To make blackheads in ear removal easy, here are some steps which you can follow while you are at home. They will only apply if the blackhead is on your outer ear.

Step 1: Cleanse your ear with a mild acne wash

With a mild acne wash, cleanse your ears to remove dirt, wax, dead skin cell and oil from your ear hair and skin and rinse off with warm water. This will give you a clearer view of the blackhead you want to remove.

Step 2: Apply warm compress

Apply a warm compress on ears. Press the warm washcloth against a blackhead you want to remove a several times to make your pores expand as well as loosen materials clogged in the pore.

Step 3: Soak the blackhead with alcohol

Soak a cotton swab, ball or pad on alcohol and apply it on your blackhead to sterilize the area and kill bacteria. Alcohol kills bacteria and gives you a clean surface.

Step 4: Squeeze the blackhead

With sterilized latex gloves or a tissue around your index fingers, apply pressure some pressure on either side of your blackhead gently as you squeeze down then up to remove the blocking material. Wipe off the stuff that comes out the popped blackhead.

Step 5: Apply an anti-acne cream

Apply any good anti-acne cream such as benzoyl peroxide to help shrink and heal the pore. This will prevent bacteria entry. You can alternatively use tea tree oil and leave it there overnight
