*Be gentle, not heavy handed*
1.Wash your face and rinse well with warm water. It can also be helpful to place a warm cloth over your face for a minute or so to open up your pores.
2. Lay the loop from the extractor over a blackhead.
3. Gently press down on the left or right side of the blackhead then move the tool across the top of the blackhead while you’re still applying gentle pressure.
This motion pushes the dead skin cells, sebum and other blockage out. Repeat this motion on each blackhead that you would like to remove from your face. For your nose, you will do a similar motion, but you have adjust the angle.
When you are trying to get blockages and blackheads from the side of your nose, use the edge of the loop to scrape across the blockage. This will help you ease out the debris.
4. Once you’re finished, cleanse your skin again. Then apply toner and moisturize your face, preferably with a cooling moisturizer to relieve any irritation. If you find that you’re face is very irritated, aloe vera gel will help you soothe it.
