I was recently asked about blackheads during our “Ask the Esthetician” series on Instagram. A recurring series where I answer your questions about skin - if you haven't tuned in yet, please do! Here's the truth about them: Everyone gets them, and everyone wants to get rid of them.
The solution to pesky blackheads is a proper skincare routine. Following a routine can keep them (and you) from spiraling out of control. I'll go into this in more depth in this post, but before we get started, we might as well talk about blackheads in general.

Are you up for a challenge? Of course you are. Here it is -- read the ingredient lists of your favorite skincare products. See anything that is hard to pronounce or more than five syllables? Chances are, that cleanser, toner, oil, serum, or moisturizer you’ve been using isn’t as good for you as it says it is.
It’s no secret that some of the ingredients found in conventional skincare products are actually really toxic. Synthetic fragrances, harsh acids, and preservatives have become a mainstay in formulations, and until recently, no one has questioned it. But as someone committed to helping you #FreeYourShe in more ways than one, I think it’s time to raise the bar. Because *newsflash,* what you put on your skin can actually impact your health. And not always in a good way.
