Steaming, A Natural Way to Remove Blackheads

When I was younger, I was fortunate to not have plenty of pimples on my face but I did have blackheads. And, because I was such a stubborn one, I tried to remove blackheads by squeezing or scrubbing my skin. Luckily, my pores did not get infected then.

When I got a bit older, I found out about another natural and much safer way to get rid of clogged oil and dirt on your face. Aside from using facial scrubs to wash your face over and over again, you can try steaming. Yes, steaming – much like the same method you use to naturally clear your airways when you have colds.

You just have to boil up a pot of water and add a bit of lemon extract. Place a towel over your head and the pot so the steam will go directly to your face. Do this for at least five to ten minutes so the steam can open up your pores. After that, run a clean piece of cotton cloth or a cotton make up pad on your face. This will dislodge blackheads from your open pores. Now, get a piece of cloth, soak it in warm water and press it onto the areas with blackheads. After this, wash your face with soap and water.
