There is nothing worse to a complexion then having it peppered with little black spots that are very noticeable. If you want to get rid of blackheads your first idea is probably to push, pinch, squeeze and remove the blackhead, but truth be told you're only damaging your skin further, leading to pock marks and scars.
To get rid of blackheads, you will need:
- Lime Juice
- Mild Soap
- Preparing the milk. You will need to boil the milk and set aside to cool. Make sure the temperature is just warm before applying to face.
- Lime Juice. Mix the lime juice with the warmed milk making sure you stir to combine with ingredients well.
- Pre-washing your face. Wash your face with the lime juice and milk mixture. I have noticed the smell is a little obnoxious but try to grin and bear it as this will help reduce and remove the blackheads from your face. Make sure you wash well in areas you are very prone to get blackheads: cheeks, around the nose, forehead and chin.
- Washing your face. Rinse off the prewash mixture and gently wash your face with a mild soap and water. Make sure not to scrub your face hard as this promotes redness and irritation to the skin.
To further prevent a blackhead outbreak on your face avoid using items that have oil in them. Look for products that state they are oil free and non-comedogenic. These items will not clog your pores, and clogged pores lead to blackheads.
