When they are exposed to air and moisture, they oxidize and darken, and that is the reason why they are called blackheads.
You definitely have heard about numerous ways of eliminating blackheads, and maybe you have read some of them on our portal. In some cases, the blackheads are soft and can be easily removed with peeling and facial cleansing.
However, some blackheads are “stony” and hard, and are often larger than the opening of the pore deep below the skin, so it is very difficult to remove them with pinching, which should be performed only by qualified personnel.
If you have blackheads and you are looking for a permanent solution that is quick and painless, do not worry anymore because we have found this amazing trick on the Internet. People who have tried it say that it really works.
- Menthol toothpaste (peppermint)
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Spoon for mixing
- Small container
Mix 1 tablespoon salt with 2 tablespoons of peppermint based toothpaste. Stir well until you receive a nice paste. Apply the paste on the nose or the area with blackheads and leave it for 5 minutes to dry.
After 5 minutes, add a little water and massage gently with circular movements. When your skin is clean, rinse and finish with gentle movements with the ice cube.
This will help the clean pores to close. That is it, your nose will be clean and smooth.
How does it work?
The salt is a natural antibiotic and can perform peeling of the skin. The salt cannot be dissolved in toothpaste and that is why this is the best combination.
Mint toothpaste is able to open the pores and kill all of the bacteria. This toothpaste deeply cleans pores and removes blackheads.
The nose may become red, but the redness will disappear in a short period of time.
Those who have dry skin should use a hydrant cream after the treatment.
It is important to make a very gentle massage.
