blackheads… SSC glycolic cleanser
I have noticed I have some blackheads and was thinking of trying SSC glycolic cleanser. Any recommendations for it or something else? I also got the Prosonic Glow. I haven’t noticed any improvement but I will give it more time. Now I’m reading that people are really liking the Foreo Luna. Any thoughts on these two things? TIA.
Sorry to say, but nothing short of extraction gets rid of blackheads. I have used all of the products and perhaps they help to lessen them, but nothing gets rid of them. The best things to do is to get an extractor (I use a pin – gasp!), wash your face and exfoliate with a scrub. While your face is still damp use a mega magnifying mirror, press down on the side of the blackhead and they will come out. THEN you can use your salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxides, etc. to help prevent them from returning… but they always do. I extract them about once a month or so. I am 56 years old and have always taken care of my skin. I am a little oily, which encourages blackheads. One caveat of treating blackheads is that it’s very drying, which doesn’t work so well with older skin and wrinkles. Sigh….
Paula’s Choice has the best BHA products. They have worked on my whiteheads on nose! Her products are color free, fragrance free and no animal testing. Call for free samples. I’ve been using most of her products since 1995 and they work! Also, go to Beautypedia for recommendations of dept/drugstore/online products — skin care & makeup.

To combat blackheads, the best skincare ingredient is salicylic acid which is a beta hydroxy acid, or BHA. That’s the acid, such a harsh sounding word, that cleans out or exfoliates inside the pore. One of the easiest to use and find are the Stridex pads. They are alcohol free and look for the 2% salicylic acid strength.
Also, jojoba oil is great for cleaning out pores. Oil cleans oil and jojoba is very similar to skin’s own oil. It loosens that plug in the clogged pore.
Finally, any mask that has kaolin clay or bentonite clay will be helpful since it pulls gunk out of pores.
Danged word changer !

Bleep…I abbreviated EXFoliating…off went my post !! Big Brother is watching! “US” OLDER ladies don’t tend to wash our hair daily like “back in the day” and many build up hair products which concrete into the pores, it seems. GET THAT H A I WAY BACK AND AT LEAST USE YOUR PASS INTO THE HAIRLINE ABOUT 1/4 TO 1/2 INCH. MUST MASK at least 2-3 X per week. If I had the money I would be on Dermalogica’ s skin care plan which has an emulsion pre cleanser and daily microflora nth BUT doing well with my CVS PRODUCTS COMBINED with my EXF AC LAS BY LAURA ROCHE POqSAY ( coupons everywhere ! AND
nti aging acne plan as does Vichy. Plus in the ULTA SALE TIL 5/31 !! EXF AWARE also has a ” TRY ME” TV SPOT!! Look online, fab company !! ALL ABOVE FOR ALL AGES, BUT 30+ .
WHY ARE THE YOU USING RETIN A?? Start with ,05, you’ll be fine I PROMISE . ALOE VERA GEL WILL HELP IF NEEDED; HOLDS 4 WEIGHT IN WATER ! I ***

I had a bout with something new to me: Adult Acne…MATURE as in over 60 Adult Acne Never a zit in my life and then WHAM !! Happened upon a 15th mirror and nearly died !! VIP: DO NOT MIX USING Daly colic Acid (#1 FOR BLACKHEADS ) and Benzyl Peroxide. They don’t play well together thus all the new glycolic products. Try Ssc, i missed it last visit. We to to CVS (not my regular drugstore) and and found a fabulous store brand done with a Dr. Which had at leasst cream cleanser and powerful pads. Also picked up the **bleep**+FAB EXF cleanser and pads since they were on sale, too. Not as strong as The Dr/CVS COLLECTION but promising esp for the price
I am not a big fan of SSC, but I do like some of the facewashes.
I didn’t care for the Glycolic cleanser at first, but then I realized that I was supposed to be using it on dry skin. I had been using it like any other facewash. When I quit wetting my face first, I really noticed it was working.
Thank you for the info on the Kelly West system. I’m glad it works for you. I purchased the PMD microderm device and wasn’t impressed. My skin is very tough from many years of too much sun.
Good Morning & Happy Memorial Day Weekend, I had white and blackheads, regardless of how many cleansers, and masks I used, so I purchased the Kelly west Microdermabrasion Unit
on HSN, This is the best Investment I have ever made, it cleans your face thoroughly, my arms, my neck, my legs, and I highly recommend this unit. It’s a bit pricey, but when you realize how much you spend on cleansers, mud, masks, serums, nothing is going to penetrate your skin, and do it’s job, unless it’s totally CLEAN ~ I will find the # for you, Have a Wonderful Day, it’s helped with cleansing and if you have time take a look at the video, it’s unbelievable what we have in our skin, so many toxins to be removed, I love my skin, and helps with lines, and also You know You Are Clean, and ready to use sunscreen, peptides or makeup on clean skin

Thank you ladies. I am getting it. I wish I had gotten it when she was on last with all the special values.
The SSC Glycolic Cleanse is a great deep pore cleanser. It’s the best cleanser they make and is one of the original products that launched the company. The Glycolic Mask (currently out of stock ) takes it a step further in cleaning pores. I’m not familiar with the Prosonic Glow.
I’ve been using the SSC glycoic cleanser forever. I use it at night it’s a good cleanser to remove makeup and my skin always feels clean after using. I have to say that I do get the occational blackhead I use Paula’s Choice BHA 9 Treatment it works wonders on blackheads.
