Nobody likes blackheads. Unfortunately, blackheads are common, especially if you have oily skin. Of course, there are a number of products available to help combat blackheads – you’ve probably heard of them, maybe you have tried them and maybe you have even had success with them. If you are looking for a budget-friendly way to help combat blackheads, or if you simply enjoy DIY home remedies, try beating blackheads with baking soda!
Mix 2.5 tbsp of baking soda with 2-2.5 tbsp water. The two should form a paste. If your mixture is slightly runny, that is okay. However, if you wish to thicken it, simply add more baking soda.
Apply the mixture to the areas of your face where blackheads are present and gently massage using your fingers for about two to three minutes. Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry.
Let’s get straight to today’s DIY face mask:
- Ripe banana (1)
- Lemon juice (1 tbsp)
- Honey (1 tbsp)
- Dash of sea salt (optional)
Mash the banana in a bowl, then add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of honey. Mix well.
Apply the mixture to your face and allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
Sorry for such a quick post. I promise I’ll make it up to you in future blog posts. Does anyone have any suggestions for future blog posts? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
If you’re looking for a way to exfoliate your skin while absorbing excess oils, look no further than your kitchen, or at the very least, the closest grocery store.
This mask calls for two ingredients – lemon juice and plain instant oatmeal.
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of instant oatmeal with just enough lemon juice to form a paste. Using your fingers, apply the mixture to your face, massaging lightly to exfoliate. Once you have applied the oatmeal face mask, sit back and allow it to dry completely, then rinse well with warm water.
The first time I tried this mask I applied a very thick layer to my face and it took forever to dry – a thin layer is all you need.
I am always looking for new DIY face masks to try. If you have any suggestions please leave it as a comment or send me an e-mail. If you have a tutorial on your blog that you would like me to use the post will include a link to your blog.
