Combine a bit of warm water with a little bit of iodine and some epsom salt. Stir it together until the salt disolves, then dip a cotton ball in it, and apply it to the blackhead. Let it sit until it dries some (it start to feel a little tight) and then wipe it off with a wet paper towel (do NOT use a washcloth! The iodine will stain it!)
You may need to do this a few times.
Then use an extractor (you can get them in the health and beauty departments of most stores. They look like a metal stick with loops on each end) and use that to drain the blackhead. Do your best to get everything out of the pore, but don't hurt yourself in the process!
(you may also need to exfoliate before extracting)
Then use a toner/astringent on the pore to keep it clean. Then wipe it with cold water to close up the pore.
Be sure to wash your face twice a day (and use moisturizer! Or your skin will get VERY oily), and you should be good.
It may start to fill again, because pores take a while to shrink down. So just repeat this process about once a week, or as needed until it's gone.
And be very vigilant! I ignored my blackheads, and now my nose is covered with them, and they're very hard to get rid of because there's just so MANY of them.What to do with blackheads?
鈥?Roasted and powdered pomegranate skin is good in treating boils, pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.
鈥?Cucumber is good for treating skin eruptions and bulges and for whitening skin. It can also prevent pimples, wrinkles, blackheads and dryness of the face.
鈥?Orange juice can be an effective remedy for pimples and acne. It can also be used for scar and blemish removal.
鈥?Strawberries can be used for conditioning and skin toning treatment. They are rich in salicylic acid, an ingredient found in many commercial acne creams.
I like the Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser. It works well and feels nice. Good luck!
