Best homemade natural scrubs to remove blackheads & whiteheads

Blackheads are stubborn. And I know that you will agree with me on this. Even if you squeeze them out, these bad boys refuse to leave and somehow manage to reappear. The only way to get rid of them is by regular exfoliation. While there is no dearth of blackhead scrubs and exfoliators in the market, how do you know which one can keep them away for good? Let me help you with that. Here’s a low-down on the scrubs and products that are pretty effective in keeping blackheads from popping up often. So, here is a list of easy homemade scrubs that you can use to get rid of these irritating black and white spots from your face.

Lemon, Yogurt and Salt face scrub to combat whiteheads and blackheads:

Asides from the already known fact that lemon is a natural whitening agent lemon can also help tighten skin pores and remove skin impurities. Lemon juice combined with yogurt works amazing well in removing blackheads. Yoghurt also doubles as a skin moisturizer while salt can be used to exfoliate dead skin cells.

For this natural face scrub that can help you get rid of whiteheads and blackheads, you will need 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and yoghurt and ½ tablespoon of salt.

Mix all the ingredients well and apply the pack on affected areas, scrub gently and let the solution sit for 10-15 minutes before washing.


Oatmeal, Turmeric and Lemon juice pack for treating whiteheads and blackheads:

Oatmeal is a great skin exfoliator and is also a natural absorbent which when used regularly can help remove excess oil from the face and thus prevent blackheads breakout.

Take 2 tablespoons of oatmeal and lemon juice with a ¼ teaspoon of turmeric. Blend or ground the oatmeal well and then mix with the other two ingredients. Scrub your face with the mask and then leave on for about 5-10 minutes to dry before rinsing off with water.

Tooth paste and salt scrub for removing black and whiteheads:

This is a very simple and very effective home treatment for removing blackheads and whiteheads quickly. However, always keep in mind that it is a strictly spot based treatment, and you should never use it on your whole face or on a wider area of the face.

Take 1/2 spoon of a gel based tooth paste. The white, thick ones will not do in this case. Now add 1/2 spoon of salt to it and mix the two well. Apply this mixture onto the affected skin in a slow circular motion, preferably with the help of a soft toothbrush.

Once you are done, let it set for 10 minutes and then again scrub lightly with the toothbrush before removing with a wet cotton ball and washing off with water. Follow with a moisturizer. You can see instant results. Do not repeat this treatment more than thrice in a month.

Masoor dal and milk face scrub for treating blackheads and whiteheads:

Do you have a sensitive skin and you can only opt for a milder treatment to cure the black and whiteheads from your face? Then try out this one. This scrub cum pack with red lentils and milk will clear off the blackheads and whiteheads and will also nourish your skin, giving you a clearer complexion.

Soak 3 spoons of red lentils in raw milk overnight. In the morning grind the whole mixture to make a thick, granular paste. Use this paste for scrubbing your face and then let it set into a mask for 15 minutes. Scrub again with wet hands and then wash off with water.
