Steaming is an effective way of removing blackheads. It helps to relax and open the pores in your skin, which can help to clean them.

Directions
1. Fill a sink or bowl with hot water.

3. After, rinse your face with cold water and moisturize using a natural moisturizer.

Sugar is a good scrub in removing the blackheads from the face as it prevents the clogging of pores, acne, and whiteheads too.

Separate out the egg white and the yolk and take only the white in a bowl.

Now, after the second layer dries, place the tissue again and apply the third layer of egg white.
Leave it to dry for some time and rinse it with warm water.
