  • after scrubbing, use a toner to help shrink the pores.

  • I have a skin tool. It cost a dollar. It is awesome. Got it at Wal-Mart by the file and clippers and fake nails.

  • Blackheads are caused by the dirt being trapped in the pores, so start with a very warm wash rag and steam open those pores! Use a a good foaming cleaners to help get that stuff out. Those nose strips work great and anything with salicylic acid will help to keep them at bay. I used to make a scrub in my coffee grinder using oatmeal and dried orange peel, put some in the palm of your hand and add a little bit of water to make a paste and scrub with it. It worked great!

  • You might want to change your skin cleanser to start with. Some ingredients are irritating to your skin. Try something with an exfolliant. It should help, but don't scrub too harshly. When I was a teenager, I rinsed with water as warm as I could stand it, and followed it with cold water to close my pores. It helped. Don't forget an astringent.

  • Use a good quality mud mask to detoxify & shrink your pores.
