How to get rid of whiteheads fast at home

So you want to know about how to get rid of whiteheads? First, it may be useful to know how we get the whiteheads. Whiteheads are also known as closed comedones, are hard white bumps caused by a collection of oil and dead skin cells inside pores. They usually take on a white or yellow color. Whiteheads are more common with the people who have oily skin. Whiteheads are formed of pimples and blackheads; they are caused by clogged pores. Don’t pop your white heads with your hands, because it causes pimples, infection and even scarring. If whiteheads appear on your skin don’t worry, you can remove those whiteheads successes by following these tips.

How to get rid of whiteheads fast at home

  1. Wash your face with warm water at least twice a day using a mild face wash. Because a regular ritual of washing your face helps get rid of whiteheads and prevents them from coming back.
  2. One of the most effective methods to get rid of whiteheads at home consists of steaming your face over a bowl of boiling water for 10 minutes. Because stemming opens the pores. After taking steaming, gently push the whiteheads out of the pore. But remember not to force hard it can cause scars or broken veins.
  3. You can use a clay mask. It is helpful in removing more dead skin cells. But I recommend using a thick paste of baking soda and water. Apply it all over your face, now wait for dry and after that wash your face with warm water.
  4. If you don’t want to steam your face no problem you can dip a towel in warm water, squeeze dry, and on your face. Repeat this for a few minutes to insured that your face has been warmed up and your pores have been opened.
  5. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily, this remedy keeps you hydrated and your faces less problem of pimples and acne.
  6. Rub gently lemon on your face with a cotton ball. Mild acid in it helps in opening pores and removing whiteheads. Lemon juice also dries excess oil which caused whiteheads.
  7. Apple cider vinegar helps with all types of blemishes, as well as whiteheads. For best results dip some liquid into the affected area just after steaming. Don’t rinse.
  8. Honey contains antibacterial properties. It helps to remove blackheads and whiteheads. Apply honey directly without mixing anything on problem areas after cleansing the skin. Leave for 10 minutes, rinse off with warm water.

Always use home remedies with natural ingredients. Because it’s easier and safer way to remove whiteheads from your face. If you find one or 2 methods that work very well, then never use the same medications to treat whiteheads again.

If you used one of the above remedy and it gives you good result then feel free to give your suggestion and opinions on it.

    I’m 20 years old, having white heads all over my face. Using scrub is making my skin burn. How to get rid of these whiteheads from my oily skin? Please suggest me some good home remedy.

            Whiteheads are caused by the accumulation of sebaceous matter beneath the skin. They occur on different parts of the face, neck, chest and the shoulders. Used green tea can be utilized by scrubbing your face with it. Do it twice a week and see the difference.

            After a hot shower, pull the skin back away from the center white head. The white should start to come out. Then push skin back towards center… UNDER the infection. The puss should come out. wipe away with clean tissue, and then use a mild alcohol type astringint to keep it clean. apply toothpaste on them at nighttime..put rubbing alchol on them to dry to them out. drinking plenty of water does wonders for skin, the water is needed to get rid of waste and oils so drink water and eat lots of fresh fruit/vegies and nuts.

            don’t worry alisha. You are like my sister and I love you all. You all are my family. I will tell you a mask just apply it before going to bed and next morning wash your face. Take 2 tablespoon oats just grind them finely, one tablespoon yoghurt, 1 tablespoon honey, one teaspoon lemon juice and few drops of rose water. mix them together and apply on your skin.

    Thanks for the useful tips. I use clay mask to clean my face from white heads as you mentioned. But since I live in Jordan, I consider my self very lucky since I can get fresh Dead Sea clay, it is full of minerals and is very powerful for cleaning pores. And it smells like minerals :)

      After reviewing your comment some home tips regarding your problem. Look your diet plan eat fresh fruits and vegetables, Keep your face clean by washing it with plain water. You can also wash your face with warm water twice; Utilize used green tea by scrubbing your face with it. Do it twice in a week and see the difference, Jojoba oil is a good moisturizer for skin, used after scrubs to remove whiteheads and you can also use tree tea oil.

    • says

      You cannot get rid of acne fast – just won’t happen. So be patience. Utilize used green tea by scrubbing your face with it. Do it twice in a week and see the difference, In a cotton pad, add water and rinse it off then add salt(any salt) and keep it for 3-4 min and remove, it depends on your skin, might be that te pimples may reduce in 3-4 min and in 2 hours your pimples are completely gone,

    • says

      Guys here is the best remedy!!!!! I’ve tried it myself and it won’t scar or require TONS OF MAKEUP:). Here’s the ingredients:
      . Sea salt
      . Q-tips/cotton pads
      . Lemons/organic lemon juice
      . Cinnamon
      . A salilyc acids acne medication (I recommend Clearasil)
      . Light skin colored powder
      . Skin colored concealer cream (Revlon is the BEST!!)
      This is how u do it. First, get a bowl of water and pour in a generous amount of sea salt (I guess any salt will do.) microwave it until it’s hot, NOT BOILING

    • says

      Apply the juice of a lemon mixed with a little honey. Using this mixture regularly can bleach the hair permanently. A paste made of sugar, lime juice and water can also be applied on the surface of the skin. Make sure you apply the mixture in the direction of the hair growth. Allow this paste to dry and rinse it with cold water after ten to fifteen minutes. Try this procedure at least two times a week to achieve desired results. Another effective remedy is a mixture of one egg white, a table spoon sugar and a pinch of corn flour. This sticky paste can be applied on the skin, allowed to dry and rinsed with cold water

    Hi Hira,
    my skin is extremely oily and I have whiteheads all over my nose. Can you please tell me how to get rid of them fast please.

    • says

      Try reducing the amount of fat you eat. Excess fat contributes to white heads. Also, use a clay mask once a week to control oil. To get rid of a whitehead, open the pores first with steam. Then, use a sugar scrub. Put a warm compress on them. Use very warm tap water and a cotton ball, wash cloth, etc. Hold it on the whitehead for 10 minutes a few times a day. The head will make it heal faster.

    • says

      Peel and mash a small tomato. Apply the tomato pulp to your blackheads and whiteheads before going to bed. Leave the tomato pulp on your face while you sleep and then wash your face with warm water in the morning. Mix three tablespoons of plain yogurt with two tablespoons of oatmeal. Add one teaspoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of lemon juice to the mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly and apply it to the effective area of the face. Let the mixture sit for five to seven minutes then rinse off with cold water.

