  • Some Remedies include

    1. Steam - take a washcloth or a towel and wet it with very hot water. Use that to warm up the area where the blackhead(s) are. Doing this will open up your pores, making it easier to remove the blackhead. Be gentle, use a blackhead removing tool if possible, and if not, wash your hands really well before and after you 'pop' the blackhead.

    2. Vinegar with Corn Flour - make a thick paste of vinegar with corn flour; apply it to the affected area for some time till it dries out. As you remove it while very gentle rubbing, it will remove blackheads along with dirt and oil.

    3. Coconut water - make a granulated paste of coconut water with sugar and use like a scrub over infected area. This helps to remove the active lesions and clear skin.

    4. Simply Wet Skin - after washing your face do not wipe off your nose and rub it with your finger tips. This will help in removing blackheads.

    Masks For Blackhead Skin

    1. Corn Flour Mask - prepare a mixture of corn flour with egg white and apply on face. Let it dry completely for 1/2 hour. Dip your hands in warm water and massage your face and wash off. This when repeated regularly gives you a smooth skin.

    2. Clay Mask - if you use one regularly, it helps pull out trapped oil and dead skin. To make your own mask, take:

    1 tablespoon Fullers earth

    1 Egg yolk

    1/4 mashed Avocado

    Some Witch hazel

    Mix all ingredients well and then apply on the face. Leave it till it dry. It is best for oily skin. Fuller's earth dries excess sebum while egg yolk and avocado replenish lost moisture, while witch hazel tones the skin.

    3. Orange Peel Mask - another cheap and easily available home remedy. You can easily get dried orange peels or orange peel powder from market or alternatively you may dry some at home. Grind them to make fine powder. Mix about 2 tablespoons of this powder with some yoghurt to make a thick paste. Apply all over the face, while gently rubbing in circular motions. Wash off with cold water. This is an excellent way to extract oil and dirt from clogged pores and keep the skin clean and healthy.

  • It is possible to remove blackheads, and what ever you do - don't pick at them. You can cause scarring, inflammation and aggravate the problem. They are a non inflammatory acne but, with proper skin care you can be rid of those unwanted blackheads for good.
