There are lots of natural and low-chemical blackhead treatments you can try.
Apple cider vinegar washes are popular and you can even drink a tablespoon each day to enjoy lots more natural health benefits. The acidic vinegar breaks down oils and balances pH levels in your skin. Vinegar has long been used as a disinfectant and you can dilute it in water to clean your face naturally.
You can avoid the harsh and chemical-laden scrubs and face masks from the shops and make your own blackhead treatment. A super-simple and cheap scrub is made up of baking soda and water. You’ve probably already got baking soda in your kitchen
Egg whites also make a great face mask. You can apply it straight to the face and let it dry, or you can dip cotton or tissue into the egg white and make your own strips to put on your nose or face. When you peel it off you can see the excess oil.
Drinking lots of water, eating well, getting a good night’s sleep and lowering stress all help with acne and blackhead breakouts too. Most of us don’t get enough water or enough sleep and it can cause havoc with our skin.
Prevention is better than cure when it comes to blackhead treatment but sometimes you just need to squeeze those blackheads. Don’t just use your fingers though. That can introduce dirt and bacteria into the pore that can make the blackhead worse or turn it into a whitehead. Plus, squeezing with fingers causes redness, swelling and irritation that can last for hours and draw even more attention to the spot. Instead, use a comedone extractor for a hygienic and easy way to squeeze your blackheads.
