Skin care advice please?!.. HELP?

I need help with my blocked pores. I used to squeeze out dried oils from little bumps on my skin all the time.. I think that's why I have so much blocked pores. When I squeeze them again, they just become blocked again and I try to be patient but they don't seem to fade away.. They just stay these hard bumps on my face and I really want clear skin. How to get rid of them?? (I don't have a big budget AT ALL..)

Skin care advice please?!.. HELP?
Wash your face every morning, and evening with Dove face wash, then use St. Ives Apricot Scrub, follow the directions. It exfoliates your skin. In about 1 to 2 weeks you will see a huge improvement. I have been doing it for years, and years.

These are very inexpensive item, I live on Social Security. The sales person might try and talk you into more expensive products, but it is not necessary. These are economical products and they work great.

I am 66 years old, and people cannot believe it. They all say I look like I am in my early 50's.
Reply:I use oxy pads in the winter and straight rubbing (isopropel) alcohol in the summer. Works great for unblocking pores!
Reply:Exfoliating scrubs. Many different kinds out there, but the Apricot scrub works the best for me. Make sure you use a warm damp washcloth on your face before you scrub, it will open up the pores and allow all that stuff to loosen up. Scrub daily, and when done, rinse with cool water to close pores again. Using a mask helps a lot too. If you wear makeup, use a primer. Laura Mercier makes a great one to go under foundation so it does not block your pores. Also, use a toner if you can. An Astringent may be too harsh.
Reply:Yes, you can use facial scrubs. But you have to use toners too, look for toners with salicylic acid. This will help clean out the facial blackheads.

Use glycolic acid soap for oily skin. This will prevent oil build up.

Choose creams and skin care formulations which are non-comedogenic.
Reply:Steam your face, i will tell you what to use, very simple and cheap. get a bowl, add boiling water and then add fresh lemon and cover your whole head and face with a thick blanket, dont oil it, do it again in the morning and evening for 4 solid days.
