This SKIN CARE TOOL is specially designed to extract blackheads and whiteheads safely and effectively. It is recommended that you use this tool after a steamy shower, facial sauna, or after applying a warm towel to the affected area. This opens the pores and prepares skin for treatment. DIRECTIONS: Before use, make sure to disinfect and sterilize the tool with an alcohol-treated cotton swab. Make sure hands are washed and thoroughly clean. For whiteheads, wait until the whitehead matures and breaks open the skin. Then use the flat side to gently roll out the whitehead. For blackheads, press down the thin loop side directly over blackhead to gently remove. After use, clean and disinfect the treated area on the skin. CARE HINTS: Please clean off the skin care tool with an alcohol swab after use as well. Store and protect the implement in the original storage tube that came with this package.
