Step 1

You can get rid of them if you act in several directions. To reduce the production of sebum, follow certain rules of nutrition and daily skin cleansing, as well as use special methods of emptying the sebaceous glands.

Step 2

Start by regulating your diet - exclude all fatty, spicy, starchy and sweet foods. Eat sweet fruits instead of cakes and rolls, replace animal fat with vegetable oil. Swap pasta and chips for raw vegetable salads or stews. Include low-fat cottage cheese and dairy products in your diet. These foods help cleanse the liver and intestines of toxins. The result will be a decrease in the secretion of the sebaceous glands.

Step 3

Visit a beautician or get rid of existing acne on your own. They can be removed by mechanical cleaning in the salon or at home, but strictly adhering to the rules of hygiene. Steam your face over a container of boiling water or hot chamomile broth. Wash your hands and treat them with an alcohol solution. Cleanse your face with a regular cleanser and remove any remaining dirt with an alcohol-based lotion. Gently, without pressing on the blackhead, pressing on the skin around it, remove the formation without leaving any residue.

Step 4

The force with which you press should not be excessive and be accompanied by pain. Otherwise, scars may form at the site of acne, which will have to be disposed of. After removing any growths, wipe the skin with an alcohol-based lotion and apply a soothing mask. To make such a mask, dissolve 1 tablespoon of pharmacy calendula tincture in 100 ml of warm water. Cut holes for the eyes and mouth in a piece of thin fabric. Then dampen this cloth with the solution, apply it on your face and keep it on for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Once you've gotten rid of existing acne and changed your diet, take steps to prevent new growths. In addition to cleansing your skin daily with cleansers and lotion, use peels or purifying masks once a week. Use a salt peel. To do this, mix 1 tablespoon of salt and sour cream, apply the mixture to the skin, massage and after 10 minutes, rinse with water.

Step 6

The yeast mask well cleans the sebaceous glands from the accumulated secretion. To prepare it, mix 2 teaspoons of live yeast with a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide until the consistency of sour cream. Apply for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water or chamomile decoction.
