After a lot of trial and error, I have finally figured out my perfect skincare routine to help clear blackheads. I really love skincare and have quite a lot, but I notice a definite difference in my skin if I’m not regularly using the following products. If you suffer from blackheads, I don’t think you should run out and get this whole regime because that’s unrealistic and expensive. If a product sounds intriguing though, give that a try. Be patient and you’ll figure out your perfect blackhead-clearing cocktail too.
Skinfix Foaming Clay Cleanser: Skinfix recently sent me this cleanser to try and I couldn’t be more thankful. This cleanser is a gentler version of the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. It has a great lather and makes your skin feel super clean without drying it out. If you’re more oily though, the Origins might be a good option.
Pixi Glow Tonic: I used to think Glow Tonic was overhyped. Wrong. It’s worth all the hype. Whenever I use this, I’m shocked at just how much dirt and oil is still left on my skin after a face wipe and double cleansing. Since this is strong, I’d start with every other day, then work your way up.
Kate Somerville Anti Bac Lotion: I love this lotion so much I could cry. For the last two years or so, I’ve had the worst clogged pores around my chin and nothing would seem to help. They weren’t quite blackheads, but they were causing a lot of uneven texture. Finally, I picked this up on the recommendation of Tiffany D. Within two weeks, the clogged pores on my chin were clear and the blackheads on my nose had diminished. I only use the slightest bit on my chin and nose so it should last awhile. If your skin reacts well to Benzoyl Peroxide, you’ll love this lotion.
e.l.f. Nourishing Night Cream: For a long time now I’ve been using various No7 night creams, which I love, but wanted to change it up. While the price tag may be small in the world of skincare, this night cream still hydrates and nourishes your skin for nighttime repair. I think I might need something thicker come winter but right now, it’s perfect.
Philosophy Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel: Let’s start with the price – yes $62 for a mask is steep. However, professional facials can run you upwards of $100, and I can honestly say this two-step mask gives you visible results. Read the directions carefully so you layer the products correctly. This mask opens your pores and pulls all of the gross stuff out. You might experience a breakout the next day since this mask will bring everything to the surface. For me, this is totally worth it because it helps deep clean so my Glow Tonic and Anti Bac can really work their magic on the top.
I hope that maybe one of these products sounds like it might work for you if you suffer from pesky blackheads. Sound off down below if you have any lingering questions!
Nicole, if you were going to buy just one product to clear blackheads, which would you recommend???
Hi Laura! I think it depends. I think the Kate Somerville Anti Bac has made the biggest difference in my skin. It’s pricey, but you don’t need to use it all over your face. I just use it on my chin and nose, so I see it lasting awhile. Hope that helps!
