We want clear skin, sans the blackheads, blemishes, dark spots and acne scars- yes, men and women across the world dream of having clear skin, but only a few of us are blessed with the same. If you have blackheads and want to get them removed, chances are you would head to a salon, pay a bomb for their services and get it removed. What if I told you there are three ways to get the removals done at home? Sounds interesting? Read ON!
I shall ask you to get an egg white, a tablespoon of honey and a pinch of cinnamon powder. Mix them well and apply the concoction all over your face. Eggs have elastin and collagen boosting properties and also helps rip away the dead skin cells, bacteria and grime hidden in the pores of your skin. Honey is a natural moisturizer which helps keeps the skin soft, supple and nourished. Cinnamon with its antioxidants helps fight free radicals that damage our skin. When the paste is dry, in circular motions under cold water you shall wash it off and pat the skin dry. This should be done thrice a week for best results to attain.
Instead of buying commercial blackhead removal strips from pharmacies and beauty shops, why don’t you make your own? Once again, the good old egg white would be needed here, along with a white paper towel. Whisk the white of the egg and dip into it a thin strip of the paper towel (band aid size) and place the wet paper towel on the area to be cleansed. Once dry, remove it as though you are pulling out a medicated tape from your skin- be gentle though. This process takes time, so I would ask you to be patient- two weeks and you would see the difference.
A tablespoon of baking soda which would help with abrasive actions, a tablespoon of raw milk to provide protein and nourishment to the skin, and a dash of lime juice for the vitamin supply your skin needs- mix them all well and apply over the face. Give it ten minutes and then gently in circular motions scrub the mix off from the face. You can do this only twice a week and not more than that, since the granules of baking soda can be too abrasive if overdone.
