Those black and white spiky particles clinging on your nose and cheeks not only make you look nasty but also steal your confidence. They might not be visible indoors but when you step out, they’re as clear as the Lake Baikal in Russia. As clear as water, in short. You might have tried sticking a wax strip on them or even tried rubbing them out from your hands or a face brush but I’m sure you might have failed at every effort. Blackheads are a form of acne that can be treated very easily. In fact, they are so easy to treat that you can kiss them goodbye with homemade solutions. Affordable. Effective and Easy. What more do you ask for? You don’t have to bother with time, either.

- With toothbrush and toothpaste
Just the way you brush your teeth, squeeze some toothpaste on your toothbrush and gently scrub the affected area. Don’t go near your eyes as it will cause irritation. After, say five minutes of gentle scrubbing, rinse thoroughly with warm water. Repeat this procedure for a few days till the results are visible.
- Sugar and lemon treatment
Take a tsp of sugar and squeeze some lemon drops on them. Apply this thick mixture on your nose and face and leave them for a good five-seven minutes. Wash off thoroughly. The sugar balances the acid in lemon, while the lemon juice lessens the roughness in sugar.
Baking soda has bleaching properties which makes the skin glow. It’s THE BEST cleansing agent found on earth. (That’s what I think) Make a thick paste by mixing baking soda with a few drops of water. Scrub gently in the affected area. Rinse with warm water.
