DIY: 4 Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads

Blackheads are caused by dead skin cells and sebum that turns black in colour because of exposure.
Why shouldn't you use products to remove blackheads? It's because lots of products have alcohol, menthol and eucalyptus, which increases oil production and this is where blackheads come from.
Here are some ways to get rid of them naturally :-

1) You Need: (This is like making your own pore strips)

    Egg White
    Thin tissue paper (Kitchen tissue is fine)
Beat an egg white and make sure you don't mix the yoke with the white. Apply the egg white on, where you have blackheads and then cover it with 2 layers of tissue. Peel it off when it dries. You will obviously know when it dries. Rinse your face with warm water and the black heads should be gone.
P.S. I haven't tried it so please tell me guys if it worked or not :)

2) You Need:
    Tomato Juice
    Cotton Balls/sheets

Squeeze some tomato juice out. Take your cotton and soak it under warm water. Place the soaked cotton on the blackheads area and hold it there for at least a minute. Repeat soaking the cotton if it gets cold. This will soften the blackheads. Apply the tomato juice on and leave for 15 mins. Rinse your face with cold water to close the pores.

3) You can exfoliate your face every 3-4 days a week to get rid of them. To find a natural exfoliator suitable for your skin type, check out my blog post HERE and make your own exfoliator.

4) You can make your own pore strips at home without spending too much money. Check this video HERE to make them.

What I do to get rid of them, is simply exfoliate my skin naturally about 3-4 times a week. But for you, it depends on your skin. DO NOT try to scrap your skin in order to remove the blackheads. This will damage your skin really bad. Please tell me if you have tried any of these tricks and it worked for you. Your opinion really matters :) Take Care.

  1. I tried the egg one and it works really well (I did it twice...) and then used the leftovers as a mask. It's really great, Thanks :D

  2. Thank you so much. I might try that one myself :)

  3. Thank you so much for the pore strip idea! I didn't have tissue paper, so I just used toilet paper & it worked great! :D

  4. Ive Tried UnFlavored Gelatine And Milk And It Works Really Good!You Guys Should Try It! ^.^

  5. i tried the 1st one but it didnt really work on me, was i supposed to do something else first?

    1. Maybe you should give it another chance. It may work for you. However if it doesn't, try the second method :)

  6. Elmers glue works great for black head strips!

    1. I wouldn't recommend using glue on face because they chemicals form glue are too harsh for skin and may cause acne and other skin issues :)

    2. Works for me but I don't have especially sensitive skin, maybe others could try a more natural glue. Anyway it's way cheaper than Biore blackhead strips.

  7. great ideas! biore strips do not work for me at all. they are way too expensive, they damaged the skin on my nose and hardly removed any blackheads. what a waste!!! ill try the egg white method for sure
