Whiteheads damage your looks. After a long winter it’s time to get rid of some built-up blemishes for the spring. Getting rid of them the wrong way can make things worse by causing redness, infection, and scarring. Learn how to eliminate whiteheads gently so you can have a fresh look for a new season.
Step One: Wash
First, you should clean your skin with a mild cleanser like Flower Power Face Wash. Gently apply and wash away with cold water, then pat your face dry.
Step Two: Steam
Next you should open your pores with steam. Boil water in a small pot. Transfer the water to a large bowl, cover with a towel, and let sit five minutes to cool down. Place a towel over your head and shoulders and lean over the water for 5-10min allowing your pores to open.
Step Three: Exfoliate
You can exfoliate your skin with a salt scrub, or an exfoliating mask like the Chickie Gold Mud Mask.
Step Four: Rinse & Tone
After exfoliating, rinse your skin with cold water and use a toner, like White Petal Aloe Toner, to close the pores up again.
Step Five: Moisturize
Exfoliation can leave skin dry. Use a moisturizer, like White Petal Aloe Moisturizer, to keep your skin soft and hydrated.
Step Six: Prevention
The best cure is prevention. To prevent whiteheads from happening, always wash your hands before touching your face. Wash your face twice daily, once in the morning, and once before bed. Always remove makeup at night, and exfoliate once a week.
