Does anyone have any other ideas on large pores and potential blackheads on nose? (im not sure it is these tbh but any advice grateful)
I did try a sample of Paula's Choice for a few days, prob not long enough i know, but nothing happened?
Maybe I should get a full bottle of this and bite the bullet?
Is there such a solution out there that would reduce pores on nose, instead of me trying all the 'blackhead' removers? This maybe a better choice as after using exfoliating scrubs on nose/face and pore strips, nothing seems to be coming off, thinking that maybe these aren't BH's but its the impression of open pores and the 'pitted nose' look that is my problem
Blackhead is a blackish bump or plug on the skin and is a type of acne vulgaris. It is caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the sebaceous gland's duct.
Cleanse the area thoroughly and apply a good mild exfoliating scrub on that. Apply a medicated cream or gel containing resorcinol, salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. This helps is soaking the oil and helps in peeling away the blackheads. If benzoyl peroxide leaves your skin dry, apply an oil-free moisturizer after 10 mins of applying benzoyl peroxide. Large pores of skin can be easily dealt with proper cleansing and frequent toning and moisturizing of the skin. Other treatments to consider include microdermabrasion, skin resurfacing lasers and chemical skin peels.
Nose and the nasal septum is composed of thick cartilage and the pores of skin inside and outside the nose are different. Hence plucking hair inside the nose will not cause any ingrown hair or blackheads outside the nose.
