when in desperation, i poke my BLACKHEADS with ...

Hello everyone,

Call me nuts if you must but sometimes when I look at myself in the mirror & find the Zillionth blackhead/pore/pimple, I simply cannot stand it.

So, in acts of desperation, I poke it out with a needle (my fingernails are short & stubby; never went for a manicure before).

I do this because I've used other products before & they just don't work for me all the time. Also, it's a quick fix. Biore pore strips, Za "pore buster" (not sure the product name), clearasil, ... Did it, done it, been there.

A needle? Wow....be careful with that. I would make sure to disinfect the needle before poking at least. Do you do that?

Nope, I don't. Just use a dry tissue to wipe a new sewing needle everytime. Works wonders, though I still can't get rid of my blackheads; a recurring nightmare.

hey i did that a few times actually! i thought i was wierd.

it can be quite addictive isn't it.

BUT PEOPLE DO NOT START DOING THIS

For one, the skin goes flakey around it, sometimes they can turn into cysts when this happens!

Well, you are braver than me. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Ugh, blackheads. Nothing gets rid of those things for very long. I always thought that if someone could at least come up with a way to cure blackheads forever that they would become REALLY wealthy.
