2 comments

Blackheads are upsetting. They don’t just leave marks but are also painful to remove. Getting rid of blackheads is not an easy task.  Furthermore, undergoing the painful removal process is a challenge in itself.

I too, am a victim of these stubborn blackheads. I was really upset about my blackheads and gradually it became a haunting for me. It was due to these blackheads that my skin became rough and dry. I tried numerous products in the market but none of them provided satisfying results until I followed some remedial tips advised by my grand mother. Indeed, simple things in my kitchen did wonders to my skin. Amazed by the results, now I want to share the secrets with everyone to benefit from the miraculous home remedies.

I usually follow these home remedies on weekends as I have ample time to pamper my skin.

Let’s get started with the remedial methods.

1. Egg White Mask

This mask can be used to reduces pores temporarily and get rid of blackheads with continual usage. Making an egg white mask is very simple, all you need is an egg, a bowl, a facial tissue and a towel.

How to prepare and use?

Separate egg white from the yolk and apply a layer of egg white on your face. Place a strip of tissue, press it gently and let it dry. Apply a second layer of egg white over the tissue and let it dry. Let the mask dry and when you feel a little stiffness on the face it’s time to peel off the tissue. After removing the tissue gently wash your face and make sure the residue is thoroughly removed. We can also just apply 3-5 layers of egg white and let it dry and follow the same cleaning procedure.

2. Honey and Milk strips

There is no denying fact that milk and honey are great products for flawless skin. In fact honey has antibacterial properties beneficial in treating blackheads.

How to prepare and use?

Add one teaspoon of both honey and milk in a bowl and mix it well. Heat the mixture for 5-10 seconds and apply a thin layer over blackheads. Gently pat cotton on it and let it dry. Peel the strip away after 20mins and I can bet you will notice the difference.

3. Cinnamon and Honey Strips

Honey has numerous features in its kitty including antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Honey alone has skin care benefits but Honey cinnamon mixture is great to treat blackheads.

How to prepare and use?

Mix honey and cinnamon powder together and make a paste to cover the affected area. Apply in a thin layer over blackheads and then dab a strip of cotton over it. Let it rest for 3-5 minutes before removing. Rinse your face and don’t forget to apply a moisturizer so that your skin doesn’t get dry.

4. Green Tea

Green Tea is full of vitamins and anti-oxidants that helps in breaking excess oil besides reducing inflammation.

How to prepare and use?

Boil eight ounce (approximately 250 ml) water. Add two tea bags of organic green tea and let it rest. Pour the liquid in a bowl and let it cool. Dab the liquid on blackheads with cotton and let it dry for 10 minutes. Rinse it with cool water, pat dry and apply moisturizer. You can follow this treatment once a day.

5. Baking Soda & Water

This combination exfoliates and sloughs away dead skin cells. It is a natural and inexpensive way to exfoliate.

How to prepare and use?

Mix water with enough baking soda to form a thick paste. Using a gentle circular motion, massage the paste on your skin and it will unclog your pores. Rinse thoroughly with plain water, pat your face dry, and just don’t forget to moisturize.

6. Sugar Scrub

Preparing sugar scrub is easy. Mix 4 tablespoon of oil into a cup of sugar stir until it is uniformly mixed. Add few drops of your favourite essential oil fragrance. Store it in a cool place in a glass jar for about a month and its ready to use. 

Whenever required, wet your face to exfoliate. Scoop some scrub onto your fingers and massage gently over your skin. Rinse with water and moisturize your face after application. Using it 2-3 times a week is sufficient for marvelous results. Don’t overdo it because it may cause drying.

Last but the most essential point!

After scrubbing use the right toner because it gives skin even tone and absorbs excess oil and helps to shrink the appearance of pores.

My personal favourite is Elizabeth Arden Hydra- Splash Alcohol-Free Toner (Dry/Normal Skin).

It is alcohol-free conditioning toner that helps in removing impurities. It also soothes and comforts the complexion besides hydrating the dry areas.

Try each and every remedy and share with us your favourite and remember to smile and be flawless because you deserve it.
