What is your fool proof method of eradicating blackheads? I'm addicted to those extraction strips that you put over your nose and then pull off when dry. I've seen some DIY methods and wonder if anyone has tried them and or what you thought? Please comment below! Also I'd love to up my friend list and would welcome any requests!

I just got some pore strips and love them! I've also heard of people going the gelatin and milk peel mask, and I really want to try it!

I like charcoal pore strips and benzoyl peroxide cream.

I've stopped using pore strips after reading that they can cause permanent damage to the capillaries and let spider veins appear with prolonged use. I exfoliate regularly and use a mixture of apple cider vinegar diluted with water as a toner before bed. Don't worry, you won't smell like a salad the next morning. :)

This article helped me! I exfoliate with my Mia and use Retin-A in the evening. I have a dermatologist and she has helped me contain my blackheads

l stopped using pore strips because of the harm they can cause, it is satisfying to see the initial result but it does not last. My sensitive skin also does not enjoy having things peeled off of it lol. I stick to a few good quality scrubs that are designed for pores and such. This, in combination with a a mask with a small amount of saliclyc acid I feel keeps them small, and my pores overall tight.
I have made peace with the face that I will probably always have a few flaws on my face, unless I end up with the money to have a personal facialist or something HA!

I actually just tried the Biore baking soda products and the scrub seems to be doing a pretty good job so far! I use the pore strips once every two weeks but now I don't know if I will, reading other comments about them. Blackheads are such a burden
