Simple Home Remedies for Blackheads

What? Why? Oh No- Blackhead?!!

We all hate blackheads and erasing them can be such a pain. Squeezing them out, getting a facial, using nose strips – it can all be so overwhelming! With the ever-increasing pollution and dust around us, the stress of a hectic lifestyle, and harmful chemicals in the products we use, blackheads are a common sight.

Blackheads are small, reddish-brown or black bumps that are a result of clogged skin pores. Dead skin cells and oils accumulate in the opening of the skin follicles, producing a bump.

Squeezing them out is not the best idea as it can lead to inflamed skin, and eventually, scarring
