The Best Home Remedies to Get Rid of Whiteheads and Blackheads




Common and annoying, blackheads occur when your pores become clogged with excess oil created by your glands.

The difference between a black head and a white head is simply whether or not the pore is open or closed.

If the pore is open, the plug of sebum/skin cells oxidizes as it is in contact with the oxygen in the air, which turns it black. Blackheads are not caused by dirt.

Whiteheads on the other hand are small, hard, white or yellowish bumps – can be attributed to many factors; some to do with the products we use, others connected to genetics and skin characteristics.

Scrubbing your face obsessively is not a good way to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads.

It will only going to make it worse as you’ll just end up drying out your skin, which will cause more oil to be created to make up for everything you stripped away.

Luckily, there are several things you can do to eliminate them and improve your skin’s look.

1. Facial steaming

Boil some water and pour it into a large bowl. You can add a few drops of essential oils. Then, put a large towel over your head and place your face over the bowl for 5 to 10 minutes to let the steam do its work. If you see that the whiteheads and blackheads have softened after the treatment, you can gently push them out. Repeat this at least once a week.

2. Oatmeal scrub

Mix equal parts of raw honey and oatmeal. Apply it on your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Before removing, massage your face gently for a few minutes. Rinse the scrub off using lukewarm water.

3. Baking soda

Baking soda can be combined with water to create a thick paste. Mix one part water with three parts baking soda to create a baking soda paste. Leave the mask on your face until it dries and then wash it off. This treatment can be very useful after facial steaming.

4. Apple cider vinegar (ACV)

This, too, is a good addition to facial steaming. After the steam, apply some ACV on your face and let it dry. Don’t rinse it off.

5. Egg and honey facial mask

Mix 1 tablespoon of organic yogurt, 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 1 egg white. Apply the mixture and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
