Clear Blackheads with Toothpaste Step 1

Step 1. Choose the right type of toothpaste

It is essential to use white toothpaste. Also, buy the most common type you can find. None of those to whiten or improve teeth sensitivity. A mint flavored paste is nice.

The "toothpaste method" is highly recommended by common people but not doctors. It works because toothpaste has some ingredients that help dry out blackheads and pimples. However, as you can imagine, this product also contains several ingredients that could cause other skin problems, including allergic reactions. You can try the toothpaste method at will, but be aware that your doctor would probably not approve of it. If you like, try one of the other procedures below that use only natural ingredients

Step 2. Wash your face and apply toothpaste

Wash your face with warm water and then dry. Apply a layer of toothpaste to the affected areas and let it dry completely. Then rub gently to help remove blackheads from the pores. Wash and dry your face again.

Instead of using your fingers to apply toothpaste to your skin, you can use a washcloth with olive oil or almond oil. Rub the toothpaste on your face for a few minutes

Step 1. Wash your face twice a day

If you suffer from a lot of blackheads or pimples, use a product that contains salicylic acid. Always wash your face with warm water to open your pores. Afterwards, always apply a moisturizer.

  • Always wash your face after you sweat a lot.

Step 2. Exfoliate your face at least once a week

If the frequency is higher than this, the skin may become irritated. Once a week is ideal. If nothing happens, start exfoliating two or three times a week.

Step 3. Avoid rubbing your face

Remember that our hands come into contact with everything. Therefore, to prevent the transfer of oil, dirt and bacteria to your pores, eliminate this habit from your life. Another tip is not to leave your hair touching your face. Our hair is naturally oily, and this oil can clog pores.

Step 1. Make a mask with egg whites

Wash and dry your face normally. Break an egg and separate the white from the yolk, placing the white in a small bowl. With the help of a brush, clear the face and put some kind of thin paper (damp cloth or toilet paper) on top. Wait for it to dry and then pass another layer, adding more paper. Repeat the white and paper process three more times. Allow to dry completely and then pull the paper to remove the mask from the face. Wash and dry the skin to remove any white residue.

  • Another option is to use a mixture of 2 tablespoons of oatmeal (30 g) and 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Optionally add 1 to 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Allow the mask to work on the skin for five minutes and then rinse with cold water.
  • If you prefer something red, use a mashed tomato. Massage the fruit into the face for two minutes and then leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse.

Mix baking soda with water until it forms a paste. With your fingers, rub the skin and massage in a circular motion. Rinse your face, dry and apply a moisturizer.
