Mask-film of gelatin and activated charcoal works on the same principle as cosmetic strips. The simplest gelatin masks for blackheads are made on the basis of water or milk, but sometimes, especially with sensitive skin, they add honey or activated charcoal, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Gelatin masks are very useful for the skin, as they enrich the skin with collagen, making it more elastic. Therefore, the mask-film not only effectively cleanses the pores, but also makes the skin supple and taut. Before applying this mask, you need to steam up your face, for which you can use herbal decoctions, for example, chamomile.
After the gelatin mask should be closed, cleaned pores, so that they do not get an infection. To this end, you can use a lemon-protein mask, ice cubes from lemon water, decoction of marigold or chamomile, etc.
When sebum, which is a mixture of lipids, is released in a moderate amount, it serves as a lubricant to the skin, enhances its barrier and antimicrobial properties. In addition, it softens the skin and makes it more elastic.
The increased production of sebum causes its excess and leads to blockage of the ducts of the sebaceous glands. That is, in fact, blackheads are the sebaceous plugs that arise in the pores over time. The sebaceous secret, into which the dying cells get into contact, when it comes into contact with air, gradually oxidizes, hardens and darkens, tightly “sealing” the pores. Sebaceous plugs are the potential nucleus of acne, and if this problem is not dealt with, black spots can develop into acne, as bacteria and microorganisms present on the skin of a person penetrate under sebaceous plugs, accumulate there and become a hotbed of inflammation.
