Loosen the pores with steam, bath or massage, use the scrub and then wipe off.

Step I
Firstly, wash your face with a mild exfoliating agent. Use the one that is gentle to your skin. You can use a low potency benzoyl peroxide as an exfoliater. A low potency benzoyl peroxide is a recommended option to alleviate the appearance of blackheads on nose. It will wash away the dead skin cells and expose the blackhead. The benzoyl peroxide content works towards breaking up the blackheads rooted in the skin.

Do not use much of benzoyl peroxide as it is too strong for your skin. Next caution should be not to over scrub while exfoliating.

Step II
After exfoliating, pat the skin dry and get ready for steam. Use your wash basin or a bowl to get steam. You can also add a few drops of tea tree oil to it. It is a natural antibacterial agent which will help to gently wash away the dead skin cells and remove the blackheads, excess oils and embedded impurities from the nose area.

Within 5 minutes of steaming, the pores of your skin will open up and you will softer skin.

Step III
After this you can use any of the following blackhead remover techniques to clear your nose of the black pores:

1) Apply an effective blackhead remover, scrub or mask. This will absorb the oil in the blocked pore and after 10 minutes wash it off with lukewarm water and pat the skin dry.

2) Or, use a blackhead extractor. Always sterilize it before and after the use. Press its hole over the blackhead and press it gently. Be careful to get the plug out without damaging the skin around. The sides could be used for removing debris from the sides of the nostrils, chin, and ears. Apply an antiseptic soothing cream afterwards.

3) Using pore strips is very popular to remove nose blackheads. Just paste it over the skin and pull away to expel the blackheads. Also keep this in mind that over use of pore strips can aggravate your skin condition. These strips can only be used if you have blackheads on the nose and T zone. One drawback is that a pore strip does not curb blackheads from developing and the adhesive used on them can cause irritation to individuals with sensitive skin.

Pat the skin Dry and do it regularly, twice a week. Adopt a skin care routine and keep hygienic. For this you can use a number of home remedies which help to cure blackhead. This will definitely reduce your blackheads.

    Shower before...as hot as you can take it, the steam really opens up your pores and helps the black heads come out much easier. After rinse with warm water dry and apply astringent to the area you worked on!
