Blackheads appear when the sebaceous glands in our skin produce too much oil. When too much oil is produced, the pores become clogged and two things happen: in normal-sized pores, a protective layer is created and pimples appear. On the other hand, in larger pores, the protective layer cannot be produced, the oil is left in the air and oxidises, turning black.
Blackheads make our skin look unattractive. Removing them at home is very simple if we know how to do it. We show you the best home remedies to remove blackheads and show off smooth, soft and blemish-free skin.
8. Steam bath with baking soda
A steam bath with baking soda is one of the most commonly used home remedies for removing blackheads. It is one of the most effective. It is very simple: put water to boil in a saucepan and add a little bicarbonate. While it boils, cover the pan with a clean towel to absorb the steam. After a while, take the towel and place it on your face for a few minutes to open up your pores and then clean your skin to remove blackheads. You can use homemade scrubs. See how to make one below.
