Located mainly on the T zone, that is to say the nose, chin, and forehead, blackheads appear when the pores of the skin are clogged with excess impurity and sebum. Fortunately, there are natural solutions to get rid of those little blemishes that hardly anyone spares.
1. LEMON JUICE
On the list of miracle ingredients for chasing blackheads, also called “open comedones”, we find lemon juice in particular. It is indeed known to be cleansing, purifying and healing. On the other hand, its acidity helps regulate the production of sebum, the fat naturally secreted by the skin, which, mixed with dead cells, is responsible for the appearance of its unsightly little clumps. Before going to bed, pat a cotton ball soaked in lemon juice on the areas to be treated and let dry without rinsing. You can repeat this operation once a week.
2. THE TOMATO
In the fruit category, we also find the tomato. After first opening your pores with a facial steam bath, or by placing a washcloth moistened with hot water on your skin, place thin slices of tomatoes on your face and leave on for about 20 minutes. Its sebum-regulating and disinfecting properties make it possible to purify the skin, to clean it in depth, and therefore to fight against its small plugs which, in contact with the air, oxidize and blacken. When the time is up, rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry gently with a towel.
3. SODIUM BICARBONATE
Economical, biodegradable, and non-toxic, sodium bicarbonate, also called baking soda, is a must-have product to have in your bathroom closet. And for good reason. In addition to fighting against yellowing of teeth, this odorless natural powder helps treat blackheads thanks to its cleansing, antiseptic and antibacterial action. To do this, pour two tablespoons of baking soda and the juice of half a lemon into a small container to form a thick paste. Apply it to the T-zone and leave for 20 minutes, before rinsing
4. EGG WHITE
Used as a mask, egg white is a real ally for problem skin, prone to blackheads or acne. Moisturizing and antibacterial, it cleanses, unifies the skin, and eliminates excess sebum, while restoring radiance to the face. The method is simple: just crack an egg in a bowl and isolate the white, without beating it. Then distribute it directly over your entire face, avoiding the eye area, using a brush or with your hands, previously washed. Leave on for about fifteen minutes, rinse with lukewarm water, and finish with a quick shot of cold water to close the pores.
