Blackheads can be a pain in the butt, and although there is no surefire way to get rid of them permanently, there are tons of ways to eliminate them temporarily. These 3 homemade blackhead eliminating treatments are super easy to whip up, and best of all, they really work. These treatments are all 100% natural and made with simple ingredients you can find around the home. These 3 homemade blackhead eliminating treatments don't just eliminate blackheads though, they also get rid of breakouts (and prevent them too!), and also get rid of acne scars.
3 Homemade Blackhead Eliminating Treatments – Recipes
#1. Baking Soda, Tea Tree Oil, and Coconut Oil Blackhead Eliminating Scrub
- 2-3 drops tea tree oil
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
Mix the three ingredients together and add a little bit of water to get a thick, paste-like consistency. Rub onto clean skin, concentrating on blackhead-prone areas such as nose, chin, and forehead. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and scrub off. Follow up with a light moisturizer. Repeat twice a week for up to a month.
#2. Lemon Juice
There is really nothing simpler and more effective than just plain old lemon juice! We recommend you use freshly squeezed, preferably organic lemon juice and just use a q-tip to apply it directly to blackheads. Leave on for 10-15 minutes OR even better, overnight. Apply 3 times a week to eliminate blackheads and reduce scars and dark spots.
#3. Oatmeal Scrub
- 1 tbsp ground oatmeal
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
Mix all of the above ingredients together until you get a smooth paste consistency. Gently massage into skin, focusing on blackhead-prone areas such as chin, nose, and forehead. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. Pat dry and follow up with a light moisturizer. Repeat 2-3 times a week until blackheads are gone!
NOTE: As with any homemade products, or even commercial products, it's important to test to make sure that you're not allergic to any of the ingredients!
