Home Remedies for BlackHeads

BlackHeads Treatment At Home


Blackheads
are dark bumps visible on the surface of the skin.

While they are medically harmless, their appearance can be embarrassing.

Blackheads are most common on the face covering the forehead, nose and chin.



















 


Treatment:

Exfoliating can clear your skin from blackheads, use a good facewash or scrub on daily basis.

Lemon and Milk:
Lemon is well known for cleansing purpose. Warm a cup of milk and mix few drops of lemon in it. Use this mixture to wash your face. Due to anti-oxidant quality of both these ingredients you'll see a visible reduction in the amount of blackheads. Use it on daily basis for a week.

 

Cornstarch And Vinegar Mixture:

Cornstarch and vinegar is a commonly used home treatment for blackheads. Pour ¼ to ½ cup of cornstarch into a bowl and add vinegar slowly while stirring. Add the vinegar until the mixture forms a thick paste. Apply the mixture to the blackhead affected areas on your face and leave on for 20 minutes. The mixture will dry to a hard plaster-like substance in the meantime. Rinse it off with warm water, and follow this with a cold water rinse to close the pores.

How It Works?

Cornstarch is a mild astringent, reducing the amount of oil produced temporarily. It also absorbs a large proportion of the oil that is on the surface of the skin at the time of application. Vinegar is an acid, and acids can reverse oxidation. In other words, vinegar can bleach the blackheads, turning them to their original pale clear/yellow color.

For best effects, use this mixture two to three times per week.

Warning

This mixture might not be suitable for people with sensitive skin. You should do a patch test at least 24 hours before applying the face mask, and do not use this remedy if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
