Among the most common aesthetic problems that we have to face, we undoubtedly find blackheads . They mainly form on the forehead, nose and chin and can be difficult to remove.
These are dead cells that mix with facial sebum and oxidize, taking on a dark color. Although many think that blackheads are directly associated with acne, they form because of oily skin.
Below we list 5 effective remedies to remove blackheads at home and without resorting to expensive treatments.
Facial cleansing . Adopting a facial cleansing routine is essential to prevent the formation of blackheads. Excessive sweating and overuse of cosmetic products can promote the appearance of blackheads.
Steam . The best time to remove blackheads is after taking a steam bath. Bring a liter of water to the boil with a little chamomile and rosemary, then expose your face to the steam, being careful not to burn yourself. To remove blackheads, apply light pressure. Repeat three times a week.
Tomato . Cut a tomato in half and rub it on the blackheads to get rid of the impurities. Leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing with plenty of lukewarm water.
Clay . Clay-based facial masks remove impurities, purify pores and prevent the appearance of blackheads.
Prevention . Keep pores clean and “close” them with astringent toners or cold water rinses.
