Clogged pores are the main cause of whiteheads and blackhead.
A blackhead is an overactive oil gland that’s clogged with sebum, dead skin cells, tiny hair strands and bacteria. Light and air contact at the opening pores, the clogged pore will stuck and slowly oxidizing it, then turning it black. That’s how ‘blackhead’ comes.
A whitehead can be found anywhere on your body. The nose, chin, and forehead are collectively known as the T-zone. The oily parts of your face, such as the T-zone, are the most prone to acne. Whiteheads are clogged with the same component of blackheads but they do not turn black because they have only a small opening to the skin surface. In short, clogged pores without turning black and inflame we called it ‘whiteheads’.
Your pores can become blocked for several reasons.
- Hormonal changes (Puberty, pregnancy and menstrual cycles)
- Using the wrong beauty products
- Weather (Excess sweat)
- Air pollution
How to get rid of it?
There is several options to get rid of it:
- Nose strip
- Blackhead & whitehead mask
- DIY deep clean gel
- Beauty products
- Monthly facial treatment
- Chemical peel
- In-house pores extraction (do it yourself!)
A lots of bad review of using beauty product to get rid of those head. But I am going to give a try on this product. This is not a new product yet useful (based on online review). Bloggers seems to claimed the product can solve those heads in 14days! So I got the product and start to test it out!
My blackheads area mainly on my nose, and I like to squeeze it pretty much!! Hahahah! Honestly, I squeeze until no feeling already! And I realised with squeezing regularly it causes larger pores! Seriously….. Without using toner or mask after extraction, the ’empty pores’ will stay on open and not minimise at all. After a week you will see the ’empty pores’ has been fill with new whiteheads! FCKKK….
But now, I found the gel save my life! Just to consistently apply, no squeezing needed!!!
b.liv off with those heads – Blackhead Sebum Gel
This product works like magic!! I have been using for 4months now. My whitehead and blackhead has controlled!
I used to have lots of blackhead and whitehead on my nose and chin. When the first I using it I monitor the progress regularly. I can see my blackhead has decrease by 30% after a week. Very effective! You might think that will not effect after I see the result. Nope. The product is still working out! After 14days of tested and tried, most of my pores is clear! Especially the pores on my nose! Sometimes I assist them to come out by giving it a very light pinch, it comes out easily!
The gel will softens the clog that is blocking your pores, allowing for effortless extraction and removal of sores. The essence ingredients assists to keep oil secretion under control, and skin aggravation will never again rule!
It doesn’t really minimise pores, but at least it maintains it from going bigger.
In the meantime, I did apply some soothing mask or hydrating mask to maintain my skin texture.
Before & After
- Gel type
- Not sticky at all
- No fragrance
- Very easy to absorb
The product is slightly expensive yet effective (for me).
- off with those heads (15ml) – RM69.30
- off with those heads (30ml) – RM118.30
- off with those heads (45ml) – RM169.00
**Tips: I would suggest you to go for 15ml first. To be honest with you, ½ pump is enough to use for me to use on my nose area d. Apply a thin layer will do!
