Remove Blackheads in 3 Steps

Blackheads mainly affect combination to oily skin. They are difficult to eliminate and cannot be removed by simple cleansing. It is strongly advised against squeezing them as this could inflame them. So how to get rid of them?

Step 1: Cleanse the Skin

Before proceeding with scrubs and masks, it is essential that the skin is cleansed and rid of all impurities. For example, you can use our purifying cleansing gel. Concentrated in purifying active ingredients such as zinc PCA, this cleansing gel purifies the skin, regulates the production of sebum and limits the development of imperfections.

Step 2: Exfoliate the Skin

To get rid of blackheads, daily skin cleansing is essential but not enough. Regularly, once or twice a week, exfoliate your clean, dry skin to unclog pores, remove dead surface cells and erase blemishes. To do this, you can opt for the regenerating face scrub with olive squalane or the radiance face scrub with rose hip oil.

They allow you to exfoliate the skin and gently unclog pores thanks to a mechanical action and a triple transformation texture. Your skin will be refined, smoothed, radiant and nourished. It is suitable for all skin types. However, too many scrubs can irritate the skin. When this happens, the skin can produce excess oil, which can further clog pores. That's why scrubs should be done once or twice a week depending on your skin type.

Blackheads don't just appear on the face. Certain areas of the body can also harbor open comedones. As with the face, perform a body scrub once a week.

Tip: To make the scrubbing easier, consider doing a steam bath (or facial sauna) beforehand to "liquefy" the sebum. To do this, boil water to which you can add a few drops of tea tree essential oil for its purifying properties. Once the water is boiling, place your face over it and cover your head with a towel. Let the steam act on your skin.

Step 3: Detoxify the Skin

The application of a purifying mask makes it possible to renew the skin while removing the small imperfections embedded in the pores. Our purifying mask with charcoal and nettle is recommended for this purpose. Containing purifying active ingredients such as green clay, stinging nettle and pine charcoal, it regulates the production of sebum, tightens the pores, corrects imperfections and purifies the skin.

This treatment is used once or twice a week on clean and dry skin. For best results, use it after your scrub. Apply it in a semi-thick layer on your face, then leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly with clean water. This mask is suitable for all skin types, especially for combination to oily skin prone to imperfections.

Tip: You can complete this skin care routine with the application of a purifying tonic with salicylic acid, known for its keratolytic and purifying properties. It helps prevent the appearance of blackheads and prevents pores from clogging.
