    Blackheads

    Advertisements
    What do you use to get rid of them and keep them away?

    DB has like the worst acne and blackheads, especially on his back. I want to get him something to get rid of them, but I don't know where to start.

    TIA!

    For years I've suffered with blackheads. Even gone to a dermatologist for them. I use Rx face wash and cream and get chemical peels- and I STILL have blackheads. I can never get rid of them.

    So if you find something please let me know!!

    I have blackheads as well...mostly on my nose.
    I've tried the strips from the drugstore and they seem to work for me.
    But, of course, it's a temporary fix, nothing permanent!

    I used to go to aesthetician and get a procedure called "extraction facial".
    they pretty much pick and squeeze every pore of impurities.
    It hurts like hell but it really works!!!

    LOL it is very painful. My session was either 30 min or an hour
    They used to give me a squeeze ball to help me endure the pain

    I use a lemon on my face once a month. It mainly takes off my dry skin but it also seems to keep my blackheads at bay. I also use neutrogena natural face wash which is amazing. The acid from a lemon may possibly dry out his acne? Might be worth a shot...I'm not too knowledgeable on what to actually use though.

    Do you know how much a back facial would cost?

    I kind of think he would not like anyone else touching his skin, or even seeing him with a shirt off, KWIM? So I'm not sure having a professional do something would be something he would want to do. I wish there were for sure home remedies!

    Hmmm lemon, I've never heard of that one. He does use tea tree oil a few times a week on his face, but it doesn't seem to help all that much. and he won't stop picking! I know it gets worse because he is picking though.
