Practical tips to avoid blackheads

1 Change pillow case regularly. Do not use your pillow case for long but try changing it as often as possible. The reason being that during the night your hair follicles produce oil which easily gets accumulated in your pillow case and then get to your face and skin. Getting oil and dust to your face from the pillow case is a common cause of blackheads.

2 Wash your face at least twice or thrice with gentle soap or cleanser each day and never never go to sleep with your make up on. Always remove the make up with gentle cleanser or use some milk and damp the cotton in the milk and use it as a cleanser.

3 Try to limit your use of cosmetics as far as possible and buy make up which is labeled "non-comedogenic," as products marked with this label do not clog pores at all.

Practice these tips and the homemade remedies and most importantly take care of your hygiene, drink lots of water and eat fresh and green vegetables to keep your skin healthy.From now on for a clean and clear skin say yes to homemade remedies and goodbye to those expensive beauty products.
