Comedone extractor : Or pore strip. Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day. Use oil free products on face. No heavy foundations. Don't squeeze pimples / blackheads. Avoid touching face (i.e., cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (w salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide).
