Blackheads are caused by excess oil and dead skin cells blocking the pores. Eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest and exercise, keeping your face clean and avoiding oil-based products all help to prevent blackheads. You also can use herbs to combat the condition.

  • Take herbs that improve the body's elimination of consume products through ways other than the skin. Dandelion leaf helps the body to eliminate consume through the kidneys. Dandelion root aids the liver and elimination through the bowels.
  • Taking heartsease, which is also known as viola tricolour. This herb is high in zinc, which promotes healthy skin. It is also high in flavonoids which nourishes the blood and improves circulation to the area where the blackheads happen to help clear them.
  • Try gotu kola. This herb is beneficial for clearing blackheads because of its water pill, laxative and antibiotic properties.
  • Crush fenugreek leaves and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply the paste to your face every night before bedtime. Leave the paste on your face for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it off w/ warm water. Continue using the paste nightly until blackheads are gone. If you are prone to blackheads, keep using the paste after you have gotten rid of the blackheads to prevent them from reoccurring.
  • Buy a liquid astringent herb blend, sold specifically for getting rid of blackheads and other acne. Apply the herbal astringent to your face daily using a saturated cotton ball. Most astringent herb blends include a combination of witch hazel, horsetail, plantain, agrimony or shepherd's purse.
