How to Get Rid of My Blackheads?
My face is a battlegrounds, my nose is a minefield pockmarked with blackheads between my cheeks that represent bunkers of whitehead soldiers constantly recruiting. I am sick and tired of looking in the mirror trying to deal with this constant assault. I try to pinch them out with the ends of a towel or with my fingernails, but that sometimes doesn’t get them out, the stubborn ones anyway.
When that does work it often leaves nasty scars. As you can imagine, all of this is rather unattractive. I am a 16 year old guy in high school, and will be 17 soon. Never had a date, so as I try and try, I want to look my best for that special girl someday.
Recently I have started to use a blackhead preventing cream in the shower after allowing hot water to roll down my face for a few minutes, to open the pores up, then I lather it all over my face. I sometimes soak a washcloth in hot water and set it on my face, making gentle rubbing motions to get the pores open, then I use it again to wash the cream stuff off of my face after I let it sit for about a minute.
These blackheads are not there because I am a dirty person, I shower daily, and don’t really do much that would make my face dirty. I think I know the reason – I touch my face often out of nerves. I have had these blackheads for a couple of years now. They are unsightly and I want them gone permanently.
Additionally, I have red pimples on my upper back, and a few on my shoulders that I am trying to get rid of, I notice myself scratching or picking at them, sometimes I do it without knowing. I know doing that is not making it any better either. I am not as concerned about them as my face, but removing them would be nice too.
- Is my method for removal and prevention of future breakouts effective?
- Are there any methods you have used that worked successfully?
I would recommend try using Jojoba oil. Jojoba Oil is almost identical organically-speaking to sebum, which is the natural oil produced by your skin. Studies on jojoba oil show that it has the ability to prevent skin from becoming too oily. This is due to the fact that putting jojoba oil on our skin can trick our cells into thinking they have produced enough oil.
Remove any surface dirt from your skin, then put just a few drops of jojoba oil into your hand and rub it into your skin when you start to work jojoba oil into the skin, the oil penetrates into the pores. As jojoba closely resembles your skin’s own oil, moisturizing with jojoba oil sends the message to your pores to stop overproducing the sebum that causing the oily skin.
Initially to get rid of the stubborn deep blackheads, I would recommend that you use a baking soda/jojoba/water paste with extremely gentle circular massaging motions to break up the worst blackheads. Don’t overdo it, just massage in the baking soda/jojoba/water paste gently for a minute or two. Rinse with warm (not hot) water. Apply more jojoba oil and massage with a warm washcloth.
The idea is to get those plugs out (blackheads), and get the jojoba oil in there to keep the sebum liquid and flowing. This may take some time as the skin reacts to drying by pumping out oil, and the turnaround you’re going for is a natural distribution of oil which will leave your skin soft and balanced.
Jojoba oil is also particularly good for skincare and acne. The Jojoba Oil penetrates into the skin without clogging pores. It can be used on all skin types, contains vitamin E and antioxidants which are great for fighting aging signs and moisturizing the skin. In addition it is also antibacterial making it great for treating acne breakouts.
