Blackheads are nothing, but pesky black spots seen on the face, nose or any other part of the body. Blackheads removal is commonly done during facials, in beauty parlors, by the therapists or the beauticians. Blackheads are essentially a form of acne that occurs due to accumulation in the skins pores, of sebum, dead skin particles, and bacteria, which drain slowly into these pores and blacken, due to exposure to the sunlight or on oxidation. Blackheads must be removed and cleaned, to avoid complicated problems with acne eruption on a severe scale.

Which Tool to use for blackhead removal? This is the most common question which comes to our mind when we prepare our self to remove blackheads on our own. On an average around 1200 to 1500 people visit a beauty saloon for just skin care. A major part of this traffic is caused because of blackheads.


If you want to remove that large, unsightly blackhead, follow the steps below:

• Remove a pen's inner ink tube • Press transparent end over the blackhead and twist in the direction of left to right. • Presto! Out pops the blackhead! • Place a bag of peas that have been frozen or even an ice cube will work, over the hole where the blackhead was to make it close up.

However, those who plan to remove blackheads using the tools available in market get confused with the number of products available in market. Here we will talk about these products and which one you should go for.

Getting a chemical peel:

Another way to rapidly clear your skin from dead cells, is to use chemical peels containing glycolic acid or even some skin care products with salicylic acid. But if you have already used a retinoid cream, this could be a risky blackhead cure to try.


Another good cure is to start eating more healthily. To clear your acne, a good diet will help to slow down the production of sebum, while keeping your skin well hydrated. This can be done by simply avoiding saturated and hydrogenated fats, consuming more water and eating fresh fruits and veggies. Any carbohydrates and oils that have been heated should be avoided, while natural cold-pressed oils (like extra virgin olive oil) are great for this natural blackhead treatment.