Can you pls suggest me a very gud remedy to get rid away completely from this whiteheads

        • says

          I’ve been doing the olive oil massage routine for 2 days now and it’s amazing how all those blackheads and whiteheads are coming out. I use Mary Kay Microdermabrasion and have had excellent results. the first rule is to use only oil-free products on your skin.Avoid wearing oily make-up or using products that contain oil, and also avoid touching your skin with your hands. Exfoliate your skin regularly. Mix Cornstarch With Vinegar, make a paste and apply on the area for 15-30 minutes; wash off with washcloth and warm water, this helps to get rid whiteheads.

      Take 2 tbsp of honey. Add 2 tsp of milk. Mix well. Apply on the face and neck taking care to avoid the eyes. Leave it for 20 min. Wash off with lukewarm water. Another remedy is Take 2 mashed bananas. Add 2 tbsp of honey. Mix well. Apply on dry skin. Leave it for 20 min. Wash off with warm water. Last one Take 4 tbsp of wheat flour. Add ½ tsp of turmeric powder. Add 1 tsp of mustard oil. Add water to make a paste. Apply the paste on the face taking care to avoid the eyes. Leave it to dry for 10 min. Remove the dried mask by scrubbing it with your palms. After 30 min, wash off with lukewarm water.

    • says

      What you need
      1.toothpaste(not the gel, the paste)
      2.baking soda
      3.1 cotton swab
      4.A little baby bowl

      Step 1.
      Place the toothpaste on your pimple, make sure the paste is evenly on. leave on for no more then 6 minutes, and it might sting a little.

      Step 2.
      Place hot water in side the bowl and pour the baking soda in side of it(you dont need that much of water or baking soda) and steer it with the cotton swab. Leave it on for about 30 seconds or so.

      Step 3.
      Take off completely

      Suggestion
      you may or want to put ice on it just to swell it down a little.
      And all of this is right just before you go to sleep.

      i do this all the time and it works!!

        • says

          you sound ignorant. sweetheart, there is nothing that will scar the skin included or listed in what Hira recommended. toothpaste is is harmless,baking soda is harmless and so are cotton swabs and h20, with that being said now get lost troll.

          • Mint says

            While the putting baking soda on pimples probably won’t scar the skin, what Hira recommended in her original post (putting a baking soda and water mask on your face) unfortunately has a high chance of being irritating and detrimental to the skin. Baking soda can be stripping, and it’s highly unadvisable to use it without some kind of an acidic toner afterward as it can increase the ph of the skin, making it more basic. I hope that Hira will alter her original post and include this information, as no one wants to hurt their skin.

    • says

      To get rid of them: get those pore strips at the store. They have them in all different brands. Before using one, fill the sink up with really, really HOT water puts your face just above it, then put a towel over your head. Do that for as long as you can stand it. Then put the strip on. The steam opens up your pores and the strip will remove impurities.
      For everyday face cleaning gets a face wash and face lotion with salicylic acid in the ingredients. That will help keep the dirt and oil dried up. Also, get those little thin paper oil absorber to swap your face throughout the day to get rid of excess oil.

    • says

      There are mainly two layers of skin that cover the body, the epidermis or the outer layer and the hypodermis or the inner layer. Any problem in the skin, like infections, wounds, burns, inflammation, dryness or peeling first affects the epidermis, which is that part of the body which is visible to the eye. It also due to lack of vitamin B. Now you understand that peel off skin is bad. You have to get rid of it as soon as possible.

    • says

      there are many causes which makes break out like stress, dirt, touching so much your face, excess use of Dairy and Sugar Consumption, may be Not Washing Your Face properly, Using New Skin Care Products, Hormones, Menopause, pollution, Weather Changes, any type of Medications and stomach acidity.

    • says

      So not eat greasy food, junk foods, spicy Foods, specially made with red pepper eat foods which made with black pepper. Eat lots of healthy, natural foods, eat juicy fruits and vegetables. Drink a lot of water. Wash your face whenever you can, but don’t dry it up. Don’t touch your face with your germy hands or pick/poke blemishes, it just makes it worse. Wash your hair; the oil from your head runs down onto your face. Use some raw milk at night. Then wash it off at morning. Drink cold milk and eat yoghurt at empty stomach.

      Steam your face to hydrate and soften your pores and loosen whiteheads. Once you are done with steam, take a dry cotton cloth and gently but firmly press whitehead area. You can also use a comedone remover tool to remove whiteheads effectively. Make your own homemade face scrub with rice or oat flour to get rid of whiteheads. Apply a small amount of toothpaste on whiteheads at night. Then wash it off at morning.

    Hi,
    I have whiteheads all along my forehead, side of the nose, and my chin. I’ve been looking into quick ways to remove them, since they have been on my skin for 1.5 years by now, and have looked into comedone removers. Do you recommend them, or would you recommend to do a much more natural process? I am just sick of them and wish them gone.

    Hi Hira – First of all, I’d like to thank you for providing your suggestions & valuable home based remedies to so many ppl out there who needed help. Having said that, I also need your help. I’m 29 years female from India who is tired & have exhausted all her limits when it comes to treating pimples, scars & white heads. Its been two years & I have gone through long allopathy medical treatments, herbal, home remedies & homopatheic treatments but NO USE!!!! My pimples r stubborn, Recently had a hormonal tes (Serum FSH & SH) & results seem ok.

    Hence, I beg of you to please help me. Problem – I have whiteheads on forehead, nose & chin. Pimples with pus in it on foreheads , nose & shin (now they have started appearing on cheeks as well). Please help me & let me know a remedy which is permanent and which can stop appearance of pimples n whiteheads. I have spent huge amount of money, time and energy on all methods but none seemed to be helpful for me. Hoping to get some help from you.

    Thanks a ton.

