3 DIY Blackhead Peel-Off Masks That’ll Unclog Your Pores Like Magic


When it comes to some of the most painful beauty procedures, getting blackheads extracted is right up there. Although the procedure barely takes a minute, when the parlour wali didi is busy digging the skin on our nose to extract that gooey mess, all of us are crying internally.

Blackheads are caused due to excessive secretion of oil and sebum and a build-up of dead skin and dirt in the pores. These happen anywhere on the skin but especially the oil-prone areas like the T-zone and chin.

There are of course many ways of dealing with them- blackhead removal strips and suction tools but why not try some at-home recipes for this? We are talking about DIY peel-off masks that not only make you glow but also help get rid of those blackheads for good.
