According to New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, the flossing method can be effective in removing blackheads that are not as deeply rooted.
If the stitches do not come out, do not increase the pressure or use something more sharp like nails, because you can, damage, irritate and leave a scar on your skin.
In the video Mann applies mouthwash as a tonic, however before applying it to your skin carefully read the ingredients with which it is made. If you have methyl salicylate and ethanol, it is an anti-inflammatory and disinfectant that you could consider using; but if it contains methanol, it could cause a strong dermatitis, that is, a very serious allergic reaction.
