Say Goodbye to Blackheads
Don’t like blackheads? A nifty, lush lemon can help you get rid of them. Take a lemon and slice it in half. Rub the lemon juice gently onto your face and wait for five minutes. Rinse it off with cold water. Lemons have antibacterial properties, so they are a perfect remedy for treating blackheads. Blackheads are clogged pores, oxidized into a dark colour, being open and exposed to air. So it’s important your skin remains moisturized and exfoliated. Even honey would do wonders. Honey is antibacterial in nature and tugs out the dirt from clogged pores. It also softens skin, which makes the extraction of blackhead much easier. Along with honey you can also add milk and apply where you find the most blackheads. Let it sit for 45 mins and then rinse with warm water.
