Facial skin is delicate and sensitive and no matter how much we try to protect it, it still shows few signs which are not so welcomed, and one such problem is having blackheads.
They look ugly and invite other skin problems as well.
Here are few kitchen ingredients which can help you to get rid of them….
Baking soda– It is one of the most effective and instant blackhead removal idea which one can follow for fast results. Its antibacterial and anti fungal properties makes it an excellent choice for removing pimples and blackheads naturally. In a glass or ceramic bowl mix 1tbs baking soda and 2 tbs water and apply this paste over the blackheads. Remove after 15-20 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Since baking soda makes the skin dry its best suited for combination and oily skin. This can be repeated twice a week.
Lemon– It’s a natural cleanser and the citric acid present in it helps removing traces of dirt from the pores and therefore helps in unclogging the pores which results in removal of blackheads. Just dab a ball of cotton in lemon juice and keep it over the blackheads. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and wash off with cold water. You can do this everyday for best results.
Apple cider vinegar– Its great for beauty problems including clogged pores, acne, blackheads, uneven skin tone etc. ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) maintains the ph level of the skin and helps fighting tough blackheads. Mix 1 tsp of it to an equal amount of water and apply this all over. Let it sit until it dries completely and wash off.
Egg white– Its an excellent thing to minimize fine lines and also delays skin aging. It cleans the pores from inside and shrinks them at the same time minimizing the risk of future blackheads. Apply egg white directly over the affected area and wash off when dry.
Honey– You can also apply raw honey to the effected area and massage for 2 to 3 minutes. Let it dry before washing. Few drops of lemon juice can also be added to honey for added benefits.
