Crazy Ways That Help You Get Rid Of Stubborn Blackheads!

It’s quite common to have blackheads on your face, especially on the nose and on the T-zone. But it’s too annoying when we’ve tried everything possible to remove them but failed! Don’t worry; you’re not the only one suffering from this. I have had the same problem! I tried so many products and home remedies to remove these unwanted guests but they started to reappear no matter what. I then came across some quirky methods and they actually worked! Here are the crazy ways that help you get rid of stubborn blackheads easily at home!

1.  Fevicol

Who would have thought that glue like fevicol can be actually used to remove blackheads! As a kid, I used to apply fevicol on my hands, let it dry and then peel it off acting like I was peeling my skin. So the other day I had a thought that this can be applied to the nose as well and can be peeled off easily. I gave it a shot and believe me; it worked like wonders in removing my blackheads! It not only helped in removing the blackheads but also removed the dead skin as well. Amazing right?

How to use:

  1. Take ample amount of fevicol and apply a thick layer on the nose or wherever you have blackheads.
  2. Let it dry completely.
  3. Then like a peel-off mask, start peeling the glue slowly.

The stickiness of the glue will make it stick to your skin and then pull off the dead skin cells, blackheads and any kind of dirt on your nose or other areas where you’ve applied.


2. Brown tape

Yes, you heard it right! Brown tape or duct tape or the packaging tape, whatever you may call it, is powerful enough to remove the blackheads from your nose! This particular tape has a stronger adhesive compared to the clear tape or medical tape and easily removes blackheads.

How to use:

  1. Take the brown tape and cut in the desired length. Make sure it covers your nose fully.
  2. Press it against your nose firmly and wait for a minute.
  3. Slowly peel the tape off from your nose and you’ll see a lot of gunk on the tape already!

Keep one thing in mind that you do not use any other tapes than this since this has shown better results than the others.


3. Toothbrush and lemon

Toothbrushes can help in exfoliation as well as removal of dead skin cells and blackheads from your face.

How to use:

  1. Take a clean toothbrush that has soft bristles.
  2. Pour a few drops of lemon juice on the top and very gently start scrubbing your nose in circular motions.
  3. You can also dip the brush in hydrogen peroxide to keep it cleaner each time you scrub off the blackheads.

Do not use this method more than once a week and make sure that you avoid the area around the eyes. Also, avoid using it on open cuts, sores, and scratches as it will worsen the skin even more.


4. Bobby pins

Bobby pins are easily available at your home and you can not only use it to create those unique hairstyles but also use it to remove your blackheads! This method is so easy that you can do it anywhere and just need a bobby pin and a mirror!

How to use:

  1. Take a bobby pin and place its wider loop on your nose.
  2. Slowly press it in the downwards direction against your nose.
  3. Don’t press the pin too hard or it will hurt you.

This method will help in removing blackheads one by one and is so effective!


5. Toothpaste and baking soda

You can use any kind of toothpaste, even with a mint flavor to remove the blackheads. But toothpaste alone cannot be effective unless you mix it with baking soda.

How to use:

  1. Take a bowl and mix a small amount of toothpaste and baking soda in equal parts.
  2. Mix it well and make a paste.
  3. Steam your face before applying the paste if you want. This will open up the pores and make the process easier.
  4. Apply the paste on your nose and leave it for not more than a minute.
  5. Clean it with lukewarm or normal water.

This method helps in clearing out blackheads from the nose, but make sure you don’t keep it for a longer time. Baking soda can dry out your skin if left on for more than a minute.


So these were some of my crazy ways to remove blackheads from the face. These are so easy to do and the best thing about them is that all these things are readily available at home. Do let me know what you think of them or if you have any other quirky methods to remove blackheads. I’d love to know!

Stay healthy and keep smiling! 🙂

  1. They really are crazy. Maybe you would want to try d.i.y mask using gelatin to get rid of blackhead. I guess it is much better than using glue. Nice writing anyway. ☺
