Blackheads

Should you squeeze blackheads to get them out of your pores?

No. Squeezing spots or blackheads spreads bacteria under the skin leading to further breakouts. It delays healing time and may lead to secondary infection and even permanent scarring.
If over the counter products are of limited benefit see your doctor for a topical synthetic retinoid such as Adapalene which is very effective against spots and blackheads.
Eloise.

Dont squeez them, it leaves little holes. The best thing to do is turn on a tap make the water extremly hot, and put your face near the steam, untill you start sweating from it, then wash your face after with acne cream.
The steam will open your pours, and after 1-2 weeks, they will be gone.
Just dont miss a day.
