You could opt for a short term or long term solution when fighting the scourge of the blackheads. The short term solution would be to use medically approved, blackhead removal strips from the market. These need to be applied to the infected area and then peeled off. It will remove about 60% of the blackheads on your face. The most common areas for its application is the T-zone - the forehead and the nose.

But this will not prevent blackheads from occurring again. In fact it will be a drain on the pocket. Instead you could invest your money into a good facial. This will open up the pores. After this the most stubborn blackheads can be removed. But maintenance after facial is very important. This means using a good face wash, exfoliating gel, consuming lots of water and getting regular sleep. Black heads could break out if an individual is under too much stress.

Wash with mild soap or wipe with a treated tissue, either or both methods frequently. Get more than your normal exposure to moderate sunshine, with sun block as needed. Expressly drink double your normal consumption of water..good tap water will fill the bill.
The only other time tested method is to gently age for two or three years all while eating plenty of fresh fruits and grains. If physically
advisable get into a regular exercise mode, may be just fast walking for twenty minutes every day. Preserve & get into a routine! Take a energy drink & call me in the morning.

I used to have blackheads. I use Neutrogenia Naturals face scrub and cleasner, and clinique dramatically different mostrizing lotion everyday. Twice a week I use Biore deep cleansing pore strips. Once every weekend I use Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. After about two weeks doing all of this, my blackheads were gone, and my face is clear!

Hello! Pimples, acne and blackheads are common problems faced by almost everybody. They can pop up irrespective of age. There are many factors contributing to the growth of these spots. The major factor is diet. Diet affects your kidneys. These organs are crucial in eliminating. The skin is another organ which eliminates toxins. Sweat contains wastes so you need to shower after your exercise. Oils secreted also contribute to clogged pores which give the problem of pimples, acne and blackheads. Use a scrub like a cleanser and sponge to clean your skin.

To help get rid of blackhead on face, you can try to take some turmeric. It helps get rid of acne safely and eliminate bruises, scarring acne. All you need to do is to mix some mint juice with turmeric to create a mixture. Apply it on your blackheads and leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. Using the treatment regularly will help you greatly remove blackheads.

Hi
Anish! The best treatment is to steam you face regularly! Bring water to the
boil and have your head in the vapour with a towel on top. It will burn, but
hold on for about 10 minutes. This will open your pores and it will then be
easy for you to use a comedone stick to remove all the blackheads. All the
best!

Aside from the good tip of using pore strips, a cheaper but VERY effective way is with Elmer's glue. Lather it on your problem areas and let dry, peel off like a face mask. I tried it and it works!

Use Clearasil every day and a moisturiser that contains hydrocortisone and these should get rid of blackheads.
