Seoul Mamas understands the plight of those struggling with blackheads. Blackheads are acne that grows to the surface of the skin. When the pores are clogged and closed, it is called whiteheads. But when the top is left open, a lump will form. 

What Are Blackheads?

Many people think that blackheads are black because that is the color of dirt in the pores. The fact is that blackheads are black or dark gray because when they come in contact with air, the oil and dead skin that clog the pores will oxidize and blacken.
If you have blackheads, you may want to know how to remove blackheads in and around your nose. You can try a few options, from home remedies to dermatologist recommendations, and prevention tips to help prevent blackheads. 

Maintain a Cleansing Routine

First, keep up with your cleansing routine. This is not the first time you have heard that washing your face regularly can help treat acne and blackheads on your nose. Even washing your face in the morning is a good idea to remove dirt or bacteria that may remain on your face at night. You also need to make sure to clean the pillowcase regularly. 

Don’t Overclean

Be careful not to clean too much, as it will damage the skin and cause it to produce more oil to compensate. However, your skin must be cleaned as soon as possible after exercise. If you don’t have easy access to the sink, cleansing wipes are very suitable. Sweat stays in the pores along with dirt and oil, so you should wash your face, preferably before the sweat dries up.

Mild Exfoliants

When it comes to exfoliation, you might think of irritating or irritating exfoliants. These can make acne more inflamed. Fortunately, you can use a variety of mild chemical scrubs. Look for those containing alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHA and BHA). 

Clay & Oil Removal

Finally, clay is a mild ingredient, a trusted source, and its effectiveness can be traced back to ancient times. Clay helps to remove excess oil from the skin, and helps loosen and even remove dirt from clogged pores. Clay masks are gentler than pore strips, which can peel off a layer of skin. On the contrary, clay enters the pores and can gradually remove dirt and oil.
