I like the pore strips too, but find they really dry me out even with moisturizer and don’t get all the nook and carnies. Micro scrubs are really good though. Recently I’ve been more into natural products. I’ve been using baking soda for almost 2 months now and not only has my blackhead number gone down but acne scaring is going away too. Just make sure to moisturize afterworlds. Sometimes I even mix in a little natural honey as a natural moisturizer.posted almost 8 years ago
Yeah! You want to make sort of a paste, and be veeerrry gentle because it’s rather gritty. Just scrub, rinse, and dry!

There is a recipe i use to get rid of blackheads and it does work: Use 1/4 cup of hot water, 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt, and three drops of Iodine. Mix this all together and dip a Q-Tip in the stuff and then dab it on the blackhead. it might take a day or two for it to loosen up but trust me it will come out!posted almost 8 years ago
boil hot water and then pour it into a bowl and grab a towel put over your head lean over the bowel so that the steam from the hot water opens up your pores for 3-5 mins. then grab 2 tissues and role them up on ur index finger and start poping ur blackheads. afterwards u can use biore pores or beyond belief clean pore nose peel they sell them at sally’s beautyposted almost 8 years ago

I used to swear by Biore Pore Strips, but then I got my nose pierced and it’s a bit of a hassle to deal with them :(posted almost 8 years ago
I think using a cleanser with microbeads is a start. It’ll help exfoliate your skin and keep black heads from forming. I’ve used cleansers from Shiseido, Clinique, Lancome, etc. to regular brands. I think the best for it’s price is Neutrogena’s new pink grapefruit face wash. It’s cheap and does the job. Also, use a toner and moisturizer! The salicylic acid can dry your skin.
The Biore strips are a plus, but you have to keep doing it. =] Hope that helps.posted almost 8 years ago
Funny you should mention the Neutrogena Grapefruit face wash because that’s the same one I use! Another really good one is the Biore warming blackhead cleanser, when you rub it into your wet face it gets warm which is supposed to open up your pores and it also has microbeads in it to slough away dead skin. I like to follow it up with Biore alcohol toner (not for those with sensitive skin) and of course, sunscreen!posted almost 8 years ago
I love it! I think it’s the best thing since it seems consistent with keeping my face clear. =] And it’s not expensive, which is even better! I follow up with the Neutrogena toner since I have super sensitive skin. I used stuff with benzoyl peroxide and ended up looking like a tomato. Allll bad.posted almost 8 years ago
