Do Your Blackheads Keep Coming Back? It May Be Because Of These 4 Bad Skin Habits


Blackheads are a pain in the "you-know-what!" There really is no other way to put it! 

Just when you think you've gotten your skin somewhat under control, you wake up to yet another massive blackhead, right in the most inconvenient spot. Great!

Of course, the best way to treat something is to understand why it keeps happening in the first place. 

If you feel like you are doing everything right; your lifestyle is healthy, you’re following a good skincare ritual then this article is just for you. 

In today’s post, we want to talk about some less obvious blackhead triggers that are easy to nip in the bud. 

Let’s send those blackheads packing for good!

You’re over-washing your face

Yes, a regular cleansing routine is essential to keep your pores free of clogged dirt and grime that may manifest as blackheads.

However, if you are over-washing your face, or using a product formulated with harsh, drying ingredients then you may be doing more harm than good as your natural oils are stripped from your skin.

What’s the fix? 

Stick to washing your face only twice a day at most and be sure to use an all-natural cleanser such as our gentle, yet effective exfoliating scrubs. 

You’re sleeping on a dirty pillowcase

Take note of where your blackheads like to pop up. 

If they tend to appear frequently on your cheeks, jaw or chin, and linger on the side of your face you like to sleep on then your pillowcase may be the culprit.

What’s the fix? 

Of course it’s impossible to wash your pillowcase every day, but make sure you do wash it at least once a week. Spritz some rose healing spray on your pillowcase before bed each night in between washes, or you may even consider placing a clean towel over your pillow. 

You’re not washing your face after getting sweaty

We are all for a good sweat fest! It gets your blood circulating, flushes toxins out of your system, and  gets those endorphins going. However, if you aren’t cleansing your skin after, which allows the sweat to stay on your skin and clog up your pores, then you are simply asking for blackheads. 

What’s the fix? 

Try wearing a headband to keep the sweat off your hairline and be sure to cleanse your skin right after working out. For good measure, follow up with a good moisturizer to keep your skin healthy and balanced. 

Talking on your phone

Yes, really! We touch our phones all day long so it only makes sense they are going to accumulate old skin cells, oil and grime throughout the day. If you talk on your phone, these oils will then be transferred to your skin, contributing to clogged pores and, you guessed it, those pesky blackheads!

What’s the fix? 

You could start using earphones to chat on your phone, as well as start wiping your phone down every now and again with a cleansing face wipe or even some sanitizer. 

We hope this article has helped you to become aware of some of your possible bad habits so that you can remedy them and start enjoying healthy, happy skin!

P.S. Even if you start improving these 4 areas, you might still get blackheads. Such is life! That's why we made this super-simple, 3-ingredient Blackhead Removal Mask. It's easy to use and effective!
