Are you tired of those tiny dark spots appearing on your face or other parts of body? That’s totally fine, because those spots, known as blackheads, don’t do any god to someone’s visual appearance. They form when blocked pores of your skin get filled with skin debris or sebum, which is an oily substance. They’re more common among people with oily skin and in most cases they’re found on face. However, these parameters aren’t mandatory and even those who don’t have an oily skin may suffer from blackheads due to any other reason. They can be classified as first stage acne.
Curing blackheads with home remedies is an easy and safe treatment method that anyone can apply with a little bit of guidance. And to make things even more convenient for you that much needed guidance is given below:
- Tomatoes: The antiseptic properties of tomatoes help a lot in drying up black heads. The method of using it for curing blackheads may sound a little bit crazy, but it’s a good one if you want to get rid of blackheads. Instead of eating tomatoes, you’ll have to apply them physically to blackheads. Just take a small, peeled and mashed tomato and apply it to your blackheads before sleeping. Leave it as it is for the night and wash off in the morning with clean water.
- Lemon: Another quite effective gift from nature to cure blackheads is lemon. Squeeze some drops of lemon in a bowl, add salt and stir the mixture thoroughly. Once done, wash your face with warm water and apply the mixture you created recently to blackheads and leave it over blackheads for 20 minutes. After that wash the face again with warm water.
- Toothpaste: Till now you used your toothpaste for cleaning teeth, but you might’ve never imagined that it can clean blackheads too! If you want to see it in action, apply a thin layer of your toothpaste to blackheads and wash off gently after 25 minutes with warm water. Repeat the process for two weeks and your face will be free from blackheads.
