Blackheads are dirty, tiny black spots that make home on the skin of your face, especially your nose. These are mostly the result of dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells, which clog the pores of the skin through which it breathes.
Here are a few home remedies that can help you prevent or control or remove blackheads: Wash your face Don’t be too harsh on your skin. But do wash it twice or thrice with a good facewash. Use a scrub at least thrice a week. Exfoliate Use gentle exfoliaters on your face as too rough a use can harm your skin too. But do use them once a week to remove blackheads.
Taking steam on your face loosens the blackheads, making it easier to remove them. Take a mixture of lemon, honey and add some sugar to it. Rub it gently on your skin till the sugar melts on your face and acts as a natural scrub.
You can also use a mixture of ground oats with a tiny pinch of salt and olive oil. While applying both these solutions, keep them for about 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
