A result of excessive dead skin buildup and oil production, blackheads, if not controlled, can lead to giant pimples that can cause scarring. This is why you need a blackhead extractor. Sure, many of you might be intimidated by the tool but you should know that not only is this cost effective but it also removes blackheads from deep within. Wondering how to use it? Read on…
Step 1
 

Step 1

First, cleanse your skin thoroughly in order to ensure that your skin is devoid of impurities. We suggest using the Pond’s Pure White Anti Pollution Face Wash. This one contains activated carbon, which easily absorbs impurities along with reducing blemishes while revealing a radiant and flawless complexion. Once this is done, steam your face so it’s easier for you to extract.

Next, place the loop of the blackhead extractor over your blackhead. Now push the tool downward on the blackhead to ensure that the follicle contents are drawn out during the process. Make sure you disinfect the tool once you’re done to ensure that you aren’t prone to infections the next time.

Step 3

Cleanse your skin again with lukewarm water and make sure you use a toner and moisturser after. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner, which is enriched with witch hazel and lavender extracts that not only add that much needed moisture but also tighten pores while removing impurities from your skin. Next, moisturise with the Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Crème Moisturiser that’s easily absorbed into the skin and locks in moisture for as long as 12 hours. Moreover, it contains peaches that will give you the goodness of Vitamin C leaving your skin radiant.
