What do you do with whiteheads on your face?

I'm noticing lately a few whiteheads are appearing on my face, mainly on my forehead. Tips or ideas how to deal with or treat them? Thanks!

  • I USE PROACTIV SOLUTION . I USE IT EVERY NIGHT ALL OVER MY FACE. IF I HAPPEN TO HAVE A WHITEHEAD IT'S USUALLY GONE IN THE MORNING AFTER USING PROACTIV. IT WORKS GREAT!

  • Proactiv really works? How much is it....for how long does it last? Do you order it online?

    I have always wondered if it worked!

  • Proactiv works for some people but doesn't work for others. It all depends on the pH balance of your face. For instance, it didn't help my boyfriend at all, but it helped me BUT dried my face out horribly.

    It's about $40 every time you get the kit. My boyfriend canceled his subscription because it wasn't working : /

    I've wondered about SkinID, it's a more personalized skincare regimen xD

  • proactive is wonderful.
    i pop them but make sure to cleanse the area with some acne med right after or it just makes it worse. if you cnt afford proactive (40) their ar eother 3 step formula's very similar in drugstores now

  • You can get stuff at Wal*Mart with the same active ingredients as Proactive. I recommend using a mild balancing cleanser (Aveeno?) and following up with a benzoyl peroxide topical spot treatment (Neutrogena?)

  • My kids use AcneFree. You can get it at Wal-Mart for twenty bucks - it works like proactive but you don't have to enter into a contract or wait for it the mail - and it is cheaper. They like it a lot and it doesn't dry out their skin. The kit comes with moisturizer and lasts a month.

  • I squeeze mine when I see them. My best friend gets bad break outs, I know that she uses proactive and it works. It also bleaches out her wash rags she uses with it :- \

  • You guys should check out the new dermatological line on the market by the makers of ProActiv...it's called Unblemish and it's fantastic!!!! It's cheaper than ProActiv and uses sulfur to deep cleanse your pores--no more whiteheads!!! Check it out online at: http://jamieg.myrandf.com/ Contact me if you have any questions or want any more info. :-)
