Men get blackheads too! Not an astonishing fact, I know but it is now even easier for men to deal with their problem blemishes by using a mud face mask as an effective blackhead removal tool.
A mud face mask is especially suited to deep cleansing pores. These are hugely beneficial for both men and women and not only are they are a very effective deep cleanser for the skin, they also help to remove dead surface skin cells and impurities from within the pores.
One of the reasons why they are so popular with men in particular is they give great results without you having to spend too much time and effort on the process. Men want great looking skin too – they just don’t want to spend hours on their skin care routine!
Mud masks are also especially for men who may suffer from ingrown hairs. They are effective at helping combat this problem because of their exfoliating action and the way they unclog pores.
An ideal way to enjoy this relaxing facial treatment is to cleanse your face thoroughly first, using your normal cleansing routine. For an even deeper cleanse, you could use a facial steamer first to open your pores which will help the mask penetrate more effectively.
When you are ready to apply the mask, spread it thinly all over your face, being sure to avoid the sensitive skin around the eye area. Leave it to dry for around ten minutes or the time specified on the packet. A good idea is to sit back in a comfy chair, close your eyes and relax. Try not to move your face by laughing, talking or eating during this time as the mask will crack – this not only makes it less effective but make you look very strange indeed! Once it has completely dried, you can remove it using warm water and a soft wash cloth.

Useful Tip for Using A Mud Mask
Remember if you are using this in your bathroom and washing the residue down the plug hole as you remove it, remember to flush water down afterwards to avoid any ‘silting up’ in the water pipes!
When you have removed the mask, pat your skin dry with a soft towel and apply a moisturiser as your skin could feel dry otherwise.
Another great benefit of using a mud mask as a treatment for blackhead removal for men is that you only need to use it once or twice a week (more often will make your skin too dry), so it is great for guys who do not want to spend hours on their skin care routines but who nevertheless want great looking skin.
