White heads are more common in acne-prone skin. They mostly appear on the nose, cheeks, temples and forehead and spoil the beauty of the face. Here are few effective home remedies to get rid of whiteheads.
A facial steam or sauna is one of the best natural treatments for whiteheads. It helps open up the pores and loosens the buildup of dirt, oil and dead skin cells.
Baking soda is good for gentle exfoliation of oil, dirt and dead skin cells from the skin. Prepare a thick paste by mixing water and baking soda powder. Apply it on eth affected area and wash after few minutes. Baking soda technique also helps to maintain the pH balance of the skin.
Sugar scrub helps to remove excess oil and debris trapped in the pores without causing dryness. Mix together one tablespoon each of sugar and honey. Apply it on your face and gently massage in circular motions. Leave it on for a few minutes and wash your face.
Egg and honey facial mask:
This is another great mask that will make the pores firmer and provide some moisture for your skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of organic yogurt, 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 1 egg white. Apply the mixture and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
Lemons contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid which naturally exfoliates the skin. Mix fresh lemon juice with milk or rosewater to create a facial cleanser and use several times a week.
