What is Skin Gritting?
Skin gritting is an at-home method that removes blackheads using a 3 step process of oil cleansing, clay masks, and a facial massage. But does skin gritting work, and is it safe? According to experts, removing blackheads and unclogging pores with clay masks is possible. However, pore extractions should generally be left to the professionals for the best results. There may also be risks associated with this technique for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin due to the use of oils, acids, and masks, which can all irritate and dry out the skin. If you understand the possible risks associated with this trend and still want to try it out for yourself, stick to once a week if you have normal skin or once a month if you have sensitive skin.
