How to get rid of calcium deposits under the eyes

Removing calcium deposits is not always recommended, depending on the size of the calcium deposits and on the person. Calcium deposits in the pores of the face under the eyes can be especially difficult and painful to remove. Before trying to remove the calcium deposits, ask a doctor or medical professional for advice on your specific case.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Boil about 2 litres (2 quarts) of water.

  2. 2

    After the water has cooled enough for you to touch it, but is still extremely hot, dip the cloth into the water and get it completely wet. Then, wring the cloth out quickly, so it is still very hot, but now only moist, and not dripping water.

  3. 3

    Apply the hot cloth to the calcium deposits. If the cloth drips, ring it out until it doesn't. Keep the cloth on the calcium deposits until it loses all of its heat.

  4. 4

    Using your thumbs, gently squeeze the skin around the calcium deposit that you want to evacuate. It should come out of the pore relatively easily, as you've opened the pores with the steam from the cloth.

  5. 5

    If the calcium deposit or deposits are not coming out after a few gentle squeezes, wet a paper towel, wring it out, and put it in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds, until steaming.

  6. 6

    Once the paper towel cools enough for you to handle it, apply the paper towel to your face until it loses all heat.

  7. 7

    Gently squeeze the calcium deposits using your thumbs.

  8. 8

    Another option is to use a facial steamer to open the pores, instead of a cloth or a paper towel.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure the cloth or paper towel is cool enough for you to handle -- you can seriously burn yourself if it's too hot.
