Blackheads are a kind of acne that may occur anywhere on the skin. The main causes are lack of hygiene, oily skin, smoking, harmful beauty products or a genetic predisposition. Blackheads are very annoying because they tend to occur most often in the nose area, where they are highly visible and therefore will affect your appearance. Fortunately, there are a variety of remedies that are useful against blackheads, including numerous face masks you can prepare at home.
If you want to get rid of blackheads quickly, try one of these 4 face masks presented below. All are highly effective and they cost almost nothing.
This mask can help you get rid of blackheads no matter the skin you have. Pineapple will keep your skin hydrated, will remove excess oil accumulation and will keep away those pesky blackheads. In addition, when you combine this mask with honey, it becomes a very powerful facial treatment that will leave your skin soft, radiant and clean.
– half a cup of pineapple juice
– 2 tablespoons of honey
In a small bowl, mix the pineapple juice with 2 tablespoons of honey until you get a homogeneous mixture. Before you apply the mask, wash your face with a towel and then apply the mixture on your skin. Leave it to act for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Try this treatment at least 2 times a week.
Tomato and Aloe Mask
This mask will help you get rid of blackheads, but will also moisturize your skin. In addition, it acts as a scrub, removing accumulated excess oil and dead skin cells.

Make the tomato puree into a bowl, then add the Aloe gel and mix well. Once the ingredients are combined, add a tablespoon of sea salt and stir until you get a paste. Apply this mask on your face and leave it to act for 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
Oat and Honey Mask
Oats and honey are two wonderful ingredients when it comes to skin care. They will moisturize your skin, will make it softer and will remove all the dead cells. The following recipe combines these two powerful ingredients. However, unlike the masks that we described above, we advise you to apply this mask only on the areas affected by blackheads.

– half a tsp of honey
– 1 egg
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until you get a paste and then apply the mask on the areas affected by blackheads. Leave it to act for 5 minutes and then rinse out with cold water. Try this treatment 2 or 3 times a week.
Egg and Lemon Mask
Egg whites and lemon can help you get rid of blackheads, because they cleanse your skin properly, they remove dead cells and all other impurities that lead to those annoying stains. But make sure you only apply this mask at night – direct sunlight exposure when you have this mask on can adversely affect your skin!
– 2 eggs
– 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
First, separate the egg whites from yolks and beat mix until you get a homogeneous texture. Then add the lemon juice and mix the ingredients until you have your mask ready. In order to get the best results, before applying it on the skin, is very important to wash your face thoroughly with a gel or other cleaning product. As soon as your face is clean, apply the mask and leave it to act for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Try this treatment 2 times a week. You may apply a little face lotion after you took off the mask.
