The bumpy spots around the nose are called blackheads. Especially during summer, when hot weather approaches, it becomes more nerve-wracking.
Blackheads doesn’t go away just because you clean your face. Because they are deeply embedded in the skin, like nails. They do not disappear even if you rub them with exfoliator or take them off with a nose pack. Furthermore, packs are highly irritating and can damage the skin if used incorrectly.

Blackheads are a mixture of old dead skin cells and sebum in the pores, and as they build up, the pores grow bigger and bigger. Moreover, once a blackhead occurs, the old dead skin cells form four times faster than normal, which is a real concern.

Also, if germs penetrate here, they can cause acne. Therefore, no matter how many times you use nose packs and wash your face, it won’t go away easily, so you should take good care of your pores.

So how should we manage it?
First of all, it is most important to get rid of dirt in your pores. You should remove sebum whenever sebum is secreted. At least once a week, you need to cleanse the waste and sebum in your pores by using a pack or deep cleansing, and opening your pores with a steam towel before cleansing helps you wipe off the sebum.
Steam towel can helps to open pores, this helps cleansing masks (such as mud mask) work more effectively in removing sebum. Some people use products that use scrubs to remove sebum deeply embedded in their pores, but because of too much rubbing this can cause keratin from dead skin cells to form and the mixture of keratin and skin oil can increase pore blockage. Wash your face gently to prevent possible keratin, you should carefully press and rub your nose with your fingertips, built up the foam of the cleansing foam, and rinse it several times to prevent any residue of the cleanser.

By doing this, you prevent skin from building up serum in the pores. As a result, you can see that the blackheads are getting smaller. Of course, in worse cases, it is also desirable to get a blackhead treatment from a skin care clinic. Clinical treatment for blackhead with special solution (blackout toner) can be applied and with the additional application of steamer and scrubber can drastically reduce the appearance of large pore in 3 to 5 treatments. It is not recommended to extract using needles for blackheads as this will cause enlarged pores. For severe cases, visit clinic for professional treatment. At home extraction could cause scarring.

Some people say that as they reach their 30s and 40s, they suddenly have pores that have never been seen before. This is actually caused by skin elasticity, as you age the decrease in skin elasticity cause the skin to become more loose and this in effect makes pores more noticeable. For young people, the majority of those with wide pores have oily skin. In this case, isotretinoin, a vitamin A, Inderma Alpha 12.5% can reduce sebum secretion and reduce pores. On the other hand, enlarged pores caused by aging do not cause sebum secretion, so this alone cannot be effective. Clinical treatments could include microneedle RF treatment, radio frequency, dermastamp, premium peel and fractional laser. The number of treatments depends on the type of procedure and skin condition, and in the case of microneedle RF treatment using high-mainstream waves, the results are satisfactory after one treatment. In the case of fractional laser, total three to five treatments, one treatment every month can have satisfactory effects on pores, wrinkles, and acne scars. Premium peel treatment can be done 3 time for once a month to receive required results.

Once enlarged, pores rarely shrink before undergoing such a professional procedure. Therefore, it is important to keep your pores clean in the first place.
