What is the root of this problem of getting blackheads on nose over and over again? You may have taken infinite treatments to cure them medically by visiting dermatologists, but the problem still remains the same. Lack of self care. The permanent solution to it is applying homemade face masks for blackheads and pimples, regular application of which has the potential to eradicate these blemishes forever. However, I always prefer discussing the causes before treatment. (smirk!) Let us have a fleeting glimpse of blackheads and its causes, before getting onto the facial mask remedies.
Causes of Blackheads
Those teeny-weeny, dark-colored spots caused by a tiny plug on the mouth of a pore on the skin are known as blackheads. They are created as a result of excessive oil on the skin surface, and soon coagulate with other impurities within the skin. There can be a number of causes for blackheads such as stress, oil-based products, pollution, unauthorized use of pills, low-quality beauty products, etc. With so many causes of blackheads, the hormones are bound to get imbalanced! While oil-based products leave no pores unclogged, combating those blackheads is no more a difficult thing to do. Trust me, with various homemade face masks for acne and blackheads, it is extremely easy to get rid of blackheads in the utmost natural way.
Homemade Facial Masks for Treatment of Blackheads
Whoopee! Homemade facial masks is what I can vouch the most on. I never knew things like cucumber, honey and lemon could be used in making facial masks to treat those innumerable skin problems. Astonished to see these eatables in the treatment of blemishes! This is what the power of nature is. With easy homemade facial masks having all ingredients to naturally cure your skin, why go for those expensive and toxic beauty products to get rid of the blemishes? In order to treat them, you just have to learn how to make homemade face masks for blackheads that provide a fool-proof solution to all skin disorders. Having categorized them for all types of skin, allow me to share some easy homemade face masks for blackheads which are no less than a magic wand:
For Dry Skin
Banana and Yogurt Face Mask: All you need is a mashed banana and four tablespoons of yogurt mixed smoothly. Leave it applied on your face for approximately fifteen minutes, and rinse off. There you have an instant softness as well as a hydrated skin. The power of yogurt is that it removes all the dead skin cells, thereby, opening your skin to freshness. Let it breathe, mate!
Honey and Egg Face Mask: Honey is considered as the most natural astringent that effectively moisturizes your skin. All you’ve got to do is separate the yolk from an egg, and mix the yolk with just 1 tablespoon of honey. Stir it to make it smooth and flowing, and apply it. Leaving it for approximately fifteen minutes, and rinsing off will give you that glowing skin in the nick of time. Thanks to honey!
For Oily Skin
Cucumber and Yogurt Facial Mask: Did you know that cucumber is a wonderful option to reduce wrinkles? That makes it my favorite facial mask as I have an oily skin. So, in order to make it, you have to peel one cucumber and blend it. With just a tablespoon of yogurt added to the blended cucumber, you need to blend the mixture to make it smooth. Apply it, and leave it for some ten minutes. This is a kind of mask that needs to be removed with lukewarm water. Voila! There you have a soothed skin, and a drastic change in your skin tone as well. Cucumber face mask is one of the easiest, and the most effective facial masks for treating blackheads at the quickest!
Lemon and Oatmeal Facial Mask: You need a blender to mix one cup of oatmeal and one teaspoon of lemon juice. You could also use a tablespoon of yogurt to make a paste of it. Blend the mixture properly and apply it all over the face, except for the eye area. Leave it for some fifteen minutes, and rinse off with warm water. The key purpose of using lemon is that, the citric acid content in it tightens the skin, thus, removing blackheads in good order.
For Combination Skin
Carrot and Honey Mask: For skin not totally dry, but slightly towards the oilier domain, this mask can do wonders in the treatment of blackheads. All you need is some carrot juice and just a small quantity of honey. Mix it, and pat it on the skin. Leave it for 10 minutes, and rinse off. The vitamin A content in carrot will do all it takes to treat blackheads in the most effective way.
Revitalizing Mask: This one is considered as one of the best homemade face masks for blackheads and pimples, chiefly because of its vitamin content. If you aren’t satisfied with vegetables, you could make this mask with the help of 1 capsule each of vitamins E, D, and A, along with 1 tablespoon of yeast. Squeeze the contents of all the capsules with a pin-prick, and mix them well with yeast. Apply it, and leave it on the face for 30 minutes. Rinse off, and stop worrying. A few applications of this face mask on a daily basis is a terrific remedy to get rid of blackheads naturally.
Nature may be a bit on the slower side, but it is acknowledged for its unfailing solutions for all problems. The homemade face masks for blackheads discussed here may not chuck the blackheads out in a single go, but they make sure that the blackheads do not return to their original place. I am not totally averse to skin treatment products available in the market, but when every inch of your skin is more than sensitive, why not let the nature prove its mettle?
