Huge Open Pores And Blackheads Down Side Of Nose.

Recommended Posts

hi all,

I have huge open pores down the side of my nose (where my nose meets my face).

sometimes i get whiteheads and sometimes i can see gunk (white strands) coming out the individual pores.

the skin is certainly damaged.

does BP make this worse? I have been using it to prevent the whiteheads but am wondering if it is making the pores more visible?

any tips appreciated! Im getting really self consious about it.

Try to use BP every other day if you see inflammation. Also, try using steam to unclog your pores and proceed to use a toner.

You might be using too much. In my experience, salicylic acid is effective at making pores appear smaller around the nose.

Yes I have the same problem. BP will help with the whiteheads, not the blackheads in my experience. For the blackheads you will need an exfoliant, such as AHA or BHA. The pores I have no clue what to do....apparently they can't be shrunk they are the same size forever.
