Known as open comedones, blackheads are the small darkish spots onto your skin. The whiteheads are known as closed comedones. The blackheads are blocked pores which are consisted of skin debris, sebum, and keratin. Although they aren’t a threat to one’s health, they usually appear on the nose and chin and look unattractive and annoying.
With the help of some natural remedies, you can easily get rid of them. Avoid using the commercial products which aren’t always as beneficial as their label says. Choose a more alternative method, free from side-effects and 100% natural.
These are some of the best natural remedies for removal of blackheads:
A bit of honey
A bit of yogurt
A pinch of salt
A bit of lemon juice
A bit of milk
Preparation: Blend the yogurt, honey, salt, and lemon juice. Then, scrub the affected areas with it.
Repeat the procedure daily for 12 days.
A clean towel
A bit of toilet paper
First, wash your face and pat it dry. Next, separate the yolk from the white and then apply the egg white onto the affected areas. Then, put the toilet paper on top of it, pressing gently. Leave it for some time, until the egg white dries. Repeat the same procedure again with another layer.
When the mask dries off, the face will tighten. This is when you should peel of the mask and rinse any residue. Pat your face dry and apply moisturizer.
Green tea leaves
Preparation: Put a tbsp of the green tea leaves in a bowl and add water. Mix them until you get a paste and then rub it onto the affected areas for 3 minutes. Then, rinse off the face and pat it dry with the napkin.
4 tbsp of jojoba oil
A cup of brown or white sugar
An essential oil of your choosing (optional)
A glass jar
Mix the jojoba oil and sugar and add several drops of the essential oil you’ve chosen. Next, transfer the mixture into the jar and store it in a dark and cool place. Apply the mixture onto a wet face. Rub it gently onto the blackheads and leave it for 30 minutes. Afterwards, rinse it off with water and apply a moisturizer.
CINNAMON AND HONEY
Mix the honey and cinnamon and then apply it onto the blackheads. Press a cotton strip over it and leave it for 3 to 5 minutes. Then, remove the strip slowly and rinse the face. At the end, apply a moisturizer.
