Blackheads are stubborn and difficult to remove. They are pores clogged with oil, dead skin and grime. They show up mostly on our noses, but can appear any where else, even in ears. You can go to your esthetician for extractions. Many people rather not. Extractions can be painful, costly and if not done correctly can irritate he skin and cause hyperpigmentation. I have tried nose strips, extractions, and peels. Nothing worked as good as this easy and simple remedy for blackheads did. To effectively remove your blackheads and keep them from coming back do this once a week. Apply this on clean skin. All you need is fresh lemon juice and cinnamon. Mix the lemon juice with powered cinnamon. Apply on your blackheads and white heads on your nose. Remove after 5 minutes. The cinnamon will make your nose red, especially if you have sensitive skin. You may need to leave it on for longer depending on how clogged your pores on your nose are. Remember to keep them from coming back you must to be consistent. I recommend doing this once to two times a week.
