How to get rid of blackheads

Your rating: None Average: 4 (2 votes)
Many individuals suffer from blackheads and popping them out only aggravates the pimples and also can cause scarring or an infection. Instead don’t try to push them out of the skin, but use the methods to remove them.
What you'll need: 
Hot water
Tea Tree Oil
Face scrub
Egg whites
Steam your face. You can do this by heating hot water and pouring it into a large bowl. Add a couple of drops of tea tree oil. Place your head over the bowl and place a towel on top to trap the steam. After 10 minutes pat your face dry.
After steaming, using an exfoliator either natural or store bought, in circular motions scrub your skin. This should be more effective as the steaming will open up your pores and bring your blackheads closer to the skins surface. Exfoliating is crucial to getting rid of blackheads
Steam and exfoliate after once to twice a week.
Another method is to use egg whites. Apply egg whites to your entire face. On top of the egg whites, place thin tissue paper onto your entire face.
Leave for ten minutes and then peel off. This will help tighten the pores and also remove blackheads and whiteheads.
