Remedy to get rid of blackheads on face and chin

1. Baking Soda
Baking soda isn’t just for baking, or keeping your refrigerator smelling fresh. The antiseptic quality of it makes it a wonderful product for your skin. It not only works as an exfoliant to scrub away dead skin cells, leaving the skin soft and smooth, it’s also an incredible contender against those pesky blackheads. And, as baking soda also helps to neutralize the skin’s pH, it encourages the skin to produce less oil, which means that after regular use, you may be able to say goodbye to those blackheads for good.

Repeat the remedy once or twice a week to remove debris from pores that can cause them to clog, resulting in blackheads.

2. Cinnamon
Cinnamon is an anti-bacterial spice that can be used to make an aromatic face mask that offers all sorts of benefits to the skin, including the removal of blackheads. It also helps to eliminate flaky skin as well as acne, and it can be used as a body scrub for a smoother, more glowing complexion.

4. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice contains alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) citric acid which works as a natural astringent to remove dead skin, making it perfect for unstopping clogged pores. Lemon juice is also rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that stimulates collagen production to improve skin health and reduce scarring from acne.

To use lemon juice for a clearer, blackhead-free complexion:

First, wash your face with your favorite gentle, natural cleanser.
Squeeze about one teaspoon of juice from an organic lemon into a glass or ceramic bowl.
Dip a cotton ball into the lemon juice and dab it onto any blackheads that you have.
Allow it to dry for at least 10 minutes before rinsing with cool water – or leave it on as an overnight treatment and rinse your face off in the morning.
This lemon juice treatment should be used once a day.

5. Green Tea
The vitamins and antioxidants in green tea help to break up excess oil and reduce inflammation in acne-prone skin, as well as to help protect it from future damage.

To use green team to clear blackheads:

Boil about one cup (8 ounces) of water and then remove from heat.
Steep two bags or a tea ball containing about two teaspoons of organic green tea for one hour.
Pour liquid into a glass or ceramic bowl and cool until lukewarm.
Dab liquid onto blackheads and allow it to dry for at least 10 minutes.
Rinse with cool water, pat dry and then moisturize with an all-natural moisturizer.
This treatment can be used once per day.

6. Honey
Honey is both antibacterial and antiseptic, properties that help remove blackheads by destroying germs or impurities that clog pores, making it another great choice for those with acne-related blackheads. Honey also acts as a natural antibiotic, helping to pull dirt from the pores of the skin to clear blackheads as well as tightening and hydrating the pores for a clearer complexion.

If you have an allergy or sensitivity to honey, use one of the other methods suggested instead, as even applying it topically can cause a reaction in some people.

Remove blackheads with honey by:

Heat about a tablespoon of pure raw honey in a small jar until it is warm to the touch (placing the jar of honey into a bowl of very hot water will do the trick).
Dab some of the warm honey onto any blackheads and allow it to soak in for about 10 minutes.
Remove with a warm, damp cloth.
You can leave this treatment on overnight for even greater results, rinsing it off in the morning. Repeat daily.

7. Turmeric
Turmeric is one of the best medicinal spices there is, offering powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The popular cooking spice will stain skin if applied to treat blackheads, but by using Kasturi turmeric, a non-edible variety, you can avoid that as it is non-staining.

To use Kasturi turmeric for eliminating blackheads:

Mix a small amount of Kasturi turmeric with water or coconut oil to form a paste.
Dab the paste onto blemishes and let it soak in for 10 to 15 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water.
While organic Kasturi can be hard to find, most local Indian markets sell it, and you can also find it Amazon.com here. Use this treatment daily to get rid of and prevent future blackheads.

Natural way to get rid of mice in the walls

Keep your home clean. Many times mice are drawn into homes on the search for food. If there is nothing to eat, mice will be less likely to stay. Keep all food stored properly in airtight containers or in places that are safe from mouse attack.

Apply peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is a natural deterrent. The smell is simply too intense for rodents and they will not try to go near it. It also helps to mask the scent of any tasty morsels that have been missed when cleaning. It also gives the house a lovely smell, and is not toxic, unlike many synthetic chemical treatments. You can get peppermint oil in most health food stores and even some major grocery stores.
Place a drop or two on a cotton ball.
Place a cotton ball under or near your garbage can to deter mice from getting into it.
Place the cotton balls in areas where mice are likely to enter your house, by doorways, or heat vents, etc.
Peppermint oil cotton balls need to be replaced after 5-7 days, depending upon the quantity of oil you put on it.
Try growing peppermint plants near the entryways. You can use the mint in cooking, as well as it serving a deterrent purpose.

Use dried snake feces. Visit a local reptile center, zoo, or pet store and ask for some dried snake poo. You can also sometimes find someone who owns a pet snake. Place near entrances and in places where mice seem to go. This will keep mice away.
Be sure to keep the feces out of the reach of children and pets.

4
Zap mice with ultrasonic sounds. There are electronic units sold that emit an ultrasonic beeping sound that rodents hate. They should be available at your local home improvement store or online.
These work only on a single line of sight, so you need to know the exact path the mice are taking.
The units may only work for a short time because mice can become used to them.

5
Use a commercial, organic deterrent. Many companies that specialize in organic garden and home products make mice repellents that are better for the environment than traditional poisons. Many of these products use natural ingredients, such as peppermint, that are known to be disagreeable to mice. They will not kill mice but they should keep them out of areas where the product is applied.
These products should be available at your local gardening or home improvement center. If you want a specific product, try doing an online search to see where it is available locally.

Get a cat. A house cat can take care of the problem. Cats that spend time outdoors are more likely to hunt to find their own food and may track down that mouse. Just be aware, not all cats have enough energy, interest or training to hunt mice. Kittens typically have to be taught by the mother to easily become a mouser. Well-fed indoor kitties might just see the mouse as a toy, and grow quickly bored of it after scaring it half witless.
Shelters and adoption agencies often do not know if a cat is a good mouse hunter, and generally do not test for this. Sometimes this information is available, but usually not.
While many mousers are great pets as well, not all are. “Barn cats” may not be socialized well with humans, although used to hunting mice for food.
Even if you do not have a cat, you can use used kitty litter to deter mice. Place tubs of used kitty litter around entrances of the house. The mice will sniff the smell of cat urine and clear off in a jiffy.
If you have a large infestation, a cat may not be enough to totally get rid of it. However, once you eliminate the infestation, a cat will probably prevent reinfestation.[5]

Put your trash cans far from your home. Mice smell garbage and get attracted to your house. If you keep the cans away from the house, they are less likely to take up residence in your home.

Promote the nesting of birds of prey in your yard. Build a shelter box in your garden to attract some onto your property. This may take some time, but it’s worth the effort if you can attract a wild mouse eater to your yard.
Make sure the shelter box has no nails or safety hazards.
A barn owl is the best. A family of barn owls can eat many mice in a night! However, you might attract other types of owls or birds of prey with your nesting box.
