What products can I use to prevent blackheads?

Asked by Eric

I usually get a lot of blackheads on my nose even though I’m using a sunscreen every day. My dermatologist removes my blackheads, but I want to use a product to avoid getting them instead. Would glycolic acid be the best solution? Even though my skin is pretty dry? My skin is also pretty fair.

    While glycolic acid (5-10%) will be very helpful in preventing and treating blackheads, making sure your sunscreen is labeled water-based or oil-free is also very important…using a gel or alcohol-based sunscreen would be best.
