I need to get rid of the blackheads on my nose in a week...I have Clearasil acne scrub and that is sorta working; it cleans the surface and keeps it clean for like half an hour. Is there anything that works really well in a week? Money and time are not problems.Blackheads in 2 weeks?
clean and clear Blackhead clearing scrub by Johnson and Johnson
It claims to get rid of them in 2 days if you use it twice a day baut i varies up to 5 in my case.
Got at CVSBlackheads in 2 weeks?
Iam a Registered Nurse and I specialize in skin care and teen acne.
Blackheads and acne both result from bacteria. Blackheads are basically bacteria filled pores that when they reach the surface they are exposed to air they oxidize.
Much like when you peel a banana and it's exposed to the air it gets a brown color.
Blackheads/oily skin can lead to acne so I am writing to you about acne but it applies to blackheads in the same manner.
In my experience of 12 years alot of commercial store bought products DO NOT WORK! They contain way too much benzoyl peroxide which over dries your skin and causes irritations. Often they contain too much of what you dont need, or too little of what you do need!
PLEASE READ THIS WITH YOUR MOM if you are under 18, I have a great solution for you!
Your question is very broad and you need to get professional advice. I will explain why it's a broad question!
Your age plays a role! Do you always have breakouts?
However, acne can result from several factors such an increase in hormone levels. In males testosterone or androgens. In females, androgens respectively. The increase in androgen levels can stimulate the oil glands to become enlarged and thus more oil production is produced. An increased oil production can clog the pores with oil or sebum ( white thick substance) which cause the cell walls of the pores in the skin to breakdown. This process allows bacteria to form and thus breakouts develop.
Genetics may also be a cause. It is a myth that greasy food or chocolate causes breakouts.
However, using make-up sponges that are not changed or washed often can contaminate the pores with bacteria which may develop into acneic breakouts.
If you are a teenager ( which I assume that you are) your hormones play a definite role in your breakouts.
If you have severe breakouts than you might need medication. There are many factors.
The most important thing is that you need products that are AGE APPROPRIATE! Every age group has different products appropriate for them. If you are young than you need milder products as to not dry out your beautiful young skin.
The problem with commercial skin products is that they are manufactured for MASSES OF PEOPLE and are not specifically made for different peoples' needs.
Your skin type is different than mine and your age differs from mine so how is it logical that we both use the same skin product for breakouts. We need different strengths of cleansers and toners. Do you kind of understand what I am getting at?
Here is my STRONG SUGGESTION for you. I refer all my students and patients to this website:
You need to consult with professionals and on this website YOU CAN ASK QUESTIONS FOR FREE AND A SKIN EXPERT/PHYSICIAN WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. It would be a shame if you dont take advantage of this free service.
Lastly, they have incredible products for breakouts and they make them specifically for every kind of skin type. That means that if your breakouts are more severe than mine, than while we both will buy the same product yours will have stronger ingredients than mine will.
They have a mild glycolic acid cleanser that's great for your type of skin and also a DRYING LOTION ( I have 3 bottles) that you put directly on your breakouts and the next day it's gone. It's truely magic in a bottle.
A basic guideline for properly taking care of your skin is this ( now if you're a young girl you will need fewer products than this):
1. Exfoliate the skin
2. Mild Glycolic Acid Cleanser
3. Mild Glycolic Acid Toner ( cleans off the excess debris and balances the PH level of the skin).
4. Drying Lotion used only on breakouts
1. Mild Glycolic Acid Cleanser
2. Moisturizing cream
The above is a standard you may need to only use one or two products. Visit: www.aboutyourskincare.com
