Easiest ways to remove your blackheads without going to parlour.


Steam would help:

Take steam on your face for three minutes, then gently squeeze out the oil in the clogged pore, using a cotton bud or a blackhead remover. A pH balanced facewash and cleansing packs containing dried orange peel, tomato-puree, and gram flour help keep the face clean.


Go for refreshing packs

: Make a paste of peeled cucumbers by blending in a jar, apply it on the face and leave it for about half an hour. This helps cool and rejuvenates the face and also helps in getting rid of pimples and blackheads.


Use good old honey

: Mix three tablespoon of pure honey and a tablespoon of cinnamon powder and apply this paste evenly on your face. Leave for half an hour and wash off gently with fresh water. Repeat this procedure every day for a couple of weeks to get rid of blackheads.


Yoghurt can do the trick

: You may also mix two tablespoon of yogurt and one tablespoon of powdered orange peel. Massage your face with this paste in gentle circular motion for four-five minutes. Leave as for about 15 minutes and wash your face with water. This helps open up clogged skin pores and is also an effective remedy for blackheads.


Fruity paste for clean skin

: Paste of roasted and powdered pomegranate skin with fresh lime juice helps too. Leave it for 10 minutes before washing off.
