Banish Blackheads

Blackheads are possibly even more pesky than those swollen red spots. They are so hard to get rid off and are so small yet can't really destroy a perfect complexion.
Before you squeeze them (which is the worst thing you can do for them) there are a few more preventive measures you can take to stop them coming back.
Firstly - facials! If you cant afford a professional salon treatment the is a much easier way to do one yourself using nothing but ice. Wrap a couple of ice cubes in some tissue or a little bag and gently rub over your face just before bed. It is important you don't put the ice directly on your face as it can actually cause the blood vessels to burst.
Exfoliating the skin is the next important step. I always use my homemade recipes of sugar, olive oil and essentials oils. Exfoliating is the best way to rid the skin of the all the dirt trapped under the pours which is what causes those blackhead.
After exfoliating gently wet a brush , like a toothbrush, and lightly rub over the face to totally get rid of the dirt.
Finally cleanse. This will help soften the skin and close the pours to prevent dirt getting trapped in the pours again.
