10 Simple Remedies to Get Rid of Blackheads

People are much worried about the blackheads because they make a beautiful face look dull.

Everyone always finds a way to clear out blackheads from their faces. They are formed because of the sebum and skin cells that react with oxygen and form dark dirt that fills the pores.

There are several ways to remove blackheads. We can have very good natural agents that go handy in removing the blackheads.  Here are a few methods that you help you with removing the blackheads.

1. Clay

Skin related issues can be treated by bentonite clay that has rich mineral content and has great healing property. It has been used from ancient times to treat skin.

It creates an electric charge when it gets wet that removes oil and other dirt from the pores. The skin absorbs the minerals from the clay while it simultaneously removes the blackheads.

It regulates the blood circulation too. You can mix the clay wither with water or apple cider vinegar but I would suggest you go with the former.

Things needed

  1. Bentonite clay –         1 tbsp
  2. Water or apple cider vinegar


  1. Mix the clay with water or the apple cider vinegar so that it forms a thick paste.
  2. Apply a thin layer of this clay paste over your face.
  3. Allow it to dry for at least 25 minutes.
  4. Remove this using lukewarm water and apply a moisturizer.
