”How to we get rid of blackheads and whiteheads”

‎”How to we get rid of blackheads and whiteheads”

Maintaining a clear and beautiful

skin, takes time, consistency and

effort. Dermatologist may

recommend lots of products, but

some of them can be expensive and

may actually take a long time to

work. You can, however,

incorporate some home remedies

for blackheads and whiteheads into

your daily beauty regimen and in a

few weeks, you will experience a

drastic reduction or even total

elimination of the problem.

● Toothpaste – Toothpaste is an

effective blackhead and whitehead

remover. Apply a thin paste to your

infected areas and let it sit on your

face for at least 25 minutes. You

will probably feel a burning

sensation when you apply the

toothpaste, but this is normal and

will pass. Once you remove the

toothpaste, the top of your

blackheads and whiteheads will

disappear, but you still need to

thoroughly wash your face to

remove the buildup underneath.

Repeat this home remedy every

other day for two weeks.

● Tomato – Tomatoes have natural

antiseptic properties that dry up

whiteheads and blackheads. Peel and

mash a small tomato. Apply the

tomato pulp to your blackheads and

whiteheads before going to bed.

Leave the tomato pulp on your face

while you sleep and then wash your

face in warm water in the morning.

● Lemon -Wash your face in warm

water. Then, squeeze the juice of

one lemon into a bowl. Add in a

pinch of salt and stir the mixture.

Apply the mixture to your

blackheads and whiteheads. Leave

the mixture on for approximately

20 minutes and then wash your face

with warm water again.

● Lime – You can also use equal

parts of lime juice and cinnamon

powder and apply this mixture to

blackheads. Leave it on overnight

and rinse it off in the morning

to-one cornstarch to vinegar ratio

● Yogurt – Mix three tablespoons of

plain yogurt with two tablespoons

of oatmeal. Add one teaspoon of

olive oil and one tablespoon of

lemon juice to the mixture. Stir the

mixture thoroughly and apply it to

the effective area of the face. Let

the mixture sit for five to seven

minutes then rinse off with cold


● Almond or oatmeal – Mix either

oatmeal or almond powder with just

enough rose water to make a

spreadable paste. Apply it to your

problem areas with your fingertips

first and then apply it to the rest of

your face. Let it set for about 15

minutes and then rinse your face

with cold water.

● Rice – Soak rice in milk for 5

hours and then grind this in a

blender until it is paste-like in

consistency. Use the paste as a

scrub on affected areas of the body.

● Potatoes – Grate raw potatoes and

then rub the area with the mixture.

Wash it off after 15 minutes.

● Fenugreek leaves – Crush some

fenugreek leaves and mix with water

to form a paste. Put this on the face

for 15 minutes and then remove it.

Do this every night to keep your

face free of blackheads.

● Coriander leaves – Mix some

coriander leaves and a little

turmeric powder with water and

form a paste. Use this as a mask to

eliminate blackheads.

● Oatmeal -Grind oatmeal into a

powder in a blender and then add

some rose water. Use this on

affected areas for 15 minutes and

then wash it off with cold water.

● Baking soda – Prepare a mixture

of equal parts of baking soda and

water and rub it onto your face or

other body areas prone to

blackheads. Leave it on for 15

minutes and then rinse it off with

warm water.

● Honey is also good for removing

blackheads. Spread honey on the

affected area and remove it after 15

Never pinch, scrape, poke, press, or

squeeze too hard!
