Hot compresses: The most natural way to help with these: place a hot compress over the whitehead, black head, etc. Without popping it till the pore opens on its own: change when it gets cold; 20+ times till it decreases; not burning skin. Ideally do this as soon as you feel a head starting. ...Read more

Multiple: Skin specialists recommend face washes based on the condition of the person's skin and what they want to achieve. Using witch hazel will dry out the skin because it has alcohol (not great for the face) and benzoyl peroxide is drying, has some antibacterial action, and is helpful for acne. If your face is dry, you may want a less drying cleanser; if oily, you can try salicylic acid. ...Read more
Prevent tanning: The only natural way to lighten skin is to avoid sun exposure. The down side is that people who avoid sun exposure will lack enough vitamin D, so have to take supplements which are sold everywhere. Many women use skin or facial moisturizers which contain sunscreen. Some also wear wide-brimmed hats and a few wear tinted plastic face shades when in a car (but they may not see as well when driving!). ...Read more

Blackheads all over my face especially my chin, nose, cheeks and forehead I use a blackhead face scrub in the shower but it doesn't help?
Don't scrub!: Your face isn't a pot - don't scrub it. As to what treatment is best for you, each individual responds differently to different treatments, so there is no one "most effective" treatment. A dermatologist can tailor a treatment based on your skin type and the variety of acne you have. ...Read more
Treating the skin: Pills are not prescribed for this unless there is also (A LOT of) acne. Various soaps can be used to dissolve oil. What type and how harsh depends mostly on what works for the individual, but regular soap, benzoyl peroxide or a soap with agents to protect the skin could be used. Sometimes an oily diet MIGHT affect it. Heat, or stress also might. ...Read more
