For an inaugural post I have found a Face Mask to remove blackheads. This post originally posted on Fastmaza Here.
I deal with blackheads, like everyone probably does. By no means do I have problem skin, just a couple of patches with blackheads around my nose and in-between my eyes.
The recipe calls for 2 egg whites and a teaspoon of lemon juice. I modified this to reduce waste by only using 1 egg whites and half a teaspoon of lemon juice.
The website claims that egg whites are known to harden over time, while lemon juice contains natural acids to help remove the blackheads.
After mixing the ingredients and applying the mask to my problem areas I let it harden for 20 minutes.
After letting it harden for 20 minutes I removed the mask in pieces, peeling it off, not using a wash cloth- like the website instructs.
The mask did not peel off in pieces, I needed to rub it off (After a 20 minute drying time)
I saw no major differences, less visible blackheads were noticed.
This mask was kind of bust for me, perhaps it was the alterations I made to the recipe that is to blame.
Have you tried any pinterest masks? Do you find they work? Let me know in the comments!
