Why Do I Have So Many Blackheads?

Why Do I Have So Many Blackheads?

When we look in the mirror and see blackheads on our face it can be annoying, especially as we expect them to go away after our teenage years. But many of us have blackheads at every age, and the best thing to do to help clear them is with a good cleansing routine in the morning and evening. At Nakin we have a range of excellent natural cleansers that thoroughly clean skin, while being kind to skin at the same time. The Advanced Cleansing Milk helps to dislodge grime in the pores, especially if applied with a good massaging action. Or you could use our Rejuvenating Face Wash for a really thorough foam cleanse of the face and neck. Then follow with our Purifying Face Toner to double cleanse away the left-over impurities. If you have blackheads than our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic is a great way to clear away stubborn built-up grime in the pores. Our cleansers are excellent ways to help clear away blackheads when you have them and so is practices such as facial steaming, but it is also good to know what causes them and we have outlined this below.

Blackheads can seem to refuse to budge, no matter how hard you scrub your skin. Have you ever wondered what causes these pesky black bumps to appear on your nose, chin, and forehead? Well, wonder no more. In this blog post, we will discuss what blackheads are and what causes them. 

Blackheads are a type of blockage that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with natural oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria. They get their name from the fact that the surface of the clogged pore appears black. Blackheads are most commonly found on the face, but they can also occur on the chest, back, and other parts of the body. While blackheads are not as severe as other types of congestion, they can still be unsightly and difficult to get rid of.

One of the main causes of blackheads is excess oil production in the skin. When the sebaceous glands in your skin produce too much oil, it can mix with dead skin cells and bacteria to form blackheads. Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during puberty, pregnancy, and menstruation, can also lead to increased oil production and blackheads. If you have naturally oily skin, you may be more prone to developing blackheads.

Another common cause of blackheads is poor skincare habits. If you don't cleanse your skin regularly, oil, dead skin cells, and other debris can build up on your skin and clog your pores. Likewise, if you use too many heavy creams or makeup products, they can clog your pores and lead to blackheads. It's important to use non-comedogenic products and to cleanse your skin thoroughly every day to prevent blackheads.

Finally, genetics can also play a role in whether or not you develop blackheads. If your parents have a history of blackheads or acne, you may be more prone to developing them as well. While you can't change your genetics, you can take steps to minimise your risk of developing blackheads by adopting healthy skincare habits.

Blackheads can be frustrating and stubborn, but understanding what causes them is the first step towards preventing and treating them. Excess oil production, poor skincare habits, and genetics can all contribute to the formation of blackheads. By adopting a regular skincare routine and using non-comedogenic products you can help keep blackheads at bay and enjoy clear, healthy skin.
