Clogged nose pores are so common in both men and women that it is a wonder that there is still not a definitive cure for this problem.
There are however many things you can do not only to get rid of the blocked pores you already have but even better, to prevent them getting clogged again in the future.
First of all, what causes clogged nose pores?
Our skin produces an oily substance called sebum which is what stops our skin from drying out.
Unfortunately, hormonal changes in our teenage years, atmospheric pollutants and a whole host of other factors can cause our skin to produce excess sebum. In addition, we may make the problem worse by using the wrong products on our skin.
Oil and dead skin debris block the pores (also called follicles) and form a firm plug. This starts out as a whitehead, but develops into a blackhead due to oxidisation when the clogging plug is exposed to the air at the skin surface. Infection may also develop, causing acne breakouts and blemishes on the skin.
Preventative treatment includes a good twice-daily skin care routine using products that do not add more oil to your skin. An open comodone is another name for a blackhead, so look for the wording ‘non-comodogenic’ or ‘noncomodogenic’ on the packaging as this means that the product will not clog your pores.
How To Get Rid Of Clogged Nose Pores
Natural products that you take orally such as Acneticin are also a good way of ensuring that your body is getting all the nutrients it needs for healthy skin.
Exfoliating at least once a week helps to take away the dead skin cells that would otherwise block your pores.
Using a clay mask weekly after a shower when the little plugs have been softened will literally suck out the contents – a great method of blackhead removal!
Follow with a toner and a noncomodogenic moisturizer.
Manual extraction of blackheads is another option; you can use vacuum blackhead removal, an extraction tool or pore strips. Another solution is to use a blackhead dissolver which ‘melts’ the contents of your pores, allowing your skin to regain it’s clean and clear appearance.
The absolute best way to deal with clogged nose pores is to ensure that you maintain a good skin care routine and only use products on your skin that will not cause you more problems. If you have persistent, hard to remove blackheads, a visit to a dermatologist or a beautician may help you to get on top of the problem so that your maintenance routine will keep them at bay.
