9. Baking Soda for Blackheads
Another common problem faced by teenage girls is blackheads due to clogged skin pores. Blackheads look like small dark or black bumps and primarily appear on the nose and forehead.
Girls who have oily skin and those undergoing hormonal changes in the body are more prone to this problem.
Using chemical peels and prescription treatments from a dermatologist who specializes in skin care can help get rid of blackheads, but both these options are expensive.
Instead you can try some cost-effective remedies at home, where you can use common household ingredients that can exfoliate the area and clean out your pores.
- One of the best and cheapest remedies for blackheads is baking soda. Make a paste of baking soda with a little water. Apply it on the affected area, leave it on for a few seconds and then rinse it off. Use this remedy once or twice a week.
- The oatmeal that you eat for breakfast can also help. Prepare a face pack with 2 tablespoons of oatmeal, 3 tablespoons of plain yogurt and a little lemon juice. Apply it on your face, wait 5 minutes and then scrub off the paste with wet hands. Then rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat once or twice a week.
10. Coconut Oil & Lemon Juice for Dandruff
Dandruff is another embarrassing problem that can give you nightmares. It is a very common problem that people of any age can suffer from, but is most likely in the early 20s.
Dandruff causes visible dry flakes of skin that shed from the scalp. When these flakes land on dark clothing, they cause a lot of embarrassment. Dandruff also makes the scalp itchy and oily.
This problem can be controlled by following a healthy hair care routine. You can also try some simple natural home remedies.
- Mix ¼ cup of warm coconut oil with the juice of half a lemon.
- Use it to massage your scalp, then wait 30 minutes before washing your hair.
- Use this remedy a couple of times per week.
