How to get less blackheads ?
- You should make sure to wash your face and use a good face cleanser ever night to get rid of makeup remainings, microscopical drops of sweat, pollution from outside etc. If you do this, you will get less clogged pores that may turn into blackheads and acne. Do NOT use acne products containing ingredients that dry out your skin, as this will in most cases just make your skin product more sebum (oils) to "survive", and you will get more clogged pores from the excess oils.

A common mistake is to sqeeze blackhead with fingers.
This way you're only spreading bacterias into the pores, which in turn will cause acne breakouts and even worse: Acne scars and scars from your finger nails while squeezing blackheads.
