Banish those stubborn blackheads! It's awful to wake up to realise you've got a blackhead forming, so what's the best way to prevent and treat them? These products are what we'd recommend to you if your skin needs a bit of help getting rid of blackheads.


When it comes to cleansing, make sure you're using a gentle cleanser that cleanses thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some blackhead (and acne) treatments can dry out the skin, but further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more blackheads! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers listed below.


We recommend using a treatment serum that help remove a build-up of dead cells, which can trap molecules that can lead to blackheads. Don't be afraid of using products that contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs, such as Glycolic acid) and/or Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs, usually Salicylic Acid) as they can encourage your skin's natural cell turnover process and leave you with clearer, beautiful skin. Just make sure you wear your sunscreen, and introduce these powerful active ingredients into your routine slowly. 


We recommend using a physical exfoliant once or twice a week, if it is suitable for your skintype. It's easy to think that scrubbing your skin with a physical exfoliant (with beads) regularly will banish blackheads, but over-use can lead to skin irritation and cause more blackheads. If your skin needs an extra scrub, try a cleanser or masque that contains enzymes. This will help tidy up dead skin cells naturally, without causing irritation.


A clay masque can help absorb excess oil in the skin, reducing the chances of blackheads forming. Try one with enzymes, AHAs or BHAs for extra effect!

I have quite large pores on my cheeks

I have quite large pores on my cheeks, and I found this helped to clean out my pores and make them look slightly smaller. It wasn't a massive change, but I feel like it did make a difference. Probably just from getting rid of some black heads.

Really irritated my face!

I really wanted to like this, especially since it is such a hyped product, and so inexpensive! Unfortunately something in this does not react well with my skin; after washing my face with warm water and applying a thermal water spray to my face, I put a few drops of this on my face and after a minute or so my skin started to sting and became blotchy and red. I tried it again a few days later and t...

Very effective!

I use this once to twice a week on my acne prone skin, great for congestion and gentle enough for irritated skin. Also amazing for in grown hairs.
