How to remove Black Spots?

Removing blackheads seems to be the hardest when you want to maintain healthy skin. There is no easy way to get rid of these annoying points. However there are several ways to prevent and eliminate black spots when necessary.

What is a black spot?

Blackspots are clogged pores.

What is the cause of black spots?

A black spot is caused by excess fat that has clogged a pore. This blockage happens when the natural oils of the skin can not flow to the surface because the pore is clogged with dead skin cells that block the path. When the pore is open, the oil is exposed to oxygen, which reacts and turns dark resulting in a black dot.

Hormones are the main cause of increased oil production. An increase of male hormones, androgens, increase the natural production of oil in the skin, often resulting in the appearance of blackheads.

The second most important is the use of products for skin care and makeup. These products are mixed with the natural fat and can cause pores on the skin.

Its appearance is exacerbated when the two previous points are mixed.

How to prevent blackspots?

There are many things you can do to prevent its appearance on your face. Most include cleaning and some require the use of drugs.
Avoid using very greasy products, creamy or thick. This will reduce the appearance of blackspot.

Use an soft anti acne soluble in water.

Do not use bar soap. The ingredients that maintain the shape of the soap bar can block pores. If you have dry skin use a cleanser that contains a bit of moisturizer, but be careful because over-wetting can increase the gratitude of the skin.

Absorbs excess oil. If you have oily skin, try using a clay mask that does not contain mint or any other irritant.

Visit your doctor. Retinoids (a form of vitamin A) can help regulate the pore shape which will allow oil to flow normally. Consult with your doctor.
