Also known as comedones, these types of blemish refer to a hair follicle that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. If the blockage reaches the skin’s surface, the clogged up sebum becomes oxidised by the air and turns black or grey in colour. Dermatologists refer to it as an open comedone, but most of us know it as a blackhead.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ REBOUNDING⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but even after the most careful of extractions, your pores will eventually fill back up...It's just their thing. If you're particularly prone to blackheads, keep products with salicylic acid in your day routine, like Medik8's Blemish Control Pads" @drjustinekluk for @cosmopolitanuk July Issue.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SALICYLIC ACID⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The gold-standard for treating blackheads. Salicylic acid can enter the hair follicle and break down clogged pores, preventing further formation of blemishes. It's the key ingredient in our Blemish Control Pads which are tough on breakouts but gentle on the skin thanks to the alcohol-free formula.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your favourite products for banishing blackheads?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Medik8 #Blackheads #Blemish#Blemishes #BlemishFree#BlemishSolutions #SalicylicAcid#SkinHealth #BeautifulSkinForLife#ClearComplexion #ClearSkin
