Who knew we had so much sebum in our skin?!
If the last five minutes have put you in the mood for some blackhead removal of your own (*frantically raises hands*), we suggest seeking professional help. Extraction facials are the way to go, during which your skin therapist will manually extract the gunk from blemishes and blackheads, with the help of hot steam and purpose-designed, sanitised tools.
Terrified by the mere thought? Try the below at-home skin saviours instead.
