Most people have to deal with skin problems at some point in their lives. Whether it’s acne during puberty or clogged pores as an adult, keeping your skin clear and blemish-free is no easy task. Of course there are hundreds of products available that claim they can help you with your particular problem, but they are usually very expensive and not always suitable for all skin types.
But a young YouTube star who goes by the name of Alexandra offers really good advice for keeping your pores clean, and it only requires three simple ingredients and a toothbrush!
You will need:
A clean, unused toothbrush
1 tablespoon of toothpaste
1 tablespoon baking powder
some warm water
Cleanse your skin
Wash your face first and then use a washcloth soaked in hot water to warm all areas of the skin where you have blackheads. This will open the pores.
Make the mix
Pour the baking powder, water, and toothpaste into a bowl and mix together.
Put on the mask
Now take the paste and apply it generously on the areas where you have blackheads
Use the toothbrush to massage the paste into the pores. It is very important to make sure that the brush is very clean before using it in this step.
After you’ve combed the paste well, leave it on for about a minute. Now you can wipe it off with a towel, but be gentle; Your skin will be very sensitive at this point.
To finish cleansing your pores, wash off the rest of the paste with warm water. The result will surprise you! Your skin has never been so clean. You can review all the steps in this video:
