You might wash your face and do a lot of things to treat conditions like acne and freckles, or even make your complexion glow a little more, but there is this one thing most of us tend to miss out on. Yes, we are talking about blackheads, and to be honest, they don’t really look nice. Blackheads are tiny black dots which accumulate near our nose, arms, chin, back, face, neck and shoulders.

How does honey help in removing blackheads?

• Honey is overloaded with skin and beauty benefits than just being a taste enhancer. They are known to heal a lot of conditions and are usually always at home.

• Honey is a natural antibiotic which pulls away dirt from pores of skin and cleans blackhead. It is known to keep your face hydrated and clear complexion.

• Home remedies made of honey will naturally peel out blackhead and soothe affected area. It works like a moisturizer and adds shine.

• Honey has antioxidants, antiseptic and anti-bacterial elements which improve the end results.

• With regular appliance you can remove the possibility of blackheads complete, since honey has low pH level falling between 3.2 to 4.5.

Homemade Remedy Steps:

  • The remedy is a homemade blackhead-removing strip made with sticky notepaper, flour, warm water and honey. At first when my great grandma told me that sticky notepaper was in her recipe, I did laugh, but then she explained why.

  •  The first thing you do to make the homemade blackhead removing strips is make the glue that helps the strip stick to the blackheads. The glue is made by using about a tablespoon of flour, a half teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of warm water and combining the ingredients together to form a creamy warm smooth mixture that is not too thick or too thin. However, if you find the mixture is too thick add another half teaspoon of water and if you find the mixture to thin add another pinch or two of flour.

  • However, I prefer my glue mixture slightly runny back I find it dries faster and works better with sticky to the blackheads. Once the glue is made, you take one square three by three inches sticky note, fold it three ways the long way so you end up with three even sections and cut the sections into strips. Once you have three long three inch strips, dip one into the glue mixture you just made until it is soaked and then apply it carefully to your nose like you would a typically blackhead removing strip. Next, allow the blackhead strip to dry onto your nose. This process takes about thirty to forty minutes so make sure you have a good amount of time to do this step. Once the blackhead strip is dry, carefully remove it from the nose.

  • After, you should see the blackheads on the blackhead strip instead of our nose. Now this remedy also works for removing blackheads from your chin, forehead and cheeks as well. This is by far our family’s favorite blackhead remedy.

Facts :

  • The elastin and collagen structure loses its elasticity over time, and the skin’s self-moisturising components also reduce. Sun damage, pollution, smoking, alcohol intake, obesity, rapid weight loss, poor diet, use of harsh skin products, dehydration and free radicals can damage the skin’s elastin and collagen, resulting in sagging, wrinkling and age spots.
  • As the skin begins to sag, fat that is normally confined to the area around the eye moves below your eyes and the area accumulates fluid, making it appear puffy or swollen. Though under-eye bags can run in families, a few specific factors including weather, hormone changes, menopause, eating salty food, lack of sleep and allergies can also have an effect.
  • Application of egg whites can provide a temporary tightening of the skin. Here are some ideas for at-home face masks.
