Need help w/ Whiteheads&Blackheads

Hey everyone! As of quarantine, I've been struggling a lot with whiteheads and blackeads on my skin. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. My nose is completely filled with dark blackheads, my chin is full of whiteheads and my cheeks have both. It's very noticeable and I'm starting to get very insecure about it. I've been struggling for almost 3 years now. I've tried 5 different skincare routines and my skin is in the same place, if not worse. I'm really starting to lose hope. I was told to use a lot of salicylic acid, so all of my products have some of it as well as a salicylic acid serum. If there's any advice or recommendations you could give me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! ❤️

Cosrx BHA - can see the amount of picks, you can rest assure it works Inkey list- kaolin mask, actually any kaolin mask can help to pull up those blackheads Anua toner - my HG toner that helps me to clear up my whiteheads, personal own fav!

This exfoliator has helped me significantly reduce whiteheads, blackheads & closed comedones 💚 I use it once a week. Since your skin is resilient, you could consider using it up to thrice weekly ☺️

I don't think you should be doubling up on exfoliation any further. Retinol addresses this concern perfectly and has a big list of other benefits as well 💫 I suggest starting with a low percentage retinol like this one from TO
Retinol 0.2% in Squalane
