Dear Dr Maureen, I have a problem with blackheads. I have used various supermarket products, but they don't seem to work. Would you please give me some advise on how to get rid of them?


Thanks so much for your question. This is a fairly common problem. To be perfectly honest, most “supermarket” cosmetics are just not able to penetrate deep enough and are just not active enough to solve this problem. Even with cosmeceutical products, this is not a quick fix to problems with blackheads and congestion. You really have to combine the use of a good, active homecare cosmeceutical product, combined with deep cleansing treatments. Ranges that are really great for this problem include Lamelle’s Clarity Range, as well as Nimue’s Range for Problematic Skin. I would suggest you contact a good medical aesthetic centre where you can make an appointment with an aesthetic therapist who can help you with deep cleansing treatments. You may find that you will also suffer with dilated pores once the blackheads have been cleared, so you may also want to consider some laser therapy to combat this.
