Zits and Blackheads - November 26th 2010, 11:00 PM

So most of the time I have really clear skin, I've never had bad acne. But, I'll usually get one or two big zits on my face and I'm not sure what to use to get rid of them. I don't need a harsh cleanser, just something to get rid of a few pimples.

Also, I have lots of little blackheads on my nose, does anybody know of a good product to treat it?

I don't like to wear make up, so concealer isn't an option.

Any tips on how to clear this up?

I use Clean&Clear blackhead cleanser, every day if I remember. I still get horrible blackheads though but for big zits I use tea tree oil, it takes a while to clear it up but that usually works just be warned it stings a little.

I have lots of little blackheads on my nose as well! I try to exfoliate a few times a week. Olay makes a good scrub you can use daily. I also use mineral make-up as I find it helps my skin to "breathe" and it also covers really well.

Thanks for your help!

I'll definately give those a try.

Im not sure if they have it there, but there are little tubes of cream called clearasil pimple treatment cream. Its only a little tube and its only something you have to apply to get rid of existing pimples.
Here's the link to the NZ website, you may have something similar where ever you are from http://clearasil.co.nz/product_pimpl...ment_extra.php

I know you dont like concealers, but I have this little thing and its called T-Zone two tone clear up concealer, it looks like a lipstick, and one half is green, one half is skin colour. You apply them over the pimples (I use green at night, as no one sees my face - but skin colour in the day as it conceals it also) and it also hides them a bit. So instead of using make up which clogs up the skin, this is a pimple treatment concealer. I can't actually find a picture and I think they may have discontinued it, but there are other things out there like this
http://www.t-zone.co.uk/products.php...are&product=10


Oh yea, and the buggers on the nose! Try this http://www.t-zone.co.uk/products.php...are&product=10 . I've had these (well they look a bit different as i used ones from NZ) but you wet this little strip of stuff, then stick it on your nose, wait a while, then pull it off slowly...you can see the blackheads coming out onto the strip
