Ok, this is going to sound nuts, but I swear it works.
Oil cleansing - using oil to dissolve oil. I scrub my face gently with a DRY washcloth, then apply a handful of olive oil + a dollop of castor oil allllll over. Forehead, T-Zone, chin, cheeks, neck - the whole schmear. I gently rub it in and let it "sit" for a minute. Then I take my dry washcloth and place it over my face and gently wipe up all the oil.
My face looks refreshed and plumped - I'll be 41 next month and my skin has never looked better (although I will admit I never suffered from really bad acne). But blackheads? This method just seems to FLOAT them away.
And cheap - don't forget that - I'm all about the cheap.
