Blackheads on your nose can be some of the most difficult spots to clean. The curvature of your nose, nostrils blocking the path of your tools, various things are just not in your favor when trying to clean your nose. The following nose blackheads scrubs recipes will provide you with enough firepower against those nose blackheads and provide you with a smooth skin afterwards.
Nose blackheads scrubs recipes:
1. Apply a sugar scrub.
Making a mixture of oil and sugar can be helpful when trying to make gentle nose blackheads scrubs that won’t damage your skin. When choosing the right kind of oil, make sure to pick jojoba oil as it mimics the oil your skin produces the closest.
If jojoba oil is hard to find, you could also use rapeseed, olive and sweet almond oil as alternatives.
-Mix 4 tablespoons of oil with 1 cup of brown or white sugar. Stir until you get a nice paste.
-Wash your face with lukewarm water and disinfect your hands with rubbing alcohol. Then scoop some of the paste onto your fingertips and gently massage it into your skin. Make sure you get especially behind the nostrils as well!
-Do this for a couple of minutes then rinse your face again with lukewarm water.
Don’t overdo it with this scrub. Excess scrubbing can cause skin irritations or even worse, it can dry out your skin. Twice a week is more than enough.
Make sure you store this scrub in a cool, dry place in an airtight jar and it should stay good for up to 2 months.
2. Exfoliate your nose with baking soda.
Scrubbing and exfoliating are important factors in your battle against nose blackheads as it clears the skin of any dead skin cells that might mix with the oil on your skin and start clogging pores.
-In a bowl with mineral water, mix about 2 teaspoons of baking soda. If the mixture seems to dry, add some more water, if the mixture seems to wet, add some more baking soda.
The goal here is to get to a paste that you can easily rub onto your skin.
-After a paste has formed, take some onto your fingertips and gently rub your nose and your nostrils. Make sure not to break the skin though so be nice and gentle to yourself when you do this.
-Let it sit for a couple of minutes before washing it off. Again with lukewarm water.
Try this scrub a couple of times a week and see how your skin changes. If nothing happens after 30 days of trying, switch to something new, if it does, keep doing it and watch your skin glow!

3. Make oatmeal nose blackheads scrubs.
The combination of oatmeal, lemon juice and yogurt works well to keep your skin free of blackheads.
-In a bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of oatmeal, three tablespoons of plain yogurt (preferably organic) and the juice of half a lemon.
-Take some paste into your hands, apply it to your nose and let it sit for a couple of minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
-Do this at most twice a week, see what happens and watch your skin glow!
Pro tip: You can also switch out the yogurt and lemon with the juice of 4 tomatoes and a teaspoon of honey. The goal again is to get to a paste, so if the paste seems to liquid, add more dry ingredients and vice versa.
