What are Blackheads and What Causes Them

Goodbye Blackheads – this is what we all want to say but before we successfully say it, we have to understand all about it so we can keep it at bay. Blackheads are a type of comedo. Comedones occur when the pores in the skin become plugged with dead skin cells and sebum and exists with or without acne. The most common area is the T-zone which tends to be most oily. Blackheads appear so dark because the gunk and dead skin cells trapped in the pore oxidizes and turns black. A lot of us use different tools to remove blackheads, some use tweezers, peel-off masks, pore strips and clay masks but let’s face the fact; removing it with the first method for some is really satisfying to watch IF you have a strong stomach and the latter are relaxing ways to do but girllll, it doesn’t remove everything.

The Quick Way to Determine Your Skin Type

Before shopping for skin care products or makeup, it is important to know what kind of skin you have. To achieve what you desire on your skin requires right products to make sure that you get exactly what your skin needs. If you use products that are too harsh it may do more harm than good to your face. Once you determine your skin type, you can solve any skin problems that you have by getting the right skin care products for your skin and you are preparing your face to even, flawless application of makeup. Keep in mind also that our skin changes over time so keep checking your skin and see if you need to change any skincare products or use it continuously.

Discover Your Skin Type

NORMAL

You have normal skin if you can wash your face with any products with a typical over-the-counter cleanser.  When your skin is normal, neither you feel stretchy nor oily and blemish free. The best part –> no signs of flaking and your skin appear smooth. If you have normal skin your pores should be barely visible. Yes you still need a moisturizer but not always. You also don’t suffer from breakouts.

HOW TO KNOW

Begin the day by washing your face and don’t put any products (except sunscreen if you’re going out). Around midday, if your face looks the same then you have normal skin type. If you have blotting paper, blot your T-zone and if you see an average amount of oil from nose, forehead; yes you have normal skin type.

Dry skin is also less elastic. Lines are also developing as well as pre-mature aging. Your skin is especially prone to peeling  and cracking. Moisturizer takes a big part on your skin care regimen.

Combination skin is just a combination of dry and oily skin. Typically your T-zone and forehead area will be oily while your cheeks will be dry. A moisturizer is needed to apply on your cheeks only. You need to use different skin care products on separate areas of your face. You are prone to blackheads.

Only your T-zone feels oily and you have bigger pores but the rest of your skin area feels tight. Also when you blot, some of your skin area produces lots of oil but other areas don’t stain the blotting paper; you have combination skin.

 

* SENSITIVE SKIN

You have sensitive skin if your skin have blotchy patches, broken capillaries, redness spots and feels itchy. Sensitive skin also falls into more of dry skin type. You need to avoid mineral oil, sulfates, anti-aging ingredients, fragrances on your skin care products that stings when you put them on.
