Pinay's Guide on How To Be Blackhead-Free

I have this trouble keeping my face blackhead-free. I am very much in love with exfoliation and I love products that have little bids so I can totally feel that my face is squeaky clean.


Blackheads are the number one cause of clogged pores thus a lot of more facial problems may occur specially if you are someone like me who loves to put makeup every day.

Today I will be sharing some tips on how you can keep yourself blackhead-free. I also recommended products that I have already reviewed in the past and tested as important in my face routine.

1. Use an Exfoliating Cleanser. Aside from cleansers with tiny beads feels a lot better when scrubbed on the face, exfoliating cleansers goes deep in the skin and help eliminate the oil and other impurities blocking the surface of the skin. Try to use St. Ives Apricot Scrub which is available in small tube for 69pesos only or the Nivea Deep Cleansing Mud Foam that also acts as a great cleanser.

2. Masks! Masks! Masks! Purifying masks are great way to rehydrate the face after massive exfoliation. Choose a mask that has salicylic acid (if you have a clay one better) and loosen the unimportant blackheads that are clogging your beautiful face. I always have a tons of Beauty Buffet's Refreshing Masks for they are 100Pesos and Below plus sometimes they even go on sale. :)

3. Extract the Right Way. Now I know this might sound scary but extracting the blackheads will be the only way to secure that you will be blackhead-free. Good things is that there are products available in the market that makes the process easier. Bench has this nose blackhead thing for only less than 20pesos I believe same with Godiva's Blackhead cream that you wait to dry up before you can remove by water.

If you don't want to buy new products that you can try using a tissue paper and wrapping it on your index finger. Slowly move in circular motion on areas that you have blackheads.
4. Toner. If you religiously follow items 1 to 3 then don't forget item 4 which is to TONE! Toners help to soothe and balance the skin. This is also a great way to prevent future blackheads. Try Nivea Refreshing Toner if you are on the budget and in a hunt of an everyday toner for your face routine.
