How to Naturally Eliminate Blackheads

Blackheads are a very common skin problem. They tend to appear more frequently on oily skin than dry skin, as they oftentimes arise when oil solidifies in pores obstructed from a lack of face washing or a change in weather.  Their black color is due to the fact that the outer layer of skin oxidizes when it is exposed to air.

Generally, blackheads are located on the face, especially around the nose, and tend to be very noticeable.  Luckily, there are ways to naturally eliminate blackheads that are not only budget-friendly but also simple and effective!
