Default Blackheads

What do you do to get rid of blackheads? I've won my battle with acne (don't ask how, because I haven't a clue!) but the blackheads are still a problem.

I've tried homemade pore strips, and they didn't pull any junk out of my pores. They just pulled out all of the tiny hairs from my nose & chin!

Aspirin masks and OCM are my regimen right now, and it is too soon to say if they're making a difference. I'm looking for more ideas

Try this it really works I have had such good results and I have had a long battle with blackheads this product is really the best one I've used much better than pore strips where the blackheads all come back the next day

Good Luck

Exfoliating with BHA liquid a couple of times per week worked pretty well for me, got rid of most of my blackheads. I used Paula's Choice BHA liquid.

Didn't help the zits or whiteheads, though!

When I get a few blackheads on my nose, I mix up an egg white with a tablespoon of honey, slap it on, and wait for it to dry. Then I rinse it off with warm water, and the little ones are all gone, and the big ones are pulled to the surface for easier extracting.

Although, if your blackheads are severe, this may not work as well.

I'm going to go try that egg white thing. The blackheads on my nose aren't big, they're just a ton of them, and they won't go away.

Oooh, the egg white recipe does look good! I may have to give that a try too! I've used biore pore strips before and I just don't know about them. They just rip off the hairs on my nose but the pores stay plugged.

If you are willing to spend the money, microdermabrasion is suppose to really help with large pores and blackheads. I havent tried this myself but I have heard from others that it has.
I also had a friend who suffered from severe acne, and she tried all sorts of medicines but nothing helped. She started seeing an esthetician (or something like that) at least once a month who would do extractions on her whole face, and after a few months her skin looked wonderful, including having less blackheads and smaller pores. However, she will have to continue to do this for a long time to keep her skin nice. When she stops going, the acne comes back.

Don't know yet, Ama. My skin feels nice, but I do still have blackheads there. I'll try it a few times before giving my verdict
