How to get dirt & blackheads from deep in your skin

Updated April 17, 2017

Blackheads are small pieces of dirt that get rooted into your pores. In order to remove dirt and deep blackheads, it is important to thoroughly cleanse the skin, and use natural remedies to remove the dirt. Oil and heavy make-up can make blackheads root deeper and the condition can become worse. Blackheads can cause larger pores and flaky skin. By getting rid of the dirt and blackheads on your skin yourself, you can have healthier skin.

Wash your skin with warm water, a mild facial scrubber and face wash two to three times a day. Make sure to use light circular motions while washing your face.

Steam the affected area often by putting hot steam, from a shower or steamer, close to the area. The steam will help your pores open up and clear out.

Exfoliate your skin on a daily basis by wetting the area with warm water, and gently rubbing the exfoliator in circular motions on your skin. Do this for five to 10 minutes, and then rinse the area with warm water again. Exfoliating will help open up the pores and remove the deep blackheads.

Apply blackhead strips to your face or nose, and peel them off to remove blackheads. Do this process once every couple of days.

Mix together almond powder, rose water and oatmeal to make a soft paste. Rub the mixture on the affected area and let is set for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse the mixture off with cool water. Apply this mixture to the area once a day, or once every other day.

Rub lemons over the area before you go to bed. Lemon juice will close up your pores blocking oils and dirt from soaking into your pores in the night.


Do not put hot steam too close to your face, it will burn.
