Blackheads are ugly AF, and it’s probably safe to say we all agree with that statement. They are stubborn and can stretch your pores, another undesirable thing to happen to your skin.
The best solution to any problem is a preventative one. Whether you want to make it at home or buy it at a store, you’ve got options, and that is never a bad thing. Try your hand at some or all of these ideas and see the difference for yourself!
First Things First: DON’T SCRUB: Exfoliating is good. Scrubbing is not good. The difference is in the abrasiveness of your exfoliate of choice. As you can see from the photo below, a brush with long bristles like this one is too harsh for facial skin and can do more harm than good. Stick with only the most gentle exfoliators. The solutions in this article can maintain clear skin, eliminating the need for constant exfoliation.
Egg White | Egg Right: Egg whites are fantastic for combating many skin issues, including blackheads. This easy (and cheap) way to make a face mask literally requires two ingredients: egg white and a bit of coconut or olive oil. Here’s how you do it.
Milk And Honey = Love (And A Distinct Lack Of Blackheads): Honey is so great for your skin, you’ll see it twice in this list. First off, milk and honey makes for a great facial treatment for blackheads, and it’s super easy to make. This video has all the deets to make this at home and save the bucks you’re going to spend going out and showing off your new glow.
A Delicious Cinnamon And Honey Facial: This amazing mask is a miracle in your hand. Simply sprinkle 1/4 of a teaspoon of cinnamon into the palm of your hand and add equal parts honey. Mix this into a paste and leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse your face with warm water. You can also leave this on overnight and rinse in the morning. Both methods are awesome.
Lemon Toner For Tight Pores: Tightening your pores is an important part of preventative maintenance, and it helps keep you from developing new blackheads (no one wants to do the same job twice if they don’t have to, right?). Here’s how to make your own lemon toner.
