Blackheads.. - November 7th 2010, 09:13 PM

ON MY NOSE.

So, I have loads of little black head spots on my nose, they're only noticeable when you look up close, but they're annoying!

Does anyone have the same problem, and what do you do about it? Any good products you could advise to solve my nosey problem?

Thank you

Hey there,

I used to have this problem and then I started using a different face wash. I'd recommend trying out a specialist cream or face wash aimed at blackheads. Blackheads are basically caused by an excess of sebum, so you need to clear this to eradicate the blackheads. Blackheads themselves are made up of dead skin cells, mixed with dirt and bacteria that clog your skin cells. So it's pretty disgusting stuff.

I hope this helps.
Marie.

I hate my blackheads but I use nose pore strips and I finally found some that work

http://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Tea-Tr...e-Strips_8344/

Put a hot flannel over your nose for about 5 minutes to open the pores and then put the nose strip on or doing after a really hot shower. Your nose has to be wet though and you basically wait for it to dry...

You can actually see them working too because when you look at the strip you can see the blackheads stuck to it which is pretty gross...

These and exfoliating have got rid of most of mine.

Not really, only if you leave it on too long.
I fell asleep with one on once and it hurt to rip that one off...

Yes it does and a lot, I went to get them removed by dermatologist and it did hurt a lot especially in part next to the nose. But she did tell me that if I had come in before it would of hurt less, maybe you could try removing them before it's too late. Sorry if I scared you.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.
