There are many easily available natural ingredients that have superb properties to decongest skin and keep it free from developing blackheads and whiteheads.
Both rice and corn flour have oil absorption properties and any excess oil on the surface of the skin can be mopped up. Baking soda combines with the excess oils on the skin and via a process of saponification turns them into soap, which can then be simply washed off. This is great to dissolve skin congestion like blackheads and whiteheads. Castor oil has been highly recommended in Ayurveda for it deep cleaning and purging properties for skin. Purging of skin is a process that helps eliminate skin congestion. Blackheads and whiteheads are a sign of congested skin. It is also regarded for having natural anit-inflammatory properties.
