Cure for Blackheads : The best products for removing Blackheads

I believe you have read through my post on how to get rid of blackheads on nose : a simple 5 step method that you can integrate into your beauty care schedule to keep blackheads at bay.
If you haven't already, I suggest you go through it once : Get rid of blackheads on the nose.

Now, you have seen many products mentioned in the posts in this blog. Pore Strips, Clay masks, Blackhead Extractors, Scrubs, just to name a few.
The real test is choosing a cure for blackheads that is best for you. People have different skin types, different sensitivities of skin, and different inclinations towards beauty products in general, based on their lifestyles.

You will no doubt be overwhelmed by the sheer number of beauty care products available in the market today. The case is no different for blackhead removing products either.
In this post, I will try to summarize all the kinds of products mentioned in this blog, and recommend the ones that people find most effective. So, without further ado, let us begin :

Clay Masks
Using a mask is a highly effective part of the blackhead removal process. The procedure is highly simplified if you apply a clay mask prior to applying pore strips or extractor tools. Simply mix the clay with rose water and make into a thick paste. Apply this mask on your cleansed face and wash it off after it dries.
The clay mask cleanses your pores and brings out the blackheads, thus making it easier to remove the blackhead using pore strips or blackhead remover tools. It even removes most of the blackheads in the process.

These clay mask products come highly recommended :

Top Pick : Pure Biology Clay Face Mask
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Dead Sea Mud Mask for Face & Body
Amara Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask for Face & Body
Molivera Organics Bentonite Clay for Detoxifying and Rejuvenating Skin and Hair
Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
L'Oreal Paris Skin Care Pure Clay Mask Set

Pore Strips
When it comes to pore strips, there simply is no substitute for Biore products.
Biore is a household name for anyone who has ever had to use a pore strip. Biore markets products for general application on the face, and special nose strips for dealing with blackheads on the nose.

Top Pick : Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips Combo Pack
Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Charcoal Strips
Purederm Nose Pore 24 Strips

A Peel-off Mask can also be highly effective in getting the blackheads off your skin. Check out the following product if you are interesting in this approach. (It is a strong mask though - be warned!) MEINAIER Blackhead Remover Mask

Blackhead Remover Tool
Blackhead remover tools are simple to use tools that you can use to remove blackheads by yourself. They resemble a tweezer with hooks at either ends. You can use them to squeeze out the blackheads safely without leaving a scar.
Many well known brands have put out good quality blackhead removers, most of them are good but you will be better off choosing one that has a design best suited for you. For instance, many people find that blackhead removers with an angled design are easier to use than the straight ones. Also, make sure you go for a product with two hooks, as these can be used to extract blackheads of different sizes.

Top Pick : JPNK Blackhead Remover Tools Kits
BESTOPE Blackhead Remover Pimple Comedone Extractor Tool
Professional Blackhead & Splinter Remover Tools
Blackhead Remover Acne Tool 9PCS Kit
Hollyson Blackhead Remover Tool and Comedone Extractor, Zit Popper, Pimple Extractor Tools

Blackhead Scrubs / Cleansers
Blackhead scrubs and Cleansers are probably the easiest to use, but they are somewhat less effective than pore strips or dedicated blackhead remover tools. They have the added advantage that they can be used on blackheads appearing in hard to reach areas, which are out of the question when it comes to pore strips or extractors.
Some of the recommended products that fall under this category are :

Top Pick : Activated Charcoal Scrub
St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Face Scrub Green Tea
Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser
Garnier Skinactive Towelettes and Garnier Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub
