1. What causes blackheads? They are simply a mix of oil and dead skin cells sitting in the pores.
2. Why are they dark? The exposure to the air turns them black, that’s it! They’re very common!
You can damage your skin trying to get rid of them, so it’s important to tackle them safely. You can loosen them with gentle exfoliators, but never use anything too aggressive. Cleansers with salicylic acid can deep cleanse those pores too, such as Dermalogica’s Clearing Skin Wash.
Are they out of control and you just want to start fresh again? Come in for a personalized Therapeutic Facial and we will use an extractor tool to physically remove your blackheads. Some temporary discomfort, but results are instant. Looking forward to seeing you and clearing up those blackheads!
