Hi Wax Pot...I do quite a few facials, including on my 16 year old son who has plenty of blackheads...I think they are an important part of a facial, it's something we can do for our clients much better than the can do for themselves. I use a mask after cleansing that is Tu'el Enzyme mask with a couple pumps of their glycol and a bit of water. I keep the client under steam to make the mask easier to remove and open the pores. It exfoliates and makes the skin very ready for easy extraction. I love doing facials, it makes the client feel so good and you can sell a consumable product. Have fun!!
