Recently, women around the world have gone crazy about one practical trick that can remove all the blackheads from your face. The tip involves the use of dental floss (not kidding!) and is extremely effective!
Sukhi Mann is a popular Instagram user that experiments with DIY beauty tips – among her latest experiments was the removal of acne with aspirin or making DIY lip plumper with wasabi. Pretty crazy, right? Well, you’ll be amazed by her latest trick – Mann recently recorded herself removing all her blackheads from her face by using disposable dental floss picks!
Here’s how the process goes: put a hot towel on your face and leave it to open your pores for 5 minutes, then simply drag the pick over your skin and finish with a cleanser and skin toner. Mann’s not even the first one to use the trick – a couple of women before her recorded videos published on YouTube which showed them removing their blackheads with a dental pick.
If you’re wondering if the trick is safe, New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner says that it is, although you need to apply light pressure. If your blackheads don’t come out with this method, you should visit a dermatologist and never use sharp objects or your nails to remove them.
In general, Zeichner doesn’t recommend Mann’s trick and recommends removing blackheads with salicylic acid cleansers and scrubs. “They will remove your blackheads and absorb the excess oil from your skin, while also exfoliating it,” he says. “Use the floss on your teeth like you’re supposed too, and try other methods for blackheads,” Zeichner suggests.
