A blackhead remover tool is what you need to squeeze blackheads, since using your fingers is not really the best idea. Most of us get so fed up with those tiny black marks on our faces that we would do anything to get rid of them, but what seems like the easiest way, i.e., squeezing them with our fingers, can often lead to scars and infections.
There are a few different types of blackhead removal tools available, so you can choose the kind that suits you the best. The easiest one and most economical one is the blackhead removal pore strip which comes with a kind of adhesive that is pressed on to the blackheads and then ripped off with one quick motion, which removes all the blackheads covered by the trip.
One big disadvantage of using the blackhead removal strip is that it damages the skin if used too often. The next type of blackhead removal tool is the reasonably price stainless steel blackhead extractor that you can find at all drugstores. It has a round pressure pad that must be pressed against the skin surrounding the blackhead and acne. Remember to steam your face with a face steam or a bowl of hot water, or use a hot compress on your face, before you use this tool, so that the pores on the skin will be opened and the removal process will be easier.
The stainless steel blackhead extractor is quite popular since because it is hygienic and eliminates the possibilities of infection that comes with using your fingers. It is available in various shapes and sizes so that you can choose the one that provides you with the best grip.
The third type of blackhead removal tool is called the blackhead under-skin vacuum extractor, which creates a vacuum that sucks out blackheads and back pimples. What this tool does is along with removing the upper part of the blackhead, it also sucks out all the muck deep inside. It is recommended that you wash your face with a mild soap after using the blackhead under-skin vacuum extractor on your face.
The fourth type of blackhead removal tool is the metal tweezers, which applies pressure exactly the way we do with our fingers.
Whichever type of tool you decide to use, there are a few things that you must always follow, like sterilizing it before and after use. Also, washing your face thoroughly with a mild anti bacterial soap is a must, after you have finished using the blackhead removal tool.
