Blackheads are a hinder to a good-looking face and can take quite some time until you get rid of them. They are called that way because oxygen in the air makes them darker over time. They come in two shapes:
The easier ones come with a soft touch and can be easily removed. All you have to do is apply some alcohol and carefully start peeling them. Facial cleansing also helps.
On the other hand, some blackheads are hard and have a “rock” feel to them. They create a larger pore opening than the soft ones, and it’s a lot harder to remove them from the skin because they are entered deeper than usual.
It’s also not recommended to “pinch” them; this should only be left to a qualified professional.
But don’t fret! Here is a handy recipe for a permanent solution that is both quick and relatively painless. And it actually works!
Here is what you need:
- 2 tbsp. of mint toothpaste
- 1 tsp of salt
- Small container
- 2-3 ice cubes
Here’s what to do:
Mix the salt and the mint toothpaste until you get a fine compound. Then, apply it to the affected part with blackheads and leave it for 5 minutes to dry.
After 5 minutes, add some water and massage the area gently in a circular fashion. After the skin is clean, just finish the procedure by rinsing the area with ice.
Also, this method will close the cleaned pores. So, you will have both clean and smooth nose.
In What Way It Works?
The salt is a good skin peeler because of its natural antibiotic properties. It can not be dissolved in toothpaste, what makes it the perfect solution for blackheads. The peppermint toothpaste can open the pores and kill all of the bacteria.

Peppermint toothpaste, in particular, can clean pores deeply and remove blackheads.
Don’t worry if your nose becomes red! It will last just a short while. If you have dry skin, make sure you use a hydrant cream after the treatment.
One more note, massage your face gently.
