Hi guys, I've noticed that right before I start to get new acne, I see blackheads appear all over my face. It is those blackheads which then become acne. During my good skin days, the blackheads also appear few and far between. I have read that blackheads are formed due to hormones which as most of us here have experienced can be controlled by diet. I have myself done it many times. Regulated my hormones by avoiding milk, sugar etc. But from time and time again I relapse. and those sneaky blackheads appear.
It's one of those times. My whole face first got filled with blackheads. They are so many and so deep pitted that I cannot get them out. Result, my face is now purging them out hence severe pus filled acne all over.
So anyway, I wanted to initiate this discussion to share ideas about
1) how to keep hormones regulated and avoid blackheads?
2) if one does see blackheads form, how to nip them in the bud before they get inflamed? Specially if they are deep pitted
Thoughts? any experience?
