How can I prevent blackheads, whiteheads and milia?
Ellen Marmur, MD, Dermatology, answered
All three of these pore-blocking problems can be kept in check with regular exfoliation and the use of retinoids, which not only slough off dead skin cells but regulate the shedding process. A chemical exfoliant (salicylic or glycolic acid) or a mechanical method (such as a scrub or at-home microdermabrasion) can be used once or twice a week. If the problem is chronic, see a dermatologist for microdermabrasion or chemical peels twice a year. (Doctors prefer to do it when the seasons change, the winter to spring transition and then summer to fall. Skin tends to be thicker and duller due to the environmental exposure of the winter and summer, and more in need of professional exfoliation.)
