Tired of blackheads? Well, blackheads are nothing but pimples that do not have skin over them. As there are no skins and they are exposed to the air, the top layer of the substance oxidises and turns that darkish black colour.There is no need to squeeze them.

Squeezing blackheads increase chances of inflammation and skin infections. But trying a bunch of expensive cosmetics also does not work and the result is even worse. What to do then? Well, here are a few home-made remedies which will help you remove your blackheads:

1.      MILK AND NUTMEG: Make a mixture out of milk ad nutmeg and apply to the blackhead areas. Nutmeg helps your skin to reduce oil and provides a very oil-free look.

2.      HONEY: Clean your face and pat it dry. Then apply honey all over the face with your fingers (make sure your honey is very very sticky). This will help clear the pores as you take off your fingers from your face. Honey has a lot of antioxidants and antibacterial ingredients that helps clean your skin and makes it glow.

  1. EGG-WHITE: Clean your face and pat it dry. Apply egg white all over the face with your hands or a paint-brush. Repeat this for a second and third time. Leave it for 15 minutes and then gently scrub your face off with a warm wet towel.

  1. POTATOES:  Potato is very helpful for removing blackheads. Apply a grated potato all over your face and leave it for 15 minutes. Then gently wash off with lukewarm water.

  1. OATMEAL and ROSEWATER:  Oatmeal is one of the best ways to remove blackheads and rosewater smoothens and softens the skin and also makes it glow. Make a paste of rose-water and oatmeal powder. Apply all over your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Then gently was off with lukewarm water.

 So, these are a few home remedies to remove blackheads. Try it! It will work.
