Home Remedies for Blackheads
#1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is one of the cheapest and easiest way to get rid of blackheads because it’s a natural cleanser, anti-spetic, and exfoliator. Simply mix a teaspoon with a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the affected areas (nose, chin, etc..) and leave on for a few minutes or until it dries. Remove paste by gently scrubbing in slow circular motions. Rinse off and pat dry. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
Cinnamon is a natural anti-bacterial which helps to remove dirt and debris and therefore preventing blackheads. Mix one part cinnamon with two parts honey and apply all over face or just to affected area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
Lemons are an amazing way to remove blackheads due to their natural whitening, cleansing and anti-septic properties. Cut a lemon in half and dip it into sugar. Use the lemon to scrub it against your skin in slow, circular motions. The sugar will gently exfoliate while the lemon removes blackheads. Check out these 5 amazing beauty uses for lemons!
#4. Green Tea
Green tea is an anti-oxidant and helps to completely eliminate excess oil from the skin, which is one of the leading causes of blackheads. Steep two green tea bags and let the water cool. Then, take a cotton ball and dip it into the cooled down green tea. Apply to affected area and leave on overnight. Gentle enough to use every day!
The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric work wonders on blackheads and acne! Mix turmeric with coconut oil to form a paste and apply to affected area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off. Repeat 2-3 times a week.
