Wash the affected area gently twice a day using a mild cleanser. Washing too frequently, rubbing the skin too vigorously, or using facial masks or other hydrating facial cleaners, can make white heads worse. Topically apply tea tree oil to the skin to fight whiteheads naturally. Saturate a cotton ball with the oil and dab it on the affected area twice a day. Tea tree oil may help reduce bacteria as effectively as benzoyl peroxide. Look for a connection between whitehead outbreaks and your diet. Although there is no medical proof that diet has anything to do with acne, some people report that certain foods make their acne symptoms worse.
Studies suggest that perhaps food allergies may play a role in acne outbreaks. Avoid foods that seem to worsen your symptoms. Choose skin-care products and cosmetics that do not contain oil. Look for products that are water-based or state on the label that they are “non-comedogenic.”
Be sure to wash all cosmetics off at the end of the day. See your general practitioner if your whiteheads are severe or do not respond to home treatment methods. General practitioners have both oral and topical prescriptions to treat most cases of acne. If your acne is very severe, your doctor may refer you to a dermatologist.
Remember never pick on them as it leads to permanent scarring on the skin so use a proper way to get rid of them as I mentioned above. Stay beautiful and if you have any queries please feel free to ask and question!
Have a great day!
