I finally have no whiteheads, just large pores filled with blackheads! and hyperpigentatition but that takes time.

Is there anything more natural that helps reduce blackheads? Exfoliating does absolutely nothing for me, i've tried ACV, honey mask, lemon juice, and previous to that all the "toxic" stuff.

The more drastic stuff does work but i'd rather not tear up my sensitive skin again. Please help! :pray:

well the final thing i tried was a honey and cinnamon mask (as a cleanser twice a day) and it seems to keep any whiteheads from forming.

I just ordered jojoba oil, i wanted to see if oil cleansing would help bring everything out and help close the pores.

yeah i was worried that honey would brake me out since it seemed like I was putting sugar on my face lol but I knew that raw honey had so many good things in it that I thought I would give it a try.

Do you think it's ok to use a mask like that daily? I know "normal" masks would dry the skin out if used daily but raw honey doesn't even dry.

My jojoba oil hasn't come in yet so last night I used vitamin e oil as a oil cleanser and my pores seem A LOT smaller.

Yeah I use raw honey as just a cleanser if I don't have time to let it sit on my skin for a while.

I've neverr heard of an aspirin mask. Won't the chemicals be absorbed into the skin? And is it just the acid in an aspirin mask that can help blackheads? Cuz that's what I can get from any citrus fruit (lemon juice).

back when I was around 14-18, I use to get constant blackheads and nothing else. More or less, in addition to what other people have said. I think its more of a genetic thing, because it immediately went away after highschool for me.

I can't believe how much I spent in those acne aisles looking for "black head treatments", I could probably put a down payment on a house nowadays lol
