blackheads not goin away on retin a

Recommended Posts

so today marks week 8th on RAM .1 %. yet still there are blackheads i think deep within my nose. they're not too noticeable, but they are annoying. My nose has a smooth surface. Is there any way to get rid of them? I've tried nose strips before but they don't help much for these deep blackheads. Thanks.

No nose strips!

I have the same problem as you. Retinoids can't get rid of my persistent clogged pores on my nose. I suggest exfoliation: jessfoliation, salicylic acid (doesn't do much for me) or AHA's (check out LionQueen 's topic about mandelic acid).

If you exfoliate don't overdo it because it will make your nose more oily (clogging pores) and you could possibly scar your pores.
