Common beauty problems are what drives the beauty industry. Buy this, wear that, eat this, use that. Suddenly your cupboards are full to the brim with items you’re not using, that aren’t working, and you wasted all your hard earned money on. However, more recently, many are tossing the lab produced beauty remedies, and swapping them out for traditional at-home remedies.

The kitchen is your lab. You have all the ingredients to make delicious muffins and chicken marinades and garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli soup AND the kitchen remedies to solve all sorts of beauty issues. Your pantry is even likely stocked with solutions to issues many deal with on a daily basis and you don’t even know it! So why not explore some super DIY ways to solve your beauty mishaps? Let’s get cooking…

1. Blackheads

Blackheads, or small clogs in our pores, are so incredibly common. They form because of a buildup of dirt and dead skin cells, and excess sebum (oil). Our faces, mainly our noses, are the most common area for blackheads, but they can occur anywhere where there’s pores. Sometimes cosmetics, stress, or genetics can cause them, but thankfully there are some remedies that can treat blackheads right at home.

Baking soda is a natural abrasive that isn’t harmful to skin surfaces. Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a splash of water to make a paste and apply to the area you’re treating, and then rinse after a few minutes. Repeat this 1 to 2 times per week. Another natural blackhead buster is cinnamon! Simply take 1 teaspoon of cinnamon mixed with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, mix into a paste and apply to the area. Wait 10 to 15 minutes and rinse away.
