Blackheads makes your over all look dull...Along with all these remedies even applying raw milk early morning helps. It also helps in removing tan and dirt from facial skin.

Nice tips! Blackheads are a torture for me. I heard if you've got blackheads, it's recommended to use toner each time you wash your face. I've bought Pure Skin Blackhead Toner Deep Action lately and I'm using. Can you pls me if it is to be used once/twice a day or every time you wash your face. Thanks!

Lemon juice seems to help me, i buy the lemon juice in the plastic lemon and add a couple drops to a cotton ball and rub on my face, no need to rinse off unless it drys your face then i recomend using water to rinse the lemon juice off. ps dont rub the lemon juice in one spot for a long time its an acid and so it will rub your skin off
