How do I make my blackheads less visible without makeup?

I’m not a huge fan of facial makeup, but my pores and blackheads are making my skin look awful. Any suggestions?

What's your current skincare routine, @tiawilly? You'll need the basics in place before trying harsher products so you don't accidentally irritate your skin.

Hi @tiawilly!

 

I like to use a clay/mud/charcoal mask and exfoliator.  I use GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Charcoal Instant Treatment Mask 1.7 oz/ 50 g once a week and exfoliate daily with CLINIQUE Blackhead Solutions 7 Day Deep Pore Cleanse & Scrub .  Most exfoliators are used 2-3 times a week unless otherwise stated.

 

I follow with toner and SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O Ultra Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL for pores and blackheads.  Another popular one for pores is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 2 oz/ 60 mL

@tiawilly  @RAWRitsRED , the GlamGlow mask is amazing!

Re: How do I make my blackheads less visible without makeup?

Hi @tiawilly ! I had lots of blackheads too along with other forms of acne. My holy grail brand is Proactiv. This brand helped my skin SO MUCH. Shoppers Drug Mart has a Proactiv Blackhead Dissolving Gel that I swear by - its amazing. i would highly recommend all Proactiv products, but ifyou just have blackheads/dry/sensitive skin, I've heard that Proactiv can be irritating. So, I would also recommend to you the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA +BHA Pore-Tight Toner because it has many ingredients that clear and prevent blackheads and breakouts in general! I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions and have a great day 🙂
