A blackhead is a small and dark blemish that result from clogged pores. Blackheads usually grow on faces and it is quite bad actually because faces are pretty much uncovered. People tend to buy creams and skin care products to get rid of them, and of course, there is nothing wrong with that, but this method is quite expensive and we are about to bring you a cheaper alternative. This article is going to shine a light on 3 home remedies that can help you get rid off your blackheads.
1. Egg and lemon facemask
What makes this method quite effective is the ingredients used in it, and this will not only deal with blackheads but pimples as well. As I said, the ingredients are the key to success, lemon is known for having an astringent effect that cleans the skin and terminates bacteria and eggs are capable of removing excess sebum from your face which makes it smoother.
- 1 egg white
- a few drops of lemon juice
This method is quite simple, you only have to mix the egg with the lemon drops and apply the magical blend on your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes, then use warm water to rinse it away. For better results, use this mask twice a week.
2. Strawberry facemask
Who doesn’t love strawberries? I’m sure that almost everyone loves them, and if you do, you’ll probably move them more after you know that they have the ability to get rid of excess sebum and blackheads.
- 5 strawberries
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon of honey
Here’s another simple one for you. Start by mixing together all of the ingredients until you start having a paste. Clean your skin and apply the paste on your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Once the time has passed, use warm water to rinse it off.
3. Yoghurt and lemon facemask
Lemon and yoghurt combination is absolutely amazing, you will get a natural facemask that will not only clean your skin and get rid of excess sebum, but it will also deal with annoying blackheads.
- 2 tablespoons of regular yoghurt
- ½ tablespoon of lemon juice
There is nothing to worry about preparation wise, just mix the ingredients well and apply the mask to your face and let it sit for 20 minutes, then like all of the previous methods, use warm water to rinse it off. Apply this facial mask once a week and it should be more than enough.
