Is it Good to Remove Blackheads?

If so, how often?

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but don’t make it a weekly habit! Stubborn Blackheads will not come out on their own and normally need some pressure to come out. After you have extractions done by an experienced dermal therapist it’s best to adopt ingredients in your home care that maintain the outcome for long periods of time. Useful ingredients include: retinol (Vitamin A), alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, zinc, and niacinamide (also known as nicotinamide, or Vitamin B3).
