If you thought acne is the biggest skin problem you might face on your face skin, think again.
Acne is just one of the issues you might experience during your lifetime.
I was like you until a while ago.
I didn’t even know the term blackheads, I just knew there were dark spots on my skin.
Now, to help you understand, I will call up my friends at the US Library of Medicine.
According to the Library, blackheads are actually small dark spots on your skin that occur due to clogged hair follicles.
It looks like acne, but it is not acne.
Aside from the face (mostly on the nose), blackheads can also form on the chest, arms, neck, and back.
So, how to get rid of blackheads?
There are several ways, and as always, I stick to the natural and home remedies.
Egg White Mask
For this mask, you will need to separate the egg white from the egg yolk.
You need a facial tissue (you can use toilet papers as well), small bowl and clean towel.
Start by washing your face, and then apply a thin layer of egg white over your skin.
Apply facial tissue or toilet paper, and let it dry.
Apply second and third layer, and let the mask dry out properly in a natural way.
Gently peel the layers, wash your face and pat it dry.
Honey and Milk
Simply put, there is no skin problem that little honey cannot solve.
For this how to get rid of blackheads list, I will use a honey and milk mask.
You need one teaspoon of milk and one tablespoon of honey.
Mix the two ingredients, and then heat up the mixture for five seconds in a microwave oven.
Apply the paste on your skin, and place clean cotton onto your face.
Let the cotton stay on your face for 15 minutes, and then peel it off.
Rinse the mask with cold water.
Oatmeal and Yogurt
This mask is not only good for getting rid of blackheads, but also for prevention.
I promise you instant result.
What you need is two tablespoon of oats, and three tablespoons of yogurt.
You can add just a few drops of lemon juice if you like.
Mix the ingredients into a paste, and then apply it to your face.
Let it dry for several minutes, and then rinse with cold water.
All you need to do is arrange a tomato on your face.
It is that simple.
Get one medium sized tomato, mash it with a work, or use your hand, and then apply the mask on your blackheads.
Rub the affected area for 2 minutes, and then let it dry for 15 minutes.
Rinse and enjoy the benefits.
If you didn’t know, clay is one of the best natural skin remedies you can find.
For centuries, clay has been used in alternative medicine for treating a number of skin ailments.
Clay has electrical charge properties when wet, meaning it can draw out oils of your pores.
Additionally, clay provides a number of minerals for your skin, making it healthy and shiny, all while improving circulation of blood through your face.
All you need is one tablespoon of bentonite clay and water or apple cider vinegar.
Water is a simple choice, but for a little kick, you can use apple cider vinegar instead.
Mix the ingredients into a paste, apply to face, and wait for 20 minutes.
Use lukewarm water to rinse your face.
Turmeric and Mint
Another great home remedy that will help you get rid of blackheads is the turmeric and mint mask.
This remedy provides both instant and long-term solution.
You need three teaspoons of mint juice and two teaspoons of turmeric powder.
Once you have a smooth paste, apply all over your face, and leave it dry there for 10 minutes.
Wash your skin with water.
There is simply no way of avoiding baking soda when you think of home remedies for anything, including getting rid of blackheads.
The small granules of baking soda work wonder for your skin pores.
One thing to note never leaves baking soda to stay for long on your face.
For this mask, you need one teaspoon of baking soda and water.
Apply the paste on your face, but let it stay there only for five minutes.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Rinse with cold water.
