Hey “BD beauties”!
Today I’m coming to you with another post under the category about acne. I genuinely type these posts out top you all because I suffer with acne myself. It’s always an ongoing battle trying out various products and also spending a lot on dermatologists. Before treating your acne you should always know how they are caused and also ways to control acne. Makeup for acne is also something you need to be vigilant on as everything you put on your face will have either a favourable or adverse reaction.
Black heads are another form of pimple which basically has dirt clogged in your pores thus being black in colour. These are kind of hard to control and will keep coming back if the extraction process is done in the wrong way. You need to extract black heads differently on your nose as opposed to the rest of your face.
How to remove blackheads on the nose?
Step 1: prepare your skin by washing your face with your normal cleanser so the dirt on top of your skin is removed.
Step 2: use a scrub to remove most of the black heads and also dead skin cells that lay on top of the skin preventing the black heads deep within from being extracted completely. I highly recommend the st. Ives apricot scrub for blemished skin! People swear by this product for removing black heads.
Step 3: fill in a pot of water and heat it up until it boils. Once it starts boiling, take it off the stove and place it on a stale area and steam your face with a towel over you for about 10 minutes.
Step 4: steaming will open up your pores and kill and bacteria so now since your pores are open, this is the time to treat our skin. Make a DIY skin pack with 4 table spoons of baking soda and about 2 table spoons of water (depending on the consistency). Apply this on your nose and let it dry for about 10 minutes and wash it off with warm water.
Step 5: now that you have prepped your nose and removed anything around or top of it, it’s time to extract. Using an extracting tool (you can purchase this is any beauty supply store or online but make sure to sanitize it) place the circle area on the blackhead and press it down gently to bring the black head up. I find the tool is way sanitary and also less aggressive as using your hands to pop the black head will make it go down even further.
Step 6: since your pores are still open after the extraction, close your pores using an alcohol free toner.
