  • blackheads are dirt oil & dead skin clogged in your pores, there really is no "instant" fix to getting rid of them u do need to create a cleansing routine that includes exfoliation to rid your skin of excess oil and dead skin which gets into your pores, clogs them. that is a "blackhead". a facial would help more than the clean & clear product. good luck! & happy bday!

  • i use a mint mud masque and them a gape seed oil peel off mask. Works pretty well. (family dollar for $2 a peice) they are kind of fun to do too. You could also try those strip things by biore

  • I love the biore strips! Do things the old fashion way and squeeze it. I had a horrible black right on the outside of my nostral in that lil crack part where it turns into the cheek and I tried the strips and they couldn't get it and I had a facial didn't get it and so I got home and started to squeeze it and I got it, it hurt like hell but I got it lol

  • i always take a bath cloth that is heated in the hottest water i could stand hold it over the black head and melt it away. it will not instantly be gone but it does not leave a scar.

  • I found an incredible skin care line from Rodan+Fields Dermatologists called Unblemish...it' contains sulfur so it purges your pores--clears your skin and also gets rid of blackheads!! It also reduces pore size. It's done amazing things for my skin! I'd love to share more info. if it's something you'd like to try. You can check it out at:

  • Beachmom is right. You need a skin system!! I also use those pore strips. I know they only come in some shapes but I cut them and put them where ever they're needed. LOL
