If you knew me, you’d know I am obsessed with all-natural beauty products and skin care remedies. If you knew me, you’d also know that I am fighting a losing battle against an army of blackheads every day. I am constantly scouring beauty stores and websites for natural, gentle, effective blackhead remedies and I don’t know how I didn’t think of this amazingly simple one. Oh, and it really works!
I found this little DIY blackhead remedy one day while mindlessly scrolling through the Hair + Beauty category of Pinterest and it is easy as can be. All you need is a lemon and some honey. I’m sure that natural and organic versions of these are ideal, but I bought the normal sort in a pinch which suited me just fine.
First, you just cut the lemon in half; set aside the other half for another treatment later in the week! Put three or four drops of honey on the lemon and then just put that honey-ed lemon half directly on your face and start scrubbing, focusing on the areas that have the most blackheads. I recommend avoiding the hairline, unlike myself on the first try which left me finding dried honey around my temples the next day. Leave the mixture on your skin for five minutes and rinse!
After rinsing, I saw immediate improvement of my blackheads and my skin looked super bright! Added bonus: The lemon works great to lighten any dark spots and the honey moisturizes. Oh, and if you accidentally get it in your mouth it tastes kind of good.
Lovelies, what are some of your blackhead solutions?
