Is it okay to squeeze black heads?

If they are the really deep down kind, and you are not sure if they will come out, don't do it!!! I tried once and it turned into a huge cyst :wall: But if you know that they are near the top and will come out easily, I don't see any harm in squeezing them gently. I sometimes do and don't have any problems.

In my experience...NO!

I mean...u get some which will be satisfying squeezes.. but u get the "OMG wtf hav i done" squeeze now and then and thats the worst for black heads.

If you get one protruding out and you can just about pull it out..then it may be alright. Those you need to squeeze are usually premature, as they go too deep in.

Some would say its fine to squeeze it..but if you're like me and just cant stop pricking at pimples, its best not 2.

If they're close to the surface, I'd steam my face and use a Lacrosse extractor (they're at Rite-Aid in the section with manicure items).
