How to Get Rid of Zit and Blackheads

Zits and blackheads, or acne, can be difficult for anyone. Fortunately, with time, there have been new and easy ways to get rid of zits and blackheads. Some of these ways were found and produced by people just like you.

  • Try steaming your face. You don't have to visit a beauty salon or spa in order to reap the benefits of one. Using a bowl, add some hot water, not boiling hot but steaming. You don't want to burn your skin. Soak a washcloth in the water for a short time until it's thoroughly warm. Now lay the cloth on your face until the cloth turns cool. Then repeat the procedure until the rag has been applied to your face for a total of 20 minutes. Clogged pores equal blackheads. Steam equals open pores which prevents blackheads.
  • Use the right cleanser or scrub. You can get different facial 'scrubs' targeted to zit and blackhead removal as well as prevention. There are different scrubs and cleansers for different skin cases so make sure you know your skin type before you buy. Be sure to leave the scrub or cleanser on at least 30 seconds in order for it to working good.
  • Try simple at-home quick remedies. Many people have proven that toothpaste works great on zits. Just put a dab of toothpaste, any kind, on your fingertip and pat on your troublesome zits at night. Be sure that the toothpaste can be on there for at least 6 hours in order for it to work right.
  • Don't fall victim to temporary relief. Pore strips are known to help remove blackheads but regular use of these strips could end up hurting your skin. They are also temporary fixes because you aren't making anything to 'prevent' the blackheads; you are only removing them for more to appear later on. Save your money for a cleanser or even a facial mask targeted to zits and blackheads.
  • Don't touch your face with dirty hands. By dirty hands I mean unless you 'just' complete washing them, don't touch your face! You might impulsively pick at your face and do not realize the dirt and bacteria that could be on your hand and help the product of your blackheads and zits. Try to refrain from instinctively touching a problem zit or any part of your face w/out washing your hands.
  • Use products w/ the right ingredients. Look for any of the following elements when choosing a zit or blackhead removal treatment: Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, Resorcinol, Alcohol and Acetone.
