    With enough money there must be a way to have your pores done...Britney probably just has someone else's skin grafted onto her face whenever she thinks she's getting blackheads...

    facials with extractions are the best! I had them regularly before my wedding and my skin looked great. Lele is right -you have to go to a good place with a good, licensed esthetician. I can't afford them right now but exfoliating 3X a week, a purifying mask once a week, and Clinique Turnaround Cream or another cream with AHA's in it works for me!

    Ew... where do you people think I go to get facials? Some clandestine back alley operation? uh uh... only the best for me please.

    You can get rid of blackheads, just not the ones on your nose. Blackheads on your nose can be squeezed and removed, but it's only temporary and always returns.

    As for your pores, trust me, you can't reduce the size of them. You can minimize the look of your pores and tighten them, but again, the effects are only temporary.

    there's no problem with my pores at all, so can't help you with that.
    and as for blackheads, I use this mask from Ingrit Millet, it's a rinsed off cream mask called Pure Clarifying Mask. this is really one mask I can't live without. it leaves my skin so clean so fresh, also well brightened.
    btw, I suggest you NOT to use those peel off masks for blackheads :ninja:

    lele the accutane peddler :wink: hehe just kidding around.. hey how much does a pack of accutane go for these days? I used it a few years ago so I'm wondering what the price is now... plus I don't have a drug plan anymore but I did then so I don't think I even knew how much the darn things went for in the first place :P

    Ice cubes supposedly stop pimples before they form. I've tried it a couple times and it actually seems to work. :rolleyes:

    :shock:

    It wasn't nearly that much when I took it... I mean I knew the general area was $100-$200 then... wow. I'm glad I don't have bad acne anymore.

    I was just going to say. I went to the derm and said my problems and said "and i want the blackheads on my nose to go away" and she said the only thing that will remove them is accutane. Sheesh, why does it take more than two weeks? :P
    I hear it's pricey, but i don't really know how much stuff costs. i think mine cost something like 70 for a pack of 30 but thats with a drug plan and i have no idea how much the drug plan absorbs.

    oh sure insurance will cover almost all of it... :smile: 400$ might be for a month maybe each packet was around 100... I might have it wrong it has been a few years since i have taken it.

    it tightens the pores. just like when you shower in cold water, it tightens your skin.
    its temporary but good :flower:

    hehe, here I am. :lol:

    I agree with Sean, Idealist is a great product to reduce the size of pores. In addition, the Micro D scrub will help even out skintone, as for perfect penetration of the Idealist.

    You might also want to try the Clinique "Pore Minimizer" lotion, which comes in a tube. I haven't tried it, but I have heard its good, but I have tried the Instant Perfector, which is this silicone based product with two shades, which blends easily on skin, filling out pores for a flawless look, without clogging them.

    Other option, if you don't want to go for a facial, is get a steamer, or just boil a pot with water, and cover your head with a towel, so the vapor stays inside that area, and that will open up pores. That will help you with blackheads, so you can strip them out carefully without using your nails. This will work the first 10 minutes, because the pores will go back to their normal size.

    I hope this helps :wink:

    there are a lot of side effects of accutane however it's not that simple. most are VERY rare however like all medications there are side effects. one must be careful :ninja:
