Hi folks,

I have loads and loads of black heads, some horribly nig ones and millions (possibly squillions) of little ones, its as though all of my pores are blocked. I've been a bit low the last couple of years and have not looked after my (oily) skin. I really want to get rid of them. Pore strips dont work.

I was thinking of some hardcore facials? I'm also worried about being left with loads of massive empty pores.

Does anyone have any experience, advise or recommendations?

Thanks in advance,

I had a bad blackhead phase a few years ago and went for a special facial which cleared my skin out properly and didn't leave lots of holes! My skin got loads better afterwards and I've just kept up cleaning it with a decent face wash.

I have found that the salycic acid stuff from Bravura has worked wonders on my skin and reduced clogged pores imensley

Le Roche Posay Effaclar K (if you just need blackheads clearing and general exfoiliation) or Duo (if you have active acne)

I've used the K version for a month and its decreased my blackheads/ pore size by at least half. Its got rid of all the dry skin bits on face and side of nose too and skin feels really smooth. I could feel a zit coming on nose a few nights ago and put good coating on and it actually stopped it developing which impressed me. I've since bought the effaclar H foam cleanser and effaclar moisturiser. I'm slowly going to get all my skin care from this range.

Thank you all. Elkieb, was it a particular brand of facial?
