Both men and women tend to get blackheads in the pores around their noses, but guys often leave them there.
Dermatologists say that when women see a pimple or clogged pore, they tend to get rid of it.
Squeezing pimples isn’t a good idea since it can leave scars and cause more breakouts. Salicylic acid in a wash, scrub, or leave-on product can remove oil and dead skin that cause blackheads and make them more obvious.
Sticky strips that pull clogs from pores also can help clear blackheads safely.
