What is the reason for the formation of eels?
Small, black acne usually appear on the face in places where sebum production is highest. They can also be found on the cleavage, shoulders and back. Their clusters can be very large, which affects the aesthetic look. So what is this eels? These are skin defects that appear as a result of clogging hair follicles due to excess sebum and irregular epidermis detachment. Their dark color is the result of the oxidation of melanin contained in epidermal cells.
How to deal with eels?
It is not recommended to compress the eels on their own, because in this way it is easy to infect the skin, which in turn can lead to scarring. Usually, regular scrubs and cleansing masks are enough to fight them. You can make them yourself at home or use the finished drugs available at pharmacies.
Every now and then it’s worth visiting a beautician who will save you from the flaws and your skin will become smooth and fresh. This cleansing can be manual or mechanical (microdermabrasion). Often the beautician also uses acid peels to exfoliate the skin and remove eels. If eels are accompanied by acne showing inflammation, then you will need to visit a dermatologist.
Homemade cosmetics against eels
One of the most effective home remedies for dealing with eels is a mask made of activated carbon. This cosmetic product is recommended mainly for people with oily and mixed skin. Capillary leather owners should apply the mask carefully, applying it only on the T zone, that is, on the forehead, nose and chin. In turn, people whose skin is sensitive or prone to irritation should abandon this product altogether.
Black eel mask has very good cleansing properties. When used regularly effectively eliminates the problem of eels. In addition, the components of this mask have additional antibacterial properties and contribute to the exfoliation of the callous epidermis. Once applied, the skin is well matted and the eels are removed. So the pores are unlocked and the skin becomes perfectly peeled. The homemade black mask also helps in the fight against free radicals, so it slows down the aging process and smooths the complexion.
Black Eel Mask – Mask’s recipes
with activated carbon can have different composition. Below are two recipes.
1. Mask with coal and bentonite clay
2 capsules of activated carbon powder or 2 tablets (it must be crushed with a teaspoon),
1-2 teaspoons bentonite clays,
1-2 teaspoons boiled and chilled water,
1 teaspoon apple vinegar.
Mix all the components of the mask until you get a uniform consistency. We use non-metallic tools to do this, because both clay and carbon attract toxins contained in metals. The face is thoroughly cleaned of makeup. Before applying the mask, cook hot water well to open the pores. To do this, take a plastic bowl in which we pour boiling water. Then we lean over its surface, cover our head with a towel and wait until the hot steam opens pores on our skin.
This should take a few minutes (until the water stops giving steam). Through this process, the effectiveness of the black mask against eels will be even higher. Thoroughly wipe your face with a towel and apply the finished mask. Remember to avoid delicate areas around the eyes and lips. After 10 minutes, wash your face with warm water and apply a moisturizer.
The beneficial effect of activated carbon is the ability to clean pores — our skin becomes smooth, free of eels. Bentonite clay, on the other hand, absorbs toxins and kills bacteria, making it one of the most effective clays used to cleanse the skin.
2. Activated charcoal and gelatin mask
2 teaspoons of gelatin powder,
2 capsules with activated charcoal,
some warm milk or water.
The ingredients of the mask are mixed in plastic or glassware. We add enough water to get a not-so-liquid consistency. Apply a thick layer of warm mixture to the cleansed skin of the face, avoiding eyes and lips, as well as eyebrows and hair lines. When the mask is completely dry gently remove it. She should come off in one piece. Wash the residue with water.
The skin becomes smooth and sanitized after application.
A homemade cleansing mask from eels is a hit of recent times. It’s easy to cook and at the same time – it’s cheap. When used regularly, at least once a week, it gives a very good effect of cleansed and matte skin. Remember, however, that simply using a mask is not enough to keep the skin in perfect condition. Daily care procedures are also needed, which consist of cleansing the skin of make-up and remaining sebum. Let’s not forget the peels that remove dead skin, helping to fight eels.
