I have very very pale skin with a good amount of redness. My pores have always been large, therefore I have noticeable blackheads. More recently, I have been having a big problem with whiteheads. They are especially visible when my makeup is completely done. They don’t have heads, but the bumps are visible! Of course, when I squeeze them, the junk will come out but I don’t want to damage my skin. My question is are there any reasonably priced products out there that actually work to remove the black/white head or the junk in them? Any advice?
Thanks in advance!
Get a blemish extractor; it’s a double-ended tool for this sort of thing. One side is flat for blackheads; the other end is a bit more rounded for whiteheads. Blemish extractors are not very expensive.
If worse comes to worst, you can go to a dermatologist to get them extracted professionally.
get a cleanser with salicylic acid in it, neutrogena is always amazing. and just a random thing im dying to share: use lemon juice as a toner!!! mix it about half and half with water and put it on your face with a cotton ball. it evens out the skin tone like a you wouldn’t beleive!! and its really easy and cheap also, dont forget to moisturize because the black heads could be from dry skin getting in the pores (but of course you’ll want to keep the moisturizer oil free)
I know this is pricey…but I love my Clarisonic Mia 2 for this exact problem. I use the acne brush head with some 2% salicylic acid face wash and it definitely helps with the whiteheads.
And for blackheads I’ve been using Biore strips for years and I still love them.
Try the Neutrogena Deep Clean face wash. I had blackheads and whiteheads but within two three days of using this face wash they were starting to disappear! It makes my skin feel really clean and fresh. I have tried many facial cleansers and this the one that has actually worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you too!
I have fair and somewhat sensitive skin and I love Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash. I’ve been using it for years and it has helped clear up my acne without ever once irritating my skin, and I know they have a formula that’s supposed to help soothe redness.
