I'm lucky, I don't have too many of these little black dots on my skin because my nose has taken the brunt of it. Honestly, it's covered in tons of little back dots. I remember my sister always squeezing her blackheads out after she'd have a shower but her nose would be like Rudolph's at the end of it. I prefer to use less torturous methods...
Homemade Blackhead Treatment
1 TBSP unflavored gelatin (you can find this in the baking section in any grocery store)
1 1/2 TBSP milk (Skim for me since it's all I have in the house)
Mix ingredients together in microwave-safe dish and heat in microwave for about 10 - 13 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir with a (clean!) spoon. Apply generously to problem areas avoiding the eye area at all costs. Ensure your skin is clean prior to treatment. Let sit and fully dry on skin for about 20 minutes (longer if necessary) and, once settled, peel the treatment off your skin. The stuff clogging your pores should be stuck to the treatment film. (it's like you've created your own personal Biore Pore Strips!!!) After removing the treatment, rinse skin with cold water to close the pores.
**As pesky as blackheads are try not to pick, extract or squeeze any inflammed areas. This will make the blackhead area worse AND can infect other "clean" areas of the skin. Should your skin have inflammed blackheads, wait to use this treatment until after the swelling has gone down.**
