If targeting issues such as zits or blackheads, don’t pop yourself — just don’t. Slow and steady wins the race, and Danuta Mieloch, founder of Rescue Spa in Philadelphia and New York agrees. “Don’t extract your own blackheads and pimples — no pore strips. [Use something] with alpha hydroxy acid to prevent ingrowns and speed up exfoliation,” she says. “One of the products we are always recommending is [Biologique Recherche Lotion] P50. It prevents ingrowns, it’s great post shaving, and [it fights] blackheads on the nose.”
