How to Remove Blackheads With Duct Tape

Blackheads form when the skin's natural oil, also known as sebum, becomes trapped inside pores. The oil hardens inside the pores and appears as a tiny black dot on the face. Regular exfoliation can eliminate the occurrence of blackhead. For immediate removal, a sticky surface can help extract a blackhead.

  1. 1

    Splash water onto your face.

  2. 2

    Pour a dime-size amount of face soap that contains 2% salicylic acid into your hands.

  3. 3

    Massage the soap into your skin, concentrating on the patches of blackheads. This will later help the duct tape adhere to the actual blackhead.

  4. 4

    Wash the soap off of your face, and pat your skin dry with a towel.

  5. 5

    Cut strips of duct tape that will cover the areas of skin with blackheads.

  6. 6

    Place the strips onto your face. Rub your fingers over the tape so that it gets a good grip on your skin.

  7. 7

    Use one hand to pull your skin taut, and use the other hand to quickly pull off the tape.

  8. 8

    Repeat steps 5 through 7 until the blackheads come off.
