Every pore that is found in your body creates sebum. It is important because it keeps your skin moisturized and healthy. A problem will only arise if this sebum gets blocked inside your pores. This will lead to the development of blackheads and whiteheads.
Pinching and squeezing your skin to get rid of whiteheads and blackheads is the worst mistake that a lot of people are prone to doing. This typical approach will only damage your skin and make it more prone to further infections. This might also leave a scar or mark as well. With that said, never ever pinch and squeeze these nasty buggers, especially if you do not have the proper knowledge and tools on how to properly clear them up.
There is this tool called a comedone remover and this is by far the best way to remove blackheads and whiteheads when you are at the confines of your home. You might have already seen this instrument in your local hair or beauty salons. This is basically a small stainless steel instrument that has a loop on its end. This is great for the removal of whiteheads and blackheads, but you need to be extremely careful whenever you are using this particular tool.
Before you use this tool, use a facial steamer or if you do not have one, simply take a nice hot shower. The heat will help open up your pores and softens your skin; thereby making it easier to remove the sebum away from your pores. Gently press your whiteheads or blackheads using the loop end of the comedone tool to remove the accumulated sebum, then after that, take a clean tissue, cloth or cotton ball and wipe away the dirt. Wash your face afterwards with lukewarm water to make sure that you take away all of the dirt from your face.
