4 ways to Get Rid of Blackheads in 24 Hour

It doesn’t sound like there’s anything you’re missing. I will say, though, that everyone’s skin is different—some people are more prone to inflammatory acne while some just get blackheads and whiteheads. If you understand what’s causing your blackheads, that can be the key to treating them.

What causes blackheads?

A quick primer: Blackheads and whiteheads are the building blocks for acne. They occur when dead skin, debris, and sebum (a.k.a. oil) get trapped in your pores. The difference between blackheads and whiteheads is that blackheads are open to the air which makes them turn black and whiteheads generally have a thin cover over them and are not exposed to the air, so they remain white. These clogged pores attract acne-causing bacteria, and that’s when you’ll get those papules, pustules, nodules and cysts—what we all know as pimples!

So, if you struggle with blackheads and whiteheads, you’re going to want to double-down on keeping your pores unclogged. Besides cleansing two times a day, you should make sure all of your cosmetics and skin-care products are non-comedogenic (meaning they are formulated NOT to clog the pores) and be sure to use a proper exfoliator.

What are the best ingredients for treating blackheads?

It sounds like you’ve tried a variety of products, but I want to talk about what you’re using to exfoliate. My recommendation would be using products with chemical exfoliation (what we call keratolytic) properties that will really help break down whatever is clogging your pores and exfoliate the skin. My two favorite ingredients for exfoliation are salicylic acid and retinol. They’re the ones I recommend most often to my patients for preventing blackheads.

Salicylic acid is ideal for treating non-inflammatory acne because it’s able to deeply penetrate the skin and clear out all the sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria that’s clogging our pores. Retinol is great for two reasons: It promotes cell turnover, which helps unclog our pores, and by clearing debris from our pores, retinol ensures that other helpful, acne-fighting ingredients can reach deep into our skin. Plus, it is drying, helping tamp down on problems with excess sebum (which can clog your pores, as I mentioned earlier).

Can your diet impact your skin? Here’s what a derm has to say:

I know you said you’ve used retinol before and didn’t feel like it worked for you. But be patient. There’s no exact or specific adjustment period for retinol—everyone’s skin is different. For some people it’s a couple of days, for others it’s a couple of weeks or even a month to see results. But those results are clinically proven by a lot of research, so I’d say it’s worth the wait.

What other things might be affecting my skin?

I will say that sometimes using too many products too often or too vigorously can sometimes promote blackheads and whiteheads. Scrubbing your face too much will make your acne more red and irritated, so if you have a lot of active breakouts, it’s best to stay away from harsh scrubs with beads or granules in them. Not only will they cause more redness and irritation, but rubbing your skin really hard and forcefully can actually cause more skin to get trapped within our pores and can actually make acne worse.

Also, be sure if you are adding or removing products from your routine that you do so one product at a time. That way, you can really find what is actually working for you. Pause when you’re washing and treating your face in the morning and evening. If your products are burning or stinging or causing more irritation, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re working… it could mean you’re having an adverse reaction. If you’re unsure about a product, doing a spot test is really helpful—apply the product in a small area on your neck or the side of your face to see how your skin reacts!

Should I pick them myself?

You can get blackhead extractions from your dermatologist (something I do for many of my patients!). And yes, you can do this at home, although I generally don’t recommend this. Picking at and manipulating your skin can cause inflammation, irritation, and even infections. So fight the urge and leave it to the pros!

There is no instant fix for blackheads and whiteheads. Some people are luckier when it comes to acne, but generally being more or less prone to acne comes down to genetics and hormones. I know acne and skin issues can have a real impact on one’s self-esteem, so it’s our job as dermatologists to help you treat this condition to the best of our ability and make sure we can get you comfortable in your own skin. With the right knowledge of why you’re getting those blackheads, you can hopefully save some time/money and find some products that will improve your skin!

Now you have to do these four things step by step to get rid of blackheads in just one day. This is very easy and didn’t take enough time to complete. Let’s start.

