#2 Baking Soda & Water
A little baking soda goes a long way for blackheads, but don’t overdo it, as it can seriously dry out your skin thanks to its saltiness. While pH may or may not have a role to play in blackheads, the biggest reason baking soda helps is because of it’s small, fine, granules that can work as a natural and inexpensive way to occasionally exfoliate and remove anything clogging your pores (and therefore causing blackheads.)
#1 Apple Cider Vinegar & Mint Toner
Make your own toner by mixing together ACV and crushed mint leaves. The apple cider vinegar can help break down the stuff causing the blackhead, while the mint creates a cooling “tightening” sensation on your skin.
You will need: 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, three tablespoons of finely chopped/crushed fresh mint leaves, 8 ounces of water, Cotton balls.
