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 :

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.

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.

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 :


There are some products that are indispensable when it comes to skincare. Here are some accessory products that are recommended to keep in your shelf for emergencies :

Salicylic acid is excellent for cleansing pores and keeping your skin free of several problems. It is an excellent cure for blackheads, acne, and pigmentation, among many others. Best used together with an exfoliant.

Rose water is perfect for hydrating your skin and they even have anti-ageing effects. Mix the rose water into your favorite mud pack and create a very effective mask that combats blackheads and many more skin problems.