      Hi Monika Mukherjee as you are from Delhi, we all know that Delhi is really big city and polluted too. People often like to go on hangouts and prefer to eat their lunches and dinners outsides. I don’t know why people don’t think that our body is totally costumizeable and with making a little change we can easily get rid of these problems. Ok has now come to point dear you have so much hormonal problem which creates pimples and move over you have acidity and toxins in your body. Firstly you have to do a short term detoxify program which cleanse your blood and helps to flush out the toxins. Basically on this problem you have to do fast for 3 to 7 days not more than it. You can only eat fruits and vegetables, I will prefer that you should use fruits and fruits/ vegetable juices more. You can drink milk but without sugar yea you can add some honey, herbal teas. Apply some fruit juice on skin. When doing this please you have to relax and reduce stress and angers. You can take a hot shower. Remember to do little bit exercises like walking etc. When you are done this program contact with me I will further send you the treatment. I hope this helps you If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

      make a paste of oatmeal, chamomile and olive oil to soothe sensitive skin. Apple cider vinegar is also a recognized rosacea treatment method. Oral apple cider vinegar rinse can enable Red Bumps With Whiteheads

    • says

      Soak in a cool bathwater with a mix of water and vinegar. The vinegar will soothe and relieve your sunburn. You can take as many baths as needed to relieve the pain. Try not to dry off with a towel as rubbing with the towel can cause further pain. Use a sheet instead to wipe dry. Pour the milk directly onto the sunburn to relieve the pain. Peeling still may occur but the pain will be relieved. The baking sodas will sooth the burning sensation and cool the skin. The burning will cool until the pain is gone completely. Make sure to leave the baking soda on long enough for the baking soda to work fully.

  20. Manorama says

    My skin is too dry with so many white heads.Whatever cream i apply on my face it get deposited on my face pores causing white heads.Specially when i apply powder on my face then white heads grow sooner.
    I use to wash my face twice a day and scrub twice a week as well.
    then only one option left with me .should i d’ not apply cream or powder on face??
    Pls suggest me ,because it not possible to stop the application any thing on face…..thanks

    • says

      Use just a Clearasil ultra pad at night and get ready for bed so it can dry up the whiteheads completely then use a very light moisturizer. Place the pan of hot water near your feet. Place a towel over your head, lean over the pan to allow the steam come up to your face. Let it steam for 5-10 minutes. Steaming your face lead to opening up of your pores wider, making it easier for your scrub to clean. After exfoliating, rinse your skin / face thoroughly with clean water, use a skin toner to close your pores. Alternatively, wrap cotton cloth around an ice cube and run it over your face to close your pores. You can use a clay mask. It is helpful in removing more dead skin cells. Alternatively, you can use a home made thick paste of baking soda and water. Apply it over your face, let it dry and thereafter wash your face thoroughly with water. Rub gently lemon on your face. It works as an antibacterial agent and the mild acid in it helps in opening pores and removing whiteheads. Go for daily exercises. They not only help you in getting away excess oil from your system but help in oxygenating your skin to make it firm and healthy.

    Hi hira,
    I have read loads of posts regarding whiteheads and blackheads and im a bit relaxed to know that, im not alone either *sigh*, anyways not least, i have been fighting acne for 4 years, have tried loads of products but nothing helps. Even i hv gone through some beauty treatment n facials plus some medication. Result was temporary clear up but after few months it happened again.
    Then atlast i tried some home remedies, they helped. I used lemon juice , oatmeal, yogurt mask, cleanse my face everynight before sleep. But its like now since 5 months im having worst acne again. I have so many whiteheads on my foreheads n chin. A few on cheeks as well. I again started doing that mask thing. But it didnt help much this time. A few whiteheads got popped by themselves n got away. But those on chin n forehead are so hard they dnt go away. Help! I have oily skin. I also drink plenty of water daily. I hv cut off oily and junk food since long. Im a muslim girl so i offer prayer 5 times a day so i wash my face as well in waddu…avoid dust as well.. but still acne doesnt leaves my face.. kindly help. Thanks

    • says

      To remove whiteheads, scrub your face first. Make your safe facial scrub at home. Its’ simple, take 2 tbsp baking soda in a cup and add 1 ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar. Combine them and cover your face. Leave the state for ½ an hour. Make natural clay to mask your whiteheads and dead skin cells. Make it at your home; just take 1 tbsp baking soda, ½ tbsp cinnamon powder, 1 tbsp lemon juice and add a little water at the end. Mix them up and apply the mask over your face including neck. Use this clay twice in a week to get rid of whiteheads quickly at home. Use raw honey over your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off. put the ice cube on your face for a while it will help it heal faster and go away. you can also put toothpaste on the zit after you ice it that helps 2 but ice it its the fastest way to get rid of zits

    Hi hira, i have oily skin and so got blackheads for nose and whitehead all over my face, i have used ur tip of baking soda and when i washed my face, there was.small bumps all over my face, tell me why its happend

    • says

      That happens to me sometimes, but don’t worry. You have two options, you can either make a homemade face cleanser or use a store bought brand. The reason these bumps are here is because your pores are clogged with dirt. A great homemade face cleanser is just taking an avocado and smashing it and smearing it on your face. Leave it for 20 minutes, or until it becomes flaky, and rinse.

      Or you can go to walmart or any nearby store and by a face scrub called apricot scrub for blimps and blemishes. It works like wonders and I use it all the time. When you scrub your face with the beady scrub, you can actually feel your face becoming cleaner and once rinsed off with cold water, your face is as smooth as a baby’s bottom!

    • says

      try Oxy10 wash or benzoyl peroxide it will dry out the areas where it is applied, and it may take a couple weeks before you see any improvement. If your skin feels too dry, then try a lower strength benzoyl peroxide product. If your bumps does not improve in a couple weeks, then contact your doctor for other treatment methods.

    i want you to help me out by telling me some natural tips, as im tired of using diff products.

    • says

      Exfoliate your skin two to three times per week to slough away dead skin cells before they become trapped within the pore, You can purchase an exfoliating cleanser from the store. Choose one with salicylic acid along with an abrasive ingredient to help to dissolve dead skin while sloughing it away. You can also make your own exfoliating cream naturally by combining a cup of brown sugar with two tablespoons of olive oil, mixing to make a paste. Rub on your skin for 30 seconds before rinsing away.
      Steaming is an excellent method for cleansing your skin. So, don’t forget to steam once a week for a few minutes. Steaming helps in cleaning your skin from deeply embedded debris (dust, sebaceous secretions, dead skin cells and traces of makeup), while opens clogged pores and softens the skin. When a spot with a whitehead appears, apply a small amount of toothpaste on whiteheads at night.This toothpaste on whiteheads treatment will help get rid of blackheads and whiteheads from the forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose effectively. To make a homemade face cleanser by mixing 2 tablespoons of fresh milk, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon cooking salt. Rub it on your face and wash it off.

          first of all identify your problem well either you have white bumps or whiteheads. search on google and identify your problem by matching with pictures of both. then told me which problem you have.

