Taking care of your skin must be part of your everyday routine if you want to learn how to rid yourself of stubborn blackheads that can take over if you’re not careful.  There are certain things that you must remember.  First and foremost, clean your face thoroughly daily.  If you notice you have dirty pores, make sure to use a pore strip for the most expedient way to get rid of the dirt before it turns into blackheads.

Dirty pores can diminish the suppleness of your skin as time goes on.  A pore can be stretched and lose its elasticity, and this is irreversible. So take it into account that if you notice tiny dots, you need to take care of your skin right away.

How do you get rid of the dead skin that clogs your pores?

Blackheads are the result of oil and dirt combined, so you need a safe way to get rid of both.  The best way to get rid of dead skin is to exfoliate your skin.  Make sure to exfoliate 2 to 3 times each week. The more oily skin you have, the more you’ll need to exfoliate since oily skin is prone to blackheads.  Make sure you don’t use an abrasive cloth when you’re exfoliating, and always remember to moisturize afterwards.

Lastly, an important tip to keep in mind is to use a clay mask.  You can leave it on for about 15 minutes or you can do a spot treatment while sleeping.  If your skin produces excess oil, spot treating your nose or T-zone will give you overnight protection.
