When I think of age old skin care tips, one particular piece of advice always sticks out in my mind...NEVER pop your pimples. We all know the reasons why pimple popping is an awful thing to do - It can irritate your skin! It can make the pimple bigger! Worst of all, it can end up infected! Yikes.
Even though I know all those things to be true, it never stopped me from popping a pimple because, let’s be honest, it just feels so good when you do. Plus, when done in the right way, it can get rid of your blemishes in no time at all.
What if I told you a safe and effective solution for popping pimples does exist? Life changing, right?! 

Whenever I get a whitehead or blackhead that must be popped I take out the only three things I need: my trusty light up vanity mirror, some rubbing alcohol, and my ArteStile Double Loop Comedone Extractor. Read below to find out what a comedone extractor is and our tips on using one that will show you how to get rid of pimples fast. 

 

So what exactly is a comedone extractor?
A comedone extractor is a pimple popping tool that safely extracts pimples. The ArteStile Comedone Extractor is made of stainless steel which is great for all skin types and easy to sanitize. It has two loops – a small thin loop for gently extracting whiteheads and a thicker flat loop to extract blackheads.

How do I use a comedone extractor?

Comedone Extractor, when used correctly, can extract your pimples much better and cleaner than two fingers ever will. Follow these instructions when using one:

  1. Only use the extractor on blackheads or whiteheads
  2. Always wash your face and disinfect your tools before you start.
  3. Open your pores by taking a hot shower or steaming your face. This helps soften the comedones and makes extracting easier.
  4. Always remember to be gentle when using one. We cannot stress this enough. 
  5. Place the loop around the whitehead or blackhead and press down lightly or rock the tool back and forth slowly to gently apply pressure on both sides and push the sebum out.
  6. If the sebum doesn’t release easily, leave it alone. Applying too much pressure can scar the skin.
  7. Sanitize your extractor once you are done to remove any debris.
  8. Apply an antibacterial ointment to the treated areas.

This tool is life changing and if you’re a rebellious pimple popper like me, it will change your life too! When used correctly it will appear as if you hardly had a blemish at all.
