It’s no secret that we all want to look young, fresh and attractive. And in order to achieve this, we are ready to make every effort. However, despite this, the nature of our body throws us more and more new tasks that require the right solution.
Many of us, for example, are faced with such a problem as black dots on the face. Scientifically, they are called open comedones (blackheads). In general, comedones are enlarged pores filled with subcutaneous fat (fat), dirt, the remains of decorative cosmetics and dead epithelial cells. They are concentrated mainly on the face of a person, namely, in the area of the nose, chin, and sometimes on the forehead. Very rarely, comedones are found on the body.
Comedones occur for several reasons. The sebum released from the pores is evenly distributed on the skin of the face, moisturizing and protecting it. This happens during the normal operation of the sebaceous glands. However, there are violations of the hormonal system of the body, which is precisely responsible for the functioning of the sebaceous glands. Then sebum may begin to stand out more intensively and unevenly. Therefore, it does not completely come out of the pores, as there is too much of it. Dead skin cells and the remains of decorative cosmetics also interfere. As a result, the pores become clogged with sebum, which oxidizes upon contact with air and turns black. This is how the notorious black dots appear.
Comedones can appear due to the abuse of cosmetics, with improper skin care, untimely cleansing. The appearance of black dots can be due to various chronic diseases, stress, as well as malnutrition.
Oily skin type is very prone to this problem. However, black dots can also form in people with normal and dry skin.
Comedones undoubtedly worsen the appearance, giving the skin of the face an untidy and unattractive look. Therefore, there is a completely natural desire to overcome this problem.
Doctors and cosmetologists recommend a special treatment for blackheads, which can only be carried out in clinics or beauty salons. Let’s not argue with them. However, not everyone can afford such treatment, and not everyone has a desire to immediately contact a specialist and agree to complex procedures and expensive cosmetics.
But there is another way to solve the problem. Eliminate blackheads yourself.
We offer you some interesting and not complicated recipes for masks and cleansers that you can make yourself and safely use at home, at any time convenient for you.
