Banish those stubborn blackheads! It's awful to wake up to realise you've got a blackhead forming, so what's the best way to prevent and treat them? These products are what we'd recommend to you if your skin needs a bit of help getting rid of blackheads.


When it comes to cleansing, make sure you're using a gentle cleanser that cleanses thoroughly, without stripping the skin of its natural defenses. Some blackhead (and acne) treatments can dry out the skin, but further stripping the skin can lead to it overcompensating with oil... which in turn leads to more blackheads! Stop the cycle in its tracks with some of our favourite cleansers listed below.


We recommend using a treatment serum that help remove a build-up of dead cells, which can trap molecules that can lead to blackheads. Don't be afraid of using products that contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs, such as Glycolic acid) and/or Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs, usually Salicylic Acid) as they can encourage your skin's natural cell turnover process and leave you with clearer, beautiful skin. Just make sure you wear your sunscreen, and introduce these powerful active ingredients into your routine slowly. 


We recommend using a physical exfoliant once or twice a week, if it is suitable for your skintype. It's easy to think that scrubbing your skin with a physical exfoliant (with beads) regularly will banish blackheads, but over-use can lead to skin irritation and cause more blackheads. If your skin needs an extra scrub, try a cleanser or masque that contains enzymes. This will help tidy up dead skin cells naturally, without causing irritation.


A clay masque can help absorb excess oil in the skin, reducing the chances of blackheads forming. Try one with enzymes, AHAs or BHAs for extra effect!

Gentle and hydrating

This is the second step in my cleansing routine. I’ll use it after a cleansing oil to make sure I get everything off my skin after the day. I’ll also use it after the gym in the mornings to freshen my skin. I love the feel, it’s cooling, plumping, does not feel like it’s stripping my skin. I love the skin care benefits from glycolic acid, avocado oil and aloe Vera.

Nice enough

This moisturiser is nice enough. It stings my skin a bit but I assume this is intended. I haven’t noticed a major improvement in my skin since using it but I like to have a moisturiser on hand for when my skin is breaking out but still needs moisture.

Great for T-zone

This product worked almost immediately after use. I have dry combination skin, but very oily and acne prone on the t-zone area. The ingredients are very effective and free from nasties. I am very impressed with this and will be re-purchasing as it really does work!
