White pores look like whiskers???

I hope I'm posting in the right place. I have been having a problem with my "pores" for the past 6 months. My skin has always been clear and everyone says I have a great complexion. However in every pore on my face, I see a super tiny white speck. They're not whiteheads. If I take a tweezers and pull at the "speck", it almost looks like a white whisker?? I cannot get them out unless I use a tweezers! Scrubs and facial cleansers don't help at all. Does anyone know what this could be. I have to say at a glance, you can't really notice it, but if you look closely, you can. HELP!!

What you are seeing are skin cells etc in your pores called comedones , they are normal esp as you age. That's why people have facials, the facialists extract the comedones.

I recently purchased Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub and have been using it for a few days. I already notice an improvement in my skin!