Step 1: Exfoliation

Did you know why exfoliating is important? Simple, because it helps to remove dirt and soft your blackhead. This is my all time favorite scrub which I do every week to prevent blackheads. That is nutmeg, yes are you shocked. For all those people how have oily skin and blackhead most use a nutmeg scrub to get rid of oil, as well as blackheads. I also add milk to it as it helps to get rid of old cells and leaves your skin super silky and smooth, if you want to make this scrub more effective add buttermilk instead of milk.

If you don’t like this then don’t upset instead of this scrub you can use this. A mixture of baking soda and mineral water: crushed sugar with diluted lemon juice or crushed salt with olive oil.

For nutmeg scrub take 1 tablespoon nutmeg powder and 1 or 2 tablespoons milk according to thickness. Wash your face and start applying this scrub into your face gently and do it in a circular motion always. Be gentle always, if you do quickly and fast you can easily damage your skin’s outer layer. Wait for at least 5 minutes. Rinse it off, Instantly dry with clean cloth or tissue.

Step 2: Dedicated tooth brush

Yes, you heard right toothbrush, don’t you ever used your regular mouth toothbrush most of us do that, but this is wrong, please don’t attempt it.

Use a soft bristle brush, clean it with water now add a few drops of lemon juice and neem oil (you can use another antiseptic oil). Wet your nose first, then very softly scrub your nose with the brush, don’t be mad be gentle. Wash your brush and reapply these things if you need.

Many of us brushes their whole face with this, please don’t do this ever and also remember to do this only where you have blackhead don’t do this to open pores or cuts please promise to me that you don’t attempt these things. I know most of us are crazy, so these things are necessary to tell you. Don’t mind.

Step 3: Lemon with Honey

I choose honey due to its hydrating and antioxidant properties, it’s also helping to tighten large pores, fine lines and gives you a glowing effect. But remember honey should be very sticky, so put it in the fridge before using.  You can take orange slice instead of lemon.

Start with clean hands. Take half lemon or orange whatever you want. Pour sticky honey to it, gently apply to your blackhead area you can apply this on your whole face if you want. Continue applying it for 3 or 4 minutes, leave it for 10 minutes. Wash it off and dry your face in the air or you can use a clean tissue. Make a yummy omelet of remaining egg.

Step 4: Egg mask

This was your last step and one of my favorite from all remedies because it gives the result what it claims but just ignore its smell.  You don’t admit until you try, please try its worth and effective.

Start with a clean face, take one egg white using fork beat it until it turns into foam. Make sure your egg white should be very foamy. Apply it all over your face and place chill cucumber or potatoes slices on your eyes and rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Remember if you want better result just leave it longer but don’t leave it more than 30 minutes.  By using wet clean cloth or wipes scrub the egg mask off very gently. Now look at the mirror your blackheads are gone and you got a super soft, healthy skin.

Rather than this take care of diet and daily skin care routine. Wash your pillow case every day. Allow follow these steps once in a month or after two weeks depending on your daily skin care schedule. Correct me if I am wrong with any word or anything.

Natural Ways to get rid of Blackheads on Nose

We all get them. Those pesky spots can appear on many parts of your body but mostly collect on your nose. What are they exactly? Blackheads are bumps that appear because of plugged up hair follicles. It’s a mild form of acne that’s surface looks black or dark, hence, the name, blackheads, although they can also appear yellow in color as well. Technically, blackheads are called comedones. It’s a collection of oil and skin cells that clog the hair follicle and causes a breakout.

Are You At Fault?

Blackheads do not occur because of dirt. They happen below the surface of the skin even if you are cleaning your face on a regular basis. In short, you are not responsible for the blackheads that appear on your body.

Can You Shrink Your Pores?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Some people just have larger pores than others. It isn’t possible to shrink your pores, however, there are some things you can do to give your pores the appearance of being smaller. Age, genetics and your exposure to the sun also determine how large your pores are.

