How to Get RID of Blackheads & Whiteheads


How to Get Rid of Whiteheads:

How to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads:  You've tried nose strips. You've tried trendy black charcoal masks from the internet (and hopefully they didn't tear your skin off with them!) You've tried the products all over your TV in commercials...

Nothing really works that well, though. So how DO you get rid of Blackheads and Whiteheads? Watch our video below or read on to find out how to treat and take care of them for smoother, clearer skin!

We're talking about those pesky little bumps all over your face. How do you REALLY get rid of Blackheads and Whiteheads??

While Blackheads and Whiteheads are NOT the same, but they can be treated with the same methods!

Most people think the black material in Blackheads is dirt. It is NOT dirt. It is actually OXIDIZED OIL.

Even though the pore is clogged, the comedone is still open. If you’re not exfoliating, the oil gets stuck inside the pores and cannot come up and out onto the skin. It gets trapped in the pores, oxidizes over time, and turns black.

For Whiteheads, dead skin cells cover the top of the pores so the oil gets trapped inside underneath. It is not exposed to oxygen therefore it does not oxidize and turn black, it stays white.

Sometimes when extracting Whiteheads, a clear fluid (the oil) is all that comes out, and sometimes it’s fluid as well as dead white blood cells and bacteria.


So, how do you treat both Blackheads and Whiteheads? EXFOLIATION.

Blackheads and Whiteheads are typically not caused by Acne-causing bacteria. It is a DESQUAMATION issue. Desquamation means “skin-cell turnover rate”.

So if you’re breakout-prone (and you’re not exfoliating), that means your desquamation rate is TOO SLOW.

You need to exfoliate to help get rid of the dead skin cells.

Once the dead skin cells are removed from the top of your skin, the oil in the pores can freely move up and out onto the skin instead of getting trapped inside.

How to Get Rid of Blackheads:

Here is a product that has been a BEST SELLER for Acne, and Congestion for over 10 YEARS in my store!!!

It has ALL THREE ACIDS to address all three types of acne- Flesh colored bumps (congestion), red bumps, and red bumps with pustules.

You can add this to any Image cleanser to boost the exfoliating properties.

You can use it alone as a scrub

You can use it as a mask for DEEP EXFOLIATION.

No Parabens.

It is called IMAGE Skincare Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque, 2 oz.

If you want to address them QUICKLY and the most effectively, I recommend that you go see a professional licensed Esthetician and get an exfoliating facial.




-USING A DESINCRUSTATION SOLUTION -This will soften the hardened sebum making extractions easier and more sebum will come out.

-Using a Bt Micro Machine-

it uses negative ions to perform something called DESINCRUSTATION. Negative ions pull up acting like a magnet and also help soften the hardened sebum trapped in the pores.

This makes extractions a LOT more effective and a LOT LESS painful.

-Using a Skin Scope that uses lights to allow the Esthetician to see what's going on underneath the skin, not just on top. It shows them where the hardened sebum is so they can extract it more effectively.

Together with the information given to the Esthetician during the client consultation, this machine gives them more information so they can then recommend the best products to use for home care. (Home care is a huge part of treating an maintaining great skin care!)

-Access to products that are MORE effective  at addressing skin care issues-

By seeing an Esthetician, they can also recommend products that are stronger than typical products you can buy over-the-counter in drugstores.

**These can only be dispensed by a licensed Esthetician, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist  (Just like getting aspirin from the drugstore yourself, if you need something stronger, like Vicodin, you need to see a licensed professional, like a Pharmacist, for them to dispense it to you.)

If you have more severe bumps on your face, which is called CONGESTION, then the Esthetician may recommend an Acid Peel as a treatment.

If they do, they may also recommend a pre-treatment protocol.

APre-Treatment Prot0col:

-Helps prep the skin for the low pH from the acid peel-Use 7-10 days BEFORE the treatment

By the time you get to your appointment, your skin will be able to tolerate a lower pH.

Post Treatment Protocol: helps the skin recover.

This is important because it will help your skin not to peel as much as well as help prevent it from scarring. (Not everyone experiences scarring following an Acid Peel, but some do.

These come in the form of a little bit if superficial darkening of the skin or hyperpigmentation.)

I DO NOT RECOMMEND doing an Acid Peel yourself at home (no matter what you may see on DIY videos on YouTube...). Because you're probably inexperienced with these treatments, you may get Glycolic Acid BURNS. They happen most often in the nasolabial folds or in the creases of the neck.

Please only do an Acid Peel with an EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL.
