12 best blackhead treatments of 2021: How to get rid of blackheads

To treat blackheads at home, you might find yourself perusing the aisles of shops like Sephora, Ulta, Walmart and Target, inundated by the amount of skin care products that claim they remove blackheads, like pore strips, face scrubs and face washes. But how do you narrow in on effective products that can help decongest your pores and minimize the appearance of enlarged ones? To find out, we interviewed board-certified dermatologists about the best blackhead-fighting ingredients and what really happens to blackheads if they’re not removed.

Blackheads are a prominent type of acne — up to 50 million Americans experience breakouts, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD). They start as sebum plugs, which are collections of oily liquid that help the skin stay lubricated. When they mix with bacteria and dead skin cells, they congest the pores, according to board-certified dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group. When blackheads are exposed to air and oxidize, they turn black, hence their name.
