This simple and low-cost blackhead home remedy is easy to prepare, and you just have to hunt for three ingredients that can be readily found in your kitchen.
You can use this home remedy for blackheads and acne as a scrub or mask. The ingredients you need are:
- 2 tablespoons oatmeal
- 2 tablespoons natural yogurt or 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
Ground oatmeal works as an effective and gentle cleanser. It gently exfoliates away dead skin cells which clog up your pores. It also removes surface dirt and absorbs impurities.
Natural yogurt or lemon juice has anti-bacterial properties. Yogurt softens the skin and refines the pores. Honey helps the skin to retain moisture while treating acne at the same time.
Stir all of the ingredients in a clean bowl. Mix well until you get a sticky mixture. Apply to face using a brush. Leave the mixture on the face for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the mask starts to harden.
Wetting your hands with warm water, gently scrub your skin using circular motions. Rinse the mask off with warm water. Pat dry with a soft, non-abrasive towel.
To complete your home skincare regimen, apply a moisturiser containing natural ingredients such as evening primrose oil. This blackheads home remedy not removes blackheads, it will also leave your skin glowing after you are done!
