Start with the chin: with the pads of the index, middle and ring fingers of both hands, lightly press (there should be no discomfort or pain), hold for a few seconds and carefully remove from the face. At this moment, a kind of vacuum is created under the pressure of the fingers, pulling sebum plugs and black spots from the pores. At the same time, the skin is filled with oxygen.
