5 natural ways to get rid of blackheads at home
Blackheads are second on the list of most annoying conditions that affect your face after acne. They are caused due to the excess release of sebum (oil created by the sebaceous glands that keeps skin supple) and it clogging the pores along with dead skin cells.
Blackheads are not caused by dirt, so scrubbing the skin off your face is not going to help you removing those blackheads. Blackheads are caused when the mixture of sebum and dead skin cells oxidises on an open pore, when it comes in contact with oxygen and turns black.
There are some remedies that you can try at home to try and get rid of blackheads, but do remember, some of the remedies may make your skin dry and it will produce more oil to smoothen it and in turn more blackheads will form. So use each of the remedies mentioned here not more than 2-3 times a week.
1 Egg white mask
Egg Whites are very useful to form a temporary mask in order to tighten the pores on your face and reducing the chances of blackheads forming. As egg whites area also high in proteins nutrients, they will also prevent your skin from drying.
Apply the separated egg white in a thin layer on your face. Then place a clean towel or face tissue over the mask and gently press it onto your face. Now carefully apply a second layer on the tissue paper itself, after the first layer dries. When this mask dries, your face will feel like tightening and it is supposed to happen.
Now remove the mask and wash your face with water and pat and dry. Now apply some moisturiser as usual.
