As a teen and young adult my skin was flawless but now I am 36 I have enlarged pores and whiteheads all over my face especially in the TZone. I have tried all of the products out there with no success. I pick at my face constantly and it leaves red marks but after they heal my skin is liveable for the next 2 days but then, whiteheads again.

I beleive the solution would be taking something internally but don't know what.

Anyone else have this problem and what do I do?

Re: Whiteheads

Hi pugdog, I have the same problem on the right side of my cheek. I never had any skin problems before except the occasional blemish. All of a sudden I have noticed a "rash" of whiteheads, just on the right side. I faithfully cleanse my face every morning and every night, and I don't wear makeup every day since I am retired. Interesting to find your post, because I have wondered myself how to get rid of them, other than picking and prodding! All of the market products seem to deal with blackheads, not what we are seeking.

Unfortunately I don't have an answer, but if you come up with something, please let me know.

Re: Whiteheads

Sorry if im bumping and old thread but it could be your weakened ability to metabolize fats, and the oil is being released through your pores. Honestly, try drinking a ton of green tea, it helps your metabolism. If worst comes to worst, you will have to try pantethine, it's safe, just dont overdose. Research it

Re: Whiteheads

Thanks, bulldog, I just started to drink green tea. I will research the panthetine as I am not sure what that is. Darn whiteheads seem to appear in just one spot in my cheek other place on my face at all.

Thanks for the info.
