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!

From about the age of 15, bronzer has been one beauty item that has always remained in my makeup bag. As someone with a fair skin tone, I’ve relied heavily on bronzer to warm up my complexion, add definition and fake a sunkissed glow. I’m just going to skip over the part where I didn’t […]

Let’s not sugarcoat anything here – having sensitive eyes is bloody annoying. If you experience sensitivity yourself, you’re probably familiar with watery mascara streaks, black smudges, itchiness and bloodshot eyes. Not fun, is it? Dermatologists and ophthalmologists say the key to preventing discomfort and allergens is to use gentle eye makeup products. This is where […]

Out of all the various serums on the market, I’d say Vitamin C serums involve the most trial and error for the user. Given the instability of this ingredient, the sometimes strong smell and often associated tingling sensation, discovering the right formula for your skin can be a minefield. But boy, when you find the […]
