Remedies for white and black heads

The best method to take care of whiteheads and blackheads, which are pretty similar in nature, would be to use natural astringent on your skin. Both whiteheads as well as blackheads are oil deposits that reside on the surface of the skin, they need to be dealt with in terms of oily skin. The important thing is that these must be taken care of meticulously and with some care, or they can leave ugly scars. Trying to tweeze or scrub them out is a dangerous practice. Double the quantity of fresh water, fruit and juices you drink and cut the amount of fried food you eat in half. Eliminate it altogether if you can. This is an excellent way to fight the problem from within.

A paste of corn flour and vinegar applied to whiteheads or blackheads will help eliminate them. If it tingles, it is working. If you cannot bear the tingling, remove the paste. Try this for a week before you see results. Include a session of facial steaming once a week, putting a few drops of lavender oil in the steam water. After you steam, use a hand towel to scrub your face gently and apply a thin layer of olive oil after about 20 minutes. Tea tree oil is best known for its anti-fungal and antiseptic properties. It is also very effective when applied topically to get rid of infections and skin problems.
