Home Remedies To Get Rid of Blackheads


To Get Rid of Blackheads we first need to know more about them.  Blackheads are clogged pores consisting of oil (sebum, which is the skin’s natural oil), dead skin cells and sometimes bacteria.  The opening of the pore is large which has allowed the air to mix with the contents of the pore, which then turns black due to oxidation.  A Pimple is a clogged pore just like the blackhead but the pore’s opening is very small or closed which does not allow the air into the pore.

To Get Rid Of Blackheads, you need to soften the contents inside the pore and allow the skin to remove the contents naturally.  Under no circumstances should you manually remove the contents of the blackhead by popping, squeezing or use of an extraction tool.  Besides causing you pain, you have just set yourself up for scarring of the skin.   Scarring can occur the first time you pop, squeeze or extract the blackhead or the 10th time.  Blackheads, pimples, acne will occur in the same spot repeatedly.   Making you feel as though your acne, pimples, or blackheads never go away.