What Can You Do?

There are no special treatments or products that you need to use to get rid of your blackheads on nose. Instead, you can use some home remedies, with products that you have already in your cupboards. It’s also a cheaper alternative to store bought products that promise the same thing.

Facial Masks

1.) Egg Whites to get rid of blackheads on nose

You can create a mask by using egg whites to tighten your pores. It will remove the blackheads you have now, as well as, diminish the possibility of other blackheads forming. This is a great mask to use because it doesn’t dry out your skin like some other home remedies, as well as, the egg whites give your skin some much-needed nutrients.


  • A bowl
  • One egg
  • Toilet paper of facial tissue
  • Clean towel

The first step in making this mask is to divide the egg yolk from the white. Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Next, apply a small layer of egg white onto your nose and face. There are two options for the next step.

Egg White Remedy No.1

Take a strip of toilet paper (or facial tissue) and place it over the egg white on your face. Let that layer dry. Then apply a second layer of egg white over the tissue. It works best if you dip your fingers into the egg white and then swab it onto your face so the tissue doesn’t move around or bunch up. Let this layer dry as well. It’s up to you if you want to repeat the step and use the third layer. It’s normal to feel a tight, pulling feeling as the mask dries. Once it is completely dry, take off the tissue and wash your face to take off any remaining residue. Dry your face gently and moisturize.

Egg White Remedy No.2

You don’t have to use toilet paper or tissue if you don’t want to. You can apply three to five egg white layers to your face. Make sure to let each layer dry before applying the next one or the mask will not work.

2.) Clay Mask to get rid of blackheads on nose

The main ingredient in this mask is Bentonite clay (available at many health and wellness stores). It has been used for hundreds of years to treat skin related problems since it is rich in minerals. It works by drawing out the gunk and impurities that can build up in your pores. The mask will give your skin a lift, helping with circulation and overall health, while taking care of your blackheads.


  • One tablespoon (approximately) of Bentonite clay
  • Water or apple cider vinegar

You can add either water or apple cider vinegar to the clay. If you have sensitive or dry skin, it’s a good idea to mix the clay with water instead.

Mix either water or apple cider vinegar into the clay, to form a thick paste, but that is pliable (easily bent). With clean fingers, cover your nose (and or your entire face) with a thin layer and let it dry for ten to twenty-five minutes. Your face will tighten as the mask dries. It’s up to you how long you want to keep the clay on your face. You can either let it dry part way or completely. Rinse the paste off with warm water and follow up with some moisturizer.

Pore Strips

The following are homemade versions of pore strips. The strips are made from ingredients that act as an adhesive. Cotton strips can be made from cutting up a clean, cotton shirt that you don’t want or you can use gauze for the same effect. When you rip the strip off of your nose, it will pull the dead skin cells and oil from the pores, taking the blackheads with them. This doesn’t put an end to blackheads forever, but it temporarily takes care of them after they have appeared. The great thing about making homemade versions of pore strips is that they save you money and you know exactly what is being put on your face.

3.) Honey and Cinnamon Strips to get rid of blackheads on nose

The delicious combination of honey and cinnamon is a great way to get rid of blackheads. Honey has natural, anti-bacterial agents that keep the bacteria that cause acne at bay. It also acts as an adhesive to pull out the gunk clogging your pores. Cinnamon is known to increase blood flow and circulation in the skin, giving you a nice, healthy glow.


  • Raw, organic honey
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Cotton strips

Mix enough honey and cinnamon together to form a paste that will cover your nose. Dab a thin layer onto your blackheads and put a clean, cotton strip over it. Let it dry for three to five minutes and then remove it from your face. Follow up by rinsing your face clean, as well as, moisturizing.

4.) Milk and Honey Strips to get rid of blackheads on nose

Milk and honey have ingredients that keep your skin looking soft and smooth. The main objective, when the two are mixed together, is to work like an adhesive.


