The One Cheap Natural Product Dermatologists Swear By For Blackheads

January 18, 2018 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

For many of us, blackheads are the bane of our existence. It always seems like five minutes after a professional facialist extracts those stubborn blackhead plugs from deep within the pores on our noses, foreheads, and chins, they're back. 

 

Performing our own DIY extractions in the privacy of our bathroom is never recommended and could lead to broken skin and scarring, so forget that. And booking a facial every other week gets super pricey. So, what other option do you have? Actually, a pretty good one — this cheap, natural blackhead remover that won't make your dermatologist blanch in horror.

Most facial masks are fab. Depending on the ingredients used in a mask, this at-home treatment can moisturize dry skin, provide anti-aging benefits, soothe red skin, and be the affordable cure you're looking for to tackle acne and blackheads.

 

And, when it comes to unclogging pores, clay is the magic ingredient.

 

Clay masks made from bentonite clay, French green clay, Moroocan red clay, Kaolin clay are incredibly effective when it comes to dealing with blackheads. All of these clay types draw out impurities from the skin, sap up excess sebum that clogs pores, and reduce inflammation. The type of clay that is most beneficial to you depends a lot on your skin type, but most are excellent at addressing acne and blackheads in oily or combination skin. 

 

And if your clay mask just so happens to include tea tree oil or activated charcoal, all the better to attack excess oils and dirt and heal acne.

There's a reason Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask has more than 12,000 reviews on Amazon and is considered a cult favorite: it's made from 100 percent bentonite clay, provides powerful results in just 5-10 minutes, and costs less than $10. 

 

For the best results, steam your face for 5-10 minutes before applying the mask. It may tingle a bit — be sure not to leave it on for longer than recommended, especially if you have sensitive skin.
