The Body Shop's Blackhead Remover

This is a little bit gross, but for those of you who don't mind a little hands-on treatment and are on the search for flawless skin, this kinda brings you a step closer. I have used this for years, after having worked at Body Shop. Its cheap and effective...but don't get carried away with it.

This is a great option for people with enlarged, blocked pores. You can use it after a long, steamy bath, or after popping your face over a bowl of hot water for 10 minutes. Its a simple and hygienic way of extracting blackheads.

It has two ends as well which means it can extract other larger blemishes as well as small blackheads. This is a quick way of unclogging your pores, but could cause scarring if you are too harsh with it.

Beware: the area around the blackhead should never stay red, this is a sign that you are putting too much pressure on your skin. This could force the dirt in further and cause permanent damage to the tissue of your skin.
