Ways to Remove Blackheads
Who doesn’t hate blackheads? Those black dusty layers on the skin pores are something which no one wants to see their face. With all the pollution and dust around, it’s just impossible to avoid blackheads. But we can always clean them and get away with them temporarily. So here are some of the ways by which we can do to get rid of those blackheads:
- Lemon juice
Lemon juice contains citric acid which cleanses your skin and opens clogged pores of your skin. All you have to do is squeeze some lemon juice in a dish and dab it on the blackheads using cotton swabs. Let it dry for 10 minutes and then rinse with clean water.
- Brown sugar, honey and lemon juice
Mix 1 tablespoon brown sugar, two tablespoon lemon and 1 tablespoon of honey together. Apply the mixture on the blackheads and massage it on your face for a few minutes. Rinse with clean water.
Turmeric is said to have anti-fungal properties. Adding turmeric powder to one tablespoon of coconut oil and then applying it as a mask helps to remove blackheads. Let the mask dry for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off.
- Aloe vera
Aloe vera helps in soothing the skin and cleans the pores of the skin. It even controls the oil production of the skin which in turn helps to get rid of the blackheads. Extract the aloe vera pulp and apply straight to your face. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Honey not only tastes good but is also good for blackheads removal. It’s antibacterial and antifungal and helps remove impurities from the skin. Heat honey until it is warm (not too hot that it burns your skin). Dab it onto the blackheads and leave it for 10 minutes. Clean it with a clean cloth and then wash your face.
