We have all seen many adverts on television and social media for the various brands of blackhead removers and blackhead extractors, and although they seem like the easy way to remove the unsightly blackheads on your face, the sad fact of the matter is that most of them just don’t work. In fact, if these products are used incorrectly, they can end up damaging your skin. in my opinion to avoid something you should know at first the causes of it, so if you know the causes of blackheads you can easily avoid it without needing any type of treatments. Anyway the good news is there’s no need to spend money at all buying these products because there are numerous blackhead removal masks you can make at home to get rid of blackheads permanently. Here are eight that you can try at home for clearer skin.
1. Lemon juice
Lemon juice can be used for a lot of things. From bleaching hair to lightening freckles, the acid from the lemon juice tends to have a profound effect on beauty. The same thing goes for its use as a blackhead remedy. Squeeze some lemon juice onto a cotton ball, then smear it on your blackheads. To amplify the effect, mix it with a little honey, then wash it off after 15 minutes.
2. Baking Soda
You can combine a little baking soda and water to make a powerful exfoliant scrub that can remove blackheads on nose. While the pH of baking soda may not play any role in blackheads, the main reason why baking soda works is because of it’s small, fine granules that can remove anything clogging your pores. Mix equal amounts of baking soda and water to form a thick paste and use it to cleanse your skin. You will have smoother skin and fewer blackheads.
3. Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is known to removes many “black” skin problems, like blackheads and black warts. Dab a little of it on your blackheads and let it dry. You don’t need to wash it off. This remedy, which is actually one of the most effective home remedies for blackheads, will remove the clogged sebum from your pores, eliminating the blackish look on your nose.
4. Witch hazel
Witch hazel has also been known for long to clear a lot of skin problems, especially those owing to irritation. Witch hazel usually dries on it own, so it doesn’t act like a blackhead removal mask as the previous home remedies for blackheads do. To apply, douse a cotton ball or cotton pad in the witch hazel liquid. Dab it around your blackheads, and then pitch the cotton ball. This will dry out those pores and improve the look of your skin.
Another food product that works as a natural bacteria killer is honey. In addition to killing bacteria, a honey mask will function the same as blackhead tape, pulling the shallow blackheads from your skin when you remove it. Just warm some honey (any kind will do) and spread on your face. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and peel off. You’ll see wonders after few days.
6. Oatmeal and rose water
These make an excellent exfoliating scrub. This combination is good for getting rid of oil, dead skin cells, and dirt from your skin and will cleanse and prevent future blackheads from forming. Use equal parts of rose water and oatmeal to make a paste that you apply to your skin. Leave the mask on your skin for 15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.
7. Epsom salt and Iodine
You can use a combination of Epsom salt and iodine to quickly soften the dead skin and dirt that are clogging your pores. To make this combination, mix equal amounts of warm water, iodine and Epsom salts and soak a cotton ball in the mixture. Rub the cotton ball over your skin, paying special attention to the spots where your blackheads are.
8. Fenugreek Leaves
There are a few herbs that work well to kill bacteria and fenugreek is one of them. Since blackheads are usually caused by bacterial infections, this makes fenugreek a great blackhead remover. Simply crush fenugreek leaves and then mix them with water until you have a paste that can be spread on your skin. Use each night for 10 minutes and wash off with warm water for healthier blackhead free skin.
As you can see, you don’t have to spend lots of cash to get rid of those blackheads on your nose. You now have eight ways to clean your skin, get rid of blackheads and keep them from returning using nothing but items from your kitchen and bath.
