Blackheads are common and annoying. They are not caused by dirt, so excessive scrubbing of your face will not get rid of them. In fact, such activities could cause more to appear when your pores become clogged with dead skin cells and excess sebum to form whiteheads, which then open, oxidise, and turn black to form blackheads.
So, even when using a remedy that requires rubbing, it is important that you don’t repeat it more than twice or thrice a week as the scrubbing could undo the good. With that in mind, here are some home remedies for blackheads:
As mentioned before, these remedies should only be used a couple of times a week to avoid dehydrating your skin excessively. During other times, consider rinsing your face with water twice a day to get rid of excess sebum and dead skin and keep the pores clear. Pat your face dry and don’t forget to apply moisturiser.
