Granny's Home Remedies - Getting Rid of Blackheads

Saturday, July 25, 2009

Many people have reverted back to the age old wisdoms of their ancestors with natural home remedies to soothe every kind of ache, pain, and beauty issue. I'm part of that growing number.
My source of wisdom is my Granny. Over the years, she has managed to come up with a home remedy for just about every problem I've ever mentioned. 
In fact, the words are barely out of my mouth before she's instructed me on how to resolve it and I'm going to share one of them with you.
 
If you're like me, you've used creams, cleansing pads, and even those stick-ons to rid yourself of blackheads! Even high-end dermatologists don't seem to have a long term solution on how to get rid of them. However, as always, Granny did. And as always, she explained it as though this was the easiest thing in the world to fix. Here's what she said to do:
 
1) Mix ...yogurt with baking soda until it bubbles a little
2) Wash your face and neck with soap and warm water (this opens the pores) and pat dry
3) Take the paste and spread it all over affected areas
4) Leave it on for about twenty minutes
5) Rinse it off and wash your face with cold water (this closes the pores)
6) Repeat this every few days for healthier and clearer skin
 
It's not a miracle solution, but over time it really works and every time I've used this home remedy, it's soothed my skin and made it feel healthy and calm.
 
What natural home remedies do you use for your skin?

This is an interesting remedy for blackheads. I will try it as soon as I get my hands on some baking soda and yogurt. What kind of yogurt is best to use in this case? Also, can I use baking powder instead of baking soda? Thanks and looking forward to your comment. ~Annie~

I have pretty oily skin, but I've found that if you whip up an egg WHITE, seperate the egg, and just whip up (lightly whipped) the egg white, apply some of the whip to the face and let it dry. The wash the face with cool water, and pat dry. It's not a cure, but I've found that it helps. You can see videos of how to do this on youtube as well, but this is something I've done for years.

I just tried this, and I'm not sure if I did it right or not, but it made my skin red and irradiated. I'm not pleased with the results right now, but who knows?!
