I am looking for something for my dh. He asked me about witch hazel (I have never used that for anything, although I thought it was a bit drying?) Anyone have any remedies that work to keep blackheads under control? Thanks

Before I was PG I did aspirin/honey masks and the oil cleanse method and the blackheads were going away.

It really depends on his skin--I use it straight on my problem areas.

Cleaning your face with oil will get them out -- if you dry the skin too much it will just make the blackheads harder to get out. Do a search for "oil cleansing method" and you'll find the details.
