As if acne and open pores weren’t enough that one has to deal with blackheads too?
Try as you might with the never-ending supplies of nose strips, but those stubborn blackheads just won’t go away!
If you are in the same miserable boat, it’s time to stop worrying because you are about to get your hands on some of the most amazing and foolproof DIY blackhead masks.
Easy to make, safe to use, and perfect for blackhead removal!
1. Egg Whites and Lemon – The Ultimate Blackhead Fighters
It is no surprise that eggs and lemons are two of many such ingredients that are loaded with health and nutritional benefits. From skin concerns to internal bodily problems, they’ve got you covered.
For this blackhead mask, all you need is a single egg white, half a lemon, and a facial brush to mix it up.
After mixing, apply the mixture to your nose or even your whole face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Once dried, wash it off with lukewarm water.
You may be wondering how or why this works. Eggs are known to have natural astringent qualities that help shrink your pores and make your skin spot-free. While on the other hand, lemon is natural bleaching agent that helps brighten your skin.
2. Activated Charcoal and Gelatin – The Miracle Duo
Lately, activated charcoal has been seen being hyped up on social media and beauty blogs as THE ultimate blackhead remover due to its strong absorbent qualities. It absorbs all the sebum from your skin and peels off stubborn blackheads.
Gelatin, on the other hand, contains glutathione, an antioxidant that fights free radicals and helps protect your skin.
To make the mask you need 1 teaspoon activated charcoal, 1 teaspoon gelatin and 1 teaspoon water. Melt all three ingredients over a double boiler, mix it together and apply on your nose once the mixture is cooled. Leave it for 10-15 minutes and then peel the mask off.
Make sure to wash your face and pat dry afterwards.
Try these blackhead masks at home and prepare to be rid of blackheads for a long time, if not forever!
