DIY: Natural Blackhead Removal

Blackheads are a very common skin condition where oil becomes trapped in the open pores of the skin and clogs them up. It’s so common, in fact, that most people have had blackheads and will continue to get them anytime that oil clogs their skin’s pores. They can be especially frustrating because they appear as noticeable black spots on the skin, which is caused by the oil blockage in the pore becoming oxygenated and turning black. In short: if you have skin, pores and oil, and you are in any type of atmosphere where dust, dirt and bacteria can come into contact with your skin, you will experience blackheads here and there. 
1. Baking Soda & Water
Haha..nope, baking soda is not just for baking. Apparently, it’s good to “extract” blackheads without irritating the skin or enlarging the pores. By mixing equal amounts of baking soda and water, make a solution and rub it for few minutes. Now wash off with luke warm water and some of your blackheads would be removed.
2. Oatmeal Mask
Okay, you might think it’s weird but it’s good! All you to do is to mix oatmeal powder with water and apply this natural mask on your blackhead prone area. This is a very effective remedy for blackheads and checks future out break as well. I've made a blogpost about a oatmeal mask before (here)
The Results?
The first method using baking soda is more effective in removing blackheads, almost 90% are gone. The oatmeal method on the other hand, is good in reducing your pores size. Maybe you can try it out and see the results yourself.
