[Yakson House] How to get rid of blackheads

Most of us have problems with annoying blackheads on our nose. 

Common and annoying!

Blackheads occur when your pores when your pores become clogged with excess 

sebum and dead skin cells. The difference between a black head and a white head is 

simply whether or not the pore is open or closed. If the pore is open, the plug of 

sebum/skin cells oxidizes as it is in contact with the oxygen in the air, which turns it 

black. Blackheads are not caused by dirt. Let's make that clear from the beginning. 

Scrubbing your face is not a good way to get rid of your blackheads as it can 

worsen your skin and blackheads. 

Here are some few tips that you can use to remove blackheads. 

1. Clay time

Bentonite clay is a mineral rich healing substance that has been used for centuries to 

treat a number of ailments, chiefly skin related. Because of its molecules "electrical 

charge" when wet, it does an amazing job of drawing out oils or other impurities 

locked in your pores. 

2. Egg white mask

Egg whites from an easy mask that can be used to temporarily tighten pores, thus 

reducing chances of future blackheads, and will also remove current blackheads. Egg 

whites are also rich in nutrients for your skin, and are a little less drying than some 

other home remedies for blackheads. 

You will need 1 egg, Facial tissue or toilet paper, A small bowl, and a clean towel.

Separate the yolk from the white and rinse your face. Pat your face dry and then 

apply a thin layer of egg white over your skin. 

3. Honey and Milk pore strips

Milk and honey both have properties that are good for skin. Honey has antibacterial 

properties, and the lactic acid in milk is said to help keep skin soft and supple. The 

main purpose here though is when mixed together, to act as an adhesive. 

Mix 1 tablespoon of organic raw honey with 1 teaspoon of milk. Heat if for 5-10 

seconds in the microwave, and then mix again to blend thoroughly. When it's a 

comfortable temperature, apply a thin layer over blackheads, and then gently but 

firmly pat a strip of dry, clean, cotton onto it. Let dry(to play it safe, wait at least 20 

minutes) and carefully peel the strip away. Rinse with cold water and moisturize as 


4. H2O daily blackhead treatment

While pore strips and face masks work wonders, they can only be used several times 

a week to avoid drying your skin out to much. If you want to do something daily to 

prevent your blackheads, a gentle rinsing with water 1-2 times a day is the way to 

go. This keeps things that can make your pores appear larger such as excess sebum 

and dead skin flushed away and your pores clear. Be sure to use a light moisturizer 

when you are done to prevent your skin from trying to produce excess sebum to 

accommodate for dryness.
