Blackheads are simply disgusting to look at and so annoying to remove. We’ve all been there…multiple times, haven’t we? A blackhead is born when an open pore is clogged by excess secretion of sebum, dead skin cells, makeup, dust and pollution which gives them that black appearance. Besides looking hideous, the worst part is that when blackheads get infected with the presence of bacteria, they become pimples. Blackheads are often the result of our lifestyle, so deeply removing makeup every night, managing our stress levels and following a healthy diet are a few of the lifestyle changes that can help us fight them. You can easily get rid of blackheads at home without buying expensive treatments or even worse, picking your face! Below we present 3 super simple ways to ban them real fast:
#1 Egg White Pore Strips
The first simple step you can try to remove your blackheads is to gently pull them out. An easy homemade egg white pore strip will tighten pores enough so you can unclog them before it’s too late, and they become a breakout. All you will need is 1 egg and toilet paper. First things fist, separate the egg white from the yolk. Wisp the egg white until bubbles are formed. Then, get a perfectly clean concealer brush to apply the egg white in the problem areas. Apply toilet paper on top of the egg white layer and repeat this same process about 4 times. Next, let the strip dry for 15 minutes. Lastly, peel away the strip and rinse with warm water.
#2 Clay Mud Masks
A bentonite clay mask can help you literally dry impurities out of your skin. There are a number of alternatives in the cosmetic industry, but they all have one thing in common: they deeply remove all the excess oil and unwanted residues, leaving you with a truly cleansed skin. It’s simple! A clay mud mask is nothing but a tablespoon of powdered clay and apple cider vinegar mixed together. You can remove the mask as soon as it is dry to the touch.
#3 Lemon Toner
Now that your skin is cleansed and blackhead-free, you may be wondering how to prevent blackheads moving forward. The answer is: toner. If you don’t have one in your skincare routine, be sure to shop for one, or make it yourself! As simple as it may sound, you may already have all you need to prepare a homemade toner in your kitchen! Just mix 5 parts of distilled water and 1 part of lemon. Lemon is a natural astringent that will shrink your pores and prevent blackheads. If you have oily skin, make sure to use this toner every single morning and night for best results.
