Blackheads are actually hardened oil obstructions. They are caused by excessive secretion of skin oils, and excess oils block pores. After these oils harden, they are exposed to the air. Together with the dust, dirt and oxidation in the air, it slowly changes. Black leads to blackheads.
Under what circumstances are more likely to produce blackheads?
▲Internal reasons: The main problem is living habits. Staying up late, eating too many sweets, eating greasy food, etc. will cause the sebaceous glands to secrete too much oil. Of course, some people are due to endocrine disorders or natural oil secretion, so you need to see a doctor.
▲External reasons: We all know that unclean makeup can clog pores, but in fact, as long as you use cosmetics, you may clog pores, such as the ingredient list of cosmetics—[isopropyl linoleate] and so on. [Esters], the molecules are not too big or small, the most likely to be "blocked" in the pores~
Regarding blackheads, many girls use methods such as plucking and squeezing to solve it. Although this is not wrong, it can only remove the blackheads that have formed on the surface. They may be repeated later. Therefore, the root cause is to balance the water and oil. Or reduce the excessive secretion of oil to solve the blackheads.

Therefore, if you like to use it, it is recommended to use it once 2-3 weeks, not too often.And use astringent to make a wet compress after treatment, and follow-up maintenance is in place to reduce damage.

Mandelic acid, fruit acid, salicylic acid, azelaic acid, adapalene (third-generation retinoic acid drugs), etc. All have corresponding effects. Among them, the most used is fat-soluble salicylic acid, which can penetrate into the deep layer of pores along the sebaceous glands that secrete oil, which is beneficial to dissolve the old and accumulated stratum corneum in the pores and improve the clogging of pores, so it can block acne. Forms and shrinks enlarged pores. However, unhealthy skin (acne, wound, sensitive) should not be easily acidified. At the same time, you can choose a product with a lower acid concentration at the beginning, and use it at low frequency.
Cleansing includes cleansing, exfoliating, and deep cleansing. Basically no damage, but the effect is not obvious enough, the effect is slow. But regular deep cleansing can still reduce the appearance of blackheads. Cleansing is an important part of removing blackheads. Although the effect is not obvious, it is mainly used to remove excess oil and reduce the appearance of blackheads. Exfoliating is to remove dead keratin, reduce the clogging of these keratin pores and cause blackheads. In addition to gels, there are scrubs and exfoliating products that are more straightforward, but try to choose as small as possible to reduce skin damage. (Frequency: once every 1-2 weeks) The deep cleansing mask can also remove dead cutin, allowing the oil particles that block the pores to be discharged smoothly. Then the blackheads are sucked out of the skin through the adsorbent components inside. (Frequency: once every 1-2 weeks)
Fourthly: Medical beauty (vacuum export)
Blackheads can be cleaned by needles in medical aesthetics, that is, "simple and rough" blackheads are pulled out, or a layer of derivation solution (acids) is applied first, and then sucked out with a vacuum instrument. Please follow the doctor's advice for details in a regular hospital or the beauty agency.
