A lot of people are trying to have a cleaner and shinier face in a natural and more economic way. However, there are a lot of obstacles. Our skin is exposed to all kinds of influences. Our faces tell us what is happening under the skin and what the general condition of our bodies is. These are several homemade recipes for removal of pimples and blackheads.
Pimples are small, hard, white or yellowish bumps. They are caused by different factors. Some have to do with the products we use, genetics and skin types.
Medicinally known as closed comedones, blackheads are formed when dead layers of the skin and fat (a product of the sebaceous glands) block the hair follicles. When this fat is spread onto the skin surface, which is exposed to air, it oxidizes, and creates black dots, known as blackheads. They are a common case with people who have oily skin and those experiencing hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy), and they appear mostly on the cheeks, nose and chest.
Luckily, there are few things which you can do in order to eliminate them and improve the look of your skin. Natural medicines, however, are not some kind of a miracle, so be ready to invest a little bit of time and be patient in the process of their removal.
Get rid of pimples and blackheads with the help of homemade products
You can easily do your own personal spa treatment at home. The steam will open up the pores and this is one of the best ways to get rid of pimples and blackheads. Pour boiling water in a big vessel and you can add several drops of essential oil from lavender, chamomile, rosemary and lemon. Put a big towel over your head and place your face over the vessel for 5 to 10 minutes. If you see that the pimples and blackheads softened after the treatment, you can easily pop them. Repeat this process at least once a week.
Alternative solution: Soak the towel in warm water, strain it and then put it over your face for a few minutes and this has a similar effect as the steaming.
A pilling from oat mash
In order to treat your face properly, supply it with nutrients. You can make your own pilling at home:
Mix equal parts from raw honey and oat. Apply it onto your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Before removing it, massage your face gently for a few minutes. Wash off the pilling with lukewarm water.
You can also add kaolin clay which has a lot of benefits, including antibacterial detoxification properties. Kaolin clay can be used on a daily basis and it will help you cleanse the skin and remove the dirt from the pores.
It can be combined with water to create a thick paste. Mix one part of water with three parts of sodium bicarbonate to make the paste. Leave the mask onto the face until it dries off and then wash it off. This treatment is very useful after the steaming process. Instead of sodium bicarbonate, use kaolin clay to make the paste.
Apple cider vinegar
This is also a good ingredient for cleansing your face. After the steaming process, apply a little bit of apple cider vinegar and leave it to dry. Do not wash off.
