Acne: Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day ; use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Exfoliate occasionally. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatology (discuss meds, comedone extractor, pore strips, etc.).

Never pop a zit around the nose or from the tip of the nose to the corners of the mouth as infection here can spread to your brain. The renowned professor of anatomy at Vanderbilt University used to warn his medical students of this frequently since he lost a medical student to a brain infection from this very thing.

Tape: I have used tape overnight to remove small blackheads. Just put a good hypo-allergenic tape across the bridge of the nose over-night. Many of the blackheads come off with the tape.
