There’s nothing more annoying than blackheads, but 23-year-old Jacob Acosta has the method to make every blackhead disappear in the span of a few seconds.
Acosta, a cable dispatcher living in Los Angeles, posted a video of his speedy blackhead removal to YouTube. In the video, the 23-year-old is seen forcefully pushing up against his nose, successfully squeezing every single blackhead out. In the background, a woman can be heard saying “that is crazy."
“I was tired of poking the hell out of my nose and ended up pushing up against it with some force and a few of them had finally came out. So I decided to push with a bit more force and - bam - all the filaments started coming out,” Acosta told LADbible.
The 11-second-long video leaves viewers with a combination of disgust and satisfaction, and maybe even a hint of curiosity, but Acosta advises that his technique likely isn’t suitable for everyone.
“You would probably need some type of pain tolerance to get it done because there is a lot of pressure and it makes my eyes water at times."
Acosta claims that he only uses the technique about three or four times a year.
