How to Get Rid of Blackheads on the Nose Fast
Blackheads are small skin bumps which are skin-colored and commonly appear on the forehead, chin and nose of people suffering from acne. They are caused when the inside opening of a pore in the skin is plugged up with oil on the skin called sebum and sloughed-off skin dead skin cells. Blackheads appear more often on the face, especially the nose than any part of the body. There are many treatments that can eliminate blackheads such as over-the-counter or prescription creams. However, these methods can take many months before any results can be seen. Luckily, you can easily get rid of blackheads by using an instrument used by professional beauticians and dermatologists called a blackhead remover, or comedone extractor.
Immerse the blackhead remover in a clean bowl filled with isopropyl alcohol. Cover the bowl and let it sit for two hours. Remove the blackhead remover using clean hands, and wipe dry with a sterile cotton ball.
Cleanse your face with antimicrobial soap and warm water for five minutes. This will help open your skin pores and moisten your nose to prepare it for blackhead extraction. Make sure to wash your hands with antimicrobial soap and water after washing your face. Use clean tissues to dry your face and hands afterwards.
Sit in front of a mirror in a well lit room and locate the blackheads on your nose. Gently and firmly push the hole of the blackhead remover over each blackhead on your nose. Pick the blackhead off with your clean fingers or use a pair of tweezers (clean with alcohol first), and quickly dab your nose with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball to disinfect and clean your skin. Make sure to wipe the blackhead remover with alcohol to disinfect it before popping another blackhead.
Rinse your face with cold water after you have eliminated all the blackheads on your nose. The cold water will help close your skin pores.
Soak a sterile cotton ball with isopropyl alcohol and wipe it on your nose after washing and drying or face. Applying alcohol will help prevent skin infections.
