Blackheads are gross. Most people get a couple in their lifetime, or maybe you have them all the time – either or, they are gross. I’m sure most of us have used those pore strips that rip them out of your face. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t…
What is a blackhead?
Aside from a gross black mark on your face, honestly…it’s just that! A blackhead is a small black mark (like a blemish) that appears on the surface of your skin. The most common locations are the face, back and ears – though they can occur anywhere on the body. The appear most often in these 3 locations due to the large number of sweat glands that are located in these regions.
What causes blackheads?
- Clogged glands or pores
- Poor diet
- Oily skin
- Oily Hair
I think it’s a given that you need to wash your face (I personally recommend 2 times a day,) wash your hair and eat healthy…but how do you get rid of those pesky ones that just won’t let loose?!
What you need:
- Half a lemon (it can be juiced)
- 3 drops of honey
Drop the honey on the lemon and rub the lemon all over your face, focusing on the areas that need the most help (aka nose, chin, lips…etc). Let it sit for 5-7 minutes and then rinse with cold water to close the pores.
My review: OMG! The results were INSTANT! You know how you can feel the blackheads when you rub your finger over your nose (or infected area?)
After I did this – my nose was SMOOTH for the first time in…well…FOREVER! I’m TOTALLY doing this a couple times a week.
Note: This recipe has worked for ME but may NOT work for you. Lemon is acidic in nature and hence it removes the dead skin letting the new growth of skin.This shedding of the outer layer unclogs pores, keeps skin clean, and helps reduces blackheads.
