Hi everyone, i have a comibnation skin type...lately i have been getting very small comedones on my chin,you can see how the hair folicles are blocked, the more i try and treat them with acne products the worse they get. If they are squeezed a hardish white substance comes out...has anyone had this issue?

Salicylic acid is most effective for these, but you won't find properly formulated salicylic acid at any drugstore. 2% (the typical amount) is also a measly amount for stubborn clogged pores.

Using a properly formulated pure salicylic acid 5% from Diana Yvonne was night and day compared to the crap I had been using from the drugstore. Using it every day for a week has removed 9 of my stubbornest 12 clogged pores that have been on my skin for YEARS. For the last 3 I will be using a 20% salicylic peel.