      One thing that is of absolute importance is a regular and thorough skincare regimen. You need to make sure you cleanse your skin using some mild anti-bacterial soap or face wash, twice a day. If you use face wash with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide it may help in controlling the appearance of these bumps. You can also make sure you use a refreshing face scrub once or twice a week. Use a light moisturizer that is non-comedogenic. you can find a list of ingredients to throw together to give yourself a great facial. Or you could just on a pot of water and boil it, take it off the stove, put your face to the steam and drape a towel over your head. Do this for about 15-20 minutes. This will open up your pores. Use some sugar to exfoliate and then a good moisturizer like Cetaphil for sensitive skin. Use lots of it before you go to bed. One way is dabbing apple cider vinegar on your face every nite. Another is a mask of baking soda and water. Mix up enough to make a paste on put in on your face. Let dry for 15 minutes or so. Then rinse. Make sure to moisturize well afterwards. I use organice cold pressed olive oil to moisturize. Its the best.

      applying lemon juice twice daily to the dark spots. You can also dab horseradish, honey, or apple cider vinegar on top of the lemon to enhance the effect of this natural dark spot treatment. make a concentrated paste of sandalwood powder, glycerin, and rose water and apply over the face for a few minutes. You can also add milk or honey instead of rose water. Dab the milk with a cotton ball and apply it directly to your brown spots on face. Leave it on for 8-10 minutes and wash it off

      Use extra extra virgin olive or EV coconut oil – they are noncomedogenic so they do not clog, cause breakouts nor make skin oily. For best and fastest results do forward and back (not circular) massage for 15 to 30 minutes daily (can be in 2 or more sessions). It should be done quite vigorously while applying some pressure. Use front and tips of fingers and whole of hand where possible. To prevent skin pulling, first, tighten skin by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth. Tightens most of face. Steam your face like this for about 10-15 minutes. If the water cools off, you can always reheat. I like to do hot/cold water therapy on my skin. The way you do this is by steaming for 10 minutes, then splashing cold water from the faucet on your face for a minute…then warming up your water again and steam again for 10 minutes. Then when your pores are heated and open from the steam…apply a glacial marine mud mask…a lower priced one is Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Mask…a higher priced one could come from Nu Skin. When you are washing the mask off with warm water, you may see some of the white heads starting to become softer…this is the ideal time to gently extract them. But if the skin over the white head seems really thick, DON’t force the stuff out by squeezing!!! This will cause scarring If the white head still isn’t ready to come to a head, you can put the same mud mask on the whiteheads (spot treatment), and wear overnight. In the morning, you could steam again and this time, try a different kind of mask…like Queen Helene’s Grape Seed Mask. This will refine pores and get tight enough to encourage the gunk in your pores to come to the surface. You can also buy a tube of 10 percent benozyl peroxide and do a spot treatment with that.

    • says

      A regular ritual of washing your face helps get rid of white heads and prevents them from coming back. Dry skin is more susceptible to white heads, so always keep your skin moisturized. Make sure that you get oil-free moisturizers for this purpose. Boil water in small pot or pan. After boiling, take it off the stove and put it somewhere where it can let steam up your face. Be careful. The best position to allow steam up to your face is to sit down on a chair, placing your pot of water at your feet. Once seated, cover your face with a towel and lean over to let the steam come up your face. Let it steam for 5-10 minutes. Steaming your face will cause your pores to open wider, making it easier for your scrubs to clean. You may then exfoliate your skin using your scrub or exfoliant of choice. After rinsing off your skin, use a skin toner to close your pores. You can also use an ice cube wrapped in a cotton cloth, running it over your face to close your pores. If you do not want to steam your face, you can always dip a towel in warm water, squeeze dry, and apply to your face. Repeat this for a few minutes to ensure that all your face has been warmed up and your pores have been opened. Using a clay mask once a week is also a good way to get rid of white heads. It helps remove most dead skin cells and encourages fresh ones to grow. Drinking lots of water and fruit juice helps detoxify your skin and keep it clear. Some say that drinking a glass of water with honey first thing in the morning is also helpful for detoxifying your skin.Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to keep your body, and in turn your skin, healthy! This will also help detoxify your body.

      • says

        Can you make clay mask??
        I have a skin toner from proactive would that be okay?? I use proactive to help to get rid off my pimples i get allergy from dirt so that causes it and especially when im playing sports.
        So once the face is warmed up and the pores are open you put the clay mask on or do you just scrub it??

        • says

          If you are sporty person like me then I advice you to use good exfoliator like from a good brand. First do exfoliation then use clay mask. I usually st. ives MINERAL CLAY FIRMING MASK and APRICOT SCRUB GENTLE.

    hey,
    I met with a major accident a couple of months back. I am left with a scar near my eye lid. My eye brow also got cut as i had stitches on my eye brow. The skin near the stitches became very sensitive.
    Can you suggest me as to how i can lighten the scar and is it possible by anyways of hair growth on my hair brow. please help me out.

    • says

      Apply vitamin E after the stitches have been removed and the wound is completely healed. Vitamin E has long been used to minimize scarring. Before applying this topical vitamin, make sure that the skin edges are completely closed. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist. If you are unhappy with the remaining scar, consult a doctor who can provide you with alternative methods for scar removal, such as a prescription cream or laser treatment. Exfoliate the area twice a week. Using an exfoliating scrub or brush, rub the affected area gently in small circular motions. This will remove dead skin cells and expose brighter, smoother skin underneath. Regular exfoliation can reduce the appearance of scars over time.

    • says

      The body is unable to remove toxins through excretion leading to contamination of the bloodstream. This can be due to. Irregular meal timings. Excess starch, sugar, oil and fat consumption. 1. Garlic contains allicin, which is a natural antibiotic. Take 2-3 garlic cloves. Crush them to make a paste. Apply this paste on the affected parts of the skin. For sensitive skin, mix yogurt in the garlic paste before applying. 1. Take a handful of washed coriander leaves. Crush them finely. Place the paste on a sieve and press to extract the juice. Add a pinch of turmeric powder. Mix well. Apply this mixture on the face every night

    • says

      Many people mistake whiteheads for pimples as they both look alike but there is a difference because whiteheads should be removed very carefully. Clean your face at least twice a day with skincare products that are appropriate for your skin type. Use a facial cleanser that contain salicylic acid or alpha hydroxyl acids as there ingredients help in unclogging the pores. Exfoliate your skin twice or three times a week. Even if your skin is oily or mixed you should never forget to apply a moisturizer or a hydrating cream. Once a week steam your face for a few minutes to cleanse your skin in deep. It’s essential to keep your skin clean all the time in order to prevent the formation of whiteheads. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin and body hydrated and to remove the toxins from your skin. Take gram flour as it is a natural tan remover. Add 4-5 powdered almonds, 1 teaspoon of milk and lemon juice in gram flour and mix all of it together. Apply it on face and neck for 20-30 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Its make your color brighter. Use mixture of honey and lime juice in one tablespoon of yoghurt. Apply this pack evenly on your face and neck and let it stay for 15 minutes before washing it off with water. It will cleanse your skin and it will appear brighter than before.

