As your skin’s pores get blocked by excessive sweating from the sebaceous glands, grease and keratin are oxidized and produce a type of blackhead that consists of a deep lesion with a dark colored orifice.
Anyone can get blackheads and they can be annoying for aesthetic reasons, simply because they tend to mostly appear on your face and especially on your nose.
Contrary to popular belief, blackheads aren’t always related to acne but are rather a matter of excess grease. In other words, they are very common when you have an increase in sweat. To get rid of blackheads on your face, you need to do a facial cleanse. There are various products that are definitely useful for this in stores, and also home treatments that will make these products even more effective.
You should know that in order to get rid of blackheads, you need to have a cleaning routine, wash your face often, and remove makeup every night. It is completely wrong to “squeeze them” until they go away because this only damages your skin.
Tip #1: Yogurt, Cucumber, and Parsley Mask
Add two tablespoons of natural yogurt, parsley leaves, and a half a cucumber to a blender. Let sit until it is a homogenous paste. Apply it to your face and let sit for 15 minutes. Remove with warm water.
Tip #2: Steam
Heat water in a bowl. Allow for steam to rise, and put your face above it so there is no risk of you getting burnt, but that you get enough steam. Stay there for a few minutes and move away. Immediately put pressure on the area where the blackheads are. Thanks to the heat, your skin will expand and the pores will open, facilitating the cleanse.
You can put cotton balls on your fingers so that there are no marks on your face.
Tip #3: Flavorless Jello and Milk Mask
Pour a tablespoon of milk and add a tablespoon a flavorless jello in a bowl. Mix until it becomes a paste, then heat it for ten seconds. With tongs, put the paste on the places where the blackheads are. Let sit for ten minutes and remove with your hands because the mask will be like a gel.
Tip #4: Lemon Mask
Mix a little bit of lemon juice, almond oil, and glycerin. Apply it every night after removing your makeup. Rinse with warm water.
Tip #5: Honey and Cinnamon Exfoliant
Mix four teaspoons of honey with a powdered cinnamon. Mix until you get a paste and apply it to the places where the blackheads specifically are. Don’t remove it until the next day. Repeat the process for two weeks.
Tip #6: Oatmeal Shake
Pour a cup of oatmeal until you get a powder. Add a half cup of warm water and stir until you get a homogenous mixture. Put it on your face and let sit until it is completely dry. Rinse with warm water and a clean towel.
Tip #7: Apple Mask
Cut a red apple in half, remove the seeds, and leave the skin on. pour it in the blender along with a tablespoon of lemon juice, spread it on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes. Remove with warm water.
