Seeing a blackhead, or whitehead for that matter, pop up on your skin is the worst. You know you shouldn’t pick at it with your fingers because you can create a scar or make the spot even bigger. But if you can’t get to a dermatologist and you want it gone, what do you do? Blackhead extraction kits can help, as long as you’re careful and gentle with your skin. Grab some medical-grade alcohol and a bright light and let’s get started.

If you prefer to go the electric route, there are stellar electric blackhead remover vacuum cleaners that will quite literally suction out the offender right before your eyes. Of course, you have to be careful and keep the setting low and follow the directions perfectly. We wouldn’t want to make the pimple worse and have to head to the dermatologist anyway.

Maybe you’d rather skip the electronics and remove a pimple with the type of tools the professionals use. Again, being super gentle, you can use a stainless steel blackhead extractor to get at all those stubborn dots deep in the skin. These kits also come with tweezers and other tools so you can find the right one for your specific skin issue. Shop some of the best ones, below.
