Lemon mask with honey
There isn’t anything that lemon can’t do. Take a dollop of honey and mix with some lime juice. Now, apply and let it sit on your face for 15 minutes. After it dries, wash it off with warm water and repeat 3-4 times a week for the best results.
Lemon baking soda mask!
Baking soda works as a natural exfoliator, even for stubborn blackheads. So, mix a tablespoon of baking soda with half a tablespoon of lime juice. Rinse and repeat to say goodbye to blackheads.
Egg white mask? Yes, please!
