Banish Blackheads with These 7 Effective Kitchen Tricks

A blackhead is just a pimple without any skin on top. And it’s very annoying. Anybody with slightly larger pores and oily skin is prone to blackheads.

If skin isn’t cleaned properly every day, pores get blocked with secreted oils and dead skin cells. The build-up gets oxidised and the top turns black, creating a blackhead.


Main reasons for the formation blackheads:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Excessive makeup
  • Improper skin care
  • Stress
