1. Lemon + honey + sugar
Cut a lemon in half and pour enough honey to cover the cut surface of the lemon. Then sprinkle the lemon half with two pinches of sugar (it is better to use cane sugar), and gently massage the problem areas with this natural ’sponge’ in a circular motion.
Repeat the procedure no more than once a week.
2. Vaseline + plastic wrap
The best time to use this trick is right after the shower because the heat from the water will have opened your pores. Begin by applying Vaseline to the affected area that needs to be treated. Once you have finished with it, place the plastic wrap over the Vaseline. With the wrap still in place, apply a hot towel and let it sit until it cools back down to room temperature. Then use a tissue to remove any excess Vaseline from your face, and gently squeeze the skin where the blackheads are clogging your pores to remove them. The dirt should be pushed out very easily. Finally, wipe a cotton pad soaked in lotion over your skin.
Do this procedure once or twice a month.
3. Sugar + honey + olive oil + vanilla extract
Combine 1/4 cup of white sugar with 1/4 cup of brown sugar in a bowl and mix. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and stir well. Then mix in 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir all the ingredients well until smooth, and use this mixture to scrub any problem areas. Rinse off with warm water.
Use this remedy once a week. Store in an airtight jar at room temperature.
4. Coconut oil + coffee grounds
Combine 1/2 cup of coconut oil (put it into the microwave to warm up slightly first) with 1/2 cup of fresh coffee grounds. Use some of the mixture immediately, and gently massage your face with circular motions. After scrubbing, leave the mixture on your face for 5 minutes, then use cold water to wash it off thoroughly. Repeat the procedure once a week.
Divide the remaining mixture into muffin tins or ice cube trays and put into a freezer.
