Re: Black Heads?

hey there k well i could say get a nose strip that is meant 2 get rid of black heads but they actually cause them to come bak coz it leaves you pores open! soooo what you need to do is get an exfoliant you exfoliat the areas hat black heads are like 3 times a week but dont over do it coz you can cause pimples and irritate your skin sooo get a gentle exfoliant and doit like 1 nite then not for another 2 nites then again then another 2 nites then again etc this will bring out the black heads and if you just keep doing this (which willbecome less often ) it will keep your pores clean!!! if you wanna know of some good exfoliants let me know k! hope that helped

Re: Black Heads?

I had black heads all over my t-zone since I was 20 years old, Now I'm 40 years old. it's gone for the last 6 mos..these are the things that i did:

1. Have a proper skin regimen - be sure you're using the right products for you...cleanser, toner, moisturizer (day/nite) I recommend cetaphil/neutrogena/almay products or if you have extra budget..go for mario badescu at nordstroms

2. Have a monthly facial ($ 50-80) per visit for maintenance - pls go to esthetician that performs extraction otherwise you're wasting money.

3. Eat healthy/get enough sleep

4. Drink lots of water

5. Dont touch your face except when washing it.

Hope this would help you even tiny bit...good luck!

Re: Black Heads?

Try the aspirin mask. It works well if your blackheads are not too deep
