Looking for cheap home remedies for blackheads? Then these blackhead remedies are right up your alley! You can find most of these at your local grocery store, or even in your cabinet or fridge!

Home remedies for blackheads often work just as well - or better than - blackhead remedies from your dermatologist. Here's the thing: Dermatologists are in the business for the big money skin care makes them. They don't think twice about prescribing a $100/month treatment that may or may not work for your blackheads. What they won't tell you is that many natural ingredients have the same impact - and cost a lot less besides.

So here's a few ideas to start you off right. These home remedies for blackheads can usually be found in your refrigerator or cabinet. If not, make a trip to your local grocery store and pick up something good to eat at the same time!

1. Lemon juice: Lemon juice is used for a lot of things. From bleaching hair to lightening freckles, the acid from the lemon juice tends to have a profound effect for beauty. The same thing goes for its use as a blackhead remedy. Squeeze some lemon juice onto a cotton ball, then smear it on your blackheads. To amplify the effect, mix it with a little honey, then wash it off after 15 minutes.

2. Organic honey: Pick yourself up a bottle of organic honey in the organic/natural section of your local grocery store or organic goods market. Smear some on your blackheads, let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse it off.

3. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil removes a lot of "black" skin problems, like black warts and blackheads. Dab a little on your blackheads and let it dry. No need to wash it off. This remedy, which is one of the most effective of the home remedies for blackheads, will work the clogged sebum out of your pore, eliminating the blackish look of the holes on your skin.

4. Tomato pulp: Acidic stuff really works quite well as a blackhead remedy. Tomato juice is no exception. Squish some tomato pulp onto your blackheads, then rinse it off after several minutes. Always use warm water and a soft, clean washcloth when washing off any blackhead remedies.

5. Witch hazel: Witch hazel has been known to calm a lot of skin problems, especially those owing to irritation. Witch hazel dries on it own, so it doesn't act like a blackhead removal mask as the previous home remedies for blackheads do. To apply, douse a cotton ball or cotton pad in witch hazel liquid. Dab it all around your blackheads, then pitch the cotton ball. This will help dry out those pores and improve the look of the skin.

When you're finished with one of these treatments, you might consider using a blackhead removal tool to extract the comedones. This is helpful for pores that don't respond as you'd like them to after the mask. Sometimes the blackhead is just stuck and needs a little help from you to break free. Just go at the skin with a light touch, or you could get a scar! by Harley Molina
