Hi, I have got an oily skin and I can't get off the black heads from my nose. Is there anyway I can reduce the oilyness and the blackheads? Thanks

Blackheads. Don't scrub! It just injures the skin and increases the risk of infection. Your hormones are to blame for the only skin and I don't think you want to attempt changing that. A salicylic gel or base is probably the most helpful but apply sparingly at night, starting with a couple of times per week, increasing nightly. Use a very gentle cleanser specifically for the face (not for oily skin).
Acne. Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day & use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider OTC products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). Retinoids/ comedone extractor can be helpful for black heads. If > mild acne see dermatology.

See a dermatologist. NO homemade facial will help you. Prescription meds and mechanical extraction of them will help. Tretinoin and adapalene gels are very useful for this. Blackheads are NOT DIRT.

Skin care products. Try to use skin care products for combination skin types or for normal skin. When selecting moisturizers, stay away from products that contain mineral oil, petrolatum, and even shea. These ingredients are comedogenic (plug your pores) and may encourage blackhead formation. I recommend the skin clear wash and the apple phloretin hydrator from cosmo grade professional skincare. Read more...

Pimple appearance. The most important thing to remember is to avoid the urge to pick at your skin! Keep your skin clean and moisturized with hyoallergenic products, and apply benzoyl peroxide as directed on the package. A cool compress on red inflamed areas can help reduce the appearance. Avoiding sun exposure should also help prevent scarring and discoloration. Read more...
