Treating blackhead with conventional treatments of pore strips, scrubs and facials will not work, except to temporarily extract the contents. Blackheads are caused from a build up of sebum (oil) in the skin pores and blockage of the pore with exfoliated dead skin cells. Being open to air, the sebum and clogged material oxidise and turns dark. Hence the term blackhead.
Salicylic Acid Exfoliates The Pore
BHA (beta hydroxy acid) or Salicylic Acid is oil soluble so it will penetrate the oil in the oil gland and exfoliate the contents and pore lining.
Salicylic acid products needs to be concentration of 1-2% in ph approximately 3.
We sell a very good Salicylic acid gel: Cost $42 for 118ml. This can be applied once or twice daily and progressively exfoliate the surface and skin pore. It is safe to use long term as part of skin routine.
