If you take a quick look at photos of female Korean celebrities on social media, you will notice right away that their skin are faultless — it seems like blackheads do not exist in their glamorous world. And when you take a look at selfies of ordinary female Koreans, their skin are just as blemish-free!
Perhaps it’s the way Korean women take good care of their skin, what else could it be?
So if you also want to keep your face devoid of blackheads, it’s a wonderful idea to know some of the best kept beauty secrets of Korean women. Well, you don’t have to sign up a top private detective to find out what they are. All you have to do is read on and see which of the following anti-blackhead steps deliver the best:
Egg White Mask
This is perhaps the simplest Korean way to get rid of those pesky blackheads, although there’s no denying that you will need lots of patience — it can take a while before the main ingredient, which is egg white, dry.
All you need to do is separate the egg white from the yolk. Beat the egg white until it’s frothy, and then apply on your face. Make sure that all those blackhead-prone areas such as your nose and cheeks are covered very well. Now wait for several minutes until the egg white mask is dry and your face feels tight and super cool to the touch.
Once completely dry, carefully peel off the mask starting from your chin and jaw line, going to your face. Afterwards, rinse off your face with cold water. Do this Korean blackhead remedy twice or thrice a week.
Brown Sugar Scrub
For the most stubborn blackheads, beauty-conscious Korean women have the perfect solution — brown sugar scrub. It’s an excellent way to drive those blackheads out of their hiding spots, which are your pores.
In a small mixing bowl, combine two tablespoons of brown sugar and a tablespoon of coconut oil. If you do not have coconut oil, opt for almond oil or olive oil — in fact, just about any vegetable oil around will do. Mix the ingredients and carefully massage on your face using your index and middle fingers. Make sure to avoid the eye area!
After about 1 to 2 minutes of gentle massaging, wash your face with the mildest facial wash on hand. Take note that this Korean secret should not be carried out more than twice a week.
There is a Korean beauty regimen that not only gets rid of those unsightly blackheads, but also brightens the complexion. Such involves the use of two to three pieces of large strawberries and nothing else!
What you have to do is mash strawberries in a small mixing bowl using a fork. By the way, the best strawberries for the job are those that are straight from the fridge — the cold helps shrink those large pores. Once mashed, apply all over your face and leave it there for about 20 minutes.
Afterwards, rinse off your face thoroughly with cold water. You will find that your face is free of blackheads and large pores, plus it also looks radiant. Do this once or twice a week only for superb results.
