No One Knows How To Get Rid Of Them?

I am going insane.. this is pathetic. No one can give me a good reason on how to get rid of blackheads? They are literally taking over my face, and I am going crazy.. my acne is not bad, my face is mostly smooth. I am happy about that, no doubt, but with these things all over the damn place my face still doesnt look very good. HELP!

Talking Re: No One Knows How To Get Rid Of Them?

I have mild/moderate acne and was prescribed Retin-A Micro. My derm told me that it would help clean out my pores. Within a few months my blackheads/whiteheads have cleared up and my pores have shrunk considerably. I think that is a pretty commmn effect that Retin-A Micro has on blacks. Hope that helps.

I wouldnt suggest retin a micro for blackheads. I have been using it for a while and it dosnt do much for blackheads. At least for me anyway. I would suggest buying an exfolitaing scrub or maybe a clay mask to use daily. If the blackheads are really bad then I would look into low doses of accutane possibly.
