How to Get Rid of Acne on Nose

 Acne on the nose

If there’s one part of our face that usually receives a lot of attention that would be our nose. Why wouldn’t it? The nose is obviously located at the center of our face making it easily seen. Men and women all over the world has understood the importance of the nose in a person’s facial beauty that it usually gets the most surgical attention. Anyone care for a nose job?

But even if you’re not that conscious and vain enough to get your nose done, for sure you still wouldn’t want anything going wrong with it, like an appearance of acne perhaps? Our nose is included in our T-zone, an area of our face that produces the most sebum and is very prone to acne. Aside from the nose, the forehead and chin are the rest that form this pimple prone area.

Acne as we know it has various forms. It’s not always that little red bump or zit that we so commonly associate it too. Other forms of acne also include whiteheads and blackheads. These are the types of acne that usually love to appear on our nose. They are very much annoying because they don’t just grow once; they love to keep on coming back.

However you can definitely battle against these nasty acne and clear your nose from any unwanted zits, whiteheads or blackheads. If you are suffering with a zit, your goal is to dry it out. Wash your face clean with a gentle cleanser. Try using natural remedies first such as lemon juice or toothpaste. Lemon juice has citric acid that dries out pimples. Squeeze an ample amount and use a cotton ball to apply it over your zit. You can also cover it with a small dot of menthol toothpaste. Toothpaste helps dry out pimples as well. These don’t promise overnight results but with continuous application, you will see an improvement.

You can also use spot treatments that contain salicylic acid and/or benzoyl peroxide. As you treat your zit on your nose, avoid too much sun exposure because it worsens acne. If your zit has a pus, you can also try using a pimple patch to remove it overnight. If your nose’ acne problem is more on whiteheads and blackheads, there is a different set of treatment for that.

Whiteheads and blackheads are usually stubborn and have the possibility to keep on coming back. Do away with your nose strips because they don’t do a lot of magic. Instead, wash your face twice a day with a gentle facial cleanser and apply salicylic gels and benzoyl peroxide creams. Both are proven to help get rid of acne. You can also use retinoid creams since they help a lot in unclogging pores. Gently remove your whiteheads and blackheads using an extractor. If this takes a lot of effort from you and if you have the money anyway, have it removed during a facial spa.

The important thing to remember about clearing your nose off of acne is to prevent oil build up and avoiding comedogenic products. Use oil blotting papers, wash your face daily and choose the right make-up.
