Whiteheads are a form of acne that look like small white bumps on the skin. Whiteheads are commonly found on the face, especially around the nose, chin, and forehead. Generally, whiteheads are not inflamed red bumps on the skin that are filled with pus. For many people, having one or two whiteheads is not usually a cause for worry, however, having many whiteheads on your nose and chin can make you feel very self-conscious. You may also have shiny, oily skin that is greasy to touch.
Homemade acne face masks are very effective at helping to treat and prevent acne outbreaks. The best face masks for acne contain natural ingredients that help to kill off bacteria that cause pimples. They also help to dry up excess oil and unclog pores from dead skin cells. Homemade acne face masks are also very easy and cheap to make. They usually just contain a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Natural acne face masks are also great at helping to prevent acne scars from forming.
Blackheads are a type of non-inflammatory acne that causes unsightly bumps on the nose and face to appear. Blackheads develop when excess oil (sebum) blocks the skin’s pores and turns a brownish-black color when exposed to the air. If the blocked pore or hair follicle becomes infected with bacteria, a pimple or a pustule will form and cause red, pus-filled bumps to appear that are typical of acne conditions.
Eggs are full of protein, essential vitamins, and minerals that make them a great natural treatment for healthy, strong, and shiny-looking hair. You can use both the egg yolk and the egg white together to create a nourishing egg hair mask to optimize the health of your hair. Depending on your hair condition, you may just want to use either the egg white or egg yolk to make a hair mask to strengthen hair.
One of the best ways to pamper your skin and keep yourself looking great is to use coconut oil on your face. Up until recently, the benefits of coconut oil for your face and skin were not widely known. However, the amazing properties of coconut oil mean that this versatile natural oil can be used for more than just cooking.
Many people assume that dandruff and dry scalp are the same condition but actually they are not. It is very easy to make that assumption because both dandruff and dry scalp can make the skin on the scalp itchy and cause dead flakes of skin to form. You may become aware that you have dandruff or dry scalp when you brush or comb your hair and dead skin flakes get shed and fall onto clothes, especially on and around the shoulders. The causes of these conditions differ greatly, and to successfully treat a scalp that is dry or to get rid of dandruff completely, it’s necessary to find out the root cause.
For many people, acne is a frustrating, and sometimes, a distressing skin condition which can affect more areas of their body than just the face. Acne can appear on any part of the body where sebaceous glands produce sebum, and back acne (or just called bacne for short) affects a surprising number of people. In fact, a study carried out on the prevalence of back acne found that bacne affects around 75% of acne patients.
After a passionate embrace with your partner, you may be a bit concerned or even shocked to find that you have been left with a hickey on your neck, arm, or another area of your body. Although a hickey or love bite isn’t a serious medical problem, most people want to get rid of a hickey as fast as possible, especially if it can be seen by others.
One of the consequences of shaving is that sooner or later you will probably get an ingrown hair which can cause a red, swollen lump around the hair follicle. Ingrown hairs are also called razor bumps and they occur when one or more hairs curl back and start growing back into the skin. The first symptom of an ingrown hair may be just a small pimple-like bump, but if you don’t remove the ingrown hair, it can cause infection leading to inflammation, swelling and a large painful bump containing pus.
Coconut milk is a creamy white liquid which is obtained by soaking the grated “flesh” of a mature coconut in water. Because coconut milk is rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids it is a great ingredient to use in natural beauty treatments to keep hair and skin looking and feeling healthy.
