We all want clear and silky skin without enlarged pores and annoying blackheads. When trying to get rid of blackheads we do the impossible, buy expensive creams and exfoliators, and undergo excruciating cosmetic treatments, only to find out that they come back eventually again.
Blackheads are microscopic pimples which when exposed to air and moisture oxidize and turn black to brown in color.
Sometimes they are soft and can be eliminated just with scrubbing, but sometimes this is not the case and they prove very difficult to remove. Luckily for you, we’ve got the perfect DIY mask which will help you eliminate blackheads once and for all.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Mint toothpaste
- 2-3 ice cubes
Mix the salt and toothpaste in a small bowl until they’re well combined into a nice paste. Apply the paste on your problematic area and leave it on for 5 minutes to dry out. Then take some water and massage your face very gently using circular motions. Rinse the mask and rub the ice cubes against your face. The ice will help close the pores and prevent future blackheads from appearing. Pat dry your face with a clean cotton towel and you’re done. Admire your blackheads free face.
Benefits of the ingredients:
Salt – Salt is known for its natural antibacterial properties and is also very beneficial for skin exfoliation.
Mint – The mint from the toothpaste helps open up your pores making it easier to deep clean them, eliminate bacteria and remove the blackheads.
Caution: Be very gentle when massaging your skin to avoid irritation. Your face may be a bit reddish after the treatment, but it will get back to normal shortly. If your skin is dry make sure you use a moisturizer afterwards.
