HOW TO CURE AND REMOVE THE BLACKHEADS USING HOME REMEDIES.

 

Blackheads are small, reddish-brown or black colored bumps that are a result of clogged skin pores. Dead skin cells and oils accumulate in the opening of the skin follicles, producing a bump called comedone. If the skin over the bump stays closed, it is called a whitehead. If the skin over the bump opens, exposure to the air makes it look black, hence the name blackhead.

Here are a few tips to get rid of blackheads and prevent them altogether using simple ingredients lying around your home.
