How to get rid of blackheads

I read that air pollution exceeds safety limits in major Asian cities including Singapore whose particulates exceeded WHO guidelines by 50 percent while particulates in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, were more than five times over WHO guidelines.

The study took into account three main pollutants -- particulate matter of 10 micrometres and smaller, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide. Not a single city in Asia had all three pollutants within limits considered acceptable by the World Health Organisation.

The study found that elderly people with cardiopulmonary and other chronic illnesses were especially vulnerable and they tended to die prematurely when their conditions were exacerbated by bad air. The very young are at risk too. And for the in-betweens, they would naturally be more concerned with how to get rid of blackheads which was exactly what my colleague asked after a weekend out taking some out-of-towners on a city tour on foot.
