Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

I am Dr kakkar. I have gone through your query.

Blackheads or open Comedones are a common cosmetic concern .

Rather than using a scrub , you can apply a topical retinoid once daily at night e.g Adapalene gel. Retinoids are comedolytic and would gradually exfoliate blackheads.
