Show your blackheads the door!

Blackheads be gone!

Ever wondered what blackheads are? When the oil and dead skin cells that are trapped in your pores make contact with the air, it oxidizes and darkens, causing the familiar appearance of a blackhead. Their favourite place to cluster is around the nose area, where they hang around being annoying! Regular exfoliation is the key, so give blackheads the boot and say hello to clear skin with a product like Simple® Clear Skin Oil Balancing Facial Scrub. It uses ingredients like zinc and chamomile to fight spots and blackheads, while the light scrubbing action removes dead skin cells and keeps pores lovely and clean. So it’s effective and gentle at the same time.

You can go a long way to preventing them with regular exfoliation, though try not to overdo it. “This is a gradual process and needs to be dealt with gently,” says our skin and make-up expert, Caroline Frazer. “Once or twice a week is enough for most people’s skin. Scrubbing too hard can cause irritation to the skin, so it’s important to be gentle.”
