I’ve been looking for tips, tricks and anything else that might just get rid of the blackheads at the end of my nose. Unfortunately I can’t seem to get rid of them!
I’ve always been advised to use toner as this is supposed to minimize the pores after cleansing, which I’ve been doing however there’s no point toning anything if you don’t get rid of the actual impurities that are stuck in your pores! That’s probably one of the reasons why I can’t seem to get rid of mine!
I’ve been doing a little bit of digging! (research on the internet that is – ok I did try some of that kind of digging but we all know that never ends well). Anyway an interesting bit of info was that one of the causes of blackheads was sebum oxidising with the dead skin on your nose.
I definitely neglect exfoliating that part of my face. So I’m doing to try gently removing dead skin with ‘Cure Aqua Gel’. It’s a great gel that you rub on your skin. It’s gently removes dead skin with being abrasive! So it’s perfect for the face.
In conjunction with that I’m going to try Sanctuary’s 5 minute thermal detox mask. The intense heat when first applied feels really great. I’m not sure if it’s actually opening up with pores and making it easier to extract black heads but we’ll see!
For actual extraction of blackheads I’ve always tried to use biore nose strips. The only problem with this is that no matter how wet I make my nose, the nose strip always lifts off in the end and thus the nose strip loses contact with my skin and so no blackheads get removed. So I find it a failure for the most part.
But let’s see how my method goes!
