“Doctor, how can it be that at my age I still have blackheads? Well, even if we don't associate it with mature skin, a, blackheads can appear on any type of skin and in this blog I intend to tell you how to treat them and avoid their appearance.
A clean and radiant skin is the dream of many people. However, clogged pores, especially black pores or blackheads, can affect the appearance of our skin and make it difficult to achieve a flawless complexion.
Although facial skin pores have an essential function for the correct maintenance of the skin barrier, it is important to keep them as clean as possible so that they can perspire and self-regulate. There are specific treatments for it, but if you really want to improve your appearance, perform a weekly suction to help your perspiration, it is very optimal for all skin types. the one of Cleaning Pores Device Masderm is effective, comfortable and pleasant to obtain the desired results. They also have specific creams to ensure excellent pore cleaning.
¿what are blackheads?
Facial cleansing is a fundamental aspect of skin care, as it helps to keep it healthy, balanced and free of impurities. Our skin is constantly exposed to external factors such as pollution, makeup, excess oil, and dead cells that accumulate on the skin's surface. If you don't clean yourself properly, these impurities can clog your pores, leading to the formation of the dreaded blackheads.
Pores are small openings in the skin that are connected to the sebaceous glands. These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that lubricates and protects the skin. However, when excess sebum or dead cells accumulate in the pores, they can become clogged, resulting in clogged pores or comedones.
When clogged pores come into contact with air, the sebum inside them oxidizes, resulting in the appearance of black pores. Unlike white pores (closed comedones), black pores (open comedones) have a blockage on the skin's surface, allowing sebum and dead skin cells to get exposed to the air and turn a dark shade.
Treatments to remove blackheads.There are several treatments to eliminate blackheads and prevent their reappearance, for example:
weekly exfoliation. It's important to remove dead skin cells to prevent them from building up and clogging your pores. You can opt for physical exfoliation or chemical exfoliation. Ideally, do this procedure once a week.
manual extractions. This type of treatment is performed in a professional environment, where an esthetician or dermatologist uses special tools to manually extract blackheads. Remember, they are procedures where a specialist knows how to treat the skin, don't do it at home with your hands!
- Treatments with suction devices (or also known as facial vacuums). In this case, it is a treatment that you can do at home, so it is a very good alternative if you do not want to go to beauty centers. These devices use gentle suction to extract the sebum.
¿How to use suction devices?
First it is important to prepare your skin. I recommend that you follow this guideline:
Clean your face. Before using the suction device, be sure to thoroughly clean and dry your face to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil.
Dilate the pores. This step is optional but to facilitate extraction you can dilate the pores. For example, heat a bowl of water until steam comes out and without your face touching the water, get closer so that the heat dilates the pores.
Adjust the intensity. Most of the suction devices They have different levels of intensity. Start with the lowest level and gradually increase as needed.
- Moisturize and soothe afterwards. After using the suction device, apply a moisturizer to soothe the skin. I recommend using specific products to treat blackheads or pimples, such as Sebimas acne cream from Masderm with Niacinamide, which not only attacks the problem but also hydrates and soothes the skin.
Ideally, do this treatment once a week. If you think you need to use it more because you think you have too many blackheads, see your dermatologist to plan a skin care routine that helps reduce them. but do not exceed the use of the device since its effectiveness is due to its power.
