Posted By:

Most of us, regardless of our skin type, would have experienced the nastiness of minor skin issues, at least a few times in our lives.

Acne, pigmentation, dry patches and so on, can make our complexion look unhealthy and quite unattractive as well!

A dull, lifeless complexion can be a sign of poor health and undesirable lifestyle choices.

Blackheads and whiteheads are also skin conditions that are usually seen on the face, giving you a messy appearance.

No matter how much makeup you use to cover-up the blackheads and whiteheads, they still tend to be visible, making your skin tone look uneven.

Whiteheads are developed on the skin when the excess sebum produced clogs the pores and along with the bacteria forms pustules.

Whiteheads can be caused by various reasons such as hormonal changes, increase in the androgen levels, oily skin, lack of hygiene, heredity, side effects of makeup, lotions, medications, etc.

Many people consult professionals to help reduce whiteheads, but that idea may prove to be expensive and also, the topical medications they prescribe may come with a lot of side effects.

So, if you are looking for a homemade remedy to eliminate whiteheads, then you should try this rice flour and rose water face pack for sure.

Recipe To Prepare The Face Pack

Ingredients Required:

  • Rice flour - 2 tablespoons 
  • Rose water - 2-3 teaspoons

Rice flour is known to be an excellent skin-exfoliating agent, which can scrub away the dead cell layer on your skin and make your complexion brighter.

In addition, rice flour can also unclog pores and eliminate sebum and impurities that are trapped inside, thereby reducing whiteheads effectively. Rice flour can also nourish your skin and make your complexion visibly smoother.

Rose water is a natural toner that can reduce the size of your skin pores and minimise the production of sebum in your skin, thus eliminating the occurrence of whiteheads.

In addition, rose water can also hydrate your skin and keep it well moisturised and soft.