    • says

      Some of the main causes of brown spots are sun exposure, aging, genetics, menopause, pregnancy, stress, improper skincare, weak liver, hyper-pigmentation of the skin, lack of vitamin C or B12, smoking, cancer, dermatitis, and diabetes and so on. Those having oily skin or suffering from acne can use buttermilk after adding some lemon juice in it. Another option is to mix four teaspoon of buttermilk and two teaspoon of tomato juice together and then apply this mixture on the affected skin. You can make homemade pack with sandalwood powder, rose water, glycerin, and lemon juice. Apply this pack onto the black spots and allow it to dry naturally. Use cold water to wash it off. Do this once daily to eliminate dark spots or age spots on skin. Along with this massage the affected area with sandalwood oil daily before going to bed and leave it overnight. mix grated horseradish with either apple cider vinegar or buttermilk in a glass container and allow the mixture to sit for two weeks. After two weeks, strain the mixture and then with the help of a cotton ball apply it on the affected skin area. Follow this remedy three times a day for at least one month and soon the brown spots and freckles will fade away. applying potato slices and a paste of honey, lemon juice, and turmeric powder. Choose the method which is easy for you. I hope it helps you.

Don’t use anything too abrasive on it as this can irritate it worse. You need to use a moisturizing cleanser with a washcloth and you need to use a lotion containing either lactic acid or alpha hydroxy acid. The lotion will exfoliate the bumps away and keep your skin moisturized. You should use it twice per day until your bumps go away, then you can revert to once a day to maintain smoothness. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. Mix nutmeg, pepper and a little water, to form a paste. Apply on the pimples, let it dry and then wash it off. Heat honey slightly and mix with gram flour, to form a paste. Apply to your face and let it dry. Rinse later.Take equal quantities of rice, poppy seeds and almonds and grind them to a paste. Mix the paste with 2 tablespoons of curd and apply onto your face. Let it dry for 10 minutes and then wash it off. You can also apply egg white on the affected area for about 20 minutes until dried, and then wash it off.

    Hi hira,

    I have whiteheads on my forehead and down the side of forehead. Also on the side of my nose and in the middle of my fore head my skin has darkened. How do I overcome this?

    • says

      After reviewing your comment some home tips regarding your problem. Look your diet plan eat fresh fruits and vegetables, Keep your face clean by washing it with plain water. You can also wash your face with warm water twice; Utilize used green tea by scrubbing your face with it. Do it twice in a week and see the difference, Jojoba oil is a good moisturizer for skin, used after scrubs to remove whiteheads and you can also use tree tea oil. Try reducing the amount of fat you eat. Excess fat contributes to white heads. Also, use a clay mask once a week to control oil. To get rid of a whitehead, open the pores first with steam. Then, use a sugar scrub. Put a warm compress on them. Use very warm tap water and a cotton ball, wash cloth, etc. Hold it on the whitehead for 10 minutes a few times a day. The head will make it heal faster.

Stay there for about ten minutes, then immeditaly wash your face with a mild soap to remove the dirt and oil you just released. You can also expose your black heads and white heads to a steam room or the steam created by a hot shower. Rub the gel or juice into your black heads and white heads with your hand or a cotton ball and let it evaporate into your skin. Mix either oatmeal or almond powder with just enough rose water to make a spreadable paste. Apply it to your problem areas with your fingertips first and then apply it to the rest of your face. Let it set for about 15 minutes and then rinse your face with cold water. Wash your hands before you touch your face. Washing and exfoliating are good to keep your face silky and supple.

            Your best bet for smoother, wrinkle-free skin is to sleep face up, on your back. Reduce your refined sugar intake. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Use Green Tea. Drink More Water. hard Exercise for 60 minutes. A face pack made of fullers’ earth, mashed ripe papaya and cucumber juice when applied to the face and throat will help tighten skin and lighten it in the process. Exfoliate your skin a few times a week. Wear plain yogurt facial masks and wash it off with milk. Take 2 almonds and soak them in water overnight. In the morning remove their skin and grind them to make fine paste. Add one tablespoon of milk and make a thick paste. Now applies this paste on your face. Massage your face with this paste. Let it stay on your face for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with cold water.

      Papules are tiny bumps on the face that tend to be 5mm or less in size. A papule occurs when a hair follicle becomes inflamed. The treatment of papules begins with a good daily skincare regimen, all with a goal of reducing inflammation. This means washing the face twice daily with a mild face wash and applying a topical agent to help reduce acne, such as 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide or a salicylic acid gel. Applying a daily sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) higher than 15 also may help to reduce the chances for inflammation. clindamycin or erthromycin, both of which kill bacteria in order to reduce inflammation. Additional treatments include retinoids–such as Retin-A, Differin or Tazorac which are helpful in reducing inflammatory acne. It also is possible to take antibiotics in pill form–such as doxycycline, minocycline or tetracycline.

      You have to wash your face for a minimum of 4-6 times a day. This will give the wetness to the face and help remove the excess oil stored in affected region. You can either wash it using a cold or warm water. Facial steaming can be done about once a week to open up your pores and loosen up the buildup of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. Add four tablespoons of baking soda in a cup of warm mineral water. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it for about 10 minutes. Finally, remove the mask and follow up with a moisturizer. Preferably, follow this remedy after facial steaming. Soak some tea tree oil on a cotton ball and dab on the affected area to fight bacteria and cure blackheads, whiteheads, and acne breakouts.Add a tablespoon of honey in two tablespoons of oatmeal. Heat the mixture slightly in a microwave. Apply it on your face and after 20 minutes, remove it with lukewarm water to clear blocked pores. Instead of honey, you can combine oatmeal with plain yogurt, too. After exfoliation, wrap an ice cube in a piece of cotton cloth and run it over your face. It helps close the pores.

