Our skin is the biggest and the most obvious organ of our body. No one can see how we look on the inside, that is why we tend to pay so much attention to our appearance. Every small defect needs to be corrected, every problem of our skin needs to be solved. One of the most common problems is blackheads; we all have them, especially on our T-zone. It can be really tricky to get rid of them unless we use these simple methods:
- Use steam to open your pores. You scrub your face very often, but this does not seem to make a difference? This is because the dirt is already in your pores, and it will not go anywhere. To change this, keep your face above a bowl of hot water. You can even place a towel on your head to make sure that the steam will really be effective. After five minutes of doing this, scrub your face and clean it with cold water. There you go! Clean face without too much effort.
- Use blackhead strips once per week. You can find them in any pharmacy or cosmetic store and they are extremely simple to use. They are not too hard on your skin, so you can use them as often as you like, even though you will not need them every day. There are different formulas; some of them use aloe vera and they are good for sensitive and dry skin, while others contain oil-free products and they are great for oily skin.
- Make your own mask at home. If other things don’t work for you, you can make your own mask from natural products. Mix a teaspoon of baking powder with a teaspoon of honey and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply this on the areas where you have blackheads and leave it for 15 minutes. When you clean it you will notice that your skin is now smooth and glowing!
