Blackheads are stubborn dilemmas that every woman faces. And once you see one, you see them all. A DIY face mask that can remove them all at once is just what we all need. Baking soda and honey are two ingredients most people carry in their kitchens at all times, and they are much easier to find than essential oils and rare ingredients like rose water. Baking soda does wonders for your skin by exfoliating and cleansing, while honey hydrates your skin and provides antioxidants for anti-aging. The two ingredients together will work to remove blackheads in this easy, 2-ingredient face mask.

Here’s how to make the DIY Blackhead Remedy.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp honey

Directions

  1. Mix together the baking soda and honey in a bowl.
  2. Stir until the mixture becomes a thick paste.
  3. Apply the mask to your entire face or to just the areas where you want to remove blackheads.
  4. Leave on your face for 15-20 minutes and then wash clean.
