Natural and Effective Ways to Remove Blackheads!

clip_image002

Blackheads can litter the surface of skin and make an otherwise clear complexion appear dirty and congested. These little black dots result from clogged hair follicles that are packed with pollution, grime, germs, dirt, dead skin cells and sebum resulting in a plug.

The black color comes from the oxidation of any excess oils jammed into the pores. These are most common on the cheeks and the nose, but they can pop up just about anywhere. The good news is that you do not have to live with blackheads and there are a number of remedies you can do right at home to help get rid of them

Facial Steaming

Facial steaming is one of the best and fastest ways to remove blackheads. It works to drive the blackheads out by loosening them up so they come out of the skin. All you need is a pot with four cups of water with a lemon rind in it and a large towel. Bring the water to a boil and then remove the pot from the stove before steaming to prevent burning yourself.

Set the pot on a flat surface and place your face over the pot without actually touching it because the pot can be hot. Drape the towel over your head so that the steam stays in place and do this for three to five minutes. After steaming, wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat dry.

Egg White Mask

Egg whites help to tighten the pores to prevent blackheads and they help to treat current ones. Add some fresh lemon juice and honey to the mix because lemon is a natural astringent and honey is a natural antibacterial. These add a deeper level of cleansing and purifying to the already powerful egg whites. Enjoy tighter, deeper cleansed pores, oil control and excess oil elimination and the sloughing off of dead skin cells. One tip to remember is to not use more lemon juice than the recipe calls for because too much can cause irritation and redness that take time to go away. Take one teaspoon of honey, a fourth teaspoon of lemon juice and one egg white and mix these together.

Do a facial steaming session first to open up the pores and allow the ingredients to really get into the pores. After patting the skin dry, apply the mask to your skin using a circular motion and allow it to sit for 15 minutes. The mask will feel tight and this normal. To rinse it off, use warm water and after it is rinsed away use cold water to snap the pores shut. After patting the skin dry, apply a bit of moisturizer to replenish any moisture that was washed away.

Baking Soda Facial Scrub

Baking soda is a great natural exfoliator and it is able to drive impurities out, deep cleanse the pores and remove dead skin cells. Take one tablespoon of baking soda, three teaspoons of clean water and a half teaspoon of lemon juice and mix these together until you get a texture that is a little thicker than milk. Use clean fingers and a circular motion to gently scrub your skin and then use warm water to rinse it all away. Pat your skin dry and apply your favorite moisturizer.

Organic Honey

Organic honey possesses both antiseptic and antibacterial properties that help to rid the skin of impurities that cause blackheads. Honey is sticky so it really clings to the gunk and gets it out of your pores.

All you need is one tablespoon of organic honey and about two minutes to wash your face. Use a circular motion to gently scrub the skin, paying close attention to areas with blackheads and then rinse this away with warm water and pat the skin dry.

Green Tea Face Mask

Using a green tea face mask helps to purify the skin thanks to its high antioxidant content and it loosens up blackheads so they come out.

Create a mask with three teaspoons of green tea, one tablespoon of brown sugar and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply this to the skin and make sure to pay attention to areas with blackheads. Allow the mask to stay on for 15 minutes and then use warm water to rinse it away and pat the skin dry.

Strawberry Face Scrub

Strawberries are loaded with alpha hydroxyl acids which make this delicious fruit perfect for removing blackheads. These acids control oil production and slough off dead skin cells. This helps to eliminate current blackheads and prevent new ones from occurring.

Blackheads are also unplugged and pores cleansed with the salicylic acid content of strawberries. Create a scrub with one teaspoon of honey, three ripe strawberries and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Spend about three minutes gently scrubbing the skin using a circular motion and then rinse it away with warm water and pat dry.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
