How to get rid of black heads is a question often asked in the facial room at Red Lotus Skin Care in Beaverton, Oregon.
The best way to be black head free is exfoliation and just the right acid to loosen the sticky build up that makes a black head. Chemical peels are great for many reasons and black heads are one of them . They are kind of like a "reboot" for your skin because they let the new, beautiful skin show! What exactly is a blackhead? A blackhead is a clogged pore, they are called black heads because the exposed comedo is usually dark in color. The blackhead is open and exposed to the air and this causes it to turn dark in color. The reason these show up is because the sebum, our skin's natural oil, gets overly produced and clogs the hair follicles as it mixes with dead skin cells. Chemical peel removes layers of dead skin taking those black heads with it. With chemical peels and proper home-care, we can keep the blackheads away! The glycolic and salycilic acids in the peels and skincare products help keep them away.
