Blackheads

Banish those stubborn blackheads! It's awful to wake up to realise you've got a blackhead forming, so what's the best way to prevent and treat them? These products are what we'd recommend to you if your skin needs a bit of help getting rid of blackheads.


When it comes to cleansing, make sure you're using a gentle cleanser that cleanses thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some blackhead (and acne) treatments can dry out the skin, but further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more blackheads! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers listed below.


We recommend using a treatment serum that help remove a build-up of dead cells, which can trap molecules that can lead to blackheads. Don't be afraid of using products that contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs, such as Glycolic acid) and/or Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs, usually Salicylic Acid) as they can encourage your skin's natural cell turnover process and leave you with clearer, beautiful skin. Just make sure you wear your sunscreen, and introduce these powerful active ingredients into your routine slowly. 


We recommend using a physical exfoliant once or twice a week, if it is suitable for your skintype. It's easy to think that scrubbing your skin with a physical exfoliant (with beads) regularly will banish blackheads, but over-use can lead to skin irritation and cause more blackheads. If your skin needs an extra scrub, try a cleanser or masque that contains enzymes. This will help tidy up dead skin cells naturally, without causing irritation.


A clay masque can help absorb excess oil in the skin, reducing the chances of blackheads forming. Try one with enzymes, AHAs or BHAs for extra effect!

Blame it on salty, sunshine-filled snaps of European holidays monopolising my current Instagram feed, but anything that promises hair reminiscent of a beach holiday is a nice compromise to get me through the rest of winter. I often look for an easy solution to hair styling that looks just-the-right-amount of done. Think: laid-back, ‘piecey’ texture that […]

Cindy Crawford looks like she’s completely defying the whole ageing process – in fact, she and her 16-year-old daughter Kaia look more like sisters. But according to Cindy, the secret to looking fresh-faced is in her morning skincare routine. A post shared by Cindy Crawford (@cindycrawford) on Jun 21, 2018 at 8:56am PDT Cindy told Byrdie […]

My favourite part about being in the beauty industry is that it’s ever-changing. I’m never bored of it. There are always new trends popping up – a prime example being jelly highlighters. I thought we’d reached capacity at pressed, cream and liquid, but apparently there’s room for one more highlighter formula, which brings me to INC.redible […]
