Clogged pores, also known as blackheads and whiteheads, are one of the most common annoyances that stand in our way to looking and feeling beautiful. While this issue is all about hormones and heredity, some people incorrectly assume that blackheads and whiteheads are the result of poor hygiene. In reality this has nothing to do with hygiene and, if you suffer from this problem, you already know it’s not true.
Blackheads and whiteheads are caused by overproduction of oil, which is regulated by your hormones. Excessive oil clogs your pores, forming a whitehead. Some whiteheads are open to air and the oxygen in the air oxidizes the oils, turning them dark – you get blackheads. The problem usually occurs during the puberty and, if overproduction of oil persists, it does not go away.
[wp_ad_camp_1]Today I am going to share a quick, easy, natural and safe way to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads. There will be no squeezing, pulling, steaming or buying expensive products. The results will be faster and better, in fact, you should prepare to be amazed. Even better, we will use only natural products, something you probably already have in your kitchen.
You will need only two things:
- apple cider vinegar
Oh yes, a cotton ball!
Mix one part of apple cider vinegar with one part of water, apply on affected areas with a cotton ball every day before you sleep. Do not rinse. That’s it!
How fast the results will be? From personal experience (and I have a very bad case of blackheads on my nose) it takes about three days. In three days there will be no blackheads, no whiteheads, your pores will seem smaller and your entire face will look smoother and brighter. You might not believe your eyes and try to squeeze your pores but there will be nothing to squeeze.
You can apply this mixture on your entire face, not only blackhead and whitehead areas – this benefits skin in many other ways (I would avoid eye area). If you stop using vinegar your blackheads are likely to return unless you find a way to regulate your hormones. The good thing is there is nothing wrong with using vinegar and water on your face every day as long as you wish. There will be unpleasant smell in the beginning but this smell will dissipate in a few minutes.
Believe it or not, it works. It’s sad we spent all that money on nose strips, facials and expensive tonics. It’s terrible we squeezed and steamed our skin making things only worse. Let’s get over it though – now we have a real solution, a solution that costs us less than $0.01.
