Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to tell you some home remedies for the removal of blackheads. The easiest way to remove blackheads at home is if you have either a facial steamer or if you take a really hot shower, or even if you just boil some water in your teapot and just kind of put your face over the steam. Don't get too close. And you want to make...if you have an eye mask or something to wear on your eyes to protect your eyes, it's probably the best, but if you steam your face for, say, maybe two to three minutes, that's going to really help to soften. It's actually a term called disencrustation. It's going to help soften any oils or dead skin that might be clogged within the pore. And then after you've steamed your face for a couple of minutes, you have a couple of different ways that you can actually go about removing the blackheads. You can take two Q-tips, such as this. I'm just going to demonstrate on her here, and you can actually squeeze the skin around the blackhead and kind of do it in a wiggle motion. And since your skin's already been steamed and those oils and dead skin within the pores have already been softened, they should be able to pop out really easily. Another thing that you can do is to take either tissues or some cotton pads or something and actually just wrap them around your fingers, make some finger cots, and you can take those, too, and do the same -- just kind of squeeze the skin and do a little wiggling motion, such as that, and that'll remove the blackheads really easily. So those are some home remedies in how you can really easily remove blackheads.
