BOBBY PIN METHOD

EDIT: I waited an entire week before doing the below extractions! I really wanted to show you the effectiveness (and the REAL accumulation) of cleaning it out this way. If you do this every night, it won't be as dramatic! :)

*******


What's good ya'll? :)

Here is the infamous entry I was suppose to post a little while back when I bought a Japanese "utensil" that extracts whiteheads and blackheads from your pores. I mentioned that that particular product was a bit painful compared to my bobby pin method because the extracting head was more of a thin wire. A bobby pin is thicker at the eyelet thus making it a bit more bearable when extracting.

Be warned with the photos below... FACE POOP is never cute! LMAO.

Here are a few tips if you decide to try this out!
  • Only do this right after you wash your face with warm/hot water; you need your pores to be open.
  • I also suggest doing this right after you get out of the shower.
  • Please use the right amount of pressure for YOUR skin/pain tolerance!
  • Use a toner or astringent after extracting to help further clean your pores.
*Readers: If you can do me a favor and let me know - if you should decide to try this - how it worked for you! Pictures are optional! LOL!











*Embarrassed* I hope I didn't scare ya'll off!!! (O_o) Bein' pretty ain't pretty right?! LOL In all, I hope this was helpful in some shape or form! XOXO ~L

  17. Hi just dropping by!

    What a good idea using bobby pins to get all the gunk out!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Have you tried using the loopy end of a safety pin? It's thicker and rounder than the loopy end of a bobby pin. I find that much more comfortable. LOL...Kudos to you for posting those pics up! You're definitely keeping it real!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. OMG!! Thank you so much L~~~~ I'm always troubled by all that gunk! Now I know how to get rid of them! <3

    xoxo!

  21. wow! i am so going to try this. I've never extracted on my own. But every once in awhile when i get facials they'll use the extractors and it hurts like beee-eye-itch. I'll have to try it probably tonight.

  23. Girl! I did this today on a stubborn deep clogged pore in the crevice of my nose and it worked like a charm! I love it...face poop. I tend to just squeeze the my pores with my fingers wrapped in tissue and that works well, except for the crevices! Thanks for the cheap tip and for providing us with pics of your face poo. LoL!

  27. Gross, but yet so satisfying to see the end product. I don't do extractions often, but since I bought the Tweezerman tool, I figure I should at least put it to good use.

    ReplyDelete
