  1. How often should you follow these methods?

  2. Wenya

    Hey!!! Question can I use cinnamon instead of nutmeg?

    • Becky

      Hi Wenya, I know this may be extremely late, but I think people would benefit from my response to your question.

      While you can use cinnamon, I would highly encourage you to stay away from it. Many people (including myself) have used cinnamon and had it sting and even temporarily burn our faces. It’s extremely unpleasant.

      I hope this helps you or anyone else reading these comments. :)

    I just tried the water and baking soda method and it made my skin sting, is that a bad thing?

    • Yea my face stang too. But it wasn’t very painful

    • Stacey

      I know this is late, but I’m sure if I’m seeing this for the first time right now, others are too.

      I’m really surprised that baking soda paste was recommended because this seems like a really good, informative site. Baking soda is WAY too strong for use on the face and chest (especially the breasts) and should definitely never be used as a paste on your skin. It’s too basic for our skin and will dry it out, like when used on your hair. If you feel that baking soda is a must for you, I would dilute it to 1 tbsp bs / 1 c water.

      I hope this helps.

    So, I have been washing my face with castile soap (oil-based soap) for the past 5 months, but I never did it the way you did (letting the oil sink) I just used it as soap. So, I am starting that.
    Also, I tried the milk and nutmeg exfoliant today. I have never exfoliated before, so this should be interesting. I think I did it to hard, because my cheek-skin was really hurting, so I lightened up a little. My skin feels great though!
    I break out a lot, and I get black heads around my lips and nose, so I hope this helps!!

    What is your ratio of nutmeg to milk?

  5. Lauren

    I absolutely LOVE the milk and nutmeg scrub, makes my skin feel wonderful and even got instant results!

  6. TANYA

    my husband and i have got them under and around eye area so what should we use

    As a last try, because nothing else worked I tried the soft bristled tooth brush and lemon juice, I tried it once, very lightly I went in circular motions on the blackheads I had by my nose. I woke up with my skin bleeding in the area I had rubbed and completely torn up, I only noticed it in the morning and it scabbed over the next day.. It is a very very bad way to get rid of youre black heads and it even get rid of them. Be careful. & do not use that method even if all else fails.

  9. Alexandra Richardson

    Can you recommend a good foundation / tinted moisturiser? At the moment I have LOADS of blackheads all over my nose and also spread onto my cheeks, but mainly it’s my nose. I cover it up with foundation nearly every day unless I stay at home. I know this is bad, but it looks bad. I’m going to start your home remedies, but I wonder if you have any good tips for foundation base that won’t completely clog up your pores?

  10. HeySmileyFace

    hello!!! I have lots of whiteheads on my forehead an chin and loads of blackheads on and around my nose.Please help I need results fast!!!

    Thankyou if anyone replies :)

  11. Cindy

    I got some “zits” on my vagina lips and on my butthole edges right where it stretches and all on my cheeks any help?i pop them and then cum and the cum drops onto them could this be why? :o thx!

  12. Cindy

    Oh btw my butthole is very loose so could it be from frequent anal or stretching? I tend to relax with some KY Jelly and practice slow anal gaping after work every night before my husband gets home (he dislikes anal) so maybe it’s from me using dirty fists when I go in?

  13. Abeer

    I have tried all the ways on and off and I agree they are helpful.But are all these ways effective for white heads as well?

    • Becky

      I beleive this encourages white heads to come out of your skin (from personal experience) so yes, in a way it does. I wouldn’t use any of these on large “active” whiteheads though. It may cause more irritation and spread the acne.

      Sorry this response is so late, I figured that even if you didn’t need this information anymore that someone else would like to see an answer to your question. :)

  14. Abeer

    I have tried all the ways on and off and I agree they are helpful.But are all these ways effective for white heads as well?

    I needed something to get deep into my pores for blackheads, which seemed to never go away, also to control excess oil. The Citrus Clear Pore Mask did the trick! I was advised by a dermatologist that the mask does a wonderful job clearing blemishes. It helps control oil and shine even after going all day with a full face of foundation and concealers. I have combination skin and this mask doesn’t dry my skin out at all. It’s great for spot treatments too.

  16. What’s up to every one, it’s really a pleasant for me
    to pay a quick visit this web site, it contains valuable Information.

  17. Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading
    through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!

    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  18. Yes! Finally someone writes about dy nutrition.

  19. This site was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something that helped me.


  20. It’s awesome for me to have a website, which is helpful
    designed for my knowledge. thanks admin

  21. Yoolie

    Large, shallow pores and dry, sun and chemical damaged skin on a 70 yo face. Is this a recipe for disaster – especially if you’re compulsively trying to clean it?!

    I love Betty’s advice and will proceed as recommended – starting with the mantra that my blackheads are probably only visible to me, myself and I. Well, certainly not as apparent as the DAMAGE of a misspent youth. Before I begin, does anyone have product or treatment advice for the wrinkles on my super-dry skin. Is using oil, such as that being sold by Betty or Yon-Ka Serum a better approach than adding layers of moisturizer (Cerave)?

    • Terri

      Try the oil cleansing method, you’ll love it especially jojoba oil, borage oil is great to apply in a tiny amount on your face after cleansing and it is great for mature skin like us! It is a little expensive starting off but believe me you only use a small amount, great for crows feet, laugh lines and best of all dry skin! When I put it on I give it time to sink in and if I am going to wear make up I blot off the excess and apply my make up. I have had so many comments on my soft dewy skin compared to when I was using my six hundred dollar spa regimen that left me dry and peeling no more of that for me, all natural can’t believe the money I’m saving!

