Face products you probably have sitting in your kitchen cabinet is a bottle of apple cider vinegar and a box of baking soda. Baking soda is an exfoliant and will help with black heads along with stubborn acne. After washing your face at night, make a paste by mixing water and baking soda together and gently massage any problem areas. After, leave it on for 5 minutes and throughly rinse your face. Keep in mind not to rub your face too hard and only do this once a week to prevent irritating your skin.

The apple cider vinegar will serve as your toner. A toner is used to close your pores to prevent anything evil from getting back inside. When you have allowed your face to dry completely, take a cotton ball and apply in to your entire face or just your troubled areas. Use the technique of patting instead of rubbing so that you are not adding so much stress to your face. The smell is not the best which is why I only use it before bed, but it works wonders and I have seen a huge difference. Considering the fact apple cider vinegar can be a bit harsh depending on how sensitive your face is, adding water to your solution would be best. With a little patience and consistency, you will soon notice your blackheads disappear and your dark spots fade.
