Whiteheads are a problem. They stupid-ify your overall appearance and cause your face to look oily and greasy. We have something for you! Here’s how to deal with whiteheads especially on the nose and chin.
What are whiteheads?
White comedones caused due to clogging of pores. They are in-extractible. So, in case you’re thinking you could squeeze and get rid of them, it’s a no. You cannot really.
Do you know the cause behind the whiteheads?
• High sebum production.
• Puberty, menstrual cycle, pregnancy.
• Humidity, clothing, weather.
• Comedogenic products related to skin care and beauty.
How to deal with whiteheads, especially on the nose and chin area?
1. Scrub some green tea and drink some:
Green tea is a good option to clean your whiteheads. Though you would not be able to extract as they are in-extractable with home remedies, scrubbing some green tea can help you to temporarily get a whitehead-free skin on your nose and chin. Just extract freshly brewed green tea and scrub some green tea leaves on your nose and chin area. After scrubbing for a few minutes, wash with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a towel. Finally, splash cold water on the scrubbed area, pat dry and moisturize immediately. Plus, drinking green tea can detox your body and skin just the way water does. So, scrub some annnd drink some.
2. Call your skin’s best buddy – Water:
Water is an essential part of an ideal skincare regime. You can probably call it a ‘partial solution’ to almost every skin issue. Staying hydrated 24×7 can work wonders for your skin. And, if it is about your skin, it should better be a safe option. What could be better than consuming water for a better health, skin, and nails? Water helps to flush out toxins and that too with ease. And, rather than de-toxifying yourself with detox-products and body-detox, you can stay in budget and still detoxify yourself with the consistent intake of water. Water intake not only helps to cure whiteheads on nose and chin (though, it will take time) but also other areas. You should drink at least 2.2 liters of water a day.
3. Dab some tea tree oil:
Diluted tea tree oil works great as an anti-bacterial option. Dilute tea tree oil and apply over the nose and chin area. You can wash it off after about 15 minutes. For best results, apply twice daily. If you want to, you can consult your dermatologist before using this.
4. Sugar-Honey extraction:
Take some warm honey and add granulated castor sugar to it. Heat the mixture and adjust the temperature according to what is comfortable for you. Apply the sugar-honey mixture with a brush on the areas of nose and chin and cover them readily with gauze strips. Let the mixture dry and take out the strips gently. Done! This remedy does not work for all, but it can work in a great way for some.
5. Egg white therapy:
This can be something really smelly but can work. All you have to do is extract some egg white from an egg and apply it over the nose and chin area, carefully with a brush. Immediately, cover the areas with gauze strips or, if available, tissue strips. As the mixture dries, pull out the strips, wash off your face and moisturize!
6. Get some Witch Hazel:
If tea-tree oil is not available to you, witch hazel can be another great option to work against whiteheads. Though, it cannot be as moisturizing as the ‘tea tree oil’, it is still a good option. Sometimes, it may need to be diluted. You should better dilute it and dab on the nose and chin areas with a cotton ball and wash after 15 minutes.
7. Retinoid and Isotretinoin:
Both the medications are prescribed by dermatologists. In fact, they should be taken only when a board-certified doctor prescribes them. And when you know that topical medicated treatments work better than home remedies, you should always give them a try. And for most, they work and give long term effects.
8. Moisturize your skin and stick to a sunscreen:
A consistent skincare regime, like using a good cruelty-free moisturizer and an oil-free sunscreen can help you to keep whiteheads at bay and if you have any right now, it would help you to get rid of them by time. A moisturizer forms a protective covering around your skin, thus, preventing most of the skin issues. Keep your skin topically hydrated with a cruelty-free hydrating moisturizer and protected from the sun with a sunscreen made especially for facial skin. Be consistent.
