The major treatment of blackheads includes daily, regular skin hygiene, such as washing the face with a mild facial soap. It is important to avoid very harsh soaps as drying out the skin too much can also causes problems.
If hygiene alone does not work then the addition of a comedonolytic, or skin debris removing agent, may be helpful. The safest and most common form of comedonolytic are those that contain benzoyl peroxide; there are many over the counter products in your local pharmacy that contain benzoyl peroxide.
