6 Simple Home Remedies To Remove Blackheads

By: Lifestyle Desk

Blackheads form when your skin pores get clogged owing to the accumulation of dirt, dead cells, and oil. This bump is called a ‘comedone’. When the skin over the bump remains closed, it is called a whitehead. When the skin over the bump is open and susceptible to collection of excess oil and grime, it is a blackhead. It is darker and more prominent. Blackheads are also precursors to acne.

It is, therefore, important to care for your skin regularly. Read on to learn 6 simple home remedies to get rid of blackheads naturally.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon has anti-bacterial properties that can be used as an aromatic face mask to halt the growth of bacteria and fungi. It can also be used as a body scrub for a smoother, more glowing complexion apart from eliminating flaky skin as well as acne.

Baking soda

Baking soda isn’t just for baking or keeping your refrigerator smelling fresh. It is amphoteric, which means that it helps neutralize any pH imbalances on the skin, which is the most common cause of acne. Baking soda also has mild anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, which help to reduce the size of pimples.

Egg whites

Egg whites offer numerous firming and toning benefits for the skin. They’re rich in albumin and protein, which have skin toning properties apart from promoting wrinkle-free skin. They are especially good for oily skin and hair since they help tighten skin and minimize pores that secrete too much sebum. This method draws out sebum and pulls out any deep within the pores.

Honey

Honey is made of both antiseptic and antibacterial properties that help remove blackheads by destroying impurities that clog pores, making it another great option for those with acne related blackheads. It is also useful as a natural antibiotic because it hydrates the pores for a clearer complexion.

Green tea

Now, this works wonders since you can drink it to detoxify yourself and apply it for a smooth skin. It not only diminishes oil and irritation on the skin but serves to secure it from future harm. Green tea also protects against sun damage acting on the free radicals and also reduces inflammation. The polyphenols present in green tea slow down the appearance of the signs of aging.
