People often want to know how to get rid of blackheads quickly. This question is misplaced. The emphasis on “quickly” will cause people to seek quick fix treatments and creams. Nothing wrong with that except that the problem will return as soon as your treatment runs its course.
Let’s take diet for example. Are you consuming lots of sweets? I’ll bet you are. The first tip for removing blackheads is to stop eating sweets. Within days you will see an improvement in your skin.
Next is water. Your body needs plenty of water so that it can function properly. Most experts recommend eight glasses per day. How many glasses of water per day are you drinking these days? If it’s less than eight, you need to increase it.
Okay, next up is exercise. Your body can’t function properly without enough exercise. Exercise causes you to sweat and sweat cleans your pores. The result is that your skin will look better because it’s cleaner. Your acne will improve and your blackheads will diminish significantly.
After you have improved your diet, are drinking enough water and getting enough exercise, then and only then would I consider investing in creams and treatments. See what you can accomplish naturally before spending money on treatments.
If, after taking the natural route as described here, your blackheads are still out of control, I would go see a dermatologist. A dermatologist will be able to make sure there are not other health related factors keeping you from cleaner skin. A dermatologist will also be able to recommend a treatment that is specifically designed to for you and your situation.
One of the first things a dermatologist will ask you is about your diet, water consumption and exercise. If you take the advice offered above, you will be able to smile and tell the dermatologist that you are doing well on all three counts.
In summary, don’t focus so much on looking for a “quick” fix, instead go the natural route first. If that does not work, go see a dermatologist.
