Flawless skin is smooth which means it has pores that are tiny and almost invisible. When these pores become too large, they are like tiny holes in your face, waiting for sebum to clog them and once this happens, they oxidize and turn black, giving the appearance of blackheads.
A blackhead remover needs to be a part of your beauty regimen and unless you understand the importance of this tool or this step in your skincare, unfortunately, flawless skin will continue to evade you.
Clogged pores cause blackheads and unless you take the time to scrub off dead skin, clear your pores, remove blackheads and minimize your pores, your skin will continue looking flawed. It might look like it needs a lot of care, while all it needs is a good cleanser and blackhead remover. When it comes to blackhead removers, there is a lot of variety available that you can try, such as creams, tools, strips, home remedies, and so on.
We would suggest you go with a blackhead remover cream as it is the easiest and most pain-free form of blackhead removal. Whereas a tool is effective but it can cause a lot of pain and cause scarring as well. This is a definite no for people with sensitive skin that marks easily. If you know how to use a blackhead removing tool, you should go for it because the chances of you making a mistake or misusing the tool are slim.
For the rest of us, who have no idea how the tool has to be used and are trying it after reading the description on the back of the package, well, if like us, you are left with a scarred face and blackheads that are still as ugly and firmly in place as before, you should opt for a different solution. If you have a light peppering of blackheads around your nose, blackhead removal strips is your ideal option as these strips use glue which can pull out the blackheads without any pain at all.
However, for people with a lot of blackheads that are holding on too deeply to your skin, this is not all that great an option. If you have used a blackhead remover strip previously, you will discover that it removes about 40% of the blackheads while leaving a majority of it behind, untouched. Blackhead remover strips are also not an ideal option for people with sensitive skin.
A blackhead cream, on the other hand, is a safer option that can be applied to the face and when washed, it pulls the blackheads clean off your face. It is an effective and pain-free method which also helps to unclog the pores on your face while reducing the size of these pores so that sebum cannot clog it and turn into blackheads.
So, if you find that your skin looks anything but flawless due to the appearance of clogged pores and blackheads, you should try a good blackhead remover cream to get your skin looking beautifully smooth again.
