How To Get Rid Of Blackheads


Blackheads are inconvenient at best, but there are measures you can take to prevent them from appearing. Follow our comprehensive list of tips and tricks and fight blocked pores that cause blackheads.

Cleansing thoroughly but gently

Cleansing oily skin is particularly important for removing blackheads effectively by preventing impurities from soaking into your skin and clogging your pores.



Applying a face mask

Regular face masks help remove oil and dead skin cells to prevent blackheads from appearing in the first place. Try NIVEA's All-In-1 Multi Action Extra Deep Cleansing as a cleanser, face mask or face scrub.



Exfoliating with a face scrub

Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells so they don’t build up in your pores and cause blackheads. NIVEA's Daily Wash Scrub contains magnolia extract, which helps remove bacteria and clear your skin of excess oil to prevent blackheads.



Using an antibacterial cover-up stick

Consider using mineral makeup, a cover-up stick or face powder with an antiseptic effect to cover up any blackheads or pimples. These options are less likely to block your pores and are a better option for your skin than conventional makeup.



Having professional cosmetic treatment

In a cosmetic studio, an experienced expert can help you get rid of blackheads by:

  • Steaming your face to open up your pores

  • Manually removing your blackheads

  • Disinfecting, toning and moisturising your skin

You’ll be amazed at how much a professional can help you improve your skin’s appearance!



Adjusting your lifestyle

Consider adjusting your diet and lifestyle habits to contain more healthy fats, vitamins and minerals to protect your skin from damage. Remember to drink plenty of fluids too!

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
