Clogged Pores!! Help please!

hey guys.

the clogged pores on my cheeks make my acne look so much worse.

i have some on my nose as well but no where near as deep and dark as the ones on my cheeks.

i dont even know where to begin about unclogging them..

can someone offer some advice?

what are some of the topicals or procedures that have helped you?

i've never had a facial, should i get one?

any advice would be greatly appreciated. :D

Salicylic acid or mandelic acid have both had good reports with unblocking pores. There is a wealth of info on this forum, you just have to hunt around for a bit and try the various cures/treatments/procedures out!! That's the problem cos what what works for one person doesn't for another. SA works well for me but MA didn't but I know that MA does work for other people on here. Not a very conclusive answer - sorry!! Good luck with finding something that works for you.

Ditto the above answer -- and yes, also get a facial with extractions. Not a spa facial, though -- you're likely to just waste your money and possibly make things worse. Get a recommendation from a dermatologist's office for an aesthetician who specializes in treating acne and acne-prone skin.
