These times have been hard and stressful for everyone. And as we all know, stress can lead to a lot of health problems, the most evident sign showing up in our skin in the form of whiteheads, pimples or acne. For me, my main skin problems are whiteheads. They are everywhere – in my nose and my back. It seems popping them just worsens it as it leaves tiny scars on my skin. 

Whiteheads may seem harmless and less bothersome than pimples, but it’s actually a sign that your skin is purging out an infection or bacteria. This type of blemish can appear anywhere on the body – the face, back and chest. It’s a type of acne wherein a pore gets clogged with sebum, dead skin cells and debris and is covered with a thin layer of skin. 

So what can we do to remove whiteheads? 


Here are some useful tips I’ve practiced myself to help get rid of them.


  1. Wash and clean your face regularly. It’s the most basic of personal hygiene, but it goes a long way in preventing break-outs and other skin problems. With all the beauty products and make-up we put on our face, it opens up our pores to more clogging and sooner or later, more whiteheads. Use gentle products to cleanse your face and make sure to remove all makeup before going to sleep.


  1. Do not, I repeat, do not ever pop your whiteheads. As I’ve said this earlier, I was guilty of this and it has left some tiny scars on my skin. While it’s oh-so-tempting to remove those tiny white dirt, remember that you’re just opening up your pores to more infections. 


  1. Make sure to keep your things always clean, especially those that are always in close contact to your face and skin (make-up, clothes, cellphones, pillowcases, blankets, etc). They may be hiding dirt and bacteria which can transfer on to your skin.


4.     If all else fails, use an anti-acne medication. Lactezin was introduced to me, as it is said to help treat and prevent acne, contains Zinc which helps reduce skin oiliness and minimize pores as well, with results showing as early two weeks of use, twice daily. 


Lactezin is an oral medication

Lactoferrin + d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate + Zinc (Lactezin) has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and oil-regulating ingredients that can help lessen skin oiliness and reduce acne lesions.


Lactezin costs Php 27 per capsule (SRP) and is available in all leading drugstores nationwide. You may also purchase online through Lazada and Shopee. For more information visit
