The gel that instantly cleared up my blackheads
There are lots of weird and wonderful ways to remove blackheads. I’ve watched a video of one youtuber removing hers with dental floss, another using egg whites to purify her pores and have read about people using baby nail clippers. Ouch! Personally, I prefer more conventional ways of extracting blackheads.

Last year I came across one that I can’t stop using! Why? Because it actually works. The Proactiv® Blackhead Dissolving Gel is who you wanna call when you want blackheads to scat. I always thought Proactiv® was a brand for teens, but uh-uh. This product is genius. It contains salicylic acid and lactic acids that are known exfoliating ingredients - which is very helpful when it comes to blackheads. They not only help to dissolve blackheads, unclog pores, absorb excess oil but also remove bacteria that can further spread them.
Whenever pesky blackheads appear, I start using the gel two times a week. You simply massage it into the skin, in circular motions, until the gel liquefies. The beauty of this gel is you only have to leave it on for five minutes. In that time I brush and floss my teeth and by the time I’m done, I wash the gel off. Even though it’s a powerful product, it doesn’t sting or tingle but feels gentle on the skin. The gel instantly gives my skin that clean, healthy feel and the blackheads magically disappear. Boom!
I should also mention the gel actually helped me deal with my whiteheads and pimple, too. So that was a bonus. But the other perk of this product, I can't omit is the fact it’s non-comedogenic, which means it’s specially designed to not clog pores. I struggle to find skin care products that don’t clog my pores, so this one is a winner in my eyes. This Proactiv® Blackhead Dissolving Gel will definitely remain a staple in my beauty cabinet.
