Blackhead Buster

Acne-busting parsley soothes breakouts.

Old-fashioned potato salad just isn’t the same without a snip of fresh parsley. But what you do with a whole bunch of parsley when only need a snip? Use it clear your pores of course. Parsley has natural cleansing and softening properties that help naturally dislodge blackheads.

Here’s what you need:

  • A fistful of fresh parsley

Here’s what you do:

Wash parsley thoroughly and process in a blender or food processor just until smooth. Prepare a facial steam by bringing a pot of water to a boil, removing it from the heat and allowing it to cool slightly. Apply the green gunk to a clean face, focusing on areas prone to blackheads like forehead, hairline and nose. Drape a towel over the pot and steam your skin over the pot for about 5 minutes. Rinse off the mixture and use an exfoliating facial scrub to gently break up dead skin cells and dislodge blackheads.
