How to get rid of blackheads on nose


Don’t leave blackheads alone

Don’t listen to anyone who tells you to leave them alone! Unlike whiteheads, they won’t go away in time without you doing something about them. In fact, blackheads will continue to grow, stretching the pore they sit in until removed. If the pore is stretched excessively wide, it won’t spring back to its normal size and will leave an open pit on the surface of your skin for ever more. These pits can then be troublesome themselves as they easily become clogged with dead skin cells, makeup and impurities on your skin, so beginning the cycle of new blackheads once more.

Follow our 10 top tips for how to get rid of blackheads on your nose – 4 easy ways to remove blackheads once you’ve got them, and 6 recommendations to do regularly to prevent blackheads becoming a problem in the future. Use all 10 tips and free your face from blackheads!

The best 4 ways to get rid of blackheads on your nose

  1. Steam your face to open the pores (either over a bowl of boiling water and a towel over your head or invest in a facial steamer)

  2. Use a blackhead extractor tool to remove the blackheads (NOT YOUR FINGERS!)

  3. Use a blackhead peel mask or blackhead removal nose strips to pull out smaller blackheads before they become noticeable

  4. Use a handheld microdermabrasion device to literally blast blackheads out of their pores.

The best 6 ways to prevent blackheads in the future

  1. Wash your face thoroughly at least twice a day

  2. Exfoliate twice a week to remove dead skin cells

  3. Use an oil based cleanser to break up makeup left on your skin

  4. Use a clay mask regularly to remove excess oils and impurities from your skin

  5. Use products which specifically contain retinoids and/or salicylic acid.  – retinoids increase skin cell turnover and Salicylic acid breaks up dead skin cells before they can clog pores and cause blackheads.

  6. Use a good quality moisturizer to keep the moisture balance in your skin stable. Many of the treatments above dry out the skin. This makes it flaky so bits slough off and clog your pores.

So, now you know how to get rid of blackheads on nose issues. Don’t worry though, even starting with a few of the 10 items above will help. Good luck!
