Help! How can I get rid of blackheads on my face?

Sent in by Rachel H, on 28-Sep-2011, under Beauty.


Unfortunately there really isn't a simple solution for blackheads. It is a hereditary skin condition, so the only thing you can do is to get them extracted by a dermatologist. They will come back in a short time, because they grow like hair. No cream that I know works on removing them completely. Some creams that have salicylic acid can help reduce the appearance of blackheads. There are some laser treatments you can do but they are expensive and also not a permanent solution. Ask you dermatologist what can help.
