Natural Remedies for Eliminating Blackheads
Blackheads aren’t caused by dirt. These annoying skin problems are caused from clogged pores. An excess of the oil sebum oxidizes with the oxygen in the air and turns it black. And while scrubbing your face won’t help get rid of blackheads, there are some natural remedies that will.

Bentonite Clay Mask
Bentonite clay is a mineral rich substance that has molecules with an electrical charge. It does a wonderful job of drawing out impurities locked in the pores. It draws out the blackhead, helps with circulation and enhances skin tone. Just mix a tablespoon of bentonite clay with some water to form a thin paste. Using your fingertips, gently spread the mask on your face and let it stay on for about 25 minutes. This will give it enough time to work its magic. Rinse with lukewarm water and then apply a moisturizer.
Milk and Honey Pore Strips
While the lactic acid in milk keeps the skin supple, honey has antibacterial properties. But when mixed, these key ingredients acts as an adhesive to draw out blackheads. All you need is a clean strip of cotton, one tablespoon of organic raw honey and one teaspoon of milk. Mix the honey and milk together and heat it for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Apply the mixture over the blackheads and pat a strip of cotton onto it. Wait at least 15 minutes for the mixture to dry and then peel the strip away. Rinse with cold water and apply some moisturizer
Honey and Cinnamon Strips
Cinnamon and honey also work as an adhesive when mixed together. Plus, your skin gets a smooth, healthy glow. Mix one tablespoon of organic raw honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Apply a thin layer over the blackheads and cover with a strip of clean cotton. Let it stay on for at least five minutes, remove the strip, rinse and moisturize.
