Blackheads are an eyesore to everyone and popping them out means a hell lot of pain. No time for facials or nose strips? Checkout some sure-fire DIY home-remedies for a blackhead-free spotless face.
Blackheads are tiny bumps on the skin usually black in colour resulting due to clogged pores. Our skin accumulates a lot of dirt, grime, dead skin and oil over the day. These things when trapped in the skin’s open pores make them clogged and end up in a bumpy look. Over time, when the skin is exposed to air, these clogged pores get oxidized, giving them a black appearance.
The professional estheticians at The Makeover Place have collated the top 5 sure-fire ways to clear out blackheads at home.
Before moving to home remedies, make sure to inculcate these 5 tips in your skincare routine to avoid getting blackheads, whiteheads or acne.
Including exfoliators in your skincare regimen sloughs off dead skin and grime from your face. Your prime focus should be the blackhead infested area when you are exfoliating. Try using a natural scrub or invest in good brands for a glowing and clean skin. Exfoliation should be done once a week.
2. Clean-ups/ Facials
Getting a regular facial once a month from the best beauty salon in Downtown Toronto could help you keep a check on your blackheads. Facials such as Hydrafacial treatment, Digital Detox or any specialized facial offer a refreshing way for younger-looking and radiant skin.
Consult an experienced esthetician near you and get a facial according to your skin type and lifestyle. Skincare professionals at The Makeover Place make sure that your skin gets rid of deep-seated debris, impurities and your natural glow is restored.
3. Right Products
Don’t pick random products from any store even if they are offering high discounts. Always pick a product that suits your skin and is non-comedogenic.
Having a blackhead or acne-prone skin? Consult professionals at The Makeover Place if you want any assistance in making the right choice of products.
Always clean your face properly before calling a day off. Your skin attracts dirt, grime and other small particles once you step out of the home. This clogs your pores. Also, remove your makeup before going to sleep else it will not only clog the pores but will also result in blackheads and breakouts.
5. Clean laundry
Clean your pillow covers and bed sheets as frequently as possible. Dirt and grime from your face stick on these things when you sleep. So, washing them regularly is necessary for a clean face and ensures that dirt does not get transferred back to your skin.
Let’s now have a look at the DIY home remedies.
1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is a universal cleanser. Scrubbing a paste of baking soda and water on the infected area helps you get rid of blackheads. It is always advisable to do a patch test first near your jawline.
Having stubborn blackheads? Steaming is an effective way to get rid of those stubborn blackheads. Steaming makes your face sweat which softens the pores. This makes it easy to work upon stubborn blackheads and remove them permanently.
Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C and A that help in skin brightening and make it glow. Tomatoes have pore shrinking and oil-absorbing properties that help to clean the face. Cut and apply a tomato slice on the blackhead infested area or you can even apply tomato pulp all over your face. Tomato is a secret beauty wand for people with oily skin.
4. Salt, lemon and honey
Lemon is a natural astringent and bleach. Honey on the other hand is the best natural moisturizer and antibacterial agent. Lemon juice when mixed with honey and fine granules of salt act as a natural and non-abrasive exfoliator for your skin. This mixture not only helps to remove blackheads but moisturizes the area as well. You can also use sugar crystals but then, scrub very gently.
5. Green tea
Green tea is well-known for absorbing impurities and removing them from your skin. Grind and make a paste of green tea leaves (one teaspoon of leaves would work) by adding few drops of water. Apply the paste on the affected areas and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water and don’t forget to moisturize after that.
