FAQs For Spot & Blackhead Remover Creams

Which cream is best for removing blackheads?

To deal with blackheads, use a blackhead remover cream such as La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Soothing Cleansing Cream. This is a hydrating but effective cleanser that will help to refresh your skin. 

Another method, if you want to give your skin a real treat, is to use a face mask, such as Avene Cleanance Mask or La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask. Face masks are good for spots, acne-prone skin and blackheads because they clear out dirt, excess sebum and impurities that cause spots without damaging your skin's natural pH levels. 

After cleansing or using a face mask, make sure to rinse your face and apply a moisturiser to help your skin heal.

What is the best treatment for blackheads?

The best blackhead treatment is a regular skincare routine using products targeted to your skin type. Those prone to spots and blackheads often have oily or combination skin – which creates excess sebum that blocks pores and creates spots. 

Popular blackhead treatment products include: 

  1. Avene Cleanance MAT Mattifying Emulsion 40ml
  2. CLn Acne Cleanser 100ml
  3. La Roche-Posay Effaclar+M Purifying Foaming Gel 400ml
  4. Bioderma Sebium H2O 500ml
  5. Cerave Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser 236ml

What Is Acne And How Do You Stop It?

Understanding the causes of acne can be helpful in finding the right solution to acne – since there are many causes, from puberty to epilepsy medications. We wrote a guide to understanding and treating acne and acne-prone skin which you may find helpful, and which includes key steps like cleansing your skin and always applying moisturiser after washing.

Why Is Using A Cleanser So Important For Acne Prone Skin?

Cleansing is essential to acne-prone skin because it is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, and can help to remove dirt and bacteria that can cause your skin to break out excessively. 

Shop for a gel formula where you can, as this will help to maintain your skin's natural balance. Anything too rich, and you could clog your pores even more. An enzyme cleanser should also be effective at removing dead skin cells, while speeding up the healing process when it comes to your blemishes.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF OVER-CLEANSING MY SKIN?

People with acne are more prone to over-washing their face to try and get rid of blocked pores and excess sebum. You shouldn't cleanse more than 2-3 times per day. If your skin feels very tight after cleansing, then you are cleansing too much. Other signs you may be over-cleansing include red skin, dry patches and more breakouts.

How Do I Get Rid Of Blackheads

Blackheads are one of the most common forms of acne. Regularly cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser that contains salicylic acid, before exfoliating with a product containing BHAs and AHAs. If you are finding redness an issue alongside blackheads, try a cleanser that combats redness

You can also use a toner that will help to control shine, without drying the skin (use one without alcohol), and ensure that you use a face mask or nose strips at least once a week to control enlarged pores and fight bacteria that can lead to spots. Face masks containing charcoal are particularly effective at removing oils from the skin.

WHAT IS CAUSING ME TO HAVE SPOTS?

Everyone gets spots from time to time. If you frequently get breakouts, this could be due to a variety of reasons. Dirty make-up brushes could be spreading bacteria around, or you might not be taking your make-up off every night, which is one of the worst offenders. Other causes of spots include not changing bed linen regularly, not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water and hormone fluctuations – from puberty or pregnancy, for example.
