Blackheads are super gross. If you’ve ever had one (and you have, don’t lie), then you know how disgusting they are. When I was in high school, I had a major blackhead issue. I became obsessed with ways to rid myself of these super gross and vile prom date ruiners. But here’s the thing, blackheads aren’t just fashion accessory for crying teens. In fact, blackheads commonly affect adults. According to Women’s Health, many women suffer the consequences of blackheads due to hormonal changes throughout their lives. The American Academy of Dermatology says that blackheads are an issue for all ages, not just teens.  Blackheads in adults are super common (that’s the point).

But what are blackheads and how can we get rid of them forever? Let’s talk about blackhead remover and ways to prevent.

 Blackheads happen when pores become clogged with surplus sebum and dead cells that have died off from the skin. Wouldn’t it be great if you never had to deal with one again? Well since they seem to find their way into our day to day lives I have found some at home remedies to zap them away!

Bentonite Clay | Blackhead Remover And Cures 

Bentonite clay is a clay rich in minerals that has been used for ages to treat skin related issues. When wet, bentonite clay creates an electric atmosphere which draws out impurities and oils trapped in your pores. The clay also improves circulation and contributes to improved skin. Use 1 tablespoon of bentonite clay and enough water to form a paste. Smear the paste onto your face and let it sit for about 10-20 minutes then rinse off with warm water. There is nothing like sitting around with some relaxing mud on your face, no?

Egg Whites | Blackhead Remover And Cures 

Just when you thought eggs were only for breakfast! Egg whites can typically tighten pores, which will alleviate risks of incoming blackheads and will also fight preexisting blackheads. Egg whites are very moisturizing, unlike some blackhead remedies. Simply apply the egg whites to your skin and let dry. Once your skin is dry rinse off the egg white and your face should feel tight!


Cinnamon and Honey | Blackhead Remover And Cures 
I love cinnamon. I love it in my coffee and in cake (maybe eating cake is half my acne problem?).Cinnamon helps improve circulation, which will give your skin a healthy glow. While the honey has anti-bacterial agents that help kill bacteria that cause blackheads and acne in general. Simply mix one part cinnamon with one part honey and apply a thin layer over any blackheads. Let the mixture sit for 3-5 minutes and then rinse.

Water | Blackhead Remover And Cures 
Water is a wonderful treatment for blackheads. You can only use facemasks a few times a week in order to keep your skin from drying out. Rinsing your face with water 1-2 times a day helps remove dirt or dried skin from causing acne. Too many adults and teens drink way too much soda and coffee. Drink straight up water and your body and skin will most definitely thank you.

Sweating | Blackhead Remover And Cures 
Remember when you thought that sweating was gross? Well, as it turns out, sweating is a pretty darn cool thing to do! In fact, it can help fight the war that’s happening on your skin! Sweating can minimize blackheads. Sweat naturally flows over and softens anything that might be clogging your pores. However make sure to rinse your skin after sweating a lot, because sweat can carry stuff and then dry in your pores, which can cause acne.

Baking Soda and Water | Blackhead Remover And Cures 
Baking soda acts as an exfoliate that removes dead skin cells and makes your skin soft and smooth. It also helps to neutralize your skin pH, which will lessen the amount of oil your skin produces. Mix about 1 tablespoon with one cup of water and rub mixture all over your face. It will be runny like water but your skin should feel a bit dryer after words. Once you’ve rinsed your face put some jojoba oil or coconut oil on your skin to moisturize.

Conclusion

Acne of any sort sucks. An improved diet is the key to helping fend off any unwanted acne, blackheads. Don’t booze too much. Don’t overload on soda. Drink some water. Put some of that clay mud on your face. And maybe eggs aren’t just what’s for breakfast?
