Removal of Blackheads

This is the best homemade facial mask for glowing skin tips to remove those ugly blackheads from the nose and also to naturally cleanse the skin of dead cells and impurities. A pinch of sea salt is taken first. It is then mixed well with freshly squeezed lemon juice. The mixture is then sauntered over with either a tablespoon of olive oil or a tablespoon of almond oil. The mixture is mixed well to make a paste. This paste is used to massage the entire face. This skin exercise will remove the blackheads deep within the skin. The mask is allowed to settle for a few minutes and then washed well with cold water thoroughly. The face is then dabbed with a clean soft towel cloth for that ever glowing skin feel.

General Face Scrub

The paste is made to be thick by continuously mixing it with the almond oil until it becomes thick and squishy. The paste is then applied on the face and allowed to dry for a few minutes. The paste is then gently washed off with cold water. The face is then daubed with a soft terry cloth to dry off. This is the best face scrub for all skin types.

Scrub Precautions

Only use pure sea salt for high level of facial skin care. Table salt, iodized, or kosher salts are not accepted. Sea salt is available in most of the convenience stores locally. The concentration should not be so high. To test it, put a pinch of the solution on fingertip and taste the solution. The solution should not be sourer than salted potato chips. Avoid using the salt masks if the skin type is sensitive.

The above mentioned are excellent homemade salt recipes for a perfect healthy skin. These skin enhancing tips can be used on a regular basis, like once or twice a week or as per convenience.

      I would never have thought that sea salt would be good for a face scrub. Interesting, and I will have to try this. Thanks.

      I did not have any idea that salt could be used in face scrub and mask. I am not into any sort of chemical based stuff for my face and use only home stuff like sugar, lemon juice, honey, tomato juice, gram flour etc. Good Hub, voted up!
