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!

Great for the price!

I have to admit, I am using a number of different products at once. My daytime regime is cleanse, niacinamide solution, followed by 'The Buffet' then topped with my moisturizer with 50 SPF. So, I find it hard to work out what product is exactly doing what.

Having said that, since purchasing the niacinamide solution, I've noticed the spots around my chin where I get hormonal acne ha...

Very Smoothing

I have been using the 5% Lactic acid solution every night before bed for about 6 weeks - I love it! I use to physically exfoliate my skin with a gritty wash, but I'm completely stopped and am chemically exfoliating instead. It has a smoothing effect & I can see the difference - it's more shiny and fresh. It has a slightly drying effect when first applied, but then I apply another serum & moistur...
