We all dream of a smooth skin without imperfections. Only here, exposure to pollution and the daily application of makeup clog the pores and prevent the skin from breathing. Sebum secreted in excess in the pores then causes the appearance of comedones. In contact with the air, the comedone becomes black; the black dot is there.
In addition to pollution, hormones can also be responsible for the appearance of blackheads. According to dermatologist Stuart Kaplan, the appearance of blackheads can be linked to a high level of testosterone that causes the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum.
A recipe based on natural ingredients will eliminate them immediately and give your skin freshness and elasticity. Here is the recipe:
• 1 teaspoon of baking soda
• ½ teaspoon of honey
• 1 teaspoon of olive oil
Mix these 3 ingredients in a bowl until you obtain a homogeneous mixture. Clean your face and apply the mixture as a mask. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse. Be sure to use this mask only once a week.
Baking soda is a very effective cleaning agent. In cutaneous application, it will help you get rid of excess sebum thanks to its purifying and disinfecting properties. Baking soda will also give a feeling of freshness to your skin. Be careful not to confuse bicarbonate of soda and carbonate of soda, the latter being very dangerous for the skin.
Honey is rich in mineral salts, vitamin A, B, and C. Antiseptic and invigorating, it hydrates the skin, nourishes it deeply and gives it radiance.
Olive oil is very popular for its detoxifying and regenerative properties. It also has moisturizing, anti-oxidant, softening properties, and its vitamin E content slows skin aging.
