A clean face


#1

How exactly are you supposed to get the pores on the bridge of your nose clean? I’ve scrubbed them with different cleansers. I got those strips that’s supposed to pull the dirt out. I’ve gotten different masks. I even got a little metal tool with a circle on it to scrap it out. It doesn’t seem to matter what I do, they are still little black dots that won’t go away. It’s pissing me off. Tell me what works for you.

I have also dilated pores with bleackheads. I clean them manually… its tough to see them disappear, i know, i know… i made my peace a bit with this, cause everybody has some black heads i find. Sometimes they look to me like freckles :grinning:.


#3

Baking soda.

I scrub with baking soda and water,

Then let the paste kind of sit on my nose for a couple minutes.

Rinse.

Works every time.

I have no advice, I’m skin care dumb, but I just want to check in and make sure this isn’t an OCD thing that you’re scrubbing the skin off your face. Are you okay? Truly?


#5

Yeah there are some baking soda cleansers as well.

Honestly, the more you touch them, the more they will come back. It means you have oily skin.

I personally, sometimes, clean with an extractor and then put a charcoal mask on my nose area for 20 minutes. Then I use an acid toner to remove the oiliness.

I suggest using Pixi Glow Tonic acid toner with a cotton pad morning and evening before a moisturizer.

lol, no it’s not ocd. I just want it clean


#7

Okay. Just be careful.

Sometimes squeezing that stuff out is the way to get rid of it. If cleansers aren’t working then you likely have a bunch of sebum collecting in your pores just sitting there. Warm towel on your face for a few minutes and then squeeze away. Sounds gross I know, but it seems to work. You can try the baking soda thing that goldenrex suggested, too.
