Blackheads are becoming more and more concerning. We are constantly around pollution or other external factors which contribute a lot to clogging pores and excessive oils. Not to mention, lack of skin care and hygiene also play a huge role in the formation of blackheads.
That is because blackheads are simply hair follicles filled with excess oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. Blackheads are very unsightly and, if left untreated, may cause larger pores and a dry skin.
Thus, if you are looking for natural treatments, you're in the right place. In this article, you will find a 2-ingredient only face scrub to get rid of blackheads in the most natural way.
I am sure you also notice that blackheads are more prone to show up on your nose and the area surrounding your T-zone. Hence, I propose you try a soft face scrub you can make at home using ingredients you already have.
Thus, for this homemade face scrub, you will need the following 2 ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons of ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of buttermilk.
I prefer buttermilk because it contains more lactic acid than the regular milk but you could use simply milk instead.
Now, to make this face scrub, all you have to do is mix the ingredients in a bowl until you get the consistency of a paste.
Then, simply apply it on your more prone to blackheads areas.
Start massaging very gently using circular motions for 5 minutes.
If you want to use it on your entire face, you can safely do so because it is great to use as an exfoliating mask too.
However, be aware that it might tingle and slightly burn as it dries. Thus, make sure you don't leave it on your face for more than 20 minutes. Lastly, rinse off very well and pat dry with a soft towel. Do this every 2 days.
