How To Properly Extract Blackheads
Learn how to properly extract blackheads with these tips
In order to prevent scarring from occurring, you want to be careful not to use your nails or sharp objects when you extract blackheads. You can try using a professional blackhead extractor or a lancet. Dip it in rubbing alcohol, then gently insert the lancet vertically into the pore. Once you have opened up the pore, stick the looped end of the extractor in to pull out the blackhead. Using an extractor will decrease your chances of permanent scarring. If you do not have access to these instruments, you can also use two Q-tips in order to press the sides of the pore together until the debris comes out.
