Plagued by Blackheads? This Might Be the Simplest Trick to Get Rid of Them

Beauty on a serious budget!


We all get them every now and again, they’re no big deal but they are a bit of a pain. 

If blackheads tend to bug you from time to time, this simple and super-cheap trick might help.

Simply mix some freshly squeezed lemon juice, water and salt. Apply the mixture to your face and use as a very gentle scrub, massaging into the affected areas for two to four minutes before rinsing and using your regular cleanser.


Alternatively, you can just pour a small amount of salt on half of the cut lemon and use it like a sponge to cover the face.

A word to the wise though – this trick can be a little harsh on skin so it should not be used any more frequently than once a week.
