There is nothing worse than a bunch of black dots in the middle of the nose. Blackheads can effectively ruin the flawless skin and beautiful make-up dream. Can you get rid of them somehow?
There are plenty of ways to eliminate blackheads. You just need to choose the approach accordingly to how deep and big are blackheads and what are your resources (either as to the time or budget). If the black dots on your nose are also your problem, here is a handful of ideas as to how to eliminate them.
How to get rid of blackheads fast? Using cosmetics available in the drugstore, obviously. You can choose from, e.g. exfoliators (both the mechanical like a facial scrub and enzymatic exfoliators) and cleansing face masks. The ones believed to be most effective are peel-off face masks which after application solidify and when you take it down they pull out the impurities from the pores. The effect can be seen right away.
At-home methods for blackheads
The more affordable option, as an alternative to cosmetics, are at-home methods and here you have as many possibilities. You can use homemade scrubs based on oils (choose them carefully to avoid additional clogging of your pores), but you can also prepare your own face masks, also the peel-off version. How to do that? Here are a couple of ideas.
1. Face mask with baking soda
Baking soda mixed with water makes effectively cleansing the paste for your skin. When applied to the nose and rubbed using a toothbrush (a clean one!), you will see that it is a simple way to get rid of blackheads. Massage the skin for 2 minutes then rinse it and apply toner or serum to close the pores. However, keep in mind that baking soda holds very strong action and rises your skin’s pH so it can make skin dry and irritated. For this reason, it is advised to use a baking soda mask only once in a while and not on a regular basis.
2. Peel-off face mask with an egg
Blackheads on the nose can be easily eliminated with egg whites. You just need to whip them a bit and then apply them to clean and dry skin just to the areas covered with blackheads. On each layer of egg white, you need to place a single strip of the tissue and then put some more egg whites on the top. This way, you will create a sort of tape that when dries can be stripped off the nose and pulled out the blackheads.
Lately, very popular became so-called blackhead vacuum. Those are gadgets that are not that easy to get at any store so you should get one online. It is worth it because this gadget has proven effective in removing unwanted blackheads. How does it work?
Blackheads vacuum resembles a thick pen of sorts and its tip is placed against the skin. It creates suction that pulls out the impurities stuck in pores. Blackheads are being eliminated and skin left clean. Attention! It is not a good fit for people with sensitive, acne, or couperose skin because it can then create irritations and unwanted complications such as broken veins.
Don’t forget about the steam!
It is a beauty treatment that should be considered before proceeding with cleansing. The steam for the face will open the pores (you can some aromatic oils to it). A short session with your head over hot water is just what you need to make removing the blackheads way easier. The blackheads on your nose will pop out in no time!
