Acne is an inevitable part of life. It is frustrating and unsightly, but thankfully there are many ways to deal with it.
While a ginormous red blemish is incredibly embarrassing, a blackhead covered nose is infuriating. So small, yet so unattractive.
Blackheads refer to an opening in your skin that has become discolored due to oxidization. They form before a significant amount of bacteria has time to enter the hair follicle, which is why they remain so small.
Blackheads are most commonly found around the nose and in the dip of your chin. These particular areas are more likely to have excess oil build up and the crevices are so small, its harder to keep clean.
There are several products on the market that are targeted for blackhead removal, but I like to do it the DIY way. Here are 3 blackhead treatments you can make from home. [Keep Reading]

Do you have acne scars on your face?
It seems like double trouble. First, you are traumatized by the nasty pimples. Then, these pimples leave behind ugly scars.
Acne scars are an unfortunate reminder of your acne breakouts and stay with you long after the pimples have passed. They tend to appear as deep, raised or pitted skin and occur when a pimple or sore gets popped or broken, ending up in a layer of damaged skin.
These scars look so horrible that you hesitate to see the mirror. You tend to avoid social settings just because of these patches of raised skin on your face.
And more bad news—acne scars are stubborn and don’t disappear easily. But that doesn’t mean you have to use expensive treatments like laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels to fix them.
Want to erase acne scars without going for expensive treatment? Learn how these simple home remedies can help you — best of all, they can be found right in your very own kitchen. [Keep Reading]
