Something I get asked all the time in clinic (or in tesco when I bump into half of you on the weekly shop) is what can I do about the blackheads on my nose? When we take a closer look the “blackheads’" they're actually not blackheads most of the time, they’re sebaceous filaments which are totally a normal part of the skins structure. Don't get me wrong, sometimes people have blackheads on their nose and yes I can get rid of those for you but 9 times out of 10 there not. Blackheads are blackheads, literally black on the surface and can usually be extracted and will often be very hard when removed (this is the part mid treatment when I show you what I get out of your face and you're disgusted but I'm buzzing LOL).
We all are continuously scrolling across social media and seeing ‘perfection’ but please remember that most of the things we see have been edited and airbrushed. Don't let anyone tell you they don't have sebaceous filaments babes because we ALL do! They Are essential for skin health, they actually help keep the skin moisturised.
There are a couple of things you can do to reduce the appearance and and keep the dirt at bay, heres some tips and product recommendations:
DO NOT squeeze them, just wash your face hun! No seriously, use a good cleanser which is for your skin type to help keep the dirt away.
Exfoliate once a week - nothing to harsh though please.
Get a facial which uses BHA’s (salicylic acid based peel - ask me I can tell you specifics for your skin)
Use products at home that have BHA’s in
Use products that increase cell turn over like retinols - start with a low percentage first.
Use products with AHA’s in to get rid of dead skin cells, we don't want no clogged skin hun!
Cleanse everyday, morning and night. PERIOD
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SPF
