Enlarged pores and blackheads not only muddy your complexion but also make your skin look more aged. Remove blackheads and clean clogged pores with an all-natural homemade paste made from simple household ingredients that you likely have in your pantry already. This recipe not only thoroughly cleans your face without harsh chemicals or exfoliation, but it also takes the sting out of insect bites and is an effective cleanser, as well. It is a gentle cleansing recipe that has been a home remedy for generations.

Baking Soda and Vinegar Blackhead Cleansing Facial Mask

Step 1

Measure the 2 tbsp. baking soda into the bowl.

Step 2

Pour the apple cider vinegar into the baking soda in small parts, to keep the mixture from bubbling over.

Step 3

Mix the two ingredients together until thoroughly blended.

Step 4

Using your fingers, spread a thick layer of paste over your face. Avoid the eye area.

Step 5

Lie back and relax for 20 to 30 minutes while the mask sets. Keep your head as still as possible to prevent drying chunks of the mask from falling off of your face.
