@berkimus nerdimus- hip indie opinions: ok, homie so i'm having my unwinding-from-the-work-day beer right now but i will try to be as coherent as possible:
blackheads are 4eva going to happen on your t-zone. it's like oil city in that area. but! it's easy to deal with, and you don't have to see a dermatologist.
so, the blackheads are just solidified oil/skin in your t-zone because the oil and dead skin has become backed up and then pack up tight in your pores.
the solution: you want to get your skin hydrated so that the oil on your face (which is naturally acidic and eats up/destroys bad/acne bacteria) is free-flowing and can properly do its job. like, for real that's all you need to do. just get your skin hydrated. eventually the oil will be free and properly balanced to do its thang and the oil will naturally hydrate your face for you.
what you need:
cleanser: you want to make sure your cleanser doesn't make your face feel tight or dry after using it. watch out for laureth/lauryl sulfates because those are detergents and will dry and irritate your skin the fuck out
alcohol-free toner: YOU NEED THIS. VERY IMPORTANT! like, in the morning and in the night, so it's like 7-8 spritzes @ 2x a day.
SPF/moisturizer: also v important
secret: products that have glowing reviews in magazines have those reviews bc they paid the advertising $$$ to get the reviews. ("i'll pay you lots of money to put my ad in your highly-regarded magazine and in return, you are going to mention me in your editorials!") it is some bullshit but thats the way it works
