Aspirin mask followed by squeezing to reduce blackheads?
Posted 01 May 2009 - 12:36 AM
I have been using aspirin masks on my face every other day for about 2 weeks now. After I leave it on on my t-zone for 15 minutes, I scrub it off gently and then use my nails to squeeze/scrape the gunk out. I collected lots of whitish stuff on my nails that I believe are blackheads! I have seen videos where people just squeeze their nose and ribbons of white stuff come out http://www.youtube.c...h?v=wzwncLxFBlk. I don't know how hard one has to squeeze to get these things flowing out, mine just sorts of pops out and sits on top of the pores until my nails scrape them off. But I noticed that the pores are not so enlarged and that it works just as well as a blackhead strip, and the best is that I can do it often!
It is not an ideal solution but it is working for me right now. However, I have to say that because my skin is so oily, blackheads are always forming and I am never free of them. I stil have tons of blackheads but at least I am off the blackhead strips which are actually doing harm to my skin.

Well good luck in the long term. At least mix it with apple cider vinegar so you quit shocking your poor skin with the wrong pH in the first place.
To the original poster: a regular facial with an esthetician who is experienced with acne prone skin, AND a good at-home regimen will help reduce clogged pores.
