Hmm at this point I would be really careful with facials. Because...the clogged pores usually just refill and may become inflamed. If I have a bunch of them , I just apply AHA and after 30 Minutes ist squeeze the skin very very very gently with tissue wrapped around my fingers (the pores are open then).What does not come out that way, will nit be touched any further.
Usually this works very well , and I apply a small layer BPO afterwards to prevent infection.I do this in the evening after a shower when everything is extremely clean and the skin is already softened, and afterwards I do not put on any make up or moisturizer or whatever, and sleep on a fresh towel with my face. So they never inflame. They only do that if I pick during daytime which is a veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy bad habit I should really get control over ASAP.
For clogged pores, the best choice for me are acid peels. I do the PC AHA 10% and PC BHA 2% daily and it made a huuuge difference.
I will order some higher percentage home peels from Make up artists choice when I get my first paycheck for my new job I just started (used to be a stay at home mom until last week), because the shipping costs are horrendous (37 USD).
Those things looked absolutely the same for me. And they appeared on places I never was acne-prone before. Like that spot you have there. My active acne was along my jawline and around my mouth and I never had zits on my upper cheeks.
