Looking flawlessly is not only about having great makeup that covers our face and the flaws it has. If you want to look great, you have to start from the roots of the problem. In other words, you should cure and not cover up the problem. Do not worry, everybody with perfect skin has started from somewhere and did not achieve it in one day. If you have whiteheads, you probably would want to get rid of them. Here is how to do it.
What are whiteheads?
Basically, these are small white bumps you can feel on your skin. They usually have a white or yellow color and they are caused by a collection of oil. That is why usually people with oily skin have whiteheads. Sometimes you can see them, sometimes -you do not, it depends on your skin tone. Sometimes they look like pimples or blackheads with white tops. However, you should know never to pop your whiteheads because this may lead to infections.
So, if you cannot remove whiteheads with your hands, how to do it? Here is a list of the most effective ways.
- Wash your face with warm water
Do this at least two times a day. This is probably the most simple thing you can think of, but it is very effective.
- Get some steam
Steam your face over a bowl of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes. Then gently push the whiteheads out. You probably do not know, but warm water/ steam opens up the pores and will be easier for you to clean them.
- Drink a lot of water
Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. This will keep your skin well hydrated and will also help you fight the problems with your face and skin (like whiteheads).
- Try the magic of nature
Or in other words, clean your face with natural products. You can use lemon or apple cider vinegar. Here is a simple recipe: get a cotton bud, squeeze some lemon juice over it so that it is well-soaked and add some sugar. Rub your face for a few minutes, then wash it with warm water. You will notice how clean and fresh your skin will feel.
It is true, they are also a natural product, but they have a special place in our list because they work like a charm. Just massage your face, or other areas of your body with whiteheads, with a tomato pulp. You can also do a facial mask made of tomatoes. They are one of the strongest whiteheads removal tools and will make your skin vibrant, smooth and youthful.
