Beauty bloggers are talking about a small beauty tool called a Comedone Extractor. It can be used to remove blackheads and whiteheads. If you can’t make it to the derm in time, don’t pop it with your fingers. You may even increase the risk of infection, as well as causing unnecessary inflammation and swelling. If you need to pop, use a comedone extractor instead. In this article, I’ll tell you how to use it.
Technique for Extracting Comedones
- Apply a warm, damp cloth to the area to soften and open the pores.
2. Choose the extractor you prefer. Narrower, smaller threads are preferable to large ones since they won’t cause any harm. But you can use the larger loop if you have a significant breakout.
3. Wrap the blackhead or whitehead with the loop. Press lightly to unblock and unclog the pores. If it does not produce results, stop applying pressure. Likely, the contents of the plugged pore have already escaped, and there is nothing left in it. Pressure from the pore extract may cause a minor bruise, which will disappear on its own.
4. Clean your face with soap and water. Don’t use your skincare regimen right away. Wait for a day.
