Wink Advice needed - please

I'm wondering what is the best ingredient or product to use to keep pores clear. I have a problem with blackheads on my nose and chin, and I don't know why. I wash properly, don't wear tons of makeup and on and on. If I push the blackheads out, I makes pimples.
I've tried using Neo Strata AHA lotion - 8% glycolic acid - and it didn't seem to do much more than a regular skin lotion. I'm thinking of seeing what my doctor could recommend or prescribe for a topical treatment. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

For pores, try using products with salicylic acid (BHA)in them. Good luck!

No one? Nobody has had a good experience with reducing blackheads, or least keeping them a bay?

Phisoderm for acne has been keeping my nose free of blackheads.

I suggest Queen Helen's Mint Julep masque. Makes my skin feel good.

I'd give Biore pore cleaning strips a try. Use them about once a week or so.

Perhaps you should talk to your doctor or get a referral to a dermatologist. A product like Retin-A or Differin which increase cell turnover may help you. I have never had a problem with blackheads so I am no expert by any means, I just think a derm would be able to provide you with prescription products that will work better than anything you can buy over the counter.
