If I had to pick one thing that I hate about my skin its the blackheads that come along with having oily skin. I’ve always felt like having oily skin has been what has kept my skin to look youthful, but controling the blackheads the come along with has always been a struggle for me.
|Silencing Blackheads in My Bathroom|
Since beginning my journey to obtaining flawless skin, I’ve gone through many products in order to find what works best for me when it comes to preventing and treating blackheads.
- Change your pillowcase at least twice a week. Most people sweat in their sleep. The sweat then is absorbed by our pillowcases and transfer back to our faces as dirt. Many African American women do not wash their hair daily, so the dirts and oil from our hair is also absorbed by our pillows and transfers back to our faces. This can play a huge role in the formation of blackheads
- Clean your cell phone! Our cell phones are dirt magnets! We touch our phones daily with dirty hands, and when we talk on them the sweat and dirt from our faces
As stated in my previous post, our hands are dirty. Blackheads are a mixture of oil and dirt that get clogged in our pores. One way to prevent blackheads is to keep our hands clean and out of our faces
Develop a Good Routine
While it took a while, I’ve finally found a good product that helps me silence those ridiculous blackheads that like to hide on my chin, cheeks and nose.
To get rid of my black heads I use two things: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. This is probably THE BEST face mask you will ever have and its all natural. The jar of clay will run you about $8 but it will last you for years. I’ve had my jar since 2013 and i have not even used half of it yet. The Vinegar (depending on where you buy it) should be no more than $5 but it all depends on where you live. You can buy any brand of vinegar as long as it is raw and unfiltered.
