Blackheads & Congested pores(tiny skin colored bumps)
I have a bunch of little bumps on my jawline and some black heads, I wash my face with bliss fabulous Face wash & DDF Foam Salicylic Acid, I was using the DDF sulfur mask once a week & also using this mask for spot treatment, it has not been very effective, so I discontinued using it and opted for DDF 5% Benzyol, this seems to have helped a little because it seems the little bumps are actually emerging, but it still looks bad. Because I have suspended using DDF sulfur mask& Boscia Black Mask, I was debating between this one Bliss Pore perfecting & Pores no more vacuum cleanser. Can anyone tell me what might help with my problem and make my pores smaller? Thank you!

on Pore Perfecting Facial Polish
Try utilizing a product with BHA's or AHA's like salicylic acid and glycolic acid in it. Also, try getting facials that utilize steam with extractions regularly, like once a month. This will purge your pores and allow them to shrink back to their normal size again until they become congested at which point you will be due for another facial again.
I would try using this along with a green tea facial cleanser that also has tea tree oil. Those cleansers can be found in co-ops or other stores that sell all-natural products. It worked for my brother who had these type of problems all over his face.

It sounds like your really trying to get your acne and blackheads under control, but I have a few suggestions that you might want to try (it worked really well for me). I would incorporate this scrub or any scrub to your routine, as the 5% bp product is not really going to exfoliate the skin. Gently exfoliate often, and make sure you are moisturizing your skin, because BP is very effective, but also very drying. (look for a product with hydraluronic acid, it moisturizes well and will not cause breakouts- avoid mineral oil at all costs). The blackheads wont go away unless you have them extracted by a facialist, although this routine should help prevent new ones. One more thing, make sure your using a gentle sulfate free cleanser. Good luck, I hope this works for you as well as it has for me!
