What are these pesky blackheads, and what causes them?

Blackheads are a type of acne caused by clogged pores. The excess oil, dirt and sebum secreted on the face settle in the pores, which are then oxidized. This process turns them black and prominent.

What is the best method to get rid of blackheads?

While you can go for cosmetic treatments, they are often expensive and may lead to side effects. Peel off masks are a great way to remove blackheads and give you glowing skin because they increase circulation, tighten pores and balance the sebum content of skin. Store-bought masks often contain chemicals that may harm your skin. DIY is the best way to go! Not only are DIY peel off face masks for glowing skin easy and inexpensive to make, their natural ingredients are gentler on your skin. We love!
