Homemade Blackhead Remover

Best Acne Treatments




Homemade blackhead remover are convenient, yet fairly unusual. The ingredients used in some of them may seem a bit wrong in some cases, but they really do work, and can have very long lasting results.


Develop Your Own Acne Blackhead Remover Scrub


You can develop your very own facial scrub, using toothpaste, water, fenugreek leaves and mint leaves. This should all be mixed together and applied to the face two or three times a day for up to ten minutes at a time, until the infection or inflammation disappears completely.


This should be washed off the face as soon as the ten minutes are up, as spending too much time with the ’scrub’ on your face can cause mild irritation. You do not have to use all of the ingredients, all of the time. If the blackheads become red or look as if they are going to develop further into whiteheads or pustules, you can use just toothpaste alone. This will actively reduce the reddening of the skin.


Aloe Vera for Acne blackhead remover


An alternative homemade blackhead remover consists of Aloe Vera oil, cucumber and mint. You do not need water for this treatment as there is so much contained in the cucumber. It should be mashed up using a pestle and mortar into a fine paste, and then applied to the affected area like a face masque. The masque should be left for between five and ten minutes and removed using clean, tepid, running water.


The same mixture should never be used more than once, as you can exacerbate the problem. It is recommended that one uses this homemade remedy in conjunction with a mild facial cleanser, and do not scrub the face too hard because you are likely to damage the skin, making it even more difficult to remove any blackheads.


All natural is the best


It is not certain what the best homemade blackhead removers are. It is, however, known that the best are those made using natural and organic ingredients. There are lots of different facial steaming teas available as well as an extensive recipe list of homemade remedies.


The more natural the treatment, the better, as you know that you will not be covering your face in potentially harmful chemicals that may also dry out your skin. Aloe Vera seems to be the most frequently used ingredient, so look out for this in any product or recipe you wish to use. You can use any good search engine to find more information on what kind of blackhead removers are available to ’do-it-yourself’ or you can consult your local pharmacist.
