Luckily it is possible to get rid of these bumps – whether they are subtle or glaringly obvious! Here is a complete guide to eliminating whitehead’s existence with an 8-step-product regime.

Let’s begin, folks!

1. Regular Cleansing is truly a Game-Changer

No matter how many skincare products pop up, nothing can beat the power of cleansing your face regularly. A 2006 study highlights that washing your face regularly – preferably twice daily- is the perfect treatment to remove whiteheads.

You don’t need a fancy face cleanser for this. Use Earth Rhythm Exfoliating Face Cleanser with AHAs & BHAs. The AHAs remove dead skills cells and other impurities while the BHAs minimize large pores – and together, they reveal fresh, younger-looking, and healthy skin. Get a variety of skincare products from Femica on the website.

Face Wash penetrates deep into the skin, dissolves the skin debris that clogs pores, and eliminates acne-causing bacteria.

How to Use: Squeeze out an adequate amount of face wash on your palm and gently massage over wet skin in a circular motion.
Rinse well and pat dry.
Use twice a day for best results.

The 1% Salicylic Acid Gel Face Wash exfoliates dead skin cells and accelerates skin cell renewal. It also helps remove dirt and bacteria accumulated on the skin's surface to keep the pores clear. The removal of dead skin cells and bacteria from the skin helps in purification and exfoliation, ultimately improving the skin's health and appearance. Make this face wash your skin's BFF and bid goodbye to acne.

2. How Often Should You Exfoliate Acne-Prone Skin?

If your skin is prone to acne, dermatologists recommend exfoliating two or three times a week.

3. What Else Can You Do to Get Rid of Whiteheads?

If your hair is also oily, it can lead to whiteheads on your skin. So, wash your hair regularly to avoid oil-build up. Plus, make use of cosmetic products that are non-comedogenic – as they are less likely to block pores and cause breakouts.
