Blackheads are a huge problem for a lot of people not only in the United States, but across the world. Blackheads are characterized according to Wikipedia as “a yellow or blackish bump or plug on the skin, and usually found on the cheeks, nose, lip area, and chin. Blackheads are one of the common findings in acne vulgaris. Contrary to the common belief that it is caused by poor hygiene, blackheads are caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the sebaceous gland's duct”
Now one of the biggest causes and techniques one can use when it comes to how to get rid of blackheads is through the use of dietary measures. Contrary to popular belief, poor hygiene is not a direct link to acne issues, whiteheads, pimples, and blackheads. It is one’s diet that causes the outbreaks for years, sometimes decades.
According to the videos, dairy is one of the biggest culprits out of all the food groups. This is because a lot of dairy products such as milk contains heaping amounts of hormones such as progesterone. As quoted in the videos “About 80 percent of cows that are giving milk are pregnant and are throwing off hormones continuously.' Progesterone breaks down into androgens, which have been implicated as a factor in the development of acne...Dr. Fisher observed that his teenage acne patients improved as soon as the milk drinking stopped."
This is an interesting fact since a lot of people believe that milk is extremely healthy and beneficial for bone growth and also because each serving has around 8 grams of protein per 12 ounces. Unfortunately, non-organic milk contains tons of extra hormones which forces acne outbreaks until the individual ceases consuming dairy.
Now another natural acne treatment is using Cetaphill soap which can help reduce inflammation of the skin, dry up whiteheads, open one’s pores, and gradually clear up the skin overtime. The easiest way to use this soap is with luke warm water and by gently applying the soapy mixture before bed.
Another great tactic if one is looking for ways on how to get rid of acne is by using lemon water. Lemon water has been found to clean out large pore’s, dry up extra sebum which is the oil that causes acne, and dry up old whiteheads that have recently formed.
