Homemade masks to remove blackheads

The formation of blackheads is a common problem, especially for oily skin in the T-zone prone to acne. With increased secretion of sebum and insufficient cleaning of the face, conditions are created for blocking the free release of skin secretions. These, in combination with dead cells, form blackheads, which could later turn into pus-filled pimples.

How to counteract the formation of blackheads and the easiest way to remove them with natural means?

Homemade masks with natural products are a great way to clean the skin, nourish it and free it from harmful accumulations.

Honey and milk

  • ΒΌ cup fresh milk;
  • 2 tablespoons honey;
  • cotton swabs.

Mix the honey with the milk. Mix them well in a bowl. Apply the mask using the pads, gently rubbing in circular motions. You can leave the tampons on the most affected areas so that they can take effect for a longer time. Then leave the mask on the face for 15 minutes before washing with warm water.

Apply once or twice a week depending on the severity of the problem.

The milk and honey mask works very well on blackheads because of lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant. Honey has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that reduce inflammation and neutralize bacteria.

Eggs and lemon juice

  • 1 egg;
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice;
  • facial brush with rubber bristles.

Mix the beaten egg with the lemon juice.Apply the mask using the brush, gently massaging so as not to injure the face. Do not apply near the eyes and eyebrows. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes. When you feel tightness, it's time to wash it off with cold water. Apply moisturizer.

Do the mask once a week because it is more aggressive.

Cinnamon and Honey

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder;
  • 3 tablespoons of honey.

Mix the two ingredients together. Stir well. Apply the mask with your fingers, massaging in circular motions, focusing on the T-zone. Leave on for 20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water.
