FAQ - Face

The red tiny bumps are caused by inflammation around the hair follicles. To avoid this and lessen your discomfort, be sure to always use a shaving gel or cream and use a sharp razor. Another trick to try is to wait a few minutes after you get into the shower to begin shaving. The warm water will open pores and soften the hairs making them easier to remove. Shave in the direction of hair growth and follow up with lotion after showering. Sometimes the hair will curl into the skin and grow in the wrong direction, creating an “ingrown hair”. To remove ingrown hair, we suggest using Tweezeman's Ingrown Hair/Splintertweeze.

Pores that get clogged with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria can create a blackish plug of material called a blackhead. With blackheads the pore stays open which is why after a steam facial that helps open your pores further, blackheads are easy to remove with a quality skin care tool.

First, remember not to pick at blemishes. This can lead to irritation, infection and possible scarring. When in doubt about how to treat blackheads or whiteheads, consult a dermatologist for advice. You might also consider Tweezerman’s Skin Care Tool, designed for gentle removal of whiteheads and blackheads. For best results, use after a shower, after steaming your face or using a hot washcloth to first soften blackheads and whiteheads making them easier to remove.
