Instagram Beauty Trend #2: Skin Care Hacks for Blackheads
If you’ve explored different beauty handles on Instagram, you’ve likely come across videos and photos of blackhead removal products, whether it be peel-off masks or cleansers. As a reminder, blackheads form when debris within a pore forms a clog and is exposed to air where it oxidizes and takes on a darker hue. The good news is that keeping your blackheads in check is fairly simple so long as you’re using the right products and following a well-rounded skin care routine.
