Many of us get acne that forms when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria become trapped within our pores, this type of acne is called whiteheads. Blackheads form when oil and dead cells trapped in the pore lining make their way to the pore opening. Both are not pretty to look at and let’s face it, sometimes we get a little lazy and forget they’re even there. It happens, but it’s o.k.

Baking Soda: This is an ingredient that is used in microdermabrasion, which is a method used to exfoliate skin. You can make a paste with just water and baking soda and exfoliate your skin or use apple cider vinegar with baking soda. The apple cider and baking soda combo serves as an astringent and has many anti-bacterial properties that will clear out your pores.

Toothpaste: You’ve heard of putting toothpaste on your pimples to make them dry out, well it’s the same concept. Simply apply toothpaste on your whiteheads and blackheads and let it sit for 25 minutes. It might sting a little, but it’s not that bad.
