We all want a clean, healthy and glowing skin but sometimes we can’t seem to have it all. We battle against pimples, acnes, scars especially blackheads.
Blackheads often occurs when your pores are clogged with dead cells and excess sebum. Sebum is an oil that makes the skin supple and hydrated.
It contains a dark pigment called melanin, that turns black when oxidized and exposed to air hence they have dark appearance.
Sometimes, normal daily cleansing of the skin can help in getting rid of the blackheads but some are still visible.
So, here is an effective household remedy for battling blackheads.
What you need:
- 1 tbsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Mint Toothpaste
- 2-3 Ice cubes
What you will do:
In a bowl, mix the ingredients together. Mix them until you get a nice paste texture. Then, apply the paste to the areas you want to remove the blackheads and leave it for about 5 minutes or until it is dry. Put some amount of water and massage it gently using the circular motion. Make sure the skin is clean before rubbing the ice cubes which is good to close the pores. Dry your skin using a face towel or tissue and you will see its effectivity.
So, if you wan’t to get rid of your blackheads just follow these steps and you’ll achieve the skin you have been dreaming on for so long.
