Hey crew! This has been such a long weekend. I mean, I can really say that I’m glad to see Monday! Whaat? Crazy, right? There was so much going on this past weekend that it left my poor little face all broke out and covered with blackheads and acne! So I had to pull out my super easy and simple DIY blackhead remedy that my sister shared with me back in the day to help with these ‘not so pretty’ creatures that have popped up all around my nose and cheeks.
DIY Beauty:2 Ingredients Natural DIY Blackhead Remedy
This simple mix calls for two things. Honey (organic if possible) and baking soda. That’s it, just those two products that, if you’re like me, are in your panty/bathroom cabinet. I pretty much use honey in every mixture that I use for my hair and skin due to it’s natural antibacterial properties, wonderful antioxidants and moisturizing benefits and I always have baking soda in my house because (
I have stinky boys that live with me) it’s a great multipurpose product to use for eliminating odor and exfoliating the skin. It’s crazy how these two simple items can be used in so many home/skin & hair recipes and I just found out about it!
When using this diy blackhead remedy I usually mix 2 tablespoons baking soda with 1 tablespoon of honey and combine to make a stiff and very sticky paste that I apply to my face. Nothing fancy, just 2 everyday ingredients and 15-20 minutes of your time.
If you follow on Instagram, then you know that I applied this mixture while hanging with the hubs during Saturday movie night. Yep! I had sticky icky honey all over my face while we watch Wolf on Wall Street. It took everything in me to get my husband to stop trying to lick my face but hey, who could reset honey?
So there you have it. My treatment for fighting off these ugly blackheads using an easy & natural diy blackhead remedy that has worked for me throughout my entire girly girl years. I love that I can whip this up at a moments notice and see results immediately and plus it’s super inexpensive!
How do you deal with the nasty blackhead dilemma? Do you use a store bought product or do you use your own personal diy blackhead remedy? Share below. I would love to see what you’re using or purchased.
