How to Prevent Blackheads?
I am 46, I have sensitive, fair skin, with minor sun-damage and very, very few wrinkles. I drink plenty of water and try to eat right and exercise and I use a good skin care regimen and SPF sunblock - EVERYDAY. Yet, I still get blackheads -- especially on the sides of my face, kind of on the cheekbone at the outside edge of the eye-socket going back towards my ear/hairline.
What else can I do to prevent blackheads? I very rarely have a whitehead (3, maybe 4 times a year...)
