Acne is not caused by dirt, so just keep your face clean. Blackheads are not filled with dirt. Acne does not mean your dirty. Diets seem to do nothing for my skin. Non Pore clogging makeup. Chocolate is a myth too.
#13 - brandi - 10/04/2010 - 23:25
The information was useful, and I would like to add that: another successful remedy is using a bar of soap and hot water (one that is free of dye and scent). Gently use a towel and scrub your face day, night and the pimple will disappear in about one day!

Blackheads and acne were completely a genetic problem, if dey were already there means just leave it and continue ur normal life style. Nothing to do those monsters with cleansing and diet. Its just waste of time and money.

burn the blackheads by using agarbathis then the blackheads will get dry and falls even actually after sometimes but be careful while burning it should not affect the skin...its little bit risky but it really works...use this remedy on large blackheads..
