Honey and lemon have long been known for their healthy skin benefits. Raw honey provides moisture and nutrients to the skin and lemon helps to brighten, cleanse and kill bacteria. Place a few drops of honey on half of fresh lemon. Rub the honey and lemon all over the face and leave on for five to ten minutes before rinsing clean. The skin will instantly look brighter, and the dirt and bacteria that are causing the blackheads will be removed.
While blackheads can be frustrating to deal with, they are not contagious to others. If blackheads are picked at, however, there is the chance that the bacteria can spread across the skin, colonizing other areas that are touched after the acne.
As the most common skin problem in the United States, people who have to deal with blackheads or acne should not feel alone. A good skin cleaning routine and proper treatment will help blackheads to clear quickly.
