      How do you get rid of them? I've tried many products... and it hasn't gone. Any tips?

      I found if I steam my face first then clean with a good blackhead cleaner helps
      Also stop wearing makeup for a while as this can make them worse

      What are the treatment options for blackheads

      Hormonal treatments

      - contraceptives have often been used for the treatment of blackheads and acne, often with good results.

      Cleaning the skin

      - clean your face with a good cleanser, ideally, one for oily skin, such as a salicylic acid cleanser.


      - adapalene is a third-generation topical retinoid, used mainly in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. Many patients with blackheads have had good results. In the USA adapalene is available under brand name

      , in three preparations - 0.1% cream, 0.1% gel, and 0.3% gel. Since 2010, it has also been available in the USA under the generic name Teva, (0.1% gel). Only the 0.1% cream and 0.1% gel forms are available in Europe.

      UV exposure

      - exposing the skin to sunlight or ultra-violet light encourages it to peel, which helps unblock pores. Sunbathing or using sunbeds may help. However, it is important to discuss this with your doctor. Exposing skin to sunlight, if overdone, also raises the risk of burning and developing cancer of the skin.



      - greasy hair touching the face of your skin can spread infection and in some cases encourage the spread of blackheads and acne. Keeping your hair away from your face may help keep blackheads to a minimum.
