4. Baking Soda
The granules of baking soda work great as a scrub to remove anything that clogs the pores. But don’t overdo it. Since baking soda contains high PH, it can dry your skin.
Combine baking soda and water to create a thick, spreadable paste
Massage the paste in a circular motion on your skin
Rinse it thoroughly with slightly cold water
Pat dry and apply moisturizer
5. Lemon Juice
This yellow citrus is rich in Vitamin C and has components that are good for the skin. Lemon juice is a natural astringent. It can shrink the pores fast and rejuvenates skin. With that being said, it can help eliminate whiteheads and blackheads. But lemon juice makes skin sensitive to the sun so make sure to load up some sunscreen in the summer or avoid direct sunlight.
Squeeze a lemon and keep it in a small bottle. It can be refrigerated up to a week
Wet a cotton ball with the juice and apply it on affected areas, preferably before bedtime. Sleep on it.
In the morning, rinse your face with water and apply moisturizer
6. Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties and is often used to treat chest and back acne. It also works as an effective astringent that removes oil and dirt trapped under the skin. The potent liquid also prevents bacteria and infections.
Put a few drops of tea tree oil on a cotton swab.
Dab the tea tree oil on affected areas.
Leave it on for about 30 minutes.
Wash with clean and cool water.
