    Anyone know an effective way to get rid of blackheads? The deep set ones that look more like freckles.

    You can buy blackhead removers but they're quite painful. You could get a good exfoliator and see if you can bring them to the surface a little more, and maybe a scrubbing mit. You could treat yourself to a facial at a spa too

    Exfoliate your skin with lemon juice and sugar and do it once a week. Mix the lemon juice and sugar until you form a paste. Scrub it your clean face concentrate on the blackheads, but remember to use a very light touch. Too rough, and you could damage your skin. Do this for 3-5 minutes. Rinse well. Enjoy your clean face.

    I've heard these do more damage than good as they are too harsh on the skin

    I don't find that exfoliating particularly helps because they don't protrude on the surface of the skin

    If they're around the nose I strongly recommend blackhead strips (Bioré not any other cheap brands!). If not use La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (its on sale at feelunique and on escentual) and it really cleans out your pores - contains salicylic acid and exfoliates the skin to prevent future buildup blocking pores! Really helped my skin - don't have any blackheads now! Just use it twice a day after cleansing. Also what do you wash your face with? Use a scrub or exfoliator eg (St Ives Scrub) - but don't scrub too much because that can leave you with broken capillaries!
