The Blackhead Removal Method That You Don't Want To Be Without by George Hutton

For those of you suffering from acne, (and you likely know exactly what I'm talking about since you are reading this article), then you can appreciate how absolutely horrible it can be to wake up in the morning and find those terrible looking things on your face. What's worse, you may have something called a blackhead, which will send you scrambling for the best blackhead removal method you can find.

While there are plenty of effective and decent blackhead removal methods out there, some of them take a while, and you need to buy special equipment, such as facial waxing kits, or special tape kits or pens. But what do you do when you find a blackhead, and you've someplace to go, and no time to stop by the drugstore or the beauty salon? Well, you're in luck, as I will show you a quick and dirty (figuratively, of course) trick to get the blackhead gone for good.

First, you need to keep in mind that there are several aspects and component of a blackhead. Blackheads aren't all that different, from a structural standpoint, from your everyday run of the mill pimple. The "black" part of the blackhead will be gone using this method, but you'll need to address the underlying issue at some point in the future. This method is purely cosmetic, meaning it will only take the black part of the blackhead away.

OK, here's what you do. Get any ballpoint pen, and take it apart. Inside there will be that plastic tube that contains the ink. Use the empty end, the end that is near the "clicker" portion of the pen (not the writing end) and clean it thoroughly. Then gently place the open end over your blackhead, and twist it back and forth, while applying a small amount of pressure. You should have the blackhead out and gone in no time.

As soon as you are done, you will need to apply something cold to the area where you just performed blackhead surgery on yourself. This is so the hole will close up, and not get infected. Obviously, a bag of ice is ideal, but anything cold will do. A bag of frozen vegetables will be fine. Make sure to keep it where you just took away the blackhead for a couple minutes, in order to close the recently opened pore.

Of course, at your first possible opportunity, scrub and clean the area as much as possible, and use some antibiotics to keep the area from getting infected. Some people prefer to buy a special tool, but it's really the same thing. Just be sure whatever tool you use is clean, and you take precautions to keep the area clean afterwards. And, of course, you should wash the area that has blackheads as often as possible.
