What You Need to Know About Nose Care

You are probably doing whatever you can to take good care of your skin and especially your moody nose. But you’re still wondering if there are any better options…well, one thing is sure, natural is best. Here is a list of the best tips we gathered for you.

Essential oils for blackheads: yes or no?

Basically, it is said that oil treatments should not be applied on a skin with acne, blackheads and whiteheads. Since oil tends to accumulate in the hair follicles, it is not a good idea to apply additional oil. But essential oils cannot be treated as ordinary oils. They work really differently. Every essential oil has its own specialty, though. Some essential oils can be used for some problem but not for another one. For blackheads, the essential oils we recommend are: tea tree oil, lavender essential oil, lemongrass essential oil. These are the top essential oils you definitely need to try if you are tired of costly creams and ointments that do not really work well on your skin.

Best face masks for blackheads:

There are plenty of natural masks available to treat blackheads. Here are two extremely easy masks that do not require you to make too much of an effort.

  • Mix a tablespoon of baking soda in a little water in order to make a paste. Apply it and leave it on the area for then minutes. Wash it. The result is mind-blowing.
  • Cook a little oatmeal in water. Let it cool. Apply it on the area and leave it there for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash it. Chances are you will start loving oatmeal for the effect is has on your skin.

Note that you should always wash your skin with lukewarm after applying a mask.

How to pop blackheads on nose?

The best way to remove your blackheads from your nose is to keep a perfect skin care routine. Wash it, cleanse it and scrub it regularly. Not too often, though, as this might stimulate the sebum to get produced in even bigger quantities. Apply DIY masks as well, as it will make it easy for you to pop just a few blackheads left here and there. If you try to pop your blackheads, do it properly. Most probably, the area affected is your nose. So, remove any makeup you are wearing, wash your nose thoroughly and give it a good steam for 10 to 20 minutes. While you give your nose a good steam, apply moisturizer in order to seal the heat. Apply a little plastic film over the moisturizer, as well as a thick hot piece of cloth. All this should considerably help to seal the heat and prepare your skin by making it softer and more receptive to the next step (the removal). Then, cover both your indexes with tissue paper and start squeezing your blackheads. Do not press your fingers on the blackheads directly, but around them. Narrow your indexes to each other very slowly and the blackhead will pop. Never use tweezers or your nails because you might attract germs and end up doing yourself more harm than good.
