Far from a beauty enthusiast, but follows just the basics. Read along

1. Sugar and Honey

Honey is an antibacterial, good for removing acne. It also acts as a cleanser. the coarse sugar grains make sure to scrub off all those blackheads away from your face making it smooth and flawless.

2. Baking Soda and Toothpaste

Though, not recommended for continuous use, this can be a reliever if you get a last minute party invitation. The course structure of baking soda and its chemical components cause it to temporarily clears pores. But it also dries the skin and unless it's an absolute emergency, you'd rather not use this.

3. Coffee and Honey

Honey, as mentioned earlier is great for the skin. Coffee helps exfoliation, has anti-ageing effects and gives a flawless, brightened skin. The honey could be substituted with coconut oil which is equally beneficial for the skin. The coconut oil however must be in paste consistency to form a mask texture.

4. Lemon and Salt

Lemon has antioxidants and helps tighten pores while salt has antibacterial effects. Together, this duo helps in removing dead skin cells and clear up pores causing blackheads.

5. Turmeric and Coconut Oil

Turmeric has anti bacterial, anti inflammatory properties making it qualified enough to remove blackheads. Mix it with coconut oil or honey and you're good to go. Point to be noted: Avoid leaving it on for too long to avoid an orange-ish face (5-6 minutes are more than enough).

Personally this has worked well with me, do try it out and let me know how it does for you!

      These are interesting and unusual suggestions. I once knew someone who was troubled by sunburn in the night. He reached for what he thought was aftersun, but picked up toothpaste instead. It was a painful experience.
