2. Baking soda

Baking soda is a widely used product, known for many of its wonderful benefits in our everyday lives. As a blackhead treatment, baking soda also proves its effectiveness. It acts as an exfoliant to your face and also helps brighten your skin.

Baking soda is a common kitchen item.

It's very simple. Firstly, mix baking soda and a fair amount of water to form a paste. Then just simply apply the mixture to the affected area. You can make gentle scrubbing motions to remove dead skins and blackheads. Later, rinse it away with lukewarm water. Here is an effective and quick blackhead removing treatment you should apply.

You can freely add other liquids to the mixture, for example, honey or apple ciders.

3. Vinegar and cornstarch

Another effective DIY mixture for the blackhead treatment is vinegar and cornstarch. Firstly, pour cornstarch into a bowl then slowly add vinegar to adjust the right amount, then stir well until it forms a paste. Next, apply the mixture onto your skin until it sets to a plaster-like texture then wash it off with water.

Cornstarch helps remove oil; meanwhile, vinegar reverses oxidation and in turn 'bleaches' the blackheads.

Vinegar and cornstarch are another great duos to fight blackheads.

4. Lemon juice and sugar

This might sound like the ingredient to make a refreshing cup of lemon juice for a hot summer day. But they are for a simple recipe of facial scrubs for blackhead treatment. The mixture would help cleans the pores and smoothen your skin.

Being a high source of vitamin C, lemon juice helps clear up your skin.

First of all, squeeze the lemons for fresh lemon juice, then add a moderate amount of white sugar. Later, stir until you have a paste-like mixture. And do it like any other homemade mixture: apply it onto your skin, especially in nose and chin area. Gently rub and wash it off with clean water. And we've done.

A little reminder, since lemon is highly acidic, never apply lemon juice straight to your skin. You can dilute it with water or by adding other substances.

5. Turmeric powder and honey

Turmeric's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and honey being soothing on the skin, together they make a great mixture for blackhead treatment at home.  It is also very easy to make a homemade paste for face masks from these two ingredients. Just mix them in a fair amount, then carefully apply the amber mixture onto your skin. Wait for about 20 minutes, let it completely dry before washing it off.

A little catch is that turmeric can stain your face. That's a small heads-up for you so that you don't walk out unknowingly with a yellow-stained skin.

Honey and turmeric go pretty well together.

Some small tips

The remaining mixture can be stored in sealed jars and refrigerated for later use. Also, before applying the homemade mixture onto your skin, you can put a warm towel over your face to open the pores and help your skin absorb the good nutrients much better.

And after washing it off, you can dab your face with a cold towel to close the pores. For best effects, you should repeat those skincare routines at home regularly, up to 3 to 4 times per week.
