5 ways to remove away your Blackheads on Nose, Chin and Forehead

5 ways to remove away your Blackheads on Nose, Chin and Forehead 

1. Pick the right exfoliating acid for your skin type. 
When it comes to incorporating the right percentage of exfoliating acid in your beauty regimen, Dr. Talakoub recommends 10 percent for dry skin, 20 percent for oily skin, and 30 percent for tougher areas on the back that can get blackheads. Too light a percentage and you might not get the results you seek; too heavy a percentage and you'll irritate your skin.

2. For a gentle mechanical exfoliation, try a microdermabrasion tool.
Don’t have time to make it to the doctor’s office? Give yourself a mini at-home facial instead with this derm-approved treatment. Microdermabrasion is like taking a handheld vacuum to your face to slough away dead skin cells from the surface layer. It helps stimulate collagen production and increase the absorption of skin-care products.

3. Use a clay mask or overnight treatment. 
A clay mask, such as one made of Amazonian white clay, will pull out all the dirt from your skin. You can apply for 15 minutes and rinse, or you can use it as a spot treatment overnight. “When you’re sleeping, your pores are open, and at night, there are dirt and germs in the air," says Wong. If your skin produces lots of oil, you can put the clay mask on your nose or T-zone to specifically target blackheads in that area. Charcoal masks are another alternative to clay. Choose a formula that has clay and plenty of moisturizing ingredients.

4. Get extractions from a professional. 
While it's possible to pop whiteheads at home, it's best to see a professional every four to six weeks to get rid of blackheads. The small hardened dots are typically too tiny to get with just your fingers. Estheticians like Wong use a small tool during a facial to squeeze out the dirt from the pores without breaking the skin (or enlarging the pore).

5. Briefly ice the area immediately after a ‘squeeze session.
' We’ve all had those moments when the urge to pop a blackhead is just too great to resist. When that happens, Dr. Nussbaum recommends icing the area for a few minutes to help decrease redness and inflammation. Just make sure not to leave the ice on for too long as it can cause an ice burn. Instead of popping a blackhead, you can also spot-treat with a salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide–based product.
