No one likes having blackheads, unfortunately they are an inevitable part of having pores in our skin. Dirt gets clogged which causes our pores to stretch. Blackheads can have underlying puss and sebum. Many people squeeze them to get rid of the unsightly black marks which usually occur on the oiliest parts of our face; the t-zone. Squeezing further enlarges the pores making them more prone to be refilled.
Thus the best solution is to prevent the problem from getting worse, and occurring less often. The following footage offers an at home remedy that can be used with different masks made from natural foods which are fantastic in resolving blackhead and large pore problems.
Gentle exfoliation, not scrubbing, is key to good skin care. The solutions that will be discussed in this article and illustrated in the video below provide remedies, that will help to maintain clear skin and will preclude the need for constant exfoliation, which can be irritating.
The first fantastic at-home mask, which you will see illustrated in the footage below is an EGG WHITE MASK. Egg whites can be combined with a small amount of coconut or olive oil, or it can be used by itself. Watch the tutorial, that shows you a great method for application that can be used for these other home remedies.
MILK AND HONEY is the next combo that is amazing at battling those hideous blackheads and providing you with glowing skin. Honey, in and of itself, has remarkable healing properties for the skin, and so the third mask contains it as well. A CINNAMON AND HONEY mixture provides a mask that can do wonders for overall skin maintenance. A paste is created by pouring approximately 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon into your hand and adding an equal amount of honey. As you mix this together it makes a mask that you should leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water, to see those blackheads disappear.
Finally, we all know the importance of a toner to close your pores, thus preventing further dirt from entering. A natural and powerfully effective toner for tightening those pores and preventing blackhead formation is by combining fresh lemon juice and water. Not only is the astringency of lemon effective, but the high concentration of Vitamin C in it, promotes overall skin health as it sinks in, greatly reducing pore size.
