Getting rid of Blackheads

Here are some tips:

  1. Mix some natural lemon juice and cinnamon and apply it to your face for few minutes. Wash it off with warm water. It helps remove dead skin cells as well as blackheads and also makes your skin soft and smooth.
  2. Make a paste using fenugreek (methi) leaves. It treats all types of acne (including blackheads of course). Use this coat for 10 to 15 minutes and wash with warm water.
  3. Mix lemon juice with same amount of rose water. Place it on your blackheads for 30 minutes every day, and this should be done in about two weeks.For removing blackheads, taking steam would be beneficial, as steam opens the blocked pores. After taking steam, rub the affected region with a towel for 1-2 minutes. Thereafter, splash it with cold water, closing all the open pores.
  4. Grate or slice potatoes into chips and apply onto blackheads, whiteheads, pimples or any other acne. Remove potatoes only when they’re totally dry. Cut garlic and rub it on the areas needed. It smells I know, but what wouldn’t we do for the sake of beauty, right?Wash you face with natural lime juice and milk mixture.

Drink Water

Hydration is tremendously important for overall health. Soda has absolutely ZERO nutritional content; it’s like pouring a punch of sugar and syrup into your cup. Instead, fill it with life-replenishing water. It may taste plain at first if you’re coming off of a heavy soda-drinking streak, but you’ll soon find yourself addicted to it. 10 glasses per day is optimal, how many have you been getting lately? \_/ \_/ \_/
