Pimples and blackheads are definitely one of the worst skin problems for teenagers. They look pretty unpleasant and can be painful in some cases, which is why everyone is looking to remove them as quickly as possible. However, this is easier said than done – most of the commercial products and treatments for blackheads and pimples don’t work, and can be pretty expensive as well. Luckily, there is a simple natural recipe that will clean out your pores and prevent blemishes.
DIY pore strips
The pore strips can be easily prepared at home and contain only 2 simple ingredients – egg whites and tissue paper. Eggs are one of the most common foods in any kitchen and they’re also among the nutritionally richest ones. Eggs have skin-tightening properties which makes them a great remedy against enlarged pores, and contain essential nutrients for our skin. Instead of using the whole egg, you’ll only need the egg whites for this mask, but make sure they’re organic.
Two-ply tissue paper
Although it may not seem like an important ingredient, the two-ply tissue paper is an integral part of the pore strips. This type of paper is durable and easily available, and will help you eliminate all the blackheads and pimples on your face.
The process of preparation is simple – strain the egg whites and wisk them in a bowl, then dip two pieces of the tissue paper in them to saturate them nicely. Apply the strips on the affected areas of your face and leave them to work their magic for up to 20 minutes. Once dry, peel the strips off and they will take out the excess dirt and oil from your face.
These natural DIY cleansing pores are suitable for all ages and skin types and don’t have any side-effects. Try them yourself and we’re sure you’ll be amazed by the results.
