Black­heads be­gone!

Stabroek News Sunday - - THE WORLD BEYOND GEORGETOWN -

Black­heads can be stub­born. They are caused when your skin pores get clogged, are ex­posed and ox­i­dize to as­sume a dark colour. So how to get rid of them? Easy! Naturally too, us­ing in­gre­di­ents from your kitchen.

1. Lemon honey treat­ment

Lemon’s as­trin­gent prop­er­ties open the clogged pores, while honey with its an­tibac­te­rial prop­er­ties keeps the bac­te­rial ac­tion that causes black­heads at bay. Mix one tea­spoon of lemon juice with half a tea­spoon of honey. Ap­ply this mix­ture where you have black­heads. Once it dries, wash off with luke­warm wa­ter. Re­peat 3-4 times in a week for best re­sults.

2. Egg white treat­ment

Whisk one egg white and add about two tea­spoons of lemon juice. Ap­ply to the af­fected area and let dry, then ap­ply a sec­ond layer. After 20 min­utes, rinse off thor­oughly with nor­mal wa­ter.

3. Oat­meal treat­ment

This un­clogs pores and ex­fo­li­ates. Mix two ta­ble­spoons of oat­meal, three ta­ble­spoons of plain yo­gurt and the juice of half a lemon juice. Ap­ply the paste to the af­fected area. Let it sit for 15 min­utes. Rinse it off with warm wa­ter. (Free Beauty Tips)
