Blackheads are just pimples that don’t have any skin to cover them. Because there’s no skin, and they’re exposed to the air, the top layer of gunk in your pores oxidizes and turns that darkish black color.

- 1 tsp baking soda
- enough water to make a paste
- organic apple cider vinegar (just a little)
Mix the baking soda and water to form a thick paste. Simply splash your face a few times with warm water to open up your skin pores. You can also wet a wash cloth with very hot water and drape it over your face until it cools down. This helps open up your pores to loosen up the dirt and impurities.
Apply the baking soda paste to your face, concentrating on the blackhead areas (usually the T-zone). Leave 1 minutes to act and then gently massage the paste into your skin to exfoliate and loosen up dead skin, blackheads, and any other dirt lurking underneath the surface.
Leave it for another minute and rinse off the paste with warm water.
Make final splash with cold water to help restrict the skin pores, preventing more dirt from entering.
To help bring your skin back to its natural pH, use a little diluted apple cider vinegar as a toner afterwards. I do equal parts vinegar to water.[/expand]
