You dont have to read my whole acne story, just to hear my question head to the 2nd paragraph.
I am 14 and I have bad blackheads around my nose and some are starting in between my eyebrows and the like. I first started getting pimples when I was beginning the 8th grade, almost a year ago. Back then, I was taking showers in the morning. My facial routine consisted of washing my face in the shower. As soon as I stepped out, hair dripping wet, I smeared on gobs of foundation on my forehead and nose. I thought that was helping it. All it did was clog up my pores and made my forehead look flaky. In March, I began to realize how bad my pimples were and how itchy my face was becoming, not t mention scarred, by acne. Ever since then I have followed a natural routine of cleansing my face twice a day with a natural soap, followed by a tea tree oil cleanser. I am taking zinc and copper capsules which are seriously helping my pimples. Also I am taking milk thistle capsules to balance out my hormones, and mom says I can take Vitex in a few months to also help. But even though I have not very bad pimples anymore, whatever I do has not helped my blackheads at all. Sometimes when I have a really huge one I can pick off the black part, then it bleeds and scars.
I have searched and searched, but what I really want is something easy like buttermilk, honey, cinnamon, baking soda, lemons, etc. (not all those ingredients) to have an easy cure for blackheads using home remedies. I have heard of honey with cinnamon to put on a face mask overnight, and buttermilk and nutmeg, but I have no nutmeg and won’t buy any. Please tell me an easy home remedy, something with the ingredients listed above or very similar to those, that I can put directly on my blackheads and then wash off in about 15-20 minutes. I really really appreciate this!! 🙂
okay if you wash your face with hot or warm water please don’t because that can open up your pores and it will make you break out . i used to do that alot when i was younger too and now that i realized that i stopped and i don’t break out as i used to. i use facial mask (clay) and it helps alot , if you want to give it a try you can get it at Walgreen’s or stores like tj maxx and Marshall’s . for homemade remedy , heres the things you gonna need and directions too :
toothpaste (you just gonna need enough to cover your face )
3 tb of salt
mix them in a bowl until its thick . before you apply it to your face you want to wash your face with warm water so that your pores are opened ,then keep it on ur face for 5 minutes then wash your face with cold water .
you can do this 2-4 times a week.
now i really hope you try this and that it works for you 🙂
good luck .
