Here are home remedy products that will help you say goodbye to those pesky blackheads.

Exfoliating Your Skin

1. With Baking Soda

“Exfoliating is one of the only variables we do have control of when it comes to minimizing the appearance of blackheads, taking good care of your skin involves following a strict skincare routine where skin is properly cleansed, exfoliated and moisturized .Baking soda is an ingredient that is often used in microdermabrasion which as a method of exfoliating, can aid in minimizing blackheads when done regularly.” Mixed with water, baking soda can be used to create a gentle scrubbing paste .

Alternatively, you can use Apple Cider Vinegar instead of water, which has astringent and anti-bacterial properties and will similarly clear out pores. This mixture is one of the most effective remedy for acne. This is because; it helps in getting off the bacteria which causes a lot of trouble at the first place. Bacteria grow on a slightly acidic skin; applying vinegar to it makes the area alkaline and hence balances the pH level of the skin. It is also easy to make it as it just requires a bowl containing one part vinegar and 3 parts water. This remedy will not only remove acne from your face but will also help against oily skin.

2. Clay Masks

“I occasionally recommend facial masks  to use for deep cleaning that can in some circumstances help clean out pores, leaving them smoother looking, “Like with microdermabrasion, it needs to be done on a regular basis for best results.” abrasive pastes, powders and clay masks (with kaolin) gently exfoliate and help absorb existing oil, but it will accumulate again shortly after the product is used.”   

There are many different kinds of cosmetic clay available to purchase in a powdered form, each with the specialized property of drying out oily pores and removing unwanted residue. Bentonite clay is a mineral rich healing substance that has been used for centuries to treat a number of ailments, chiefly skin related. Because of its molecules “electrical charge” when wet, it does an amazing job of drawing out oils or other impurities locked in your pores. When you apply the mask your skin gets to drink in all the minerals, while the clay simultaneously draws out the blackhead. It also helps with circulation, which helps with overall skin tone and health.
Mix a tablespoon of powdered clay with enough apple cider vinegar to make a paste, and spread it over your face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes until it is dry to the touch, and then rinse off with warm water.

3. Try a lemon and salt exfoliant.

 The purifying qualities of lemon mixed with the scrubbing effects of salt help to remove all the grime buried deep in your pores. Mix lemon juice with a tablespoon of yogurt, a tablespoon of salt, and a bit of honey. Use this to scrub your blackhead-prone areas for 2-3 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

4. Make a green tea scrub.

Green tea is great to drink, and also great for refreshing your skin. Packed full of nutrients, a green tea scrub works to remove dirt while supplying your face with healthy antioxidants. Mix a fine green tea mix with a bit of water and rub over your face. If you want, you can leave it to set for 2-3 minutes after your scrub, and then simply rinse off with warm water.

5. Mix cornmeal with your facial soap.

Cornmeal is used as an abrasive exfoliant when combined with your regular liquid facial soap. Mix a teaspoon of the cornmeal with your favorite face wash and scrub your face gently in a circular pattern. Be careful not to scrub too roughly, as this could inadvertently damage your skin. Rinse the soap and cornmeal off with warm water.

6. Use a milk and nutmeg solution.

Possibly the best smelling exfoliant, the lactic acid of milk combined with the tough granules of nutmeg remove your blackheads quickly and in a pain-free manner. Mix a tablespoon of milk (particularly buttermilk) with enough nutmeg to create a paste. Apply this mixture to your face while gently scrubbing to remove dead skin and dirt. Then use regular warm water to rinse the mixture clear of your skin.

Cleansing To Remove Blackheads
1. Use honey and cinnamon.

Honey is a natural antibiotic and works to pull out dirt from your open pores. Mix a tablespoon of honey with ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon and use your fingers to dab it onto your dry skin. Rub it in a circular motion for three minutes and then wash off with warm water. Make sure to wash your hands before you start applying the mask.

Cinnamon & Honey Strips

Again, the anti-bacterial agents in the honey can help keep away bacteria that are causing acne as well as act as the adhesive to pull out anything clogging your pores. Cinnamon improves circulation, and this increased blood flow gives your skin a smooth, healthy, glow.
You will need…

– 1 part cinnamon powder

-1 part organic, raw, honey

-Clean strips of cotton

Mix the honey and the cinnamon together until you have enough paste to cover the affected area. Apply in a thin layer over the blackheads, and then press a strip of clean cotton over it. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes before removing and rinsing your face. Don’t forget to follow up with a moisturizer!

