I use a PH balanced cleanser foaming face wash in my morning routine. What I do is I wet my face with hot water to open my pores on my face then add two to four pumps of the foaming face wash on my finger then I just foam it on my face and then after I have foamed it on my face I use a tool called facial cleansing pad it's a silicone with soft silicone small bristles it works very well to combat blackheads and whiteheads especially on my nose area been using this cleansing pad for a week now my face feels so smooth and now have less whiteheads. To know if you have whiteheads just push up from the one side then the other side on the nose you will see all the whiteheads coming out which are just excess build up of sebum. do some research to find out like I did. All these years not taking care of my face and skin now I'm 30 making sure my skin feels as it's best. the facial cleansing is so cheap there are other designs on the market I feel this one is better as the silicone bristles are smaller.
