Gosh, how I hate those black large nose pores!
When did you first notice them? I think I was in high school when I noticed these tiny waxy black plugs.
It must have been the beginning of budding hormones and oil production. Who would have thought I'd be dealing with enlarged pores by menopause!!!
The worst is that it seemed like these large pores along the sides of my nose never really went away....no matter what I tried.
Sometimes, if I squeeze really hard, I can get some "dirt" out, but soon it would be clogged again.
And, I'm the lucky one - I have friends who have them on their cheeks and chin too!
What Causes Clogged Pores on Nose and Chin?
In a nutshell, clogged pore are simply excess oil, dead skin cells and other debris. Sometimes it's just a simple case of improper cleaning.
But, don’t feel bad – while most of us do our best to clean our skin – the products we use (or are told to use) are mostly to blame.
Most popular facial cleanser are creamy. The ads for these types of cleansers always say these cleansers great way to clean the skin and keep it moist and hydrated!
But, the truth was most creamy cleansers do nothing to unclog pore clogging and may even contain synthetic oils. But, how would you know that?
These products made your skin feel soft and smooth and you assumed it was clean.
On the other hand, if you have oily skin you were told to use an aggressive toner after using your creamy facial cleanser to get rid of excess oil.
But, most toners either contain alcohol or some other drying agent dehydrating your skin and only causing more oil production in the long run!!
Either way, those pores on your nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead never really got cleaned. Neither of those creamy greasy cleansers or oil reducing toners did anything to clean your pores.
And in addition to improper cleaning, add to this mix the climate, environment, pollution, hormones, and chemically laden makeup.
It’s no wonder that we not only get clogged pores on the nose, but blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or acne all over our face, chest, and back.
But, the good news is the answer to smoother skin is very simple………….exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
In addition to a good facial scrub once or twice a week it’s important use some type of fruit acid that “eats” away at the dead skin cells.
This can help unclog the dirt within the pores, smooth the skin, reduce excess oil, and even minimize fine lines.
After all, those dead skin cells settle into fine lines and wrinkles which only exaggerates them!
There are a few ways you can reduce large nose pores and smooth your skin all over.
Another option is to give yourself a pineapple facial by mixing a small amount of pineapple juice with honey and apply it like a mask to your affected areas.
The pineapple juice contains bromelain – an enzyme that eats away at dead skin cells and can help clean out your pores and smooth your complexion.
Try this mask once a week on your large nose pores or anywhere else you want to minimize pores on your face….your skin will look great.
