Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics and I'm going to tell you how to do a homemade blackhead removal. First thing that you want to do is you want to either use a facial steamer, take a really hot shower, or actually boil some water, maybe in a teapot or something and you want to actually steam your face for maybe two to three minutes. Now when doing this, you want to make sure you don't get too close, and also if you have some sort of eye pads or you can put cotton pads over your eyes. You want to protect your eyes. So you're going to steam the face for about two to three minutes and that's going to help to soften up a lot of the oils and dead skin that are clogged within the pore. So after you've steamed your face for a couple minutes, you have two ways that you can really go about removing the blackheads. The first thing we're going to do is we're going to make some finger cots out of tissues or if you have like gauze or cotton, that works really well, too. So we're just going to kind of wrap our fingers up in the tissues, and pretend that she's steamed, so we're going to go and we're just going to take our fingers and we're going to squeeze the skin around where the blackhead or the clogging would be, and we're just going to wiggle. And if you've steamed long enough and you've softened up those oil holes, it's going to come out really easily. Now the next method that you can do is you can actually use some Q-tips and actually go around the blackhead and just squeeze the skin in a similar manor and just wiggle the Q-tips until the blackhead purges out of the pore. So that's how you would want to do a homemade blackhead removal.
