Position the fingers on each side of the blackhead. Squeeze and stretch the pore gently for a couple of times to ease up the pore and then squeeze with a little pressure.

Guide to a Blackhead Extractor Tool:
A Blackhead Extractor Tool is about the size of your hand and is not a heavy and gigantic tool. It is made of stainless steels and consists of two loops on each end. It works manually, the bigger loop targets the whole plug while the smaller loop targets one blackhead. Keep the loop on the blackhead and create pressure from one side and extract it out. Sometimes you don’t need to apply much pressure, just a little squeeze works too.
How to prevent blackheads from coming back?
Use a toner and dab it on the areas where there were blackheads. When blackheads come out they allow you to see open pores, these pores can fill up with dirt again and can cause blackheads again so to avoid that use salicylic acid. It will go deep down and clean your pores, therefore pores will shrink and will not clog up.
In order to refine open pores use astringent, these pores will then get eased up and pacify. Do not expect to close your pores as a pore never closes even after producing hair. Lemon juice can work as an astringent but be careful, do not apply lemon juice in its pure form, mix it with water first then apply to the respective area. Rub it until it dries because if it stays there in liquid form it might cause a burn.
