How To Use Hydrogen Peroxide To Remove Blackheads
Using a hydrogen peroxide treatment to remove blackheads is simple. All you need to do is:
Wash your face with a mild cleanser to remove any excess oil, bacteria and other impurities from your skin. Wash off with water and pat dry.
Next, exfoliate the areas of your skin that are affected by blackheads. You can use a homemade face scrub that is a paste made with sugar and water. It will be mildly abrasive to help in removing the oxidized blackhead surfaces. Rinse thoroughly.
Now it is time for the hydrogen peroxide treatment (2). Moisten a cotton ball with 3% hydrogen peroxide and gently dab your blackheads with it. Make sure that you avoid your eyebrows and hairline as it will bleach your hair.
Moisturize your skin with jojoba, avocado or olive oil while it is still damp.
