I have been fighting blackheads FOREVER. It seems like everyone always recommends salicylic acid. I have tried many salicylic acid products. I am now using Paula's Choice 2% BHA solution, and it works the best out of anything I have ever tried, and makes my skin look great overall, but I still have some super stubborn blackheads on my nose that I just can't ever get to go away completely. What else can I try? Thanks in advance!

Try a black head extracting tool. You can buy them anywhere. It looks like a cuticle tool except it has a very small hole in the tip. You position the hole OVER the blackhead and PRESS gently. The blackhead is extracted through the hole. Its fabulous!! After a session, use your BHA solution on top and maybe a bit of blemish fighting solution. You'll be as good as gold.

Although I'm pretty gross in having to admit that I think that tool is fun... LOL
