Strawberry Nose: The Causes and Remedies of Blackheads

Strawberry Nose: The Causes and Remedies of Blackheads

Did you know that blackheads are one of the most common forms of acne?

Anyone can get them, but the more vulnerable people are those with oily skin.


Unlike whiteheads, which create closed pores, blackheads have open surfaces, which creates an oxidation that’s dark in color. Blackheads occur when hair follicles become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. While it's not always possible to completely prevent blackheads, there are several strategies you can follow to minimize their occurrence. 

First and foremost: Always be gentle with your skin, and if you are unsure about how to deal with blackheads, consult with a skincare professional or dermatologist for personalized advice. They can assess your skin condition and recommend the most suitable approach for your specific needs.

What to avoid: Squeezing blackheads can lead to unnecessary scarring and other damage to your skin such as infection and inflammation.

Consider the following alternatives:

Steam your face or, after a warm shower, to help open up your pores, making it easier for blackheads to be removed. You can achieve this by placing your face over a bowl of hot water or using a facial steamer. Remember not to get too close to avoid burning your skin.

Cleanse your face regularly: Avoid harsh soaps or cleansers that can strip your skin of natural oils, as this can lead to increased oil production. Use a gentle cleanser like our Organic Regenerating Liquid Cleanser, which is ideal for all skin types and effectively leaves the skin clean without causing any damage.

Exfoliate regularly: Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, preventing them from clogging your pores. Use a mild exfoliating scrub, such as our Organic Caring Pure Salt Face Scrub, to exfoliate your skin without causing damage.

Apply pore-shrinking masks regularly: our Organic Pore Shrinking Black Face Mask keeps your skin clean, hydrated, and glowing.

Moisturize: Even if you have oily skin, it's essential to use a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Dehydrated skin can produce more oil, leading to blackheads. We offer a wide range of face creams to address all skin conditions and concerns.
