DISGUSTING BLACKHEADS

How do you manage your blackheads? I have these few blackheads on my cheek, and when I put AHA/BHA toner, they turn into pimple, afterwhich, the blackheads will be gone, but my face is left with PIH. 😭 Do they really have to "purge" or turn into pimple to get rid of them? Or do you know any product that can simply kind of "melt" them away from my skin? Badly need help on this 😭

You shouldn't purge or breakout every single time... when you are using exfoliating products. It would only happen if you are new to exfoliating products. I would suggest you relook into the AHA/BHA - are they too much for your skin? Could you be sensitive or allergic to any ingredients?

Salicylic Acid and AHA's are actives, they turn them into pimple because it's a purging - once you start using them regularly, purging should end up. There are always clay masks and you can search on youtube a method of removing blackheads with cleansing balm or oil - I tried it and effects were mild, but it can work. The melting products I know is innisfree melting balm and mask. They have quite a huge pore series worth a try

They shouldn’t be turning into pimples afterwards every time, you might just be using a toner that’s too strong for you! Id recommend using the paulas choice bha toner and then following up with a moisturiser with ceramides and peptides to strengthen your skin barrier! i added my recommendations
