Microcyst on black skin, how to get rid of it?

Microkyste sur peau noire, comment s'en débarrasser ?

Contrary to popular belief, black, matt and mixed skins are very sensitive to attacks. It is often problem skin that requires special treatment. Do you suffer from microcysts, these white pimples that incarnate under the skin? Don't panic, Nubiance has developed anti-blemish products to help you eradicate these unsightly spots.

What does a microcyst look like?

The microcyst is a grain of milium which forms following an elementary lesion of acne. However, black skin is often acne-prone. So it's not uncommon for stitches to form under your skin.

This phenomenon is usually caused by the obstruction of the hair follicles. As the hair cannot come out, a cavity forms under the skin and the surface layer of the cornea thickens. A grain then forms in this subcutaneous cavity. It could be :

  • Layers of keratin that wrap around each other
  • Excess sebum, dead skin cells, or sweat accumulated in a pore

Thus, whiteheads form under the superficial layers of the skin. At first they are not visible, but you can feel them by touch. There are two types of acne:

  • Retentional acne or blackheads that form on the surface of the skin. They are very visible and sometimes you may be tempted to break into them.
  • Inflammatory acne or whiteheads (microcyst) that form under the superficial layer of the skin. They are difficult to remove.

In any case, we recommend that you do not touch these pimples at the risk of aggravating the lesions.

These microcysts also called closed comedones generally appear on the T zone: the forehead, the nose and the chin. But it is not uncommon to notice these lesions on the cheeks. Consult a dermatologist quickly to adopt an adequate treatment. If the inflammation becomes more complicated, the microcysts may turn into painful red pimples.

Retentional acne: what are the causes?

There are many factors that can trigger the appearance of closed comedones. They are due to the excessive production of sebum and the proliferation of microbes in these subcutaneous cavities. This phenomenon is accelerated by hormonal disorders, stress, fatigue, tobacco and the use of inappropriate cosmetic care.

A poor diet

A poor diet can also be the cause of these imperfections. Avoid the consumption of refined sugars, processed foods and bad fats as much as possible. They make your skin very oily, a breeding ground for the formation of blackheads and whiteheads. Indeed, excess fat in the skin clogs the pores and hair follicles. Consequently, acnes develop rapidly.

Inappropriate care

Be careful with the beauty treatments you use on a daily basis, as some ingredients tend to clog pores. This promotes the appearance of subcutaneous acne. To maintain the health of your skin, avoid the use of vegetable oil such as palm oil, coconut oil and flaxseed oil.

Certain medications

Some drugs have an adverse effect on our body, including hormonal contraceptives, antidepressants, and antiepileptics. They destabilize our metabolism, our hormone and our nervous system. This promotes the formation of subcutaneous points.

External attacks

Black skins are very sensitive to external aggressions such as pollution, UV rays and friction. The damaged skin thickens and whiteheads form under the superficial layer. Worse still, they turn into red pimples due to inflammation. They leave unsightly scars on your face.
