Blackhead are a result of open skin pores on face. Its a common problem, but sadly pores cannot be closed.

If they are infected or U have acne, then medication will help, or else not.

For blackhead removal, best way is to remove them mechanically in a salon/beauty parlour. Then keep skin clean, by regular washing and scrubbing. Also avoiding steam during facial/clean up is helpful, as steam futher enlarges the pores.

Keeping body healthy by good diet, more fluids, keeping fit by exercise and minimizing stress is good for whole body including skin & hair.
