Can anyone tell me an efficient way to remove blackheads once and for all?
A month ago, I was on a beach exposing myself to a nice tan and occasionally bathing in sea salt water. A few days passed and my face was ACNE free. My blackheads on my nose were removed.
After the holidays, I came came back to my urban lifestyle in the city and realised the the blackheads on my nose were coming back.
After having read quite a few articles (notably: http://www.acne-advice.com/treatments/blackheads.shtml
) and posts on this forum, I found out a few facts.
- Blackhead pore strips are only temporary. They will remove blackheads instantly (supposedly), but will not cure them entirely
- Using blackhead removal tools, such as comedone extractors, can only damage skin and cause more blackhead breakouts
- Using skin products depend on skin type, etc
- Drink a lot of water to for healthy skin
More or less, Ive tried several skin products, and blackheads are still there. I even tried a comedon extractor and found it useful at first, until blackheads started appearing. I thought that if I continue this routine, I would just end up with scars.
I'd like to note that I think I have oily skin. Regards,