      Make sure that you keep your face clean by washing it with an excellent facial cleanser (particularly one which contains salicylic acid or alpha hydroxyl acids) atleast twice a day.Exfoliation helps skin stay clean and glowing. Make it a habit of exfoliating your skin twice or three times a week. Apply an exfoliating scrub over your face in gentle circular movements, pertaining slight pressure around your forehead, nose and cheeks the whiteheads target zones. Steaming is an excellent method for cleansing your skin. So, don’t forget to steam once a week for a few minutes. Steaming helps in cleaning your skin from deeply embedded debris. Take cornstarch (absorbs oil) and apple cider vinegar (works as an astringent) in a ratio of 3:1. Mix both the ingredients in a bowl and apply the resultant paste on the affected area for about 15-30 minutes. Finally, wipe it off with a clean washcloth and wash your face with lukewarm water, followed by a cold water rinse to close the pores. Grind a handful of blanched almonds. Take two tablespoons of this paste and a tablespoon of pure honey (preferably manuka honey) and a little lemon juice. Exfoliate your skin with this almond and honey facial scrub and wash it off after 15-20 minutes.

They don’t hurt or swell up or even form a white head but they won’t go away. I’ve tried steam then pushing on them sometimes white stuff comes out sometimes nothing. Even when stuff comes out it doesn’t go away. I’ve tried scrbs, masks,over the counter ance meds, proactive, home remendys and much more nothing helps. My skin is oily and I do wash it with face wash twice a day. What is there left for me to do besides go to the dr. ? Please please help.

      As and when you find a bump, steer clear of oily food, chocolates, soda pop and potato chips. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. The use of soaps, cleansers and scrubs can irritate and redden the area. So , try to avoid them. Use apple cider vinegar as a facial wash, just before getting into the bed, at night. Mix nutmeg, pepper and a little water, to form a paste. Apply on the pimples, let it dry and then wash it off.Take 10 grams of white onion juice and mix it with 5 grams honey and 1 gram rock salt. Apply this mixture on the bumps. Take equal quantities of rice, poppy seeds and almonds and grind them to a paste. Mix the paste with 2 tablespoons of curd and apply onto your face. Let it dry for 10 minutes and then wash it off. mixing 1½ tablespoons of honey and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, into a paste. Before retiring to the bed, this paste can be applied to the affected area. Make sure to wash the mixture with warm water, in the morning.

      You can make a pack at home by combining one tablespoon of plain yogurt, two tablespoons of ground oatmeal, one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice, rosewater, or honey. Apply it on the affected area. Leave it for half an hour and then rinse it off. Massage your scars Along with castor oil you can also use Vitamin E oil, coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil to cure. Another option is to make a mixture with equal amounts of red currant juice, lemon juice, orange juice and parsley juice. Applying with the mixture on the affected skin area once daily. At morning with empty stomach drink at least 2 glass of water. At night apply raw milk on your face and leave it over night next morning rinse it off.

      Understand that cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue than common acne. Wash your face twice a day with a gentle, water-soluble cleanser. Water-soluble cleansers are gentler than harsher cleansers and just as effective. Make sure to properly moisturize after each wash. Exfoliate at least once a week, preferably with a salicylic acid-based exfoliant. Pay attention to diet.Reduce the amount of stress you’re under. Get enough sleep. Drink water. Try applying cortisone to reduce inflammation and fade creams to make scars less visible. Mix a small amount of baking soda with water and apply to affected areas no more than once or twice a week. Another remedy involving baking soda calls for the mixing of a small amount of baking soda and sea salt together with water to create a paste that treats inflamed cystic acne. Clear your complexion by using honey and aspirin for a combination remedy. Crush an aspirin and mix with water until a paste is formed. Apply to the face and rinse off. The aspirin acts as an effective exfoliant. Follow-up with an application of honey, which offers a moisturizing, antibacterial treatment Some people have reported results in treating their cystic acne by applying egg whites to the skin. Orange or yellow-orange fruits and vegetables have a reputation for replenishing the skin. Create a mango paste for your face to soften skin, achieve a natural glow, and open clogged pores that can lead to or worsen cystic acne.

    Hi Hira! I have lots of whiteheads and acne on my cheeks and chin. Can anyone help me deal with this? Is it okay if i leave the baking soda on my target areas(acne and whiteheads) overnight? Also, how long does it take to remove my whiteheads? Thank you :)

      Try reducing the amount of fat you eat. Excess fat contributes to white heads. Also, use a clay mask once a week to control oil. To get rid of a whitehead, open the pores first with steam. Then, use a sugar scrub. Put a warm compress on them. Use very warm tap water and a cotton ball, wash cloth, etc. Hold it on the whitehead for 10 minutes a few times a day. The head will make it heal faster. Peel and mash a small tomato. Apply the tomato pulp to your blackheads and whiteheads before going to bed. Leave the tomato pulp on your face while you sleep and then wash your face with warm water in the morning. Mix three tablespoons of plain yogurt with two tablespoons of oatmeal. Add one teaspoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of lemon juice to the mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly and apply it to the effective area of the face. Let the mixture sit for five to seven minutes then rinse off with cold water.

      Use honey hair pack once in a month. Use different hair pack every week. Don’t be stuck to one method. Soak 7-8 almonds in water for 12 hours Peel and crush them Add a little milk to make a paste Apply on blemishes Leave it overnight Wash with cold water in the morning Do this for at least 2 weeks. Salt will not make your skin dark but when you are exfoliating your skin with crushed salt at that time don’t be over do and harsh.

      Add egg with yogurt, 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil or almond oil. Mix all the ingredients well and apply it on your hair. Allow the pack to be on the hair for forty-five minutes. Your hair will be totally conditioned and you also get shinning and gorgeous hair, promptly! Take juice of one lemon and an egg and blend it well. Use it on your complete hair. Leave it for half-an-hour and then shampoo your hair. This pack adds sheen, volume along with softness for your locks.
      Mix four tablespoons of Multani mitti, half a cup of yogurt, juice of half a lemon and two teaspoons of honey together. Apply this pack on your hair and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off using a mild shampoo.

    Hi :) I’m 18 yr old and I’m having white heads and pimples for the past 10 years. I’ve been told that its due to genetic factors but only I’ve got this for such a long term in my family. This has resulted into big holes on my face leaving scars all over my body. The dermatologist said that there is no effective treatment and this would continue to appear each 2 year, provided I continue to take the Doxicip tablet along with Benzoyl peroxide.However doxicip has some dangerous negative effects while Benzoly peroxide causes scars. I’ve tried many natural facial remedies but the results persists to be negative. Can you please suggest some effective natural remedies? Thanks in advance ^_^

      Gently exfoliate the skin surface with a natural scrub or a quality ready made scrub to remove already formed blackheads and dead skin which can clog the pores. It should be repeated at least 3 to 4 times a week at the initial stage, and can be reduced with the time and when blackheads vanish.Apply skin toner on the skin surface to shrink the pores on the surface of skin. Create your own homemade facial scrub using rice or oat flour. By facial scrub treatment, you are not just removing the existing whiteheads but also getting rid of skin oiliness that caused the formation of whiteheads in the first place. make your homemade facial cleanser by mixing 2 tablespoon of fresh milk with a tablespoon of lemon extract and a tablespoon of salt. Apply it on the skin and rub gently. Wash it off with water afterwards. Just mix water with the paste of fresh fenugreek leaves and apply it onto the face. Leave it there overnight. In the next morning, rinse it off with lukewarm water.

