Which Blackheads Should You Be Squeezing?
Some blackheads really do benefit from a good squeeze. The ones to concentrate on are the old ones – extra ‘black’ and stubborn.
Squeezing them is a way to get rid of them instantly, and if/when that pore fills up again it will be softer and much easier to treat.
Because you’ll be dissolving them with the right exfoliation, this will help the process along.
It’s like pushing the reset button on the plug – it’s always going to be easier to treat one that’s soft and newly formed, rather than one that’s been around for a while and really ‘settled’ in.
However, don’t be tempted to squeeze every blackhead you see.
Some will be too small and partially covered by the pore’s opening, so squeezing will just damage the surrounding skin…
