We have all seen the pinterest "hacks" for getting rid of blackheads but do they work? While taking a toothbrush to your nose seems easy, it is not good for your skin. Scratchy bristles are not the answer and can cause more harm then good.
Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. These bumps are called “blackheads” because the surface looks dark or black. Blackheads are a mild type of acne that usually form on the face, but they can also appear on the back, chest, neck, arms, and shoulders
Now what can we do? Gentle peels every few weeks help soften the skin and help the blackheads come out. An esthetician can then safely extract the blackheads.
