Remove blackheads easily with plain old white glue. Yes, not only is it fun to peel dried glue, it works great on areas such as the nose, chin, and forehead to remove blackheads and is much more effective than the usual peel off mask and it's less expensive. Happy peeling!

White glue is also great for removing splinters. I know cause I have done it. Pulls that splinter completely out.

Test this on a small spot on your face first, for some of us it makes us itchy for hours afterward. Biore strips work wonders and they are not that expensive.

I was reading this tip about using the white glue to remove blackheads. Would this work on boil type blemishes my son has these, but mainly on the back of his neck. Also is it ordinary craft glue? Many thanks. Helen xx

Here is a simple way to make your own blackhead removing strips. I used to spend $10 per box (which lasted me 2 weeks) for many, many years.

The baking powder does not work it hurts A LOT! DO NOT use it with water said before. it stings and fizzes on your face BADLY! try bicarbonate of soda and cleanser. this is recommended by a makeup artist called Rae Morris.

Wash your face with WARM water. NOT HOT water. This will help to open your pores without drying out your skin. Then mix 3 tsp. honey and 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. Then put it on your trouble spots. Make sure not to put on too much, or it will continue to drip off. Just put on enough to make it stick to your face.

Lemon juice on a cotton ball works really well too. Remember to wash your face before putting anything on your face.

I am suffering from skin problems. My nose is surrounded by black marks. Whenever I pinch them, white colored small material comes from it. What kind of treatment should I use or which kind of doctor should I consult?

A dermatologist is the doc for you. Before you spend all that money try very warm water on a cloth and just hold it on your face for a few minutes. Ask your local pharmacist about a soap which will help you. The blackheads will eventually go away so don't risk permanent damage by picking at them.

Biore makes strips to remove blackheads, I too have this problem. I use a Biore strip once a week and it does seem to help.

There are many over the counter remedies that work quite well for some skin problems. You can consult a pharmacist first, and she could help you select a product to try. If such products do not help, you can consult your family doctor, who likely has a lot of experience with such a common ailment. A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in skin disorders, and you could go directly to one if you feel your skin condition is quite serious.

Wash face and open pores with warm water. Apply a paste of baking soda and water. When it begins to dry rinse with hot water, then splash with cool water. Perfectly clean!

I wanted to pass on what works for me -try using Ichthammol iointment. It is a black drawing salve and is available at any / most drugstores, just ask the pharmacist & it cost under $5.00. But it smells awful, like tar , but it works. steam your face & wash with a cleanser, take a small dab & I mean just enough to put on it, kind of thick, cover with a bandaid and in the morning most times the blackhead is up to the surface and ready to pop. If not do this for a few nights. It never fails me. Oh and this ointment works on Boils & etc.. Great stuff.

I have blackheads mainly on my nose. What can I do to get rid of them?

I have heard that if you put a thin coat of Elmer's glue on your nose, let it dry then peel it off, that the blackhead contents will peel off with the glue. Can't hurt to try! Good luck!

Biore strips, which are overpriced, will do the trick, but so will duct tape. With your skin clean, just press it on, leave for about a minute, and peel off. Use an astringent to shrink the pores afterward because oil clogs the pores and builds up to form blackheads.

When I was younger, I washed my face with phisoderm and a buff puff it cleared them up. It's a ph balanced face wash in a bottle not medicated by the clearasil. Don't know if it's still sold.

Apply a paste of baking soda and water. Let sit a few minutes then rinse off with hot water, following up with cold. It's natural and not damaging to your skin.

Smear Elmer"s glue on your face with your fingers. Let it dry completely, and then peel it off. Or you can buy little blackhead tools at any beauty supply store that will help remove them.

Does anyone have a home remedy for getting rid of blackheads?

By Sherry Evans from Deming, NM

Answers:

Home Remedy for Blackheads

My daughter has recently been prescribed BenzaClin (Clindamycin-benzoyl peroxide gel) and it's working great. Maybe plain old benzoyl peroxide would work? (03/28/2009)

By JoBear

Home Remedy for Blackheads

The only remedy I know of for blackheads that works is a prescription called Retin A. It's a creme. Its inexpensive and generics are available. I wouldn't waste time and money on things that don't work. You don't want scarring. (03/29/2009)
