We’re glad you found us, we have a lot of information about blackhead remover and how it can help you get rid of those ugly-looking blackheads. In this article we are going to focus on nose pore strips. We will talk about what they are, why you should use them, the pros and cons and how to use them properly.
What Are Nose Pore Strips?
Blackhead removers, also known as nose strips or pore strips are made up of a piece of cotton paper and different kinds of medicated glue. The cotton paper is impregnated with the glue and then placed wetted onto your nose. The strip dries up in just a few minutes, tightly adhering to your skin and removing some of the dirt that clogs your pores along with it. They can be bought in stores or online in boxes containing multiple strips.
DO: Wash your face. Yes, it is important to keep your face clean especially if you have a lot of blackheads. Washing your face at least twice a day can help remove the dirt, oil and dead skin cells that can clog up your pores.
However, be careful not to wash your face too often as this may cause irritation and dryness. If you have oily skin, you may find that washing your face more than usual will help keep the oil levels on your skin under control.
DO: Use an exfoliator. Using a gentle exfoliator on a regular basis will help unclog your pores and remove any dead skin cells that could be contributing to the appearance of blackheads on your nose. Look for natural ingredients such as aloe vera, green tea extract and sea kelp in the products you use to exfoliate as these can also help soothe and calm the skin.
DO: Cleanse with steam once or twice a week. You can buy facial steamers from most beauty supply stores or alternatively, cleanse with steam at home by placing your head over a bowl of boiling water for about ten minutes with a towel over your head to trap in the steam (make sure you don’t get burned).

As you can see from the diagram above, blackheads are one of the mildest forms of acne. This is why they’re usually not treated.
That said, if you are using an over-the-counter product that has been designed to treat acne or it contains benzoyl peroxide, you should take extra care when using it on your nose. The skin there is sensitive and the product could irritate it.
If the blackheads are small and not too many, you can try these home remedies:
1) Rub a slice of lemon over your nose. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse with cool water.
2) Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with a little lemon juice to make a paste. Apply this to your nose and leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
3) Mix 1 tablespoon of groundnut oil with 1 teaspoon of lime juice, apply this to your nose and then rub gently with cotton wool dipped in warm water, this will help remove the blackheads. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Blackheads are a mild type of acne that appear as unsightly, open pores that appear darker than the skin surrounding them. They get their dark appearance from a skin pigment called melanin, which oxidizes and turns black when it’s exposed to the air. Blackheads aren’t caused by dirt, but by sebum (oil) and dead skin cells blocking the pore. If the pore remains open, it becomes a blackhead; if it’s completely blocked and closed, it turns into a whitehead.
Although blackheads are not physically dangerous, they are a source of emotional distress for many people. Because they cannot be squeezed (successfully) they can linger for months or even years. This guide will explain how you can get rid of your blackheads for good.
Have you ever pulled a blackhead out of your nose and then looked at it in the mirror, or even worse, in a magnifying mirror? I’m sure we all have! When you do this, does it make you cringe? It’s totally gross I know. But the thing is, even though you’ve removed one blackhead, new ones will appear in its place. You need to take good care of your skin by following a good skin care routine and washing your face regularly. If not done properly, blackheads will appear again and again.
Blackheads are like pimples in that they are both caused by clogged pores. The main difference is that blackheads are open comedones whereas pimples are closed comedones. They’re called blackheads because the top of the pore has oxidized and turned black.
A good skin care routine is essential to help prevent future breakouts of blackheads and blemishes on the face and body. Keeping your skin clean helps keep it healthy and blemish free. If a blemish does occur, don’t squeeze it or pick at it as this can lead to scarring. It’s best to leave them alone and treat them with an appropriate product that contains salicylic acid or benzoy

Blackheads aren’t due to dirt, but exposing your skin to the air causes the blackhead to turn darker. Cleansing helps to get rid of excess sebum and dead skin cells that clog pores.
