pores or blackheads on cheek

hi, i have quite enlarged pores on my cheeks now. i don’t have acne or anything i actually have very clear skin, but slight eczema. i’m thinking maybe it’s because i have an infected lymph node or something that my systems are down now and everything is unregulated, i’m unsure. i really don’t know what to do because i can not find a product that unclogged the pores but isn’t for acne. it might seem like a minor issue but my skin is so important to me and since i’m only 16 i don’t want my skin to be bad as i grow up. ive thought about ‘The Ordinarys’ glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and niacinamide with zinc but they target for acne, fine lines or blemishes and i don’t suffer with any of those . ive also heard they’re not fresh for melanin and since i’m mixed i don’t want to effect my skin complexion. i just need is something to unclog my pores weather that’s a face mask or exfoliador or a new cream,i have no clue what to do, thank you

An astringent cleaner will work on black heads.  Basically it is oil/dirt building up in pores.  Some people are more prone to them than others. Keeping the face clean helps.  The things you mentioned salicylic acid especially is recommended.  Here's an article of ideas  https://www.healthline.com/health/beauty-skin-care/how-to-get-rid-of-blackheads  I use benzol peroxide too and I use some wipes that clean my face. Don't sleep in make up.  Clean your face before bed.