  • One teaspoon of milk
  • One tablespoon of raw, organic honey
  • Cotton strips

Mix together the milk and honey. Heat it up in the microwave for around five to ten seconds, and then mix it again to make sure it is blended. Once the mixture is a reasonable temperature, smear a thin layer onto your blackheads, and then place a clean, cotton strip onto it. Let it dry for around twenty minutes and then slowly peel off the cotton strip. Rinse your face with cold water and follow up with moisturizer.

Toners and Scrubs

5.) Lemon Toner to get rid of blackheads on nose

Lemon juice acts as an astringent and will make your skin contract, making your pores appear tighter. If you use this toner in the summer, make sure to use sunscreen since the lemon can lighten your skin. If you have sensitive skin, dilute the lemon juice with some water.


  • One lemon
  • Small bottle
  • Cotton balls

Before bedtime, rinse your face and then pat dry. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into a small bottle. Dampen a cotton ball with the lemon juice and apply to the area where your blackheads are. In the morning, rinse with warm water and then apply moisturizer. You can use this toner about three to four times a week, but be aware that the lemon juice can sometimes sting a bit. Discontinue if you find it too irritating for your skin. You can store the remaining lemon juice in the fridge for around a week.

6.) Mint and Apple Cider Vinegar Toner to get rid of blackheads on nose

This works well as a toner because the apple cider vinegar helps get rid of the things causing your blackheads, and the mint adds a cooling sensation, as well as, stopping any swollen inflammations around the blackhead. Inflammation always proves difficult in unclogging the stuff inside your pores, but the mint will help loosen that up.


  • Three tablespoons of ACV
  • Eight ounces of water
  • Three tablespoons of crushed mint leaves
  • Small bottle
  • Cotton balls

Mix the mint and apple cider vinegar together in a small bottle. It’s important for the ingredients to steep for around one week, in a dark and cool place. Once the ingredients have steeped for that period, strain the mixture and add your water. You will then have to store the toner in the fridge for around six days or so. After that, you are ready to use it. It’s suggested that you use it nightly before you go to bed. Rinse your face with water and then apply the toner to your affected areas with a cotton ball. If you have sensitive skin it’s advised that you rinse it off after a few hours. If not, let it stay until morning. Rinse it off and follow with some moisturizer.

7.) Epsom Salt to get rid of blackheads on nose

Using Epsom salt is a natural and effective way of treating the blackheads on your nose.


  • One teaspoon Epsom salt
  • Hot Water
  • Iodine (few drops)
  • Cotton ball
  • Washcloth

Mix together the Epsom salt and iodine with a little bit of hot water. You want to make sure that the salt completely dissolves. Allow the concoction to cool down at room temperature. Using a cotton ball, apply the mixture to your nose. Let it dry and then use a cloth to wash it off. Follow up with some moisturizer.

8.) Sugar Scrub to get rid of blackheads on nose

Exfoliating is great for your skin because it gets rid of unwanted, dead skin cells. These skin cells are part of the reason your pores become clogged, you have acne breakouts and get whiteheads and blackheads. It also restores circulation, leaving your skin with a healthy and soft glow. It is best to use jojoba oil for this remedy; however, olive, grapeseed, and sweet almond will do in a pinch.


  • One cup of sugar (white or brown)
  • Four tablespoons jojoba oil
  • Glass jar (air tight)
  • Essential oils (optional)

Mix the jojoba oil into one cup of sugar, stirring until it is a good consistency. At this time, you can add some essential oils to make it more fragrant, but you don’t have to. Give it a stir before using, rinse your face with water and then scrub the mixture onto your face using your fingertips. Massage into your nose and other areas of your face using circular motions. Rinse it off and follow up with some moisturizer. It’s a good idea not to do this more than two to three times a week. If you overuse it, your face may become dried out or irritated.

