How To Naturally Treat Blackheads

There’s no denying that blackheads are one skin concern that all women face, regardless of their age and skin condition. In case you’re not familiar, they are those pesky little bumps on the skin that are almost impossible to remove without scarring, or even tearing, the skin with harmful microbeads.

Treat your blackheads at home with these 6 different options, which will carefully cleanse the skin and leave your face feeling fresh and clean.

Face mask

Whip-up a natural face mask with a bunch of ingredients from the fridge and pantry. All you need is one egg white, honey and lemon. Mix in a small boil, then apply directly over the skin. Let it set for a few minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.


Who knew that toothpaste could be a good remedy for blackheads? Apply a small amount of toothpaste over an aggressive blackhead to reduce swelling and discomfort.

Salt water

Wash your face at least once a day with lukewarm salty water. This will help to remove any impurities from the skin and will keep bacteria away from any open pores. Make sure to follow up with a toner for best results, followed by a moisturiser.


Fenugreek leaves is another great way to remove those pesky blackheads away from hard-to-reach areas such as the nose and chin. Apply them over dry skin, then rinse after 10 minutes with lukewarm water.

Lemon juice

Any acidic juice is great for shrinking enlarged pores since it acts as a natural toning agent. Use it on your nose, forehead, or chin to detoxify the area before bed.

Aloe vera

Apply some fresh aloe vera over the blackheads to cleanse the area without adding any additional impurities into your pores. It essentially works the same way as lemon juice and will help to prevent any infection from an open blackhead.
