In medical terms blackheads are known as ‘comedones’, and these pesky pore cloggers appear as tiny black bumps on the nose, chin and forehead . The primary difference between the blackhead and whiteheads is that the pore is open, hence it is exposed to oxygen, which in turn makes it turn dark.
Clearing out clogged pores and (permanently) removing blackheads can be a process that is pretty daunting. If you’re like me, you’ve probably tried everything from Biore pads, to exfoliating, extraction, and facial masks…without any permanent results. Luckily, I’ve found (and tried) an incredibly simple home remedy that works wonders and leaves your skin feeling brand new!
Remove blackheads with this simple recipe:
There is one simple and very effective remedy that will help you get rid of the boring blackheads.
You will need:
- Half a lemon (which can be juiced)
- 3 drops of honey
Drop the honey on the lemon, rub it all over your face. Try to focus more on the problematic areas. Leave it for 5-7 minutes and wash with cold water afterwards.
You will notice the positive results immediately. Do this twice weekly.
How does it work?
Lemon has acidic properties and that helps in the removal of the dead skin, allowing new growth of skin. This way the pores will be unclogged, the skin clear and the blackheads reduced.
Honey is a natural antibiotic and is good for removal of dirt from skin pores. Additionally, honey hydrates and tightens the skin pores and gives a clearer complexion. It contains antioxidants, antiseptic, and antibacterial characteristics that destroy germs or clears the clog pores.
This natural remedy can be different for different skin types. It depends on your skin type, how often you will use the remedy. Try it 2 to 3 times in a week to see its effect.
