Home Remedies For Blackheads Removal
Baking soda: There are very few problems that baking soda cannot solve. It has an antiseptic quality that is perfect for getting rid of blackheads on the chin, nose, and other areas of the face. Make a paste using a tablespoon of baking soda and a small amount of water. Apply this to the affected areas, allow it to dry, and rinse off with warm water. Follow this a couple of times a week, and those unsightly eruptions will be gone in no time.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon contains anti-bacterial properties and will get rid of those dark spots in little to no time. Make a face mask using organic cinnamon and organic honey in a 1:2 ratio, apply this on the spots and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash off with a mild face wash, apply some moisturiser, and you’re good to go. Try to do this once daily to remove blackheads with ease.
Honey and milk: Honey and milk are both great for the skin. Mix a teaspoon of milk with a tablespoon of honey, and apply on the dark spots. Place a strip of cotton on it, allow it to dry completely, and peel this off with care. Rinse with cold water and moisturise.
Egg white: The egg is rich in proteins and is great for your skin and health. Separating the egg white from the yolk, apply the white to the affected areas. Wait until the first layer dries, and apply a second, and preferably a third, coat, waiting between each application for the previous coat to dry. Wash off with a mild face wash, and follow your regular toning and moisturising regime.
Lemon juice: The citric acid in the lemon will remove dead skin cells and open up clogged pores. Squeeze some lemon juice into a bowl, and dab onto the affected areas using a cotton ball. Let it dry, and then wash off. Do this at least once daily to see swift results.
Green tea: Green tea is excellent for your skin and health, owing to the fact that it is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Soak green tea bags in warm water for an hour, and using a cotton ball, apply the liquid to the affected areas when lukewarm. Let it dry and then wash off with cool water. Do this once daily.
Water: Surprise, surprise! The easiest, most convenient remedy, without a doubt. While face packs and masks are great, excessive use of the same might dry out the skin on your face – this is especially inconvenient during winter. A gentle yet thorough rinsing of the face with plain water a few times a day is a great way to get rid of excess sebum or dead skin cells. However, follow up the rinsing with a light moisturiser, otherwise, your skin might build up more sebum to counteract the post-rinsing dryness.
Sugar: Turns out sugar is better for your skin than it is for your body. A good scrub with sugar will exfoliate your skin by removing the excess dead skin cells and sebum, thereby leaving your skin fresh and clear. It will also increase circulation, and leave your skin glowing. Make a scrub using one cup of white or brown sugar, four tablespoons of jojoba oil, and essential oils (if available). Apply to the skin, leave it to dry, and wash off. Practice 2-3 times a week.
Turmeric: It is a great antioxidant. Mix with water or coconut oil to make a paste. Apply this to the affected areas, and wash off with lukewarm water after letting it soak for 10-15 minutes.
Yoghurt: You can make yoghurt at home or get it from any of the confectionery or sweet shops. This is an essential item in your kitchen. But, this too is a natural remedy for removing the blackheads and whiteheads from your face. You can take a spoon of yoghurt and compile it with a grainy substance may it be an oatmeal or sugar and apply on the portion where you have blackheads. Rub with your fingertips and remove with water after few minutes.
