Blackheads: why are they so hard to get rid of?
Before diving into the specific articles below, it’s really helpful to think about and understand why blackheads are such a problem. This will help guide you to the right treatment – because it just makes sense!
Here’s why they are so persistent and hard to get rid of: they are not a “threat” to the body.
Compare this with a pimple, which your body wants to get rid of and will by itself after a few days (hopefully sooner!) But blackheads? They’re oil and dead skin cells that have formed a plug that simply sits in the pore. They don’t do anything like cause inflammation (as pimples do).
You Have To Be Active In Treating and Preventing Them:
Don’t worry – everything you need on how to do so is below.
Just one last thing… Keep in mind the importance of consistency. The pores they form in are generally “large” and open, and because pore size doesn’t change (although you can help them appear smaller), the plugs often come back if you stop doing what works.
