One most often finds these on the nose or chin: blackheads. Particularly for those with combination skin, they can be constantly annoying. The fight against the little black spots on the face is tough, because they’re incredibly difficult to get rid of. They are most commonly found in the area known as the T-Zone (forehead, nose, chin), because the skin in these regions of the face produce a lot of oil, clogging up the pores.
It is not advisable to try and squeeze blackheads out on your own, because there is a good chance of adding oil and bacteria from your fingers and causing an inflammation. The result is a pimple, exacerbating the problem. However, with two basic ingredients you can create a face mask, with which you can instantly and visibly see improvement. Blackheads will no longer be an issue for you, after a few regular treatments.
1. The Ingredients
To make the blackhead mask you need one sachet of gelatin and milk. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you can use pectin (a plant-based adhesive) instead of the gelatin.
Shake the contents of the gelatine/pectin sachet into a small bowl.
Add 2 tablespoons of milk.
