When oil gets accumulated in the body or in the skin cells near the ear, and clog the pores, blackheads are formed. The top of the pore is left open, and the plugged material oxidizes into a darkened color. While blackheads are commonly linked to areas of the “T-zone” (chin, nose, and forehead), they can occur anywhere on the body. Your ears are particularly susceptible to blackheads because they typically aren’t given the same preventative treatment as your face.
Blackheads can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, prescription medications, stress, and family history.
Following the given, you will find a precise guideline to treat your blackheads near the ear areas.
First things first, wash your ears:
One of the best ways to remove the excessive oils and dirt that can build up in your ears is to wash them every day. You can use your fingers or a soft washcloth.
You may already know that exfoliation is important for your face and body. It helps to remove dead skin cells that dull your skin tone and clog your pores. This also includes your ears. You can gently exfoliate the delicate skin surrounding your ears once a week. This is best to do the shower.
If your blackheads get severe then you can also use acne medication but you need to consult your doctor before starting the medication.