      I’ve been doing the olive oil massage routine for 2 days now and it’s amazing how all those blackheads and whiteheads are coming out. For best and fastest results do forward and back (not circular) massage for 15 to 30 minutes daily (can be in 2 or more sessions). Massage with front and tips of fingers and whole of hand where possible. It’s a permanent cure. I like to get a washcloth very hot with steaming water from the sink and apply a corner of the washcloth to the whitehead with gentle pressure for as long as the washcloth is hot. Repeat step 1 a couple of times.Apply a drop of tea tree oil You NEVER want to pinch, squeeze or aggravate whiteheads, plenty of pure drinking water during the day helps to skin the skin subtle, soft and aids in the skin detoxifying toxins.

    Hi, I am Reena. My problem is I have started taking honey with water in morning from past 2 years. From last 1-2 yr I am suffering from white and red itchy bumps on face. This year the problem exaggerated. Some one suggested to apply honey. I applied honey and itching started and my whole face become red because of it and this lasted for 30 mins. Can it be because of allergy to honey. And normally this allergy takes place when winter starts, as in winters only I generally take honey? pls suggest some remedy.

          You can buy some green tea (very good to drink as it’s full on anti-oxidants). After drinking the tea open up the tea bag and use the contents as a face scrub. Apply a paste of fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves over the face every night for 10-15 minutes and washed with warm water. This will prevent pimples, blackheads, and wrinkles. Mix groundnut oil with an equal amtount of fresh lime juice and apply on face. Leave for 10-15 minutes and wash. It may be applied daily to prevent formation of blackheads and pimples. Mash grapes finely to make a smooth pulp. Apply it directly on the face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash off with warm water. A grape pack is very effective in maintaining the acid balance of normal skin. This a effective cure for blackheads. Take one tablespoon black pepper powder and add to it enough curd to make thick paste. Apply on the infected area and let it dry. Wash off after 5-7 minutes. This is an effective cure for blackheads or to get rid of blackheads.

      Try this simple remedy. Wash your face twice a day in warm salty water. This should leave your face oil free without aggravating the pimples like soap. The secret of keeping the skin clear is to keep it oil-free and clean. f you have bad skin you have a vitamin A and D deficiency. and guess what? these are contained in coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, cod liver oil and even jojoba oil. they do not clog your pores at all. coconut oil is great for your face. yes it would remove scars and pimples but dont expect results over night. use it as a night cream. try steaming your face with it. do the usual things to help your skin heal, eat the right foods, drink loadsa water. try supplements to help provide missing nutrients from your diet to bring you body’s state to a balance. cod liver oil is a very good supplement to take. stick to washing your face only in the morning and in the evening. if you need to wash it any other time just use water. at night when washing you face use exfoliating glove to wash your face with the soap. it will help your skin glow and feel smooth and soft. this because you have buffed away the thin layer of dead skin cells that accumulates throughout the day. buffing this dead skin away will keep it from clogging pores which can lead to blackheads, whiteheads and acne.

    I don’t know what I have since I always see whiteheads mentioned as hard white bumps. What I have seems to be white blackheads. I do have oily skin and large pores particularly around my nose. I have tried using jojoba oil to clean my skin and rose water afterwards to get rid of oily feeling, but now I am using a AHA cleanser, with a hyaluronic serum then a balancing spray. Still have the problem so I use a metal facial blackhead remover. I have used honey and rinsed with warm water on occasion. It seemed to help for a while. Where do I go from here? Some times I feel as though whatever I use to clean etc. is just immediately going into my pores exacerbating my problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    • says

      Large pores on facial skin can be treated with paste of sandalwood powder with black gram. Keep it overnight and wash it with cold water the next day.
      Make a sandalwood paste with rose water and apply on the scars. Keep it overnight and wash it with cold water the next day. If you find that your skin becomes dry in the morning, you leave it only for a few hours on your face or you may try adding some milk while making paste.
      Rub ice cubes on the face for 10-15 minutes. It will tighten the pores.
      Apply cucumber juice on the face. Wash it off after 15 minutes. It will tighten the pores.
      Cut the tomato in half and rub on the skin. Leave on for fifteen minutes. Wash it off with water. This will reduce open pores and blackheads. This treatment is good particularly for oily skin.
      Cornflour+honey will help to close the pores
      Fenugreek leaves+water-make it as paste it will remove blackheads,whiteheads, pimples and close d pores too
      I hope this will help u.Try any one of these concepts.it will surely work

      main cause of acne are your body’s hormones, we can’t fix those with a change in diet. For me i go to the gym about 5 days a week, and excercise. when you wake up in Morning b4 breakfast take one Glass of warm water mixed wid 2 tables spoons of lemon juice. 1 teaspoon lemon juice In spite of a small bowl. Use a cotton swab to soak up the juices. Dilute with water if it burns. So so not eat greasy food, funk foods, spicy Foods, specially made with red pepper eat foods which made with black pepper. Eat lots of healthy, natural foods, eat juicy fruits and vegetables. Drink a lot of water. Wash your face whenever you can, but don’t dry it up. Don’t touch your face with your germy hands or pick/poke blemishes, it just makes it worse. Wash your hair; the oil from your head runs down onto your face.

      Warm a small amount of honey and apply on the affected area. Wash off after 10 minutes. It acts as a natural peel and loosens the blackheads. Make a solution of lime juice, almond oil and glycerin and apply on the face. This will not only help with blackheads but also get rid of spots on the face. Use Oriflame Blackhead Remover.

      Put tea bags under the eyes for 20 minutes everyday. You can just wet the bags with lukewarm water and place it under the eye when it has cooled down or chilled. massage almond oil with honey around the eyes before going to bed. This will lighten the skin around eyes and brighten it considerably. Also, try gentle massage around eyes while taking shower.

