Black heads

I bought a new black head remover, but it hurts so much when i use it.

Is there a special technique without getting red marks all over my face?! Sometimes i can see the black head and cant get it out because it just hurts too much! :(

Any advice? Thanks. :)

Notifiy me with emails too

Re: Black heads

Look online for the oil clensing method and try this for 1 week.  Choose a recipe for your particular skin type.  When done properly it should "force out" the blackheads.

Hi littlekoala,

     I would not use the blackhead extractor at all.  If you don't do it properly, you could permanently scar your face and make those blackheads much worse.  My top recommendation would be pick up a Clairisonic MIA with the deep pore cleansing brush.  I have always had blackhead, always!  When I keep my face washed and make sure to use my Clairisonic MIA at night, I have no more blackheads for the first time since I was 11 years old.  If you don't want to pay the approximately $120, try the Olay sonic version.  I think it costs about $40? but I have heard it works just as well.  I would also try the Origins Clear Improvement Active charcoal mask to clear pores.  This is my favorite mask to help keep the blackheads away!  I really hope this helps!

Thanks for all of the above suggestions! I don't have loads of blackheads, but I do get them occasionally and would like to have some products on hand for removing them.
