Today’s article is going to be on ways to get rid of those nasty blackheads which have been giving you sleepless nights.
Firstly let’s get to know how are blackheads caused?
Blackheads are caused when the pores of the skin gets clogged with excessive sebum which causes whiteheads which when comes in contact with oxygen turns black.
One thing one must know is, blackheads are not caused by dirt.
In the markets, there are several products available which help in getting rid if blackheads. But then the same question which i ask in all of my posts, why use those products when you can use ingredients easily available at home to get a clear, blackhead free skin.
1.Honey and milk pore strips–
For this you are going to need about 1tbsp of honey and 1tbsp of milk and a clean cotton strip. Now mix honey and milk together and heat it. Blend properly. After it cools down apply a thin layer of it on the blackheads and put the cotton strip over it. Keep it for 30 minutes and then pull the strip off. Rinse off the area with cold water. Honey has antibacterial properties while milk has lactic acid which keeps skin soft and supple.
2.Cinnamon and honey strips–
In a bowl mix about 1tsp of cinnamon and about 1tsp of honey. Blend the ingredients well and apply a thin layer on the affected area. Put a clean cotton strip over it. After 20 minutes pull the strip off and rinse face with water.
Cinnamon improves circulation thereby giving the skin a healthy glow and when mixed with honey works effectively in getting rid of acne and blackheads.
People with sensitive skin should avoid using cinnamon as it stings a bit. Also it shouldn’t be applied for too long.
3.Baking soda and water–
Mix a tbsp of baking soda along with water. Don’t pour too much water. Let the consistency be thick. Apply it on the blackheads and wash it off after 15minutes by slowly scrubbing your face.
Do not use too much baking soda as it dries the skin. People with dry skin should avoid this.
Baking soda exfoliates the skin and removes anything clogging the pores.
Taking steam helps in opening the pores and thus in getting rid of blackheads. Take hot water in a bowl and lean your face over it and cover your head with a cloth. Do this for 5-10 minutes. Do not let the bowl or the water touch your face, or you might burn yourself. Keep safe distance.
5. Sugar scrub/ Oatmeal scrub-
Scrubbing is also effective in getting rid of blackheads. Try mixing 2tbsp of sugar with 1tbsp of olive oil/coconut oil and scrub your face slowly with it.
You could also try the oatmeal scrub by mixing 2tbsp of oatmeal with 1tbsp of honey and scrubbing slowly.
