Does your skin have blackheads or enlarged pores? Perhaps your problem is whiteheads. You may have tried all sorts of makeup cosmetics to cover up these skin blemishes, and spent plenty of money in the process. They do deliver what they promise, which is to cover up your problem. The trouble is that you will have to keep buying these make up cosmetics to hide the faults in your skin since they will never make the problem go away. You should be addressing the problem from its root cause so you can eliminate it. This will decrease your dependence on makeup cosmetics.
In case you have blackheads, you will have to remove them physically. They get formed when dead skin cells and sweat block a hair follicle on your face and cause the pores to swell. Dirt and impurities get stuck in these enlarged pores and your face will have black dots on it, particularly on or around the nose and chin. They are very unattractive to look at and give your skin a rough appearance and texture. You can get to buy blackhead removers from any beauty shop.
These are long thin metal objects with a wire circle at one end. Hold your face over a gently steaming pan of water in order to open up the pores. Use the remover to push the blackheads out. You could also remove them using blackhead removal strips. Use a medicated face wash after you are done and finish off with a very light moisturizer. Do this gently and as infrequently as possible. You could damage your skin when you force the blackheads out.
Enlarged pores happen when the sweat glands on your face are over active. The large open pores on your face are very unappealing to look at as well. Buy a special face wash that will reduce the oil on your skin. It would be better if you could ask your dermatologist to prescribe you one. Whiteheads are another common problem, though not as bad as blackheads. These too are caused by the accumulation of oil in your facial pores. Use a gentle facial scrub regularly to get rid of them.
Never use a harsh scrub as that could cause fine lines and wrinkles to form on your face. The common factor to all these problems is the extreme oiliness of your skin. It is best to focus on preventing them from forming on your face. Use a gentle face scrub everyday and buy a good quality toner. Reduce the amount oil in your food and try to improve your diet.
No amount of beauty treatments will improve your looks if you do not eat healthy. Increasing the amount of water you drink and wash your face with plain water many times a day. Do not waste your hard earned money on makeup cosmetics to address these problems. There is no easy way around them and you will have to remove them physically if you want your skin to look smooth and flawless
