Learn exactly how to get rid of blackheads on your nose
Many people are stuck with blackheads, especially people who have acne prone skin. Even though blackheads aren’t unhealthy or dangerous, they aren’t very pretty and can make some people self-conscious. If you have oily skin, you risk having more blackheads, especially on your chin, nose and forehead, the famous T-zone. Thankfully, you can eliminate these blackheads with some simple and easy tricks. Discover exactly how to get rid of blackheads on your nose.
You should get in the habit of washing your face at least twice a day. This way, you’ll be able to remove the accumulation of dirt from your pores which is at the origin of your blackheads. Wash your face in the morning to remove all bacteria and before going to bed to remove the dirt as well as all traces of makeup. You should also wash your face after each workout to ensure you remove all traces of sweat from your skin.
Blackhead strips can help you quickly eliminate your blackheads. However, these strips only work well to remove new blackheads. If you’ve had blackheads on your nose for quite some time now, you should opt for another method to get rid of them.
Just like washing your face, also integrate exfoliation into your beauty routine twice a week (or three times if you have oily skin). This simple act will allow you to remove dead skin cells on your face that often clog the pores on your skin, which creates blackheads. Once you’ve exfoliated your skin, hydrate your skin with your favourite hydrating cream.
You obviously don’t need to spend the whole day trapped inside, especially in the middle of the summer but avoid exposing your skin to the sun from long periods of time especially if you haven’t applied sunscreen. Indeed, an overexposure to the sun can cause your skin to dry out but also become thicker, which is at the origin of blackheads.
Another way to get rid of blackheads is to apply a clay mask. It will help you remove the accumulated dirt from your skin. Just apply a mask on your skin for 15 minutes and rinse your face with lukewarm water, You can also use this mask during the night and target problematic areas. Make sure, however, that you choose a clay mask that contains many hydrating ingredients if you try this method.
The beauty products you use can obviously have a positive or negative effect on your skin. It is essential to pay attention to the ingredients that make up your beauty products. Know, for example, that comedogenic ingredients like coconut and soy oil tend to block the skin’s pores.
Your diet doesn’t create blackheads. However, you can reduce the risks of developing blackheads by adopting a healthy diet. Here are a few things you should remember to lower the risks of getting blackheads:
- Avoid sugary foods and beverages;
- Drink water;
- Reduce your consumption of alcohol and coffee.
When you’re buying your face cream, opt for a product that isn’t too oily, with quite a light texture made especially for people who have acne prone skin. This will help avoid getting more blackheads.
In sum, you can get rid of blackheads with some simple and effective tips and tricks. However, first and foremost, don’t touch your blackheads and don’t try to remove them with your fingers to avoid your blackheads from becoming blemishes or worst, scars. If you’re not able to eliminate them with these tricks, you can always talk to your dermatologist.
