BLACKHEADS

Blackheads are completely harmless and not painful in anyway, but can be unaesthetically pleasing for some. They can be extracted but can return depending on:

  • Hormones (especially puberty) 

  • Heavy sweating 

  • Lifestyle (sports) 

  • Medications 

  • High-humidity environments 

  • Health conditions (such as PCOS) 

BLACKHEADS ARE EXTREMELY COMMON AND CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE ON THE FACE OR BODY, BUT MOSTLY ON THE NOSE AND CHIN.

They are caused through the clogging of dead skin cells inside the pore, and when this debris reaches the surface, it oxidises, causing it to turn black in colour.

TREATMENTS FOR BLACKHEADS

Retinol and BHA –based skincare are essential for home use when trying to minimise the number of blackheads. As well as professional extraction, Skinfit Studio has a selection of skin peels available that help to exfoliate the build-up of keratin and prevent them from returning.
