Black dots – we all have them. From time to time, they can even bother us more than usual. We try different options, from expensive beauty products to simple squeezing to expensive cosmetic services. But bacteria on your hands can do more harm than good. You might get rid of blackheads for a while, but contact of your fingers with the skin of your face can trigger uncomfortable and painful acne. That’s why it’s better to enlist the help of a number of handy remedies that will help your skin. And you can find plenty of them in your kitchen.
Baking soda and water
Baking soda is perhaps the cure for everything you can think of. Not only is it a great helper in the home, but also in skin care. It can neutralize and remove all dirt and oil, including dead skin cells. The procedure is quite simple. Prepare yourself:
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
- 2 tablespoons water
Mix the two ingredients together and try to make a uniform, smooth paste. Apply it to your skin and spread it all over your face. Massage for a while and then rinse with warm water. Don’t forget the moisturiser. Repeat the treatment two to three times a week.
Brown sugar, honey and lemon juice
The combination of brown sugar, honey and lemon juice creates an effective skin scrub. Simply mix all three ingredients in a ratio of brown sugar, two tablespoons of lemon juice and one tablespoon of honey. Then massage the mixture into your face in circular motions. Try to be gentle so that the brown sugar does not damage your skin. Rinse and apply a nourishing cream. You will see how silky smooth your face will be.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil or tea tree oil is truly a miracle cure. Many people are convinced of its effects and rightly so. You can find it in almost every pharmacy. This natural beauty product effectively kills bacteria and of course blackheads in no time. Apply a little tea tree oil on a cotton ball and clean the problem area on your face. Repeat several times a week.
We all know that drinking green tea is good for our skin, but if you want to really destroy blackheads, cut open a green tea bag and mix it with a small teaspoon of water. Massage the mixture into your face and leave it on for about 3 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and apply a nourishing cream. Green tea helps to reduce the oiliness of the skin, making blackheads disappear quickly. Don’t be afraid to experiment with home remedies. Not everything that is edible needs to be used only in the kitchen.
