Blackheads occur when the open pores are exposed to air, so the particles contained in them oxidize and turn black. Not only do the blackheads look ugly, but they also can cause further skin problems. How to get rid of them? There are several easy ways, but the most effective ones are the following 10, which are here on our list…
- Nose exfoliation
Exfoliation of the nose will remove dead skin cells and it will also clean the pores. Make a mixture of baking soda and apple cider vinegar, apply it on the nose, wait for it to dry, and then rinse with warm water.
- Facial steaming
Facial steaming will open the pores, making it easier to clean the blackheads. Keep water on heat until it starts boiling, then steam the face until you start sweating.
- Oatmeal exfoliator
This is a healthier alternative than purchasing exfoliators, which are full of chemicals. Make an exfoliator of two tablespoons of oatmeal, three tablespoons of yogurt and a little lemon juice by yourself. Apply it on your face, and gently massage the skin. Leave it to rest for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water.
- Sugar exfoliator
You can make a homemade exfoliatorof oil and brown sugar. Mix a cup of sugar and jojoba oil in a jar. Rub your skin with this exfoliator for a minute or two, then rinse with warm water.
Buy bentonite clay, which can be found in pharmacies. Mix it with apple cider vinegar or water, and apply it to the skin in a thick layer. When it gets dry, rinse with water.
- Egg whites
Egg whites are rich in nutrients that are great for the skin. Apply a layer of egg whites to the skin, and when it dries, apply the next layer. Apply several layers on the nose. Gently remove the dried-up layer with water and wet towel.
- Pore strip
You don’t have to buy pore strips – you can make them yourself at home. Make a mixture of honey and milk, and heat it in the microwave for a few minutes, then apply the mixture on the cotton strips and put them on your nose. Wait for them to dry, and then gently remove them.
- Natural Toner
Make homemade tonic of apple cider vinegar and chopped peppermint. Leave the mix in a cool, dark place for about a week. Strain it, and then put it in the refrigerator.
