The best exfoliator for blackheads for one person may not be the same for another due to skin type and severity of blackheads. A person who has a serious blackhead problem will need a stronger exfoliate than someone who only has a few. To add to this, they should be using an electric facial exfoliating brush as needed, especially the oily skin types. Only trial and error will let you know for sure what works for you and what doesn’t.
When it comes to blackheads, exfoliation is one of the keys to not only get rid of them, but also to prevent them. The problem is that plain old every day face washing doesn’t remove what I call ‘face scum’. Face scum consists of makeup, dead skin cells, impurities, bacteria, pollution, dirt and oil. Face scum must go!
There are several methods of facial exfoliation one can use to get rid of blackheads and other blemishes on the face and body. Two of the most common are the facial exfoliating wash and facial scrubber. Facial washes cleanse as well as exfoliate, whereas, facial/ body scrubbers are designed to only exfoliate.
You can also exfoliate with an exfoliating washcloth, which you can choose to use an exfoliating cleanser with or not. Most people try them without cleanser at first just to see if it will be sufficient and then add a cleanser later if it isn’t. Why buy facial cleanser if you don’t need it?
Keep in mind, however, that you have to start somewhere and it might as well be with a popular blackhead exfoliate that works well for most. For those who want to go this route I have a couple of best sellers you can check out. The Body Shop Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash and Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub. Both exfoliators have positive reviews and high ratings on Amazon if you want more details and to compare prices.
Or if you like gadgets then a battery operated facial brush might be the way to go. Did you know that an exfoliating facial brush can clean the face 6X better than regular face washing and can do it in less than 2 minutes. The best deal going on right now, if you’re on a budget, is the Dove SkinVitalizer Facial Cleansing Massager. Cost is under $10 with everything included, so it’s ready to go.
As you can see the best exfoliator for blackheads is the one that meets your specific need and the only way to find out is to give them a try.
