Believe it or not, there are ways you can hygienically extract pimples! So many people live with acne and spend serious amounts of time, money and energy trying to improve their skin and get rid of their spots. Even if they are successful there can be another problem left in its place: acne scarring. Which people then spend serious amounts of time, money and energy trying to improve. But with the right acne removal tool it doesn’t have to be this way.

The comedone extractor is a specialised pimple popper. The looped ends go around the spot and when you apply a gentle pressure the spot is squeezed – cleanly and quickly. The best comedone extractors are dual tipped, with one loop on each end. The loops are different sizes so they can fit snugly round both large and small spots, whiteheads or blackheads.

A proper acne removal tool is a far better choice than using your fingers to squeeze or pick at the spot. If you use your fingers they can introduce dirt and bacteria into the spot – which can make the spot worse. So a comedone extractor is far more hygienic.
