How to get rid of blackheads on your nose is a frequently asked question as it is a very common place you will find blackheads on your skin. It is unfortunately one of the areas of your body which produces excess oil and that leads to blackheads. There's a number of products out there you can use to remove blackheads but is there anything specific you should do to get rid of blackheads on your nose? One thing you should never do is squeeze blackheads as you could be left with scars! You could also be left with an infection in your skin.

Things You Will Need

There's a few products out there that I would recommend when trying to find out how to get rid of blackheads on your nose. Firstly, the strips you can buy from your local pharmacy do work for some people. Biore Deep Cleansing Pore strips are one of the most popular brands. The items come in strips which are applied to your nose. After a few minutes the strip is removed with the idea being the blackheads are removed too. The strips typical contain tea tree oil, menthol and witch hazel which all help in getting the blackheads off your skin. It will also leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.

Exfoliating face scrubs are also an option to help remove blackheads from your nose. This can be used in conjunction with the nose strips to clear up any outstanding blackheads which the strips failed to remove. Exfoliating face scrubs should be used as part of a good skin care routine in any case and can be helpful for preventing whiteheads, blackheads and general acne. I would always recommend using an exfoliating wash even if you do not suffer from any of these conditions. Remember that this should only be done twice a week as it can be quite rough on your skin.
In conclusion I'd recommend a combination of the Biore cleansing strips and an exfoliating face wash to get rid of blackheads on your nose. Used together they can be quite a successful partnership in eliminating blackheads from your skin. Don't give up too soon if you don't see immediate results. Give it at least two weeks to have a proper effect on your skin. Some people may find it works quicker but give it at least this time period to decide if this method is working for you or not.

Tips & Warnings

Don't exfoliate too much! I myself have done this and it can lead to skin irritation. Quite often I'm left with dry skin where they facial scrub has been too strong for my skin type. Applying some moisturizer soon fixes this. I would not recommend using a exfoliating face wash more than twice a week. The nose strips should not cause any irritation to your skin so you can use this more frequently if you feel you would benefit from this. I have recommended Biore strips but the own brand of your local pharmacy will also work just as well and will no doubt contain all the same active ingredients as the leading name brand.
