Blackheads are considered as the first phase of acne. One can recognise them with the yellowish or blackish bumps that are embedded in the pores. Blackheads easily develop when the skin produces oil. They can worsen if you fail to clean them properly, if dead skin builds up, if you do frequent makeup or if you use tropical oils. If bacteria start to invade the pores, blackheads start to turn into pimples.

So to prevent the nuisance that these blackheads create on your skin, Priyanka Tyagi, trainee head,  Skeyndor India, gives us some tips to prevent blackheads on skin. 

*Baking soda: The antiseptic quality of baking soda makes it a wonderful product for your skin. It not only works as an exfoliant to scrub away dead skin cells and makes skin soft and smooth. Baking soda also helps to neutralize the skins pH levels. It encourages the skin to produce less oil which means that after regular use, you may be able to say goodbye to blackheads for good.

*Cinnamon: Cinnamon is an anti-bacterial spice that can be used to make an aromatic face mask that offers all sorts of benefits to the skin, including the removal of blackheads. It also helps to eliminate flaky skin as well as acne, and it can be used as a body scrub for a smoother and more glowing complexion.

*Honey: Honey has both antibacterial and antiseptic properties that help remove blackheads by destroying germs or impurities that clog pores. It also acts as a natural antibiotic, helping to pull dirt from the pores of the skin as well as tightening and hydrating the pores for a clearer complexion.

*Epsom Salts: Epsom salts are not only great for easing sore muscles but they can also help to remove blackheads. While most of the treatments on this list dissolve the dead skin and oil, the Epsom salt mixture actually pulls the plug out of each clogged pore so they simply wash away.

*Egg Whites: Egg whites are rich in protein which offers skin toning properties and helps to promote wrinkle-free skin. Due to its ability to tighten skin and minimise pores, using egg whites is good for oily skin and reduces the chances of future blackheads while removing current blackheads at the same time. This method draws out sebum and pulls out any deep within the pores.

*Green Tea: Instead of using endless hours attempting to pop, rub or concentrate clogged pores from your face, try green tea. It is high in antioxidants. It diminishes oils and irritation on the skin, and protects the skin from further harm.  A saucepan, drinking glass, soft towel, gentle face wash, cotton ball and two bags of green tea are the requirements for this treatment.
