Who doesn’t want smooth, glowing skin. One that is free of zits, acne and blackheads. We may be following our weekly scrubbing and facial routine, but what we never seem to get rid of are the stubborn blackheads.
Blackheads or whiteheads center around your nose and the open pores on its sides. And its just impossible to talk to someone from up close without drawing their attention to the craggy, blackhead-ridden surface of your nose. You try in vain to pop them up with your finger tips, but they end up looking more prominent than ever. It’s not feasible to rush to a parlour every time blackheads surface on your skin, and such things as blackhead removing strips and creams on the market can only do so much.
We say it is possible to completely get rid of blackheads from your skin, and flaunt a gorgeous, spot-free skin. You just need to adapt this magical, but super easy 3 ingredient homemade scrub recipe, and your blackheads will vanish forever. Like magic.
2 tbsp Baking soda
1 tbsp Lemon juice
2 tbsp Raw milk
Method of preparation:
Mix all the ingredients well, and your blackhead removal scrub is ready. The primary ingredient baking soda acts as an abrasive to remove the blackheads and whiteheads, add to it the astringent quality of lemon. Raw milk nourishes the skin by moisturising it.
Make a thick paste and apply it on the affected areas, particularly your nose and chin where the blackheads are concentrated. Leave it on for 5 minutes, or until the pack is semi-dry.
Further on, wet your fingers and massage the area in circular motion. Your pores will get unclogged in the process, and even the dead skin cells will be eliminated. If your blackhead problem is rampant, repeat this exercise at least twice a week. End the ritual by applying a cleanser and toner.
