How to cope with Non-inflammatory acne
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Acne Remedies Date Posted: November 28th, 2011 Comments: 2

The most common type of acne experienced by people is non-inflammatory acne. There are two types of non-inflammatory acne known as whiteheads and blackheads.


When the excess oil produced in the skin is combined with dead skin cells in the pores and clogs them, this is known as a whitehead. This is non-inflammatory acne and is also called pimple or a closed comedo. This type of clogged pore appears white.


When the plug in the hair follicle widens and the pore is exposed to the air, it is called a blackhead or an open comedo. It gets the dark color by the effect of oxidation and light refraction. Build-up of the pigmentation element in the skin called melanin causes this black color.

There is no need to get stressed and worried about the blackhead since the dark color is not dirt inside the pore – It is only the excess oil inside the pore which has become exposed from the outside air. But if you squeeze or prick it open, it may get infected and cause you more problems. It may also be ruptured by picking or touching the skin. So it is strongly advised not to touch or pick at your blemish.

Normally non-inflammatory acne gets cured over time if it is untouched and undisturbed. There are some effective home remedies to treat non-inflammatory acne though.

Gently apply a combination of sandalwood and turmeric paste on the affected areas. It works as an antibiotic and heals acne and blackheads quickly.

Application of tea tree oil mixed with Vitamin E supplements is an excellent healing agent. It not only heals the blemishes but also cures scar tissue. Just dab a cotton swab into the tea tree oil, apply it gently onto the non-inflammatory acne areas with the swab before going to bed, and rinse it off the next morning.

Mix honey with a few drops of lemon juice as a simple remedy for treating non-inflammatory acne.

Also make sure to use a gentle exfoliant on your skin at least twice a week to remove cellular build-up (dead skin cells).

    God bless the information provided. I have come to the conclusion that i will have to live with clogged pores for the rest of my life!! I have really thick skin, and unfortunately produce alot of skin ex:cuticles s thick dry skin. On the upside that is a wonderful thing, since i heal very quickly and sometimes scars fade away quickly. I refuse to buy one more over the counter or infamercial product!so the fun thing is that my skin is thick yet sensitive and translucent. When i am in the caribbean the humidity keeps my face clean (open pores) but here in the states I can see white and blackheads a mila away and yes they do gets infectes after a month sitting on my face and yes I have scars! I have been in the states for 6 months and it’s getting worse! I can not exfoliate any morethan once a week becaise it provokes for new skin. I am in Florida so it is not the cold. I am using Cera Ve for “moisture” and its causing the white and black heads to surface quicker. I will start taking vitamin E again and try thetree tea I really need to get rid of these scars!! I feel like I’m the only one with this skin ugh-_-
