Let's face it, no one's skin is perfect all the time.

Thanks to hormones, stress, environmental pollutants, and about a million other things, our skin just can't take it sometimes. Repeated exposure to all those things can result in blackheads -- those gross, dark-colored bumps that are really clogged pores.

But if you find your skin is having a blackhead issue, never fear. You can get rid of them almost instantly without damaging your skin or spending a ton of money on pricey beauty products.

Instead, try our this simple recipe for DIY blackhead removing strips. It uses just two ingredients and it's safe for all skin types. After all, there's no need to shell out money on expensive skin care items when you can make them at home, like these all-natural moisturizers.

A few things to keep in mind if you're going to try this: First, when you take the mixture out of the microwave, test it on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot before applying it to your face.

Second, don't use this is you have any cuts or actual pimples on your face, as these can irritate those more.

Try it out for yourself and let us know how it worked in the comments below!