  22. Miley

    Read this blog today (great blog by the way) I came home and tried the honey and it worked VERY WELL! I’ll be trying the other ways just because, but I was surprised that the honey worked that well. Love to have home remedies and natural at that. Thanks for sharing the knowledge!

  23. I have combination skin and this mask doesn’t dry my skin out at all. It’s great for spot treatments too.

  24. Ruby

    My mom doesn’t buy cows milk but she does buy almond and rice milk. Do you think that will work the same? And I use some regular Elmer’s glue on my face and leave it to dry and peel off as a black head remover just like the honey trick and it seems to work well but I’m worried about the harsh chemicals and things that could be inside the glue. Do you think it is okay to use it?

  25. Elsie

    Why don’t you remove/delete the disgusting sexual comments?
    Yech. I won’t return to this site. E.

    • Rebecca

      Don’t show attention to trolls, Ignore them and they’ll go away..
      I’m sure you’re old enough to scroll and ignore the words, saying you won’t return to the site is a little childish.

      • Eileen

        I do agree with that. It’s life, the world is beautiful as it is but somehow bad rubbish collects. Either ignore or clean it out but the beauty still overpowers it because it’s the real thing.
        Thank you for your splendid DIY’s. This will save me $$. I will try them this weekend. And let you know the result.

  26. Hi, always i used to check webpage posts here early in the break of day, since i love to learn more and more.

  27. jhon white

    It’s easy ,it have an face mask named “PILATEN”,you can buy one,put it on your noose or face where the blackhead in.about 2-3times,then you will find the blackhead remove,…..

  28. Lili

    Regarding egg white mask. Many years ago, I had a client who is a very beautiful Asian woman with the MOST gorgeous radiant skin. I was having horrible break outs. She told me to do an egg white mask. She also gave me a warning which helped me not to scare away from doing the mask again. If you have blackheads and breakouts, do the mask. YOU WILL BREAK OUT AGAIN AFTER DOING THIS MASK, because it pulls out a lot of deep crud. Do the mask again a few days later. Then only once a week. It can be very drying, so hydrate! I used olive oil a long time ago. It worked great, however, there are some awesome moisturizing recipes on this site! Go do it! It is worth the effort, though not crunchybetty’s favorite method. It will clear your blackheads, acne and all right up!

  30. Bas

    Hi my name is Bas and i’m from Holland.
    Thank you for this blog, i definitely gonna try a few of your tips! Every week i use a facemask to remove my blackheads, but it doesnt work very well.. I also use a spoon (i dont know the name ) to push the blackheads out of my nose and chin.

  32. charlie

    my mum bought me some clarins moisturiser and toner for oily skin and I have been using it 3 times a week for 3 months and if anything I know have more blackheads. Please can I have some help. Plus I have really sensitive skin.

  33. I heard that Hydrogen Peroxide helped on acne and blackheads. Yea, not a natural way but I gave it a try. It only dried out my skin and has nothing good to my skin. I took a before and after photo using a skin microscope and blackheads are still in my pores. Thank you for this amazing entry. Will try it out sooner or later. I believe that natural ingredients are better for our skin as they do no harm, not like chemicals.

I can’t wait to try your methods,because of health reasons I have gone all natural. I will try to keep you posted. I’m so excited! I seems so easy.

  40. Excellent website you have here but I was
    curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the
    same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I
    can get advice from other experienced people that share the same
    interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Bless you!

  43. Stacey

    Another way to combat this is to use a Norwex microfiber body cloth. Does wonders for the complexion!

  44. This paragraph will assist the internet visitors for creating new website or even a blog from start to end.

  45. The coding structure will then be referenced up against the knowledge that exists for the
    gene databases. Although most gimmicks that you can get nowadays are geared
    towards distinct eating patterns or ideals, hypnosis is
    just a way to buy your brain focused on the goals you would like to
    achieve. To accomplish this, the hypnotist leaves inside the mind
    of the patient a posthypnotic suggestion.

  46. Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to
    get anything done.

  47. Thank you a lot for sharing this with all of us you really recognise what you’re talking approximately!

    Bookmarked. Kindly also consult with my site =).

    We could have a link trade contract between us

  48. I spent so much money on cosmetics, I had no idea that I can make my own face cleaners at home. Thank you so much for sharing! I will try your suggestions!

  50. JustHelping

    well blackheads are actually little tubes of plastic like oil aren’t they?

  51. Thanks for the nice blog!

  52. sara

    Not harmful, but a pain, ugly, and hard to get rid of. Just be careful when u remove them, bacteria can get into the little pockets you leave behind and get infected.

  53. Macy

    I usually exfoilitate once a week hope this helps :)

  2. […] First, what exactly are blackheads? As Dr. Oz explains in this really strange segment on his show [they pop the most disgusting and gigantic fake blackheads as a demonstration] blackheads are caused by bacteria and oil getting in your pores – just like a pimple. On one hand pimples’ heads are closed which makes them swell up and get red, while blackheads have an open head which allows air to get in the pore and then appear black! Fucking disgusting! Don’t you want to pop them even more now? Well my friend, I found the cure for you — HONEY. I scoured the internet looking for a cheap and natural remedy for these blackheads and hit the jackpot on Crunch Betty with a article titled 5 Natural Ways to Remove Blackheads. […]
