Black dots on the face are nothing more than an accumulation of sebum, dust, dead cells or dirt in the enlarged pores. When pollution accumulates, they protrude to the surface of the skin, and there they oxidize and turn black, turning into notorious black dots. Today we will consider the most effective black masks for black dots – the famous black mask, with activated charcoal and clay.
Rules for the use of black masks for black dots at home
To black masks for the black dots at home quickly brought the desired result, follow these simple rules …
- Cleanse your face – Wash with a washing-up liquid.
- Respire face to expand the pores for more efficient removal of black dots. To do this, you can resort to two methods. The first is to steam out your face with hot towels. Take a small terry towel and immersed in hot water (the temperature should be such that you put up your hands, to protect your hands you can use rubber gloves). When the towel is completely impregnated with water, it needs to be squeezed out so that no water drips from it, and then it is applied to the entire face, after a couple of minutes, repeat everything in a circle. For steaming, you will need about 3-4 repetitions. The second method is a steam bath.

- Course for masks – about a month, with a periodicity of 3-7 days.
Homemade Black Masks with Activated Charcoal and Clay
We turn to black masks for black dots, which are analogues of factory products and can easily be made at home …
- The first of these is a mask based on egg white and activated charcoal. 4-5 tablets of coal crush into powder, mix with a half of one protein and the resulting mass process places of accumulation of black dots. After 20-30 minutes, the same film is formed on the face, which we gently pry, we rip off and moisturize the skin with cream.
- An alternative to a mask with activated charcoal is a mask from black dots with sugar. For its preparation you will need one raw chicken protein and 0.5 tsp. Carefully separate the protein from the yolk, add sugar and whisk the protein until the foam forms. The resulting mask is applied in a thin even layer on the problem areas and start to tap lightly on it with the pads of your fingers until the moment you feel stickiness. After that, another layer of the protein mask is applied and also “driven” into the skin. Repeat manipulations until the entire composition is complete. Wait until the mask dries, and then rinse with warm water.
- The next mask uses black clay – an excellent absorbent, which literally “pulls” all the dirt from the pores, including black dots. A tablespoon of powder is diluted with lukewarm water to a thick slurry and applied to the areas of concentration of black dots. It is necessary to wait until the clay completely withered, after which it is washed off with water. This method is somewhat less effective than all the previous ones, and requires more frequent use, but due to the naturalness of the product is more suitable for sensitive skin.
