The best way to remove blackheads on the face is by exfoliating with a salicylic acid scrub according to the experts at Clearsil. The scrub removes the dead skin cells so that the salicylic acid can break up the dirt that clogs the pores and creates the blackheads.

Blackheads form when dirt enters open pores. This plugs the oils glands and creates the black appearance. They are a common occurrence with acne.

Those who suffer from acne should wash their face twice a day but only two to three times a week with a medicated scrub, such as salicylic acid scrub. Daily exfoliation is necessary to remove dirt and dead skin cells, but it is only needed once per day.
