I have a few blackheads, not noticable but i kno they are there.
Anyone got tips on what to use to get rid of them? pleaseBlackheads ??? Uuughhhh. =[?
Step 1 - Cleanse the face thoroughly with a good cleanser meant for oily skin. Preferrably use a salicylic acid cleanser such as this one, Joey NY Pure Pores Cleansing Gel to get rid of blackheads
Step 2 - Apply an astringent. It helps reduce oiliness. If its a bit harsh mix a bit of rose water in it. You can find some good astringents at Greatskin.com ( Just type ';astringent'; in the search product box).
Step 3 - Apply a good quality medicated cream or gel containing resorcinol, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This helps is soaking the oil and helps in peeling away the blackheads. You can get creams or gels of Benzoyl Peroxide treating blackheads If benzoyl peroxide leaves your skin dry, apply an oil-free moisturizer after 10 mins of applying benzoyl peroxide.
鈥xfoliate the blackhead prone area 3-4 times a week using facial exfoliators and scrubs. Here is a good SCRUB for you to help you to get rid of blackheads
鈥se creams containing AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Fruit acids) like glyco-creams that will clear away any dead skin cells and ';expose'; the blackhead. Use the AHA's every 3 days or so.
鈥eep your hair away from your face. Greasy hair and skin go together, and hair can spread infection
鈥unshine or ultra-violet light encourages skin peeling, and so helps to clear blocked pores. So sunbathing or use of sun-beds in moderation can be helpful.
鈥void washing the face with soaps more than twice a day. Instead wash your face often with plain water splashes.
鈥ften use a mask with a clay base such as ZIRH's Clay MaskBlackheads ??? Uuughhhh. =[?
You can do it the old fashioned way and boil a kettle poor it into a big sauce pan and put your head over it with a towel over your head. It works like a sauna and brings all nasty pores to the surface.
Or you can try pore strips. You can buy them from most pharmacies or boots/superdrug sell them. You place them on your nose (most common place for blackheads) leave it on for 5 mins then pull it off! Always works!
Hope this helped.
try clean and clear blackhead cleanser 2 times a day . morning and night . aply on a catton bal and then aply it on your whole face and nek . no need to rinse of with water after it is aplied. its really good . i got myn from boots and its 2.4 pounds http://www.boots.com/webapp/wcs/stores/s鈥?/a>

I used a clay mask today.
I noticed quite an improvement.
It was called mudd, i think..
Yeah, blackhead strips don't work.
Neither have any scrubs i've tried, if you do use a scrub, steam your face with a bowl of boiling water to open your pores first, then use the scrub as it will cleanse deeper and be more effective.
Hmmm...nope! No matter WHAT people tell you, it's impossible to get rid of them.
THere's temporary things , such as using biore strips, but they'll just come back - you'll have them for the rest of your life so just get used to.
just exfolate that really helps NEVER use blackheads removal strips coz they pull ur skin and will make ur pores look huggeee the best method is to exfoliate so just get ur regular face scrub or even soap and jus scrub ur blackheads in a circular motion with ur fingers do this for about 30 seconds everytime u wash ur face and they will dissapear
Try Neutrogena 'No blackheads'. I must admit, I've never used it myself but some friends have used it and they say it works wonders.
Good luck :)
