Don’t let these blackheads mar your radiant skin and affect your self-esteem. Try out the following 5 natural blackhead ‘removers’ to ensure a blackhead-free skin.
1. Clay Mask
Clay being one of the most useful minerals works great in removing oils and any other additional substances that are lodged in your pores.
It can be combined with pure water or apple cider vinegar (ACV) to make a mask that can be applied on to your face.
You can leave this mask on for 10-25 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. Remember that as the mask dries out it also tightens your facial skin giving it a youthful look.
2. Egg white mask
Although some people might not opt for this method because of the smell associated with eggs, giving it a try at least once will do you no harm.
Egg whites basically work by hardening your pores thereby reducing your blackheads and preventing them from accumulating in the future as well.
You need to separate the egg white from yolk and apply it using your fingers or a paintbrush onto the areas where you have blackheads.
Try putting on more than one layer of egg white for better results by letting each layer dry out and then applying the next layer above it.
After you start feeling that your skin is getting tight that would be in around 15 minutes, you can use wet cloth to remove the egg white gently. No need to rub it off!
Why did we add toothpaste in our list of these natural blackhead removers? Well, because it actually helped many people in removing their blackheads.
All you have to do is to apply toothpaste onto the parts of your face and nose where you have blackheads and leave it there for about 25 minutes. Then, wash your face with warm water and repeat this daily for a blackhead-free skin.
4. Baking Soda and Water Paste
Did you know that baking soda works great as a skin exfoliator if used properly? While using a lot of soda can actually make your skin dry and hard, an appropriate use of soda can actually provide amazing results.
You need to take some baking soda and combine it with water to form a paste that can be easily applied onto your face and nose.
Massage gently with this paste and let it stay there for a few minutes. Once it is dry, wash your skin thoroughly, dry it and quickly apply some skin moisturizer so that there is no chance of your skin getting dried out.
Having antibacterial and antioxidant properties, honey is great for your skin. It easily sticks to your skin and once removed takes any additional unwanted substances with it.
You can use honey as a blackhead remover by applying some honey onto your fingertips, sticking it onto your blackheads and quickly pulling it away.
This way any stuff that is stuck in your pores is sucked out thanks to the sticky honey. You can repeat this process several times until you feel that some of your blackheads have been removed.
Finally, we have a tip that you can pair with these natural blackhead removers to help you in the long run as well. Remember to always wash your face and keep it cleaned at all times. This way the chances of blackheads filling in your pores reduce and your skin remains flawless!
