Not everyone is blessed with a face that is free from blackheads. A result of clogging of pores on the surface of the skin, they can also appear due to oil, secretions from the skin or even foreign material. But, the good news is that with a little effort, you can get a face that is glowing and free from these annoying little bumps.
Make the D.I.Y Scrub:
- Take 1 spoon of cane sugar into a bowl.
- Add 1 spoon of honey to this.
- Lastly, add a few drops of lemon and mix all these three things.
Before applying this mixture, the pores on the skin need to be opened. For this purpose, take lukewarm water and dab it on to the desired area with a cotton cloth. Do this for 2 minutes or so.
Next, apply this mixture to the areas you have blackheads. Gently scrub the area in circular motions. Always remember to put the least pressure while doing that. Don’t go over scrubbing since it can make your skin go red and make it produce more oil. Do not scrub for more than three minutes. Wash off thoroughly after the exfoliation process.
Now go ahead with your blackhead removing tool and extract the remaining whiteheads or blackheads. Don’t go overboard by trying to extract the ones which resist coming! You can extract that next time, for sure.
Wash your face again with plain water. The next thing you need to do is close the skin pores. For this, take tea tree oil essential and add a few drops of it to 25ml of water. Take a cotton ball and apply this mixture to the area that was scrubbed. This last step has to be done only once. Later the skin can be washed off with plain water.
Tea tree oil has anti-bacterial properties and it also helps in tightening of the skin pores. All the ingredients together make the skin smooth and there are no side effects. This whole process can be done twice a week for 2 weeks. And later on, once in a week would be enough.
This way the skin can be kept smooth and happy. If you do this regularly then you will be having blackhead-free skin, forever!
