Blackheads, in addition to being a great name for a punk band, are also the result of pores being clogged with oil and dead skin cells. And if you think they aren’t all that noticeable, keep in mind that they can also lead to zits. In order to get rid of blackheads, you should treat your skin with salicylic acid regularly—even when blackheads aren’t present. “Prevention is the best treatment,” Gross says. Apply Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion ($7.99) twice daily to blackhead-prone areas.
