The most frequent inquiry in the "beauty pages" of the papers
is what to do for blackheads. In the first place, don't allow yourself to
get them. Keep your face clean. A blackhead is simply a pore that is
filled with oil and dirt. Sometimes they are as large as the head of a
pin. When taken out they leave an enlargement known as a coarse pore. Do
not steam the face to remove them. Wash the face well with soap and hot
water; wring cloths out of hot water and hold to the face then massage
with cold cream. Several treatments will soften them so they may be
pinched out between the thumbs. Never attempt this treatment before going
out; do it at night, before retiring.

Blackheads are a reflection upon one's personal cleanliness, therefore
bathe the whole body often.
