So you’ve had a spate of blackheads, and you want to find out if there is a better way of getting them out other than squeezing them when the time is right. Thankfully, there are a number of tools developed specifically for how to get rid of blackheads, and these will help you in your quest to remove unsightly blackheads from your skin with the minimum of collateral damage (scarring is a common result of poor blackhead removal technique).
There are a number of different ways to get rid of blackheads, and tips that can make the whole process easier.
Mostly, blackheads contain “sebum” which is just your skin’s natural oil. When a blockage in the skin occurs, the sebum can’t travel through the blocked pore, so it builds up beneath. Before extracting a blackhead, you should use a steaming hot washcloth on the affected area. As with most types of oil, warming it up makes it easier to extract.
Blackhead Vacuum Gun:
This is the single best way how to get rid of blackheads. Instead of traumatizing the skin by squeezing it and damaging it, this tool uses suction on the affected area to pull the blockage and any accompanying waste material with it. The reason why it is so good is that it clears the blockage of bacteria so that the wound does not get infected. Often the waste materials can become quite infected and result in further blackheads.
The principle here is also to do with pulling rather than pushing, squeezing or digging out a blackhead. Working a lot like a wax strip that a girl will use for leg hair removal, the strips are adhesive, and applied to the affected area and allowed to bond for a short while. The strip is then removed and ideally will take the blackhead with it.
There are tools you can use also, but using tools that coerce the blackhead rather than pushing, is preferable.
