🔪DIY trick using disposable floss picks and mouthwash. This trick helps to extract whiteheads and blackheads. This hack definitely works❗️If you try it, tag me 🤗 ♥️ ___________ ◾️All you need is a hot towel, floss pick, and toner. ___________ 1️⃣Take a towel and place it in hot water. Take the towel out and make sure it isn’t too hot. Also, make sure that the area is clean and place the towel on the problem area so that the heat will open up the pores. Do this for about 5 mins or so. 2️⃣Take the disposable floss pick and drag it in a scraping motion. This option is cheaper and less likely to scar you than using a metal extractor. Be sure to not over do it. 3️⃣When finished, rinse the area with a mild cleanser. 4️⃣Follow up with a toner (you can use rose water, mouthwash, or your regular toner.) ❗️If you have really sensitive skin don't use mouthwash or do a patch test first. 5️⃣Be sure to moisturize your nose after applying the toner. ———– Tag your bestie ♥️ 👻SNAPCHAT: A_LLURE7 _____________ @hudabeauty @monakattan @alyakattan #hudabeauty #hairmakeupdiary #facemask #skincare #makeuptutorial #fashionarttut #laurag_143 #sukhimann_ #instadaily #instalike #instamood #instafashion #chico #fashion #instamakeup #indianvlogger #indianblogger #desibeautyblog #hudabeauty #allmordernmakeup #melformakeup #hypnaughtymakeup #inssta_makeup #makeupfanatic1 #brian_champagne #makeuptutorial #shimycatsmua #fakeupfix #associationofbeauty #hairmakeupdiary #liveglam #laurag_143 #brian_champagne
Beauty influencer Sukhi Mann uploaded a video of her newfound trick on Instagram, and the internet immediately went wild for the discovery of these unconventional tools.
The full tutorial is compromised of three steps to rid dirt of pores and remove excess sebum. First, Sukhi soaks a towel in hot water and places it over her T-zone for five minutes to ready pores for the coming extraction.
She then takes two flossing sticks and carefully scraps them down and around her nose, picking up sweat, dirt, and whatever else is clogging her pores.
As a final step, the beauty blogger soaks a cotton ball in mouth wash (Listerine, to be exact) and uses it as a makeshift toner, swabbing the freshly extracted area.
Easy peasy right? We’re definitely going to try this tonight!
