How to get rid of blackheads
How to help get rid of blackheads in a more natural way
Have you ever stared at your nose in the mirror and wondered why your pores look greasy? Those are called blackheads, which you may have already heard of, but why do they appear?
Blackheads are essentially hair follicles that are blocked up by dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria. When the follicles — or pores — become fully clogged, the build-up bursts the skin and the tip turns black when oxidizing with the air.
Here at Decléor, we know that blackheads can occur for an array of reasons. Usually, it’s simply a disruption of skin hygiene, genetic and external aggressions such as pollution or stress. But one thing these reasons all have in common is that they make your skin produce an excess of oils which can lead to bacteria and an uprising of blackheads.The short answer on how to get rid of blackheads is therefore to cleanse the excess oil and dead skin cells of your skin, but the more complicated part is to do so without agitating or drying out your skin in the process.
That’s why we developed a gentle cleanser powered by black clay. We use our art of blending by combining 100% natural Essential Oils of pharmaceutical qualities with active ingredients, such as Salicylic Acid of natural origin, in our Rosemary Officinalis skincare line — ready to combat oily skin and to help you get rid of blackheads in the process.
Feed your skin at night to help get rid of blackheads
Many tend to give their skin all the attention in the world come morning-time, or while showering at night, but not enough to its needs while you sleep.
Our own PHD expert in Aromatherapy, Françoise Couic-Marinier,, says it best:
«The skin regenerates at night, so it must be fed in the evening. Our night balms are professionally formulated to nourish, regenerate and repair your skin.»
By feeding your skin with a night balm, such as the Decléor Rosemary Officinalis Night Balm, you’ll be able to rebalance your skin and prepare it for a gentle cleanse in the morning. This thanks to the Rosemary Officinalis Night Balm’s 100% natural-origin, combining the anti-imperfection efficacy with a blend of Essential Oils such as Rosemary, Ylang Ylang, Lemon, Fine Lavender, Clary Sage & Clove, with natural-origin waxes and botanical oils.
Its cocooning balm texture melts into your skin to infuse it with active ingredients throughout the night — without leaving it feeling greasy or sticking to your pillow. Its aromatic scent refreshes the skin and calms the mind.
Choose your cleanser wisely to get rid of blackheads
Seeing how blackheads are a result of an excess build-up of oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria, a good cleansing of the skin seems easy enough to do.
But as with most things here in life: Not just any which type of cleanser will do.
Many traditional cleaners are focused on just cleaning the skin. They often leave you with an agitated skin that thinks it’s drying, and subsequently works relentlessly to produce even more oil. Leading to even more bacteria and more dead skin cells.
The Decléor Rosemary Officinalis Black Clay Cleansing Gel combines the anti-imperfection efficacy of Rosemary Essential Oil with natural-origin Salicylic Acid and black Clay to deeply cleanse your skin — while simultaneously nourishing your skin and leaving it with just the right amount of moisture. It is the perfect cleanser for oily skin, yet suitable for all skin types with imperfections — even sensitive skin. You will find a gentle cleanser and a sustainable surfactant.
