Remove Blackheads At Home

What are blackheads and why do they appear on our face?

The blackheads on your face are the most stubborn form of small pimples that return back even when they are squeezed or poked. To describe blackheads in a more professional language, these can be looked as tiny bumps on your hair follicles. These are caused by an increase of sebum that clogs your follicles and ends up creating these ugly bumps, mostly around your nose and chin.

For someone who wants clear skin, blackheads on the face aren’t a sight they want to carry for the rest of the people to see. There are so many creams and masks available in high-end drugstores that promise a blackhead free-face but unfortunately, nothing works quite effectively other than simple home-based blackhead treatments. And since, now you can’t take a chance of moving out of your house to buy a mask, continue reading to find out how to remove blackheads with everything you have available in your kitchen.

How to remove blackheads with just a few ingredients

We have listed down some very simple and authentic remedies for treating blackheads at home and also to stop them from coming back again.

  • Honey is a champion when it comes to fighting against blackheads

There is nothing safer than honey. This natural product has always conquered all skin issues. Honey is quite effective with treating blackheads as well. Apply raw honey over all the areas that are covered by your blackheads, especially around your nose and chin. Keep it on for about 20 minutes before you wash it off with warm water. Do this daily, as honey has no side-effects. It is also great for your skin so why not try this remedy, daily.

When egg whites and honey are combined together, an enemy of blackheads comes to life.
This mask is so great that you would love us once you try it out. In a bowl, take an egg white and a tablespoon of honey and mix both together. Beat the mixture properly to get a paste like consistency. Apply the mask formed on the affected areas and keep it on for 30 minutes every day. Wash your face with warm water. In a week or so, you will clearly start seeing your skin glow and getting cleaner day by day.

As sour as it is, an application of lemon juice, everyday, is a treat for your skin
It isn’t a secret anymore that lemon juice is one of the best astringents that mother nature has gifted us. It helps remove dead cells from your skin and is also great with blackheads treatment. Before you decide to doze off, take a cotton ball and soak it in plain lemon juice. Apply the cotton ball on areas affected by blackheads. Keep the juice on your skin overnight and then in the morning, wash it off with water. If you have dry skin, add a spoon of olive oil with lemon juice before application. Do not forget to moisturize your face once you have washed it off.

  • Cornstarch and vinegar are two powerful ingredients to treat blackheads

All you need here is a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed properly with a teaspoon of vinegar and there you have it, a cornstarch vinegar mask to get rid of blackheads. Apply the paste-like mixture on your blackheads for at least three times every week. Keep the mixture on for 20 minutes before you rinse your face. This combination is great to absorb all the excess oil on your skin and treat any discoloration caused by blackheads.
