How Remove Blackheads From the Face During a Sauna
Saunas are great for the skin. (beautiful young woman is relaxing in sauna image by NiDerLander from Fotolia.com)

When a pore clogged with dirt and oil -- is exposed to the oxygen in air -- the pore contents darken, becoming a blackhead. The dark blemishes are unattractive on the skin, so most people want to remove them as quickly as possible. Saunas are a great benefit to the skin; by opening the pores and allowing them to drain, the skin and the blackheads are softened. At that point, the blackheads are easier to remove.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Fill a pot with water and place it on the stove. Put two teaspoons of baking soda in the water. Bring the water to a boil. An alternative is to use a facial sauna purchased from a drugstore or online.

  2. 2

    Lean over the pot of boiling water for up to 10 minutes. Putting a towel on your head, to concentrate the steam on your face, is optional. The steam deep cleans the pores.

  3. 3

    Move away for the facial sauna or stove. Clean your hands with regular soap.

  4. 4

    Stand or sit in front of a mirror. Squeeze one of your blackheads, using your index finger and thumb. Continue to gently squeeze until the blackhead emerges. Squeeze all the remaining blackheads until they pop out.

  5. 5

    Push the round end of the blackhead extractor down on the blackhead until it pops out. The extractor removes difficult blackheads.

  6. 6

    Pour a liberal amount of hydrogen peroxide onto a cotton pad. Wipe the entire face. Hydrogen peroxide is an effective disinfectant.

Tips and warnings

  • Turn off the stove before leaning over the pot of boiling water.
