how to treat
If you have blackheads, your go-to ingredient should be salicylic acid.
Helps the skin shed dead cells from the top layer and decreases inflammation. This decreases the number of blackheads and blemishes that form and speeds healing.
Removes make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from the skin, helping to keep pores clear and prevent acne and blackheads.
Cleanse twice a day (AM & PM) with lukewarm water, then pat dry with a soft towel.
Reduces the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne and blackheads.
The rule of thumb is to start with the thinnest consistency products and work your way up to the heaviest. Serums go on first, followed by oils, then creams. The one exception is sunscreen, which should be applied last.
