Whiteheads

Hi Mads,

I’ve always had a lot of whiteheads on my face, and my skin is starting to suffer from it (scars and uneven skin). I’m now 31 years old. In the past, I had to make big holes in my skin to remove them. Now, I’ve acquired a better needle, but I still think that it’s hard and there are so many. It’s easier the bigger they get, but it’s so annoying that I have to wait for them to get bigger.

But I’m thinking what the reason could be that they keep appearing? Is I something I’m eating or NOT eating? I have a healthy regular diet.

What can I do to lessen the appearance of them? I wash my skin once a day with “cleanser” or whatever it’s called.

I really hope you can help, because I’m thinking that I’m too old for “bad” skin 🙂

Br,
Connie

Hi Connie,

Thank you so much for your question, which I would really love to answer. I know from personal experience how frustrating it can be to have acne – which is I no way “necessary” in the time that we are in now. Luckily, there really is a lot that you can do to treat the acne.

First of all, you should stop pressing the whiteheads – this will not remove whiteheads – the risk of leaving a scar is really great and you will really regret that in the long term, since scars are very difficult to get rid of.

What I would recommend you to do to treat whiteheads is using a daily peeling – whiteheads are cause by tallow (fat) accumulating in your skin that is not coming out of the pores. The best thing to use for a daily peeling is salicylic acid (BHA) – and so I will strongly recommend you to use “Smooth Skin Treatment” from Danish Skin Care. Read more about Smooth Skin Treatment here.
