So, I was looking over my face a few weeks ago and I noticed quite a few blackheads all in one spot of my face, I fought the idea of picking at them because I didn't want to make them worse but I have no idea what to do to get rid of them, they are pretty deep into my skin, any tips?

Exfoliate? Baking soda mask?

If they're all of the same size, cover all the pores in one area and come back a day or two after you extract them,they're sebaceous filaments and you can't get rid of them except through vitamin A doses beyond 10000 IU.

Google "sebaceous filaments" and you'll see those things that look like blackheads actually aren't. They're usually on the t-zone.

One thing I have found to work great for them is cold cream believe it or not.

What I do is;

Apply a generous amount of cold cream to the affected area and massage for a minute.

Let it set for 10 mins or use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting for about a minute.

Rinse it off with warm water and lightly scrub with a wash cloth or soft facial brush. Make sure you wash the cold cream off very well because it contains mineral oil. Mineral oil does not clog pores but creates a film over the pore trapping in oil, dead skin and bacteria.

Now, dry your face and apply a good drawing clay mask. You want a mask that cracks when dry. Aztec Indian healing clay is a good one and the mint julep mask will work as well.

After all this your pores should look very clean without having to pick and squeeze everything out of them.
