blackheads smallPeople of any age can have problems with blackheads on their skin, but most often it is an issue during the teenage and adolescent years.

Also referred to as open comedones, blackheads are small yellow or black bumps that form when a clog develops in the opening of hair follicles due to a combination of excess sebum and build-up of dirt and dead skin cells.

The bumps appear dark not because of dirt but as a result of oxidization. This happens when the clogged pores are exposed to the air.

Factors like hormonal changes in the body, excessive use of cosmetic products, improper skin care, stress and genetics contribute to this problem.

Blackheads commonly occur on the face, particularly the nose. They can also appear on the chest, back, neck, arms and shoulders. If left untreated, they can spur acne breakouts.

There are many prescription medicines for the treatment of blackheads, but you can always try natural treatments. With simple ingredients easily found in most kitchens, you can treat your blackheads within a few days.

home remedies for blackheads

Here are the top 10 home remedies for blackheads.

(Out of the 10, we have covered three highly effective home remedies in this video as well.)

1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is an effective treatment for blackheads as well as acne. It helps clear the skin of impurities such as debris and dirt.

2. Cinnamon

Cinnamon can be used to remove and prevent blackheads

  • Mix one teaspoon each of cinnamon powder and lemon juice with a pinch of turmeric powder (optional). Spread it on your face, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off.
  • Alternatively, mix one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and honey to form a thick paste. Apply it on the affected area before bed and leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash your face well with normal water. For best results, follow this remedy daily for about 10 days.

3. Oatmeal

The combination of oatmeal and yogurt is great for keeping your skin free of blackheads.

  1. Mix one teaspoon honey and the juice of four tomatoes in sufficient oatmeal to make a paste.
  2. Scrub it on your skin.
  3. Wash it off after 10 minutes.
  4. Repeat regularly for clear skin.

You can also make a paste by mixing together two tablespoons of oatmeal, three tablespoons of plain yogurt, and small amounts of lemon juice and olive oil. Apply the paste to your entire face, leave for a few minutes and then rinse your face with water.

4. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice, also used in acne treatment, can help remove blackheads. The nutrients and vitamins present in lemon juice are good for all skin types.

Lemon honey home remedy for blackheads

  • Put a few drops of honey on half a lemon. For extra exfoliation, you can also add a little sugar. Gently rub the lemon on your face, especially on the blackhead prone areas. Rinse it off after 10 minutes. Repeat once or twice a week.
  • You can also mix fresh lemon juice with milk or rosewater to create a facial cleanser and use a few times a week.

5. Green Tea

Green tea can also be used to treat blackheads.

  1. Mix one teaspoon of dry green tea leaves with a little water to make a paste.
  2. Gently scrub the paste over the affected area for two to three minutes. This scrub deep cleans oily skin and helps unclog pores.
  3. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.

6. Honey

The balancing quality present in honey is good for both oily skin and blackheads. Honey hydrates as well as tightens the skin pores, giving you a clear complexion.

  2. Rinse your face with lukewarm water.

    1. Sometimes when you wash your face too much and you dry out your skin, your skin reacts by overproducing oils, make sure when you wash you also hydrate your skin to prevent from to much oil, also if you exfoliate it helps get rid of dead skin cells which can clog pores. can mix some sea salt (or brown sugar or coffee grinds) with a type of oil (I chose extra virgin olive oil but you can use jojoba or coconut or another type) and once its mixed together you rub it on your hands and face then just rinse off with warm water (NO soap) 🙂

  6. I have mature somewhat sensitive skin and needed a treatment for blackheads/whiteheads on T zone. I tried the lemon juice (freshly picked) & cinnamon mask and couldn’t leave it on for 5 seconds let alone 15 minutes!!!! I did this after steaming my face so wasn’t too surprised when it started stinging but OMG it it started burning and couldn’t get it off fast enough!! Beware!!

    1. hi Na,

      I’ve tried honey facial once a week and it seems to be best for my sensitive skin . once the honey is removed after leaving it on for 15 minutes your face feels tighter and there is a gorgeous healthy glow.

  7. If I leave honey and cinnamon over night… I’m scared I’ll have ants all over me when I wake or whatever bugs…… Won’t it make your pillow sticky as well since your face moves around with it..

    1. If you put a layer of tissue paper or something similar on top of the honey/cinnamon mixture, it won’t stick to anything and you can just peel it off in the morning 🙂

    2. U don’t need to do this. u can use 10 dhorps of rose water and 6 drops of lemon juice in face. it works for me.but u need do use pure rose water.then it will be worked. Sorry my English is not good.

  8. im few days later join your website very informative & effective i dnt know what brand organic honey so im only try baking soda recepie. take facial steam is daily or not because im effected another problem milia kindly answer me. deeply thanx

    1. I’m having a hard time trying to spread the poop around my my nose (my most problematic blackhead spot) without gagging. Would applying Vick’s under my nose first help with this??

