Try an exfoliator or face scrub. This will help to loosen the dried up oils and dead skin. Then use a hot compress on the blackheads. Do these two things BEFORE trying to remove blackheads by GENTLY squeezing. Do not try to remove blackheads without doing those two things first, as it may lead to an infection below the skin. You must do this on a regular basis or it will not help that much. If you do a search on this acne message board using "exfoliate" or "face scrub", you will get lots of ideas. I like the simple (and cheap and natural) corn meal trick - adding it to a lathered face using your favorite soap or clensing bar in the shower. There are a lot of other recommendations out there.

B-5 supplements may also help lower the oil production. Don't forget all the other vitamins discussed elsewhere on the board: C, Beta Carotene, Zinc/Copper, E). Avoid all trans fats like in margarine, breads (some but not all), crackers, chips, most baked goods and processed peanut butter.
