Taking care of our Skin is an important part of our routine; we like to look our best don’t we?!
It seems that the age-old pimple isn’t the only worry for us though, as new research reveals that nearly one in five of us feel self-conscious because of blackheads and nearly one in six have even avoided a social situation because of them.
Many girls feel like they are left with unattractive large visible pores even when they do get rid of blackheads and a massive 67% use make up to try and cover up the problem, according to the research by Neutrogena.
The Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub helps eliminate blackheads from the first day and reduces the appearance of pores. It cleanses deep down to unclog pores and remove trapped oil, dirt and impurities.
Dr Dawn Harper, GP and media doctor explains:
“Skin problems can cause self-confidence issues, not to mention embarrassment for many young adults. Blackheads are one such problem which can be particularly troublesome. There seems to be a lack of knowledge around what causes this particular Skin issue and the best ways of treating it. Essentially, they are large pores, also known as comedones, with a blocked opening which have a black discolouration due to the skin’s pigment
melanin. Sometimes a simple cleanser isn’t enough to eradicate them, so talk to your pharmacist about the products available.”
It seems that little is known about this pesky problem with almost two thirds of those with blackheads ‘picking or squeezing them out’ and almost one in three admitting to scrubbing their face with a harsh product to get rid of the problem.
With 72 per cent of young women saying they’ve suffered from blackheads for over 3 years and 31 per cent describing their skin as ‘blackhead prone’ it may come as a surprise that 48 per cent have never used a specific product that targets blackheads.
The Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Blackhead Eliminating range has been developed with Dermatologists to offer you various solutions to help beat those blackheads.