  9. I am suffering from bumps all over the face. My skin has gotton so dark lots of spots and very sensitive. If I perspire ir itches like crazy and and looks just horrible. Think I got the breakout fr products I was given by a skin place.help

  10. I’m kira, I’ve had acne and blackheads since 13, now I’m 22. I’m going to try the honey one because I love honey!! 🙂 I’ll repost how it works

  11. Baking soda mixed with peroxide into a paste. Apply with a Q-tip to nose. Let dry and rinse. Also mix baking soda with a gentle natural cleanser and rub in circles. Only use these methods 1-2 times per week and always moisturize after.

  12. I have tried lemon juice and it did wonders for my face, i also I applied it under my armpit n gush I can lift them up with no hesitance and no ador. thank you!

  13. Hi i think is you aply glue pva non toxic cover your infected areas put paper over and leave to dry then RIP It OFFFF next time you do this boil water or wait till you washing machine is done and put your face over the steam and then do it

  14. try TOOTHPASTE friends… It also works..
    Apply it on nose, keep it for 15-20 mins…
    nd u ll easily remove it, with smoother towel..

    1. Baking soda is an awesome exfoliant as well. The salt that is in it is a good way of help dry out acne covered skin so make sure to use moisturise. I use it 2 – 3x a week but that may be a lot for other skin types so be careful maybe start out with one week

  15. Baking soda its very very effective for blackheads& pimples.
    Every morning & night I use in just few days my face change.
    And also I use argan oil everyday, I don’t use any cream.:)

  16. Thank you so much.. I was really fed up with black heads on my face.. But from last week I am using baking soda.. Really it is very effective..

  17. I have had black heads and zits since 10. I’m 14 now and I see comments saying baking soda works a lot. I’ll try that.

  18. Try the combo of 1T. Baking Soda and 1T. Honey (be sure to mix it til combined and a creamy texture). This mixture works fantastically on my daughter’s sensitive, acne prone skin. Dealing with oral and topical prescribed meds for acne….They do work, but the oral meds take a toll on the tummy. So, this is what I suggest to try (only because I am seeing results on my daughter, and I’m very pleased with the results):

    1. keep applying the baking soda and honey mixture (I’ve been using reg honey, not organic. It is helping. I’ll try organic honey later.
    2. Start taking a probiotic capsule; 1Daily….the name of the capsules are “Primadophilus” Original and is made by Nature’s Way; 90 vcaps for ages 12 & up; keep refrigerated; 45 mg (Proprietary Probiotic Blend providing 5 Billion CFU).
    3. Your child’s stomach will feel much better after taking this probiotic pill. The prescribed oral pills take so much energy out of them.
    4.Always drink plenty of water, plenty of exercise, adequate fruits, fiber and vegetables, including meats / protein.

    1. Once the b. soda and honey mixture is applied and left on for 10 minutes, you’ll want to use two fingers to gently rub your face, in circular motion, be sure to get all areas on your face (in the eyebrows and hairline, only if you feel blackhead bumps there).

      Once you have rinsed your face / body thoroughly. Apply organic Coconut oil. The Coconut oil will look solid, a white color. So when you scoop out the oil, make sure you heat it, melt it in the palm of your hands, then gently massage on your face.

      This homemade remedy is helping with my daughter’s acne prone and blackhead issue. I’m telling you as a mother…”what a relief!” I am very satisfied with the results.

  19. Baking soda is very good it works and toothpaste also works it’s the best I also tried it works first my face is full of blemish pimples and blackheads I tried this and it work and now Iam do this just use for one week it works than see before and after and for whitten your face just use fairnlovely it works for nails whitten just use the toothpaste


  20. I’m going to try the baking soda and see what happens 🙂 cause I have bad black heads on my nose and their so irritating just looking at them everyday xc

  21. I tried the honey method and there were improvement. When I tried the baking soda I mixed up a paste with sparkling water, I suppose soda water would be much the same. I thought this was also good. Early days but will try both again, but will try cinnamon next.

  22. Boil mineral water and soak a face towel into the water. Then just place the hot towel onto your face for a few minutes. After this, apply the baking soda and afterwards your face will feel super soft and glow wonderfully!!

  23. Mixed baking soda ,little peroxide,honey & ebson salt into a paste. Bubbles up and can feel it working. Wash off 5 min. For men(shaving makes the skin little more sensitive). 10-15 for women(longer if u like).use circular massaging with 2 fingers before removing with warm water. Feels tighter, cleaner & detoxified! Once a week***

  24. I havenblackheads all over my face n spreading on my body, i really do trust n hope that the baking soda do wonders for me.

  25. Not sure if anyone comes to this site any more but I use honey as a facial wash in the mornings and coconut oil afterwards as a mosturiser and it’s great stuff it give you beautiful skin at very little expense. I also use baking soda,coconut oil and honey for teeth whitening then brush as normal. Honey and coconut oil work wonders for most things including your hair they are always top of my shopping list ? hope someone finds this useful.

  26. I have white- and blackheads pretty much on the sideways H-zone… I wash my face with aloe vera facial soap and a thin layer of cleansing lotion but It’s really bad when I use them and even alot worse when I don’t…
