My blocked pores have dry tags that sit on the skin, if I scrub they come off, I could also tweeze these and the whole blackhead comes out blush.

Heavy exfoliation gets rid but I have these reappear daily, is there any product I can use that keeps the pores clear?

What are they anyway?

Sebaceous filaments.

You need a 2% BHA solution to tone with. Try paulaschoice

Thanks, I'm going to get a trial size one, do I need normal or extra strength?

Just marking my place. I also get sebaceous filaments and I'm trying to decide between Paula's choice and Stridex triple action acne pads. I've found that washing twice with ordinary soap and really rubbing on the SF areas improves things a bit but doesn't get rid of then completely by any means. So annoying! I used to think they were blackheads and be so embarrassed by them. Since I found out they're SFs, I feel less embarrassed for some reason, but I would love to finally get rid of them.