      To get rid of them, you should wash your face twice a day with a good cleanser, and before you wash its best to wipe your face with a warm rap to open up your pores. like i said, never squeeze your whiteheads, Clean your face twice a day with skincare prods that are right for your skin type. exfoliate your skin regularly. once a week its best to steam your face, steaming looses the dirt in your pores that can lead to pimples. always drink water to hydrate your skin and to take away the toxins in your skin. always apply a toner after cleansing your face in the morning and in the evening. remember to remove your makeup in the evening to. take some multi vits each day. apply toothpaste on your whiteheads at night. at morning wash it off.

  78. Mint says

    Hi Hira,

    I am very impressed with your blog and really appreciate your talent and hard work. I wanted to add something that I hope you will pay attention to. While the putting baking soda on pimples probably won’t scar the skin, what you recommended in your original post (putting a baking soda and water mask on your face) unfortunately has a high chance of being irritating and detrimental to the skin. Baking soda can be stripping, and it’s highly unadvisable to use it without some kind of an acidic toner afterward as it can increase the ph of the skin, making it more basic.

    I hope that Hira will alter your original post and include this information, as no one wants to hurt their skin.
    Thanks for listening,
    ~Mint

    Hello, i’m noticing small white bumps on the skin at the side of my eyes, they’re very small. I got them from putting too much moisturizor on it. What can I do to get rid of them?

    • says

      Don’t worry about it, It’s no big deal, just wash your face well after practice and you should start seeing a difference. Don’t change your rountine, protein and exercise are good for you! So keep up with it, just remember to wash your face afterwards. Only way to clear them up is to drink at least 10 cups of water a day til they’re gone. The water will help your skin regenerate naturally.

      Once or twice a week you need to exfoliate your face with a gentle scrub (no drugstore apricot scrubs – they’re way too harsh!) or a product. You will need:
      ½ cup hot water (do not boil)

      1/3 cup quick oatmeal (the label should say 1 minute or 3 minute cooking time)

      2 tablespoons plain yogurt

      2 tablespoons honey

      1 egg white from a small egg

      First, mix water and oatmeal. Set this aside to thicken. It should form a paste. While the oatmeal is thickening, mix the other ingredients with a mixer. Add the oatmeal paste and mix until the mixture is well blended.
      To use, apply a fairly thin layer evenly to the face, avoiding the eyelids. However, if you do get this masque in your eyes, just rinse out with warm water. No contents of this mixture should cause harm to the eyes. Leave on your face for 10 to 15 minutes. Your face should feel tight, but the masque does not need to dry completely to work. When your time is up, simply rinse your face with warm water.
      This mixture should be just enough for one application. If you have any left over, you can refrigerate it for up to one week.

    Hey Hira.. i’ve gone through ur page. I really liked it. Hira I need ur help i’m 17. previously I had very clear skin. bt an year ago I started getting lots of pimples nd acnes all over my cheeks and chin because once I did a strong make up during a function. I wasn’t used to it n I have sensitive skin.I have always been worried about my skin condition. I started popping up the pimples nd as a result I got dark scars. so to heal those scars i applied peeling cream nd it was stupid of me to do so. moreover the cream made my scars more worse, they still exist. moreover beneath the same skin region I have got whiteheads. so plz help me..I m losing confidence because of my spoiled skin. plz m afraid of looking myself over a mirror. :-(

      First of all stop using any thing and start drinking 10 glasses of water daily. Fruits and vegetables contain lots of vitamins and minerals that can help your skin restore its former beauty. They also contain juices which keep your body hydrated every day. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to make your skin grow healthier and heal acne scars. Tomato also has antioxidant properties that rejuvenate damaged skin. Slice up a tomato every day and place it over your face to quickly reduce your scars. Massage the olive oil on affected parts of your skin every day. Mix one tablespoon of sour cream with one tablespoon of oatmeal and yogurt, then add a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture on your acne scars and leave it there for about 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse it off and pat it dry.

    The next time you have oily skin skin remedies for acne should give preference to non-comedogenic lotions
    which is very oily and you’re less likely to get pimples.
    I have to know what ingredients do they contain very few vitamins
    and minerals that are present, this can’t be an absolute nightmare to deal
    with oily skin is different. Now this is mainly genetic; some of these brands control the levels of skin remedies for
    acne androgens, will help to soak up some of the
    milk off.

    I’m being honest here. I’m honestly, honestly telling my story. So, I had whiteheads on my chin, they were pretty bad. I then fell on pavement and scratched them. They were huge, red welts everywhere. I was to the point were I could barely eat anything and refused to talk, because it hurt too much. I tried everything to get rid of them. I then resorted to desperate measures. I mixed one part lemon juice and one part toothpaste, and no flipping joke, they were gone. I put this paste on my face for about 3 hours. IF YOU THINK THIS STORYIS A LIE FUXK OFF BUT IF YOU DON’T, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOING THIS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

    Extensive array lights emit light’s same rings as the standard but the conventional produce larger concentrations of artists that are red and blue that the crops must expand.
    If you should be planning to expand on a largescale, you may
    be involved to understand that fixtures and the regular fluorescent lamps, the type which are found in industrial light, work well when applied
    in addition to standard Gro- lamps. You be
    very content with our benefits and possibly can develop a good crop of
    crops beneath the normal result lights. The distinction in using the VHO or HO bulbs is the occasion it takes
    to develop a scalp. Under a light, the plants develop at a price that is
    three instances the price of which they develop under the regular lamps.
    Folks have been known to get yourself a plant that is not four-feet short in two months under one
    of these simple lamps.

    Assalamoalaikum Hira!
    For the past year or two, i have had soo many pimples, white heads, and black heads. I tried steaming and using the face strips, but it just doesn’t work for me! It seems as though it gets worse and worse every day. My doctor actually prescribed me a medicated face wash and cream. I have been using that as much as possible, but it hasn’t been getting better. Any tips for me? Plzzzz reply Hira, and also can u tell me what a clay mask is?
    Jazakullah Soooo much,
    Taha

      I will tell you a mask just apply it before going to bed and next morning wash your face. Take 2 tablespoon oats just grind them finely, one tablespoon yoghurt, 1 tablespoon honey, one teaspoon lemon juice and few drops of rose water. mix them together and apply on your skin. After a hot shower, pull the skin back away from the center white head. The white should start to come out. Then push skin back towards center… UNDER the infection. The puss should come out. wipe away with clean tissue, and then use a mild alcohol type astringint to keep it clean. apply toothpaste on them at nighttime..put rubbing alchol on them to dry to them out. drinking plenty of water does wonders for skin, the water is needed to get rid of waste and oils so drink water and eat lots of fresh fruit/vegies and nuts.
