Blackheads can settle in a wide variety of places: on the nose, on the chin, on the forehead, on the cheekbones, and even on the shoulders and back. This skin defect is not visible to the eye as, for example, acne, but still almost everyone tries to squeeze out blackheads, as they spoil the appearance of the skin.
Reasons for the appearance of black dots
In cosmetology, blackheads are called comedones. Black dots are clogged sebaceous glands with a mixture of excess sebum, dust, dirt. When the time is open, comedones turn black due to the interaction with oxygen. Most often, blackheads appear in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin).
The main reasons for the appearance of comedones include: malfunction of the gastrointestinal tract due to: malnutrition (excessive consumption of sweet, flour, fatty, smoked, alcohol); applying improperly selected or poor quality cosmetics; hormonal disruption (it is well known, for example, that excessive production of testosterone by the body leads to the appearance of acne and comedones); psychological stress on the body; polluted environment (dust, dirt, high humidity).
Why it is impossible to crush black dots
Too many, in order to eliminate comedones, try to squeeze them out. Experts categorically forbid doing this. What are the reasons?
When a black dot is squeezed out of one pore, the adjacent pores are pressed deep into the skin. Moreover, they are pressed in along with all the bacteria, dust and dirt that are on the surface of the skin at this moment, respectively, they become inflamed and turn from a small point into a large pimple. Thus, acne caused by improper facial care can remain for a long time.
When squeezed out, an infection can be introduced, if it enters the bloodstream, it will instantly spread throughout the body and, first of all, to the brain. In addition, even when extruding with a clean, sterile needle, there is a danger of getting it into the facial nerve, after which the whole face can be distorted.
After squeezing out the comedone, a boil may form, with which you can end up in the hospital. Regular trauma to the skin can lead to the formation of scars and scars, which will be difficult to mask.
It is known that the body tends to increase the resistance in response to active actions, that is, when the black dots are squeezed out, the production of sebum increases and the pores become clogged.
To eliminate all blackheads, it is recommended to seek the help of a specialist. In modern cosmetology, various safe methods are used to get rid of blackheads. At home, you can make various masks and try to eliminate the cause of comedones.
