  • How to Remove Blackheads at Home

    Blackheads don't discriminate. They can be found from your face to your feet, and oftentimes between a women's breasts and on her nipples. These tiny black blemishes form when sebum and oil mix in the hair follicle, then rise to the skin's surface. The air turns the area black and -- voilà! -- a blackhead forms on your breast. The good news is that you can easily banish blackheads with the proper cleansing products and the right blackhead removal tools .

    Step 1


    Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of clay mask onto your breast. Smooth over the blackhead area and allow it to dry. The best acne-fighting masks include kaolin and glycolic acid, two ingredients that help clear dead skin cells and debris, and dry up oil.
    Step 2

    Wait a few minutes until the mask begins to turn a lighter shade but still feels a bit sticky. Take a hot shower and rinse off the mask.
    Step 3


    Place a dollop of cleanser on your fingertips and gently massage it onto the breasts. Find an acne-fighting product with ingredients such as salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and sulfur. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry with a clean, soft towel.Step 4


    Sanitize the stainless-steel extraction tool with rubbing alcohol. Place the smaller end of the extractor directly over the blackhead. Gently but firmly press down to release the blackhead. Blackheads that protrude from the skin will easily dislodge; anything deeper needs more time and should not be forced.Step 5


    Saturate a cotton ball with a toner that contains ingredients to help reduce oil production, such as alcohol, witch hazel or tea tree oil. Swipe the cotton ball along the breast area where blackheads appear.Step 6


    Squeeze a dime-sized amount of benzoyl peroxide onto your fingertip. Carefully rub the medicine onto the affected area. Allow it to dry a few minutes before getting dressed.Things You'll Need
    • Acne-fighting clay mask
    • Acne cleanser
    • Towel
    • Stainless steel extraction tool
    • Alcohol
    • Cotton ball
    • Toner
    • Benzoyl peroxide

    Tips
    • Visit a board-certified dermatologist if blackheads persist or become worse. Prescription medications and stronger retinoids may help.

    Warnings
    • Refrain from rubbing your skin with a towel. This can spread the blackheads and worsen existing acne. Cleansing the area more than twice a day can aggravate the skin. Never squeeze blackheads with your fingertips or use a sharp object, like a needle, for removal. Benzoyl peroxide has bleaching agents. Wash your hands thoroughly after use, and make sure the skin is completely dry before getting dressed.
