1. Start A Regular Exfoliating Treatment
Use a cotton bud to rub some exfoliating product—very gently— against those pesky little spots. Any chemical exfoliators you have at hand would do.
2. Use Retinol
If you can't get a hold on retinoid cream (which is usually prescribed) you can opt for retinol cream or serum. Use it once per day if your skin is adapted to its strength, and don't skip on sunscreen.
3. Don't Pick Or Try To Forcibly Remove Them With Your Nails Or Fingers
It will only make it worse. Worst case scenario: it could cause scarring that would be much harder to remove.
4. Opt For A Facial Peel
If you're not the patient kind, you could always book an appointment for a facial peel. Opt for treatments with salicylic acid or glycolic acid as they are powerful exfoliating agents.
