Blackheads Be Gone! Natural Blackhead Removal Recipes

I HATE blackheads. With a burning passion. I get them on my nose all the time. They just never budge, and I always get the urge to pick and prod at my skin because of it. As you could expect, that would only ever make things worse.

So, I would look up remedy after remedy to try to get them to go away. I've accumulated loads of experienced over time, and I have noted which ones have worked best for me so far.

However, going into this, you'll have to keep in mind that everyone's skin is different. What may work for might not work for you, and that's okay. But, I can promise you that giving these recipes a try will be worth it with enough time and patience.

Another thing to consider is that it will save you much more money compared to going out and buying loads of overpriced skin care products.

Three Different Ways to Remove Blackheads

Here are some of the best blackhead remedies that have worked for me.

1. Sugar Scrub

Exfoliation is very beneficial to the skin. It can help get rid of dead skin, dirt, oil, and product buildup in your pores that could potentially form blackheads. So not only can exfoliating cure blackheads, but it can prevent them as well. Sugar scrubs are great for exfoliating your body, your face, and your lips. Plus, it usually tastes great if you accidentally get it into your mouth.

How to Prepare:

  • Add one tablespoon of granulated or brown sugar (depending on your preferance) to a clean, dry bowl.
  • If you have oily skin, add a tablespoon of honey to your sugar.
  • If you have dry skin, add a tablespoon of jojoba oil to your sugar.
  • Mix until it has formed a thick mixture that you can pick up with a spoon without it immediately deforming.

How to Use:

  • Splash face with warm water.
  • Apply scrub to your face.
  • Slowly and evenly massage your face using circular motions.
  • Rinse off with warm water to remove, then rinse again with cold water.
  • Pat face dry with a gentle towel and apply moisturizer.

 

2. Oil Cleansing

Upon first hearing this, it may sound a bit counterproductive to wash your face with oil to get rid of blackheads. However, this is actually an affective method of clearing the skin, even for those with oily skin. This works by usuing noncomedogenic oils. Noncomedogenic oils are oils that won't clog your pores. Because it won't clog your pores, it is actually helpful to people with oily skin as well Applying this to the skin will melt away any oils that are currently clogging your pores.

How to Prepare:

  • No preparation is really required, just have some argan or jojoba oil with you.

How to Use:

  • Use 1-2 teaspons of oil to put on to your face.
  • Massage face gently with your hands in circular motions for a couple minutes.
  • Take a gentle cloth (microfiber is recommended), dampen it with warm water.
  • Use cloth to lightly wipe away the oil without using excess pressure.
  • Pat your face with a dry towel.
  • Apply moisturizer.

3. Egg White & Honey Mask

Honey is widely used in skin care products, as it is known to have many benefits to the skin. Honey contains antibacterial elements that ward off the unwanted bacteria that causes acne. It also quickens the healing process of skin cells and moisturizes the skin, making it soft and smooth.

Egg whites, however, may sound a little more out-of-the-ordinary. But we're here to tell you that they are actually pretty helpful. Egg whites help tighten and firm the skin. They are known to aid in shrinking your pores and are helpful to those who struggle with oily skin, like myself.

How to Prepare:

  • Separate your egg whites from your yolks and place the egg whites into a clean, dry bowl. (You can store the yolks into a sealed container for later usage.)
  • Whisk your egg whites until bubbles form, looking frothy.
  • Add in one tablespoon of honey and mix thoroughly.

How to Use:

  • Taking a clean brush or mask applicator, dip your tool into the mixture.
  • Apply mask evenly on affected areas with blackheads.
  • Let mask sit for 15-20 minutes.
  • Rinse off the mask with warm water.
  • Remove any excess with a damp towel.

Things to Remember

Keep in mind that blackheads are completely normal to have, so it's okay if you get them from time to time. There is no need to be ashamed of your skin, but it is important to take care of it. Remember that this may not work for you like it does for other people, and that is normal too. Learning about your skin and seeing what does and doesn't work for you is essential to figuring out how you can achieve what is best for your skin. If this doesn't work for you, then you're just one step closer to finding out what does.
