Blackheads: Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin). ...Read more

Scrub exfoliates : Scrubs exfoliate the skin and do little to improve oily skin. Retinoids are more effective for diminishing oil gland output. Otc preparations are usually known as retinols. Prescription strength comes as topical tretinoin (retin a) or oral accutane. I generally prefer basic facial soaps such as cetaphil, basis, dove, or aveeno, (oatmeal) followed by a non comedogenic moisturizer with zinc/titanium dioxide. ...Read more
