If only problem blackheads were a problem that people only get on the soles of their feet, we would not be involved in such a quest to find a product to get rid of them fast! But as the most likely place to find them is on the nose, the phrase “how to get rid of blackheads on nose” typed into Google will return around 831,000 results – so there has got to be the right answer in there – somewhere!
It is an unfortunate fact that the most likely place to get problem blackheads is right on the T zone of the face and right where they are most visible and prominent. So, if you need to find out how to get rid of blackheads on nose (or anywhere else for that matter), you could start trawling through all those pages or you could just follow the simple steps below as you really do not need to spend a lot of money on expensive treatments if you have otherwise healthy skin but have just been plagued by blackheads on the oilier parts of your face.
The first step might sound rather strange as it has nothing to do with what you put on your skin, it is about getting your stress levels down and maybe making some changes to your work-life balance. I know this is easier said than done, when we are all leading hectic lives and sometimes we feel like that little hamster, running round on a wheel all day and getting nowhere! But if you can reduce your stress levels, you will improve your skin because stress causes a hormonal imbalance within our bodies and this is a major factor in the sebaceous glands going into a sort of ‘overdrive’ and producing too much oil. Because this excess oil getting clogged in the pores is the cause of blackheads in the first place, reducing the amount of oil your skin produces will definitely help the problem.
Next think about your skin and especially the skin on your face. Think about the products and makeup you put on it on a daily basis. When was the last time your skin was totally clear of any skin care products or makeup with your pores open to fresh air? Giving your skin a day off from makeup on a regular basis will really help your complexion, as will only using oil-free products that are as free of any chemical additives as you can manage. Making sure you thoroughly cleanse your face every night, without fail, no matter how tired you are will also help your skin to recover from the effects of the day whilst you sleep.
Facial Steaming is a great Treatment for Blackheads on Nose and T Zone
The two steps mentioned above will both help your skin in the long run, but to get rid of the problem blackheads on nose that you already have – and any elsewhere on your face, facial steaming is a great way to start the process.
This is because the steam will open the pores and soften the hardened plug of sebum and dead skin cells that form the blackheads clogging them. This softening process will help loosen the blackheads too and make any method you choose to remove them, whether this is using a blackhead dissolver, pore strips or a blackhead extractor tool, that much more effective.
What you must never do is to keep trying to remove these blemishes if they are not ready to come out as all you will do is inflame the area, possibly setting up an infection so that what you are left with is a big red, sore place that looks even worse than the blemishes you were trying to remove.
If you are serious about how to get rid of problem blackheads on nose and T Zone, take the steps mentioned above and are serious about reducing your stress, being careful about what you put on your skin and treating your skin gently when you are trying to remove blackheads, you will definitely see improvements in your complexion and with a little perseverance, you will be successful.
