How to Remove Blackheads Using Olive Oil
When the expensive over the counter products just aren't working anymore to clear up pesky blackheads you may find yourself looking for a new solution. Blackheads are recognized by the tiny dark spots they leave on your skin from the clogging of the pores. This temperamental form of acne demands separate attention from the other acne that face washes and cleanser can eliminate. An inexpensive and natural alternative to eliminate these blemishes is olive oil.
Pour a small amount of olive oil into the palm of your hand.
Massage the olive oil into your skin vigorously. This will help to work it into your skin and remove and dirt or makeup.
Allow the olive oil to stay on your skin and work on your pores for 10 to 15 minutes.
Run a clean cloth under hot water and wring it out well.
Place the cloth over your face to cover up your blackheads and don't remove it until it is cool. The steam will help to further loosen the dirt that was clogged in your pores causing the blackheads.
Remove the wash cloth and run it under hot water a second time for another steam application. The repeated steam from the cloth will help to rinse your face.
Remove the cloth when it is cool and pat your skin dry gently with a soft clean dry towel.
