Let me guess, you used cosmetics in the past to remove their unsightly, annoying and sometimes painful blackheads just to they immediately returned, right? It seems that these expensive tapes and facial cleansers only temporary solutions and do not even touch upon the efficiency that can provide some natural methods. This is one of them.
All you need is a lemon, salt and warm water. This method is more effective than anything you buy in the store, and your blackheads will not go back, at least some concrete for a long time.
In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of warm water.
- Apply the mixture to your entire face, apply a larger amount on the areas with blackheads.
- Take a warm, wet cloth and gently apply the mixture on the skin in a circular motion. In this way, massage the skin with warm towel for 5 minutes. Re-heat the cloth with warm water if it starts to cool.
- Let the mixture stand on the skin for 5 minutes, then wash your face with cold water – as much as you can handle the cold.
You may need to repeat this process a few more times during the week, but it will remove those nasty blackheads and prevent re-occurrence.
Why is this effective?
Salt is an antibacterial agent that helps cleanse and unclog pores. Lemon juice contains citric acid which helps fight germs and bacteria and thus cleanses the skin. Warm water also helps open the pores. All together, it’s like an expensive chemical peels, or even remotely bad for your skin.
