You can use some low potency benzoyl peroxide exfoliating product for removing dead skin cells. It is very effective on the blackheads and is mild to your skin as well. In this way you can remove even the most stubborn blackheads. Also, microdermabrasion can be used to remove stubborn blackheads. There are kits available in discount stores. They make your skin very smooth, and need only be used every couple of weeks. In between use an exfoliator or blackhead removal strips.
If your blackheads are large and visible you can do some gentle home extraction.
Wash your face and use a wet warm cloth over the area to soften the top. Next use two damp swabs and press gently on both sides. There are also extractors that consist of a small hollow tube which is pressed over the blackhead so that it is squeezed into the hollow center. Do not use fingernails or anything sharp as it will injure skin.
you should try going to olayforyou.com they help you choose products especifically for your skin type.
The brand Shiseido has a line called ';Pureness'; that is all for problem skin (acne/blemish prone/blackheads). You can find Shiseido at Macy's, Lord and Taylor, or Bloomingdales..it's a bit pricey but the Pureness line itself isn't too bad and it's worth it for good stuff.. Everyone that has ever tried it says it's the best they've ever used..Shiseido's Purness line has a specific scrub called ';Pore Warming Scrub'; that is specifically for blackheads..it really smooths the area out well and eventually reduces them significantly...just make sure you don't use it every day and make sure your face is clean and dry before you massage it onto the blackhead prone area (only) for about 30 seconds.
