Shop Blackheads

Banish those stubborn blackheads! It's awful to wake up to realise you've got a blackhead forming, so what's the best way to prevent and treat them? These products are what we'd recommend to you if your skin needs a bit of help getting rid of blackheads.

When it comes to cleansing, make sure you're using a gentle cleanser that cleanses thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some blackhead (and acne) treatments can dry out the skin, but further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more blackheads! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers listed below.

We recommend using a treatment serum that help remove a build-up of dead cells, which can trap molecules that can lead to blackheads. Don't be afraid of using products that contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs, such as Glycolic acid) and/or Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs, usually Salicylic Acid) as they can encourage your skin's natural cell turnover process and leave you with clearer, beautiful skin. Just make sure you wear your sunscreen, and introduce these powerful active ingredients into your routine slowly. 

We recommend using a physical exfoliant once or twice a week, if it is suitable for your skintype. It's easy to think that scrubbing your skin with a physical exfoliant (with beads) regularly will banish blackheads, but over-use can lead to skin irritation and cause more blackheads. If your skin needs an extra scrub, try a cleanser or masque that contains enzymes. This will help tidy up dead skin cells naturally, without causing irritation.

A clay masque can help absorb excess oil in the skin, reducing the chances of blackheads forming. Try one with enzymes, AHAs or BHAs for extra effect!

Really Enjoyed This Serum

I used this for the first time last week as I noticed my skin was starting to flare up. I was amazed that within a few days of using this I noticed my blemishes reduced very quickly to almost gone! You only need a small amount, I have combination skin and I did not find this heavy or oily and it gave my face a really nice finish.

Alpha H is the kind of brand that makes you want to be a better person. It won't stop you from using Tinder, but it certainly encourages you to update your beauty regime and use complimentary skincare products to really create a difference.
I first came across this scrub as a tiny little sachet that was sent to me as a sample, and I have never looked back. I was using a St Ives scrub that I found was starting to become abrasive on my skin, and creating tiny little cuts on surface spots. This is a peppermint dream, that is soft on the skin, and ensures your face will be completely cleaned of impurities.
I paired this with Liquid Gold and the Essential Hydration Cream. Soon after, I ran into my arch-nemesis from High School, who said my skin 'looked great'. You can't argue with the school bully.

Thorough but gentle

This cleanser is brilliant! I bought the small size a while ago and it's still going. A small amount goes a long way. Face feels squeaky clean without the harsh tightness and sahara desert sensation some cleansers leave you with. Even got my partner on to it!
