How to Cleanly Remove Blackheads Painlessly!

Hey momoluvers! Today in making another beauty tutorial and my last for a little while probably. This is a DIY that is super simple and effective. I don't know about you, but I get REALLY bad blackheads and I've always popped them with my nails. It was creating pimples, damaging skin, and downright hurting! I thought there had to be a better way! And luckily there is. I found this on YouTube, but they weren't very thorough with the instructions. So I decided to make my own tutorial!

Remember to vote for the hair and makeup contest, I really appreciate it!

Step 1: Supplies

1. Egg whites
2. Paper towel
3. Concealer brush
4. Face wash

Step 2: Prep

Put the separated egg whites in bowl.

Rip the paper towel in half (most paper towels have two layers, simply separate them.)

Step 3: First Layer.

Use the concealer brush to apply egg white liberally where you blackheads are.

Put a small square of paper towel on top of the egg white

Paint over it again with another layer.

Step 4: Add Layers

Let that dry and apply another layer. Apply at least 2-3 more layers and allow time to dry!

Step 5: Removal

When the nose feels like a cast and is a hard plastic texture, rip it off quickly.

Step 6: Wash the Face

Now wash your face with cleanser. I hope y'all enjoyed this tutorial! If you haven't already, subscribe, become a member of the farm family and give a cow its wings! Love y'all •_£

Great instructable! The naysayers always amaze me with their negativity but as my grandad would say, "Some people would complain if you hung them with a brand new rope". They don't even stop to think that you are trying to help them with an all too common embarrassment for teenagers and other ages also. No one else may notice, but you feel like everyone is looking at the blackheads and just want them gone. When you are young the mirror shows imperfections probably only you notice. When you get my age, the mirror shows what everyone sees, a wrinkled old man. Smiling makes wrinkles much harder to see so you gripers, shut up and smile. Life must really stink if all you can do is try to bring other people down.

Actually hens lay eggs without a rooster. In commercial farmers there are no roosters as they do not want the eggs fertilized. Those eggs, non fertilized, are refrigerated and sent to stores - no babies in them.

The existence of a non fertilized egg is simply impossible. Chickens aren't like fishes, wich fertilizates their egg after they give birth. That's the same reason because of the homounculus experiment can't be done.

I have a doubt: the white of an egg its not what you show in the third image, and as my mother tongue* its not the English but the Spanish, it confuses me.

*I don´t know if that's the correct term, so I'll explain it here: I was meaning to the tongue that you learn and use because it's of your native region.

I think those are egg whites - they're a little yellow from lighting perhaps.

Also, "mother tongue" makes sense and is used in English, but "native language" is a more common phrase for this thing.

I have found that you can prevent blackheads easily by using yogurt
with active cultures everyday as a face wash. Makes your skin feel
great and doesn't dry it out either! Rub it on your face and let it sit
for a few minutes (or longer) then rinse it off.

Thanks for the nice ible! Going to try it!

KimkaschiIler: Thanks. I
don't care what the things are called, but I appreciated the information
that in this particular case, we should not expect their removal to be
long-lasting, and you presented it in a tactful and polite manner, along
with supporting facts.

Oldmanbreadboard, in addition to your
interesting name (Do you often bake bread?), you have given us an
amusing saying that I had never heard before. Really funny in a weird
way. However, I do think that the context suggests that the complaining
people are being executed, and not attached to a wall as decorations,


I know this is off topic, so, people not interested in how languages change, please skip the following.

In defense of Shawnda and English grammar, and more for Luapy than for the bread maker:

There are two verbs that have different past tenses and past participles from each other, depending on the meaning.

hang - hung - hung: "I used some special hardware to hang the new
picture; but after I had hung it on the living room wall, my wife
insisted that I move it, leaving a nail hole where it had been.

hang (as in "stringing someone up") "In the old days, even petty
thieves were sometimes hanged." "The judge sentenced the murderer "to be
hanged by the neck until dead."

It is the use of "hung" in Oldmanbreadboard's comment that would not make sense.

is a similar problem with lie/lay/lain (as when resting on a bed) and
lay/laid/laid (as when putting an object down somewhere). When enough
people keep using a verb incorrectly, eventually that leads to a big
change in English grammar, and the new usage becomes the correct one. So very likely the day will come when Luapy is right. But not yet.

Meanwhile, we are in for a
period of time during which purists complain about mistakes and the rest
of us may sometimes resent being corrected for things we have been
saying all our lives. It was ever thus!

My name is from breadboarding electronic experiments which I have played with for about 53 years. You can guess the old man part, that white hair is not dye. As for the use of the word "hung" in the context I used, that was a saying of my grandfather's and sometimes here in the rural south, especially a couple of generations back, local use of English was completely different from standard dialect. In fact, I knew one old gentleman who used to say he "ruck" leaves from his yard, and "clim" up the stairs. Instead of thank you, a lot of my elderly neighbors would say, "Much obliged". As a kid that always struck me as funny. As a radio comedian once said, " I don't know if I saw it or I seen it is correct, so I will say "I became aware of it", so those hash-mark intellectuals won't ruin my story."

i totally get what your trying to say you know with the word hung that people made a big deal out of i agree with what you were saying


Reply 2 years ago

Oldmanbreadboard, I'm probably closer to your age than most reading this post. I get it, I've heard this saying (about being hung with a new rope) pretty much all my life and it's something that most millennials don't understand, they tend to take things very literally. Thanks for your joviality! And for all others reading this please remember the "be nice" policy of this site.

"So very likely the day will come when Luapy is right. But not yet"

Please explain! or did you mean the day will come when my grandad will be right?

From the troll who never got the joke, to the smart arse who would like me to correct my grandads grammar in a "quote"

I don't know who is worserer LOL!!!
