Wash your face with cool water at least twice a day with a mild face scrub. This takes away the excess oil to prevent whiteheads from coming back.

You can just steam your face over boiling water for ten minutes. This will loosen up the stubborn fat deposits and opens up pores. After taking steaming, gently push the whiteheads out of the pore. But remember not to force hard it can cause scars or broken veins.

You can use a clay mask. You can also baking soda and water. Apply it all over your face and wait it to dry. Then, wash it off with warm water.

Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. If you stay hydrated your skin will have a much lesser tendency to break out into pimples because water detoxes your body.

Rub gently lemon juice on your face with a cotton ball. Lemon juice dries excess oil which causes whiteheads. The citric acid content in lemon also helps dissolve excess oil on the skin.

Apple cider vinegar helps. For best results apply vinegar on the affected area immediately after steaming. Don’t rinse, let the skin just absorb.

Honey contains antibacterial properties. It helps to remove blackheads and whiteheads. Apply honey directly on problem areas after cleansing the skin. Leave it on for ten minutes before rinsing it off with cool water.
