There are many types of pimples and blackheads are among them. Blackheads are small, dark spots on the skin that usually form on the face. Blackheads can also appear on the back, chest, arms, neck, and shoulder. Blackheads are caused by clogging of the skin’s pores which is usually caused by sebum and dead skin cells. Blackheads are actually the first stage of an acne breakout and it is important that you pay attention in getting rid of them. Even though they are not that visible compared to acne, blackheads are still one of the major speed bumps hindering you from achieving a radiant and blemish-free face.
Exfoliating is the best way to keep your face blackhead-free. However, we must always remember that over exfoliating is harmful to our skin. When exfoliating our skin from blackheads, it would be best to use homemade remedies. Aside from being made from organic materials, natural remedies for blackheads are way cheaper than dermatologist-recommended treatments.
Tomatoes have long been proven to have antiseptic properties that dry up blackheads faster. Using them to get rid of blackheads is also very easy. Simply peel and mash a small tomato and apply it over the blackheads before going to bed. Leave them overnight before washing your face with lukewarm water in the morning.
Honey and cinnamon powder mixed together to form a paste is another homemade remedy that can get rid of blackheads. Apply the mixture on your face and rub gently. Wait for an hour before washing them off. Honey and cinnamon mixture is also best in exfoliating dirt and dead skin cells in your face.
Raw eggs are also effective home remedy in getting rid of blackheads. By using only two egg whites, you can say goodbye to your blackheads. Beat the egg whites and add one tablespoon of honey. Put on the mixture to the affected area and leave it for 30 minutes before washing it with warm water.