Make sure to store your mixture into a glass jar in a dark, cool place. Any unused product will last as long as the expiry date for the oils you’ve used. Some people prefer to make a new mixture every month and a half to ensure the quality and freshness, but it’s up to you.

9.) Oatmeal to get rid of blackheads on nose

There are two different recipes for an oatmeal scrub. The first is an oatmeal and yogurt one.


  • Two tablespoons oatmeal
  • Three tablespoons yogurt (plain)
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive oil

Mix together all of the ingredients listed. You only need a small amount of olive oil and lemon juice. Apply the scrub to your face and leave it on for five minutes. Rinse your face with warm water and follow up with some moisturizer.

The second oatmeal scrub combines the acidity of the tomato and the anti-bacterial quality of honey.


  • Oatmeal
  • Four tomatoes
  • One teaspoon honey

Squeeze the juice of four tomatoes and mix it together with your honey and enough oatmeal to make a paste-like consistency. Apply it onto your skin using a gentle, circular motion with your fingertips. Leave the scrub on for around ten minutes. Wash it off with warm water and follow up with some moisturizer.

10.) Green Tea to get rid of blackheads on nose

Green tea is well known for having beneficial and healing qualities, however, it can also be used against blackheads. This particular scrub will clean oily skin and aid in unclogging pores.


  • Dry green tea leaves
  • Water

Mix together the green tea leaves with enough water to make a paste. Gently apply the scrub over your nose (and face if you desire) by doing circular motions with your fingertips. It is suggested that you do this for several minutes. Rinse off with warm water and moisturize afterward.

11.) Cornmeal to get rid of blackheads on nose

Cornmeal is a fantastic ingredient because it is abrasive enough to deep clean your pores.


  • One tablespoon powdered cornmeal
  • Facial cleanser

Mix together the cornmeal with the facial cleanser you regularly use to wash your face. Before you apply the mixture, steam your face to help loosen your pores. Scrub on the paste in a circular motion with your fingertips, concentrating on the problem area. After two to three minutes, rinse off your face with cold water. This will help constrict your pores.

12.) Turmeric to get rid of blackheads on nose

Many times turmeric is used to help with the healing of minor burns, however, it can also be used for the removal of blackheads.


  • Turmeric powder
  • Two tablespoons mint juice

Mix together the turmeric powder and mint juice. Apply it to your nose and let it dry for a few minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and follow up with some moisturizer. Another option is that you can make a paste using turmeric powder, milk, and red sandalwood. Apply to your blackheads, wait ten minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Follow up with some moisturizer.

13.) Baking Soda and Water to get rid of blackheads on nose

Baking soda works great as an exfoliating scrub because it has fine granules. Such a simple product packs a big punch when it comes to blackheads; however, try not overuse this method. Your skin may get dry due to the saltiness of the baking powder.


  • Baking soda
  • Water

Mix together the baking soda and water and form a thick paste (make sure it will be spreadable though). Massage the paste into the affected area in a circular motion. Rinse off, pat dry and follow up with some moisturizer. This is an extremely inexpensive way to help with your blackheads.

14.) Steam to get rid of blackheads on nose

It’s a mythos that steam will open up your pores; however, it does soften up the trapped oil and skin cells that form blackheads, reducing the appearance of them.


  • Water
  • Large bowl
  • Clean towel

Fill a large bowl with boiling water. Make sure to cool it down slightly so you don’t risk burning yourself. Lean over the bowl, with a towel over your head, formed like a tent so steam doesn’t escape. Do this for five to ten minutes to have the steam loosen up your pores. When you are finished, rinse your face with lukewarm water and wipe at the blackheads on your nose. Follow up with some moisturizer. You can repeat this steam treatment several times a week as needed.


Removing blackheads, and skin care, in general, is a fine line. You don’t want to overdo any cleansing, pore strips, toners or scrubs because it will make things worse over time rather than better. Keep a good skin regime going and try all of the home remedies to see which ones work best for you. You might even discover some treatments on your own!
