are stubborn, but don't resign yourself to just covering them up with foundation and dealing with them forever...

There Is A Solution To Get Rid Of Blackheads!

And at the same time help refine your pores so they're not only clear but look better. 

Pore size is something you're (unfortunately) born with, and if you battle blackheads you will by definition have an oily or combination skin with obvious pores.

These can look even larger when they're filled with a blackhead 'plug', so by keeping them clear you can greatly improve their appearance.

*Important - it isn't possible to make your pores entirely disappear. This also means that blackheads won't entirely disappear either. But by following the steps on this page, you can make enough of an impact that if there is still some very small ones left, it really doesn't matter.

Follow the steps on this page and you will finally be on your way to clear, confident skin. 

Getting Rid Of Blackheads - A Different Approach

Blackheads require a different approach. Unlike pimples which form when a pores opening blocks and causes bacteria growth and inflammation, they are a plug. Dead skin cells and excess oil combine, oxidizes on contact with air, and looks black.  

They don't go away on their own like pimples because the body doesn't have to get rid of them - they aren't really a threat as there's no bacteria growth or inflammation. They just look bad!

Squeezing blackheads is like digging a hole in wet sand. Frustrating, tiresome, and useless!

Squeezing them may work temporarily but it's like trying to dig a hole in wet sand - the water (oil) and sand (dead skin cells) are still there.

Tiresome, frustrating, and impossible. 

To keep that hole clear, we need to keep the sand and water away from it (end of analogy!).

Here's how:

The Simple Daily Step That Clears and Prevents Blackheads

Consistently keep the pores clear from oil and dead skin cells. The pore can then 'refine' as it goes back to it's normal size.

By keeping them clear you can significantly reduce their appearance as they 'shrink' back. Your skin looks fresh and clean.

So How Do You Actually Achieve This?

By using salicylic acid or glycolic acid - both dissolve oil and dead skin cells (how to know which one is right for you below). 

Used properly, on a consistent basis, these acids are the easiest and most effective way to get rid of blackheads:

  • By consistently providing gentle, even exfoliation to break down and dissolve those plugs, which then don't get a chance to come back
  • By rebalancing the oil production of your skin - no more oil slick by mid afternoon (very common if you suffer from blackheads, particularly on the nose).

How To Know If Glycolic or Salicylic Acid Is Right For Your Skin

Both acids work for getting rid of blackheads but differ slightly in what type of skin they work best for. Here is how to decide which one is best for you:

  • You have blackheads PLUS oily skin, acne and frequent breakouts:

Salicylic acid is best as it is oil soluble. It is great for controlling oil and getting deep within pores to clear them out. It clears breakouts and helps prevent new ones.

  • You have blackheads AND aging concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, dull/dry skin. OR otherwise clear skin:

Glycolic acid is best as it dissolves the 'glue' that holds dead skin cells together for a very effective surface exfoliation. It helps smooth out fine lines, improve skin texture and tone, and brightens your whole complexion.

For most people in general, you should be using glycolic acid. Its ability to improve skin is remarkable.

How Long To See An Improvement In Blackheads?

It can take from 7 days up to 4 weeks to notice a real improvement depending on your skin. Big range I know!

But after the first few days you will notice a difference in your skins clarity and smoothness, and some people do notice a significant difference in blackheads and breakouts in the first week.

Expect the best results in 3months. Skin will be constantly improving and by this time pores are greatly refined. Blackheads will either have significantly reduced or most disappeared entirely

How To Use Acids To Get Rid Of Blackheads:

Here's how to use these acids to get rid of blackheads and improve your skin:

  • After cleansing at night, apply your exfoliator to a cotton or gauze pad and apply to dry skin. Gently buff it in and concentrate on oily/congested, blackhead prone areas.
  • Depending on skin's tolerance leave it on for up to 30seconds. For the first week or so you may need to only leave it on for a few seconds as it will sting (a sign it's working!) Your skin will get used to it.
  • Rinse off with cool water, and apply a moisturizer. Make sure the moisturizer is light and non oily as often the wrong one can just cause the blackheads to come right back! (Find out more about our Oil Free Moisturizing Gel here)
  • Once you've been using it for a week or 2, your skin will be clearing and will have built up tolerance. You can start start leaving it on for up to a minute - this will really clear blackheads and they often disappear instantly.
  • This is the only exfoliation treatment your skin needs.

Both our exfoliator products have a high percentage that is powerful enough to greatly improve skin (you can feel them working) but gentle enough to easily use on a regular basis.

Results and What To Expect

Instantly your skin will look brighter, any excess oil is dissolved and it feels fresh and clean. 

Depending on the condition of your skin beforehand, real results may take from 7 days to a couple of weeks - but don't let that put you off. You've put up with blackheads for years, so it's really nothing!

And once you get there, you're golden. Continue to use it and you will help prevent blackheads from coming back.

From about 3 months on, they will have reduced significantly and some will have disappeared entirely. Pores will look more refined. The occasional blockage that can easily be dealt with. From here you may not need to use your exfoliator as often, as both acids improve the long term condition of your skin.

Which Acid Is Best For Your Skin?

Here 's how to decide again which one is best for you:

  • If your skin is otherwise clear but you've been putting up with stubborn blackheads on your nose for years, have anti aging concerns or just want to improve your skin's look - try Glycolic Acid.
  • If you suffer from acne too - Salicylic Acid is best for you

The simple use of these acids is the absolute best way to treat the cause, and therefore get rid of the symptom. 

Your skin will get better and better, and you'll have more confidence to bare your face to the world (or just the mirror!).
