Blackheads are those nasty, small bumps on the skin that actually are plug of sebum in a hair follicle that is darkened by oxidation. Blackheads mostly occur on the skin on the face, but at some people they appear on the back, chest, neck, arms and shoulders.
Blackheads are formed when a clog or plug develops in the opening of hair follicles in the skin. Each follicle contains one hair and sebaceous gland that produces oil – sebum that keeps our skin soft. When dead skin cells and oils collect into the skin pore or more precisely the opening of the skin follicle, bump called comedone forms. When the skin over the bump opens, as a result of exposure to the air, it becomes black and blackhead forms. If the skin over the bump stays closed, that bump is called whitehead.
Below we are going to present you mask that is incredibly efficient and will remove the blackheads.
You will need:

Preparation and use:
In a small bowl add 1 tablespoon salt and 2 tablespoons of mint toothpaste and stir until you get homogenous paste. Then, apply the resulted paste on the nose and all areas of your skin where you have blackheads and leave it dry about 5 minutes. After that, using cotton bud, apply some water over it and then with your fingers gently massage with circular motions. Once the nose gets cleaned, in order to close your pores, gently rub the ice cube.
