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!

Worth a try

The Ordinary is known for its affordability which appeals to most of us. I have tried this after hearing so many good reviews. Unfortunately I did not see any significant difference with this serum. It is quite sticky but absorbed well. I also felt a tingly sensation during my first few application (note that I have sensitive skin). However, having said that, I have a friend who absolutely loves this serum and works wonder on her skin. For $9.90 serum, it is definitely worth trying as you don't lose much. In the mean time, I am interested to explore the other serums that this brand offers in the future. I'm not giving up yet!

Unbelievably Effective!

Having tried many "miracle" masks that failed to live up to the hype I was quite astounding at the effectiveness of this mask. As suggested by another reviewer I initially used the mask every other day for the first couple of weeks then once or twice a week and wow!! My stubborn little blackheads that nothing else would budge just seemed to melt away without drying out my skin. The texture and softness of my skin also feels very much improved. Be warned though ... it does sting but don't be alarmed as that's just the mask doing it's thing. I have very sensitive skin prone to eczema and my skin just loves this! My one and only gripe would be the shape of the jar does make it a bit tricky to get the product out (I used an old foundation brush which did make it much easier to use and apply).
