Default Bye-Bye to Blackheads?

I have problems with constant blackheads on my chin and forehead. Is there a way to get rid of these and stop them from coming back? Maybe a certain scrub? I was just on the OCM and that didn't get rid of them. IS there maybe a certain facila that can or something a dermatologist can do without putting me on any kind of medication? Thanks! ~~jax

I have had success using two products that I was already using, but I switched up the order in which I use them. The guy (yes, guy) at the Clinique counter told me to use the emergency mask first then use a scrub, such as the 7-day scrub. The mask brings all the gunk up to the surface and the scrub cleans it away. I did this twice, a couple days apart, and my blackheads got much better right away.

This goes without saying, but wash your face before using the mask.

get monthly facials that include extractions and use a gentle scrub, like a baking soda mix, every second day.

Is there a specific name that I can use in reference to this facial? So that people will know what I am talking about? Thanks so much for the responses! ~~jax

look for "deep-cleaning". some places offer "teen" facials that specialize in extractions.

Do you know of how to use the baking soda mix? I'm assuming it's something made from the baking soda we put in the fridge right?

yes, that's the stuff.

just add a half teaspoon to your cleanser, or mix a teaspoon with warm water to a paste consistency in your hand and rub in gently in a circular motion.

I'm getting a facial this evening!!!

Around the change of seasons my skin/pores always just gets all blocked up. A facial and the Spring and Fall seems to help me quite a bit.
