How to get rid of Whiteheads

Everyone wishes to look good and sport a blemish free face. However, if you have an oily skin, there is every possibility of you having whiteheads. Even pregnant women and teenagers (those experiencing hormonal changes) suffer from it.


So, how does someone get rid of these? Is there a natural solution to the whitehead problem?

Knowing about it

A little information about the problem is always beneficial when you plan to deal with it. According to experts, there is no particular reason for whiteheads or zits to appear, however, reports indicate that these are hardened sebum (oil) blocking the skin pores. These can mostly be spotted on your cheeks and around the eyes.

Removing whiteheads

Trying to remove the whiteheads on your own may feel to be the right way to deal with it. However, in reality you would end up damaging your skin and causing more zits to appear in that area.

Washing face

Whenever you are out buying a skincare product for yourself, make sure that the product matches your skin type. Try using the same on a regular basis. You may even use cleansers containing hydroxyl acids and salicylic acids. This would remove all the dirt from your face and would open up the blocked pores of the skin.

The need for exfoliation

One can understand, that men do not have much time for these, but if you want to deal with the problem of whiteheads and get rid of the same, then you would have to exfoliate the skin 2-3 times every week. A gentle scrub would thus smoothen the skin and unclog the pores.

The need for steaming

Steaming would not take much of your time. Steaming for a minute or so every week would remove the embedded debris from the skin. This way, it rejuvenates the skin and keeps you away from whiteheads.

Using water

Believe it or not, but drinking loads of water helps in flushing out the toxins and impurities of the skin as well. You can avoid whiteheads to a large extent.

Hence, it’s not that hard to get rid of whiteheads. However, you would need to spend a little and devote a few precious moments of yours for the treatment of your skin (as mentioned above). Finally, if you religiously follow the above mentioned tips, you would definitely get rid of your zits, soon enough. These small steps would guide you in getting a bright and flawless skin.
