Get rid of blackheads fast!

Removing blackheads is one of the most daunting and expensive tasks ever if you rely on expensive estheticians. But with just the right products these pesky little plugs can be erased without much pain.

The secret to removing blackheads relies on dissolving the plugs within the pores. These plugs are made of excess oil, dirt, makeup, dead skin cells and bacteria.

For this 2 step treatment your will need:
A clean towel big enough to cover your head,
A sauce pan,
2 cups of filtered water,
Wildflowers Bath Tea
2 teaspoons of baking soda,
2 teaspoons of fine sea salt,
Bulgarian Lavender & Mandarin Facial Foaming Cleanser

Step 1 - Facial Steaming
Facial steaming can offer some big benefits. The moisture softens the surface layer of dead skins cells called the stratum corneum and those pesky black plugs. Water steam is good but herbal steaming even better!

First remove all makeup traces from face and get everything ready. You should always steam on clean skin free of makeup.

In a saucepan boil the 2 cups of filtered water for about 5-10 minutes. Turn off the heat and add 2 teaspoons of Wildflowers Bath Tea to the water. Let the water cool down to around 45-50 degrees Celsius (113 – 122 degrees Fahrenheit). If you want, transfer the water to a bowl. With the towel fully opened and behind your hear, slowly get closer to the steam, at about 30 centimeters (1 foot), but don’t get too close. If you get too close to the vapor, you could scald your skin. The increased blood flow could also lead to broken capillaries under your skin. Steam for about 5-10 minutes.


Step 2 - Desincrustation
Desincrustration refers to the process of removing the blockage or plugs we commonly know as blackheads from within the pores. Although many estheticians and dermatologists believe in squeezing them out, this inevitably leaves scars and marks on the skin. The best approach to remove them is to melt them away.

Mix the 2 teaspoons of baking soda, 2 teaspoons of fine sea salt, with 1 teaspoons of Bulgarian Lavender & Mandarin Facial Foaming Cleanser. Have this mix ready before starting step 1, as you will need it immediately after.

Now that the skin and plugs are softer, right after removing your face from the steam, apply the cleanser/baking soda/salt mix to face with a cotton ball or brush and leave for 5 minutes. Because Bulgarian Lavender & Mandarin Facial Foaming Cleanser is pH balanced your skin won’t get dry or irritated. After the time has passed wet your hands with lukewarm water and with your fingertips massage the solution throughout your face to deeply remove the debris from deep down pores for about a minute. Rinse off with warm water and apply a toner and moisturizer as usual.

Repeat this process once a week to completely get rid of all blackheads, and repeat twice a month to keep pores free of debris. Remember to always remove your makeup before heading to bed every night to keep your skin free of impurities. Sleeping with your makeup on, increases your chances to develop blackheads and pimples.

Lisa Vaughan from Baltimore, MD... I use all in the facial system (except haven't tried, but just ordered a clay mask) including the serums and creams. The Lavender products work wonderfully for my--- middle aged skin. This system is by far superior to any I have used prior! I chose Barista, as it's my favorite, but close second is the toner. My face truly thanks you, byvalenti~... Read More Testimonials...
