Comedone extractor: Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day. Use oil free products on face. Avoid heavy foundations. Don't squeeze pimples (including blackheads). Avoid touching face (i.e., cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after stenous exercise. Consider otc products (w salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > than mild acne see dermatologist (discuss meds, comedone extractor, etc.).
