Blackheads are definitely one of the most irritating and annoying things that could ever happen to our facial skin along with pimples or acne, blemishes, clogged pores, oily skin and dark spots. These blackheads are small and dark pinpoint spots on out skins that are sometimes very visible from the naked eye. What is even worse about this condition aside from making us look unattractive is that blackheads are also quite hard to get rid of. Washing our face over and over again with many facial washes won’t even help in reducing these annoying things. Most of these blackheads are located on our nose; however, some are also seen around our ears. Fortunately, there are still some effective ways for us to use in order to learn how to get rid of blackheads in ears.
Blackheads are usually produced whenever excess oils pools in our pores and eventually hardens. Because it comes in contact with oxygen, it basically oxidizes, which turns it in the color gray or black. So in order for us to remove or eliminate these awful things on our face, particularly our ears, all we need are several items including our face towels, salicylic acid gel, Q-tips, facial scrubs with beads and a small mesh washcloth.
As soon as we have these items, we can now start the procedure by wetting our Q-tips and gently wipe it on our outer ears, which will help clean it from dirt and wax. Once done, we can now grab our facial towel and soak it with warm water. We can then squeeze the excess water and place the towel on our ears in order to soften the skin, which will also help is opening the pores. This will make it a lot easier for us to eliminate the black heads. This should be done for at least a minute on each ear.
After doing this, we can star dipping the Q-tip into the salicylic acid gel and carefully apply it onto the area with blackheads for at least once a day. This acid solution is a chemical exfoliant that helps in breaking down the dirt and oil that has clogged out pores. As soon as the acid gel is applied, we can slightly wet the mesh washcloth with our facial scrub with beads and rub it onto the affected area. We can do this by wrapping the mesh cloth around our finger while gently rubbing it on the outer ear. Once done, we can now rinse the area and do the scrubbing twice a week for better results.
These are some of the important things that we need to know with regards to getting rid of blackheads on our outer ears. This proves that we don’t have to spend a lot of money in order just to experience the best results in our skin.
