What causes blackheads are open pores, formation of coil, clogging of these open pores by oils and dirt and the repetition of this process. The only way to get rid of blackheads is to first take out the dirt and coil, clean the pores and then somehow shrink the pore size to keep more dirt from clogging the pores in the future. While shrinking the size of pores is not something easy, repeating some steps from time to time will definitely give desired results. Let us start with the remedies then! *Before doing any of the remedies, remember to steam your face for 2 minutes to open up the pores of your skin.
Remedy 1- Natural scrub
Materials needed- Rice powder (2 table spoons, semi-fine), 2 small table spoons of salt, 1 tablespoon of coffee and half a lemon.
Directions- Mix all the ingredients and use it to scrub the affected areas. Small blackheads would come out in one try but for bigger blackheads you’ll need to use the scrub for 2 to 3 days.
Remedy 2- Pulling them out with a wax strip!
Materials- Wax strip (cut up a bigger wax strip into smaller pieces), gelatin (two teaspoons), hot water and lemon.
Directions- Pour some water into the gelatin and mix them, in a bowl. After the gelatin dissolves, use a brush to spread the gelatin onto the wax strip. Use the lemon to clean out the surface of the affected area and then put the strip on the affected area. Let it dry off completely and then pull it out like you would normally pull out a wax strip.
Remedy 3- Peel off mask
Materials- One egg white, lemon and tissue papers.
Directions- Take one egg white into a bowl and add lemon to it. mix well and then, using a soft brush, apply the mixture onto the affected area and cover with a tissue. Apply a double coat to make a better mask. Then pull out the mask.
You will be left with smooth, soft, shiny and clear skin!
