Blackheads and Ethnic Skin

Dealing with blackheads can be tricky because removing them without damaging the skin depends on so many factors. How long they’ve been in the skin, what daily regimen is used, if you’re  a person of color; these are all critical issues which come into play.   But one thing is for sure-the skin has be prepped accordingly prior to extraction. When you’re dealing with ethnic skin it is extremely important that the skin has been properly exfoliated and warmed first before attempting blackhead removal.

As a rule, I am not a big fan of using metal extractors for brown skin because the potential to cause damage and hyperpigmentation is great and generally not worth the risk.