2. Try an egg-white mask.

Egg whites help to tighten pores and pull out any clogged dirt giving you smooth, clear skin. Remove the yolks from two eggs and smear it into a thin layer over your face. Give it two minutes to dry, then add the remaining whites in a second layer. Give the complete mask an additional 10-15 minutes to dry, or until the whites are smooth to the touch and your skin feels tight. Use warm water to rinse the whites off your face.

3. Try turmeric and mint juice.

Turmeric is an Indian spice which has been used in skin lightening treatments for thousands of yearswhile the mint creates a cooling“tightening” sensation on your skin. If the area around the blackhead is swollen or irritated, the menthol can help tame the inflammation. Inflammation can make it harder for whatever is clogging your pores to come loose in the first place. Both spices you likely have in your kitchen cupboard, turmeric and mint help to clean out dirty pores. Create a brew of mint tea and allow it to cool. Then, add two tablespoons of the liquid with a tablespoon of turmeric powder and apply it to your face. Leave it on for ten minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

4. Use a milk and nutmeg solution.


Possibly the best smelling exfoliant, the lactic acid of milk combined with the tough granules of nutmeg remove your blackheads quickly and in a pain-free manner. Mix a tablespoon of milk (particularly buttermilk) with enough nutmeg to create a paste. Apply this mixture to your face while gently scrubbing to remove dead skin and dirt. Then use regular warm water to rinse the mixture clear of your skin.


Toner for Tighter Pores

Since blackheads are caused by open, clogged, pores reacting to oxygen, it only makes sense that “shrinking” your pores down will help.

1. Lemon juice

Lemon juice is just the astringent substance needed to get the job done, however, it can lighten skin temporarily and it does make you sensitive to the sun, so load up on sunscreen if you plan on using this method in the summertime. If you have sensitive skin, try diluting the lemon juice with water first.

You will need…

-1 lemon

-cotton balls

-A small bottle

Rinse your face and pat dry. Squeeze the lemon juice into a small bottle and then use just enough to dampen a cotton ball. Apply to affected areas 3-4 times a week. Note: Don’t apply on your face till the next day, it might cause your skin to burn. Apply for about 10minute and wash with warm water. Morning and evening and apply moisturizer as usual. Store the rest of the juice in the refrigerator for up to a week. Be aware-the juice can sting sometimes if you have sensitive skin.

2. Cleansing Sugar Scrub

Sometimes all you need is a good exfoliating followed up by moisturizing. Exfoliating does one very important job-it sloughs away dead skin cells. These are the skin cells that could potentially clog up your pores, leading to acne, whiteheads, and of course, blackheads. It also temporarily revives circulation and it leaves you with a healthy glow and soft skin. If possible use jojoba oil, as it is the oil (technically liquid wax) that most closely mimics our skins own sebum. If you don’t have jojoba oil, grapeseed, olive, or sweet almond oil are all fine substitutes.

3. Try Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a very soothing substance, which can help to ease redness and fade discoloration. It is also very moisturizing on the skin, which aids skin rejuvenation. To use aloe vera, break a leave off of an aloe vera plant and rub the gel-like sap over the skin. Aloe vera is very gentle so it’s not necessary to rinse it off, however you may prefer to remove it if it makes your skin feel sticky.

4. Papaya

According to some dermatologists, papaya can be used to tighten, brighten, and otherwise improve tired-looking skin. Rich in Vitamins, A, E, and C, papaya is also packed with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), a common ingredient in anti- aging skin formulas. While eating papaya can have many overall health benefits, if you want to use a papaya for skincare, try this:

Cut a ripe papaya into half, then remove the seeds. Add half a cup of water. Blend the papaya until it is a purée. Place the purée in a small container. Keep refrigerated. Apply it to your skin three times a week for best results.

Few other Important Tips

– A regular 7 to 8 hours of sleeping is required to bring out the inner glow.

– You must drink plenty of water for healthy, hydrated and radiant skin.Drink at least 3 to 4 liters of water in a day.

– Moisturize your skin two times in a day.You can add a few drops of sweet almond oil or olive oil to your daily moisturizer and use it.
