Blackheads

Blackhead Extraction.

Blackheads are oxidised forms of oil that result from clogged hair follicles. They are generally small and are most common in oily/acne prone skin types. They can also appear on the back, chest, neck, arms and shoulders. At House of Skincare, all bespoke facial treatments include extractions where the blackheads will be removed.

By squeezing or picking, it can cause inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. Squeezing introduces bacteria, oil, and dirt from your hands into the pores which can lead to more blackheads producing. Ideally, leave it to the professionals.

Always use a pH balanced cleanser, exfoliate regularly and correctly for your skin type and an oil free sunscreen.

Sebum, which is what’s produced by your sebaceous gland that is in control of hydrating the skin. When sebum lingers on the surface of the skin unnecessarily though, this is when it oxidises (turns black) and becomes a blackhead – an unhealthy kind of oil.

There are a range of solutions at House of Skincare, blackhead removal is included within all bespoke facial programmes which are The House, The Powerhouse and The Full House. All will be determined for you following a consultation.
