How To Deal With Large Nose Pores?

6 posts in this topic

These days it seems the rest of my face stays pretty clear, however, the pores on my nose are always clogged. I eat healthy, drink at least a gallon of water each day, exfoliate, and also wash/moisturize (non-comedogenic) every morning and night. I should mention that while the pores on my nose seem large, they're actually pretty hard to see when they're clear. The problem is that no matter what I do, it's always the pores on my nose that tend to clog back up pretty quickly. Are there any tried and true methods to keep the gunk from building up there?

Also, a little off topic but still related: I'm considering having some laser resurfacing/scar removal on my nose for some leftover scars and uneven skin/scarred pores. Has anyone had any luck with laser treatments for their nose? If so, what laser did the doctor use?

Thanks

Try putting a little bit of Tea Tree Oil on before going to bed (probably not every night because it's very drying). I love that stuff! Shrinks your pores and kills bacteria. If you haven't used it before, it's very strong smelling (I kinda like the smell now though). But as soon as it dries, the smell goes away. You can buy it at any health food store (like Earth Fare) and most pharmacies (it will be in the vitamin section).

Witch hazel is another solution I have found works wonders for large pores and it doesn't over dry your skin like rubbing alcohol.
