Let’s admit it! We all tend to overlook certain areas on our face while following a skincare routine religiously. The skin on the nose is one of them. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, then you must have noticed that the texture of the skin on your nose is rough and uneven. That’s due to a number of concerns, namely, blackheads, whiteheads and excess sebum production.
Girl, it’s high time you start paying more attention to the skin on your nose. Here are 5 essential tips you must follow to make the skin on your nose smooth as butter.
- #01: Exfoliate for a smooth surface
- #02: Steam your face
- #03: Reach for facial oils
- #04: Include vitamin C serum in your skincare routine
#01: Exfoliate for a smooth surface
Never underestimate the power of exfoliation. While over-exfoliating can cause skin irritation, it is important to exfoliate at least twice or thrice a week. Scrubbing will help you get rid of dead skin cells and achieve a smoother surface.
While scrubbing, make sure you’re not too harsh. Gently run your fingers on the bridge of your nose as well as on the sides for a thorough cleanse. Pampering your skin with the St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub will polish away the dryness and flakiness.
#02: Steam your face
Do you know what comes in the way of smooth skin, especially on your nose? Blackheads and whiteheads. They are your skin’s worst enemy.
When dead skin cells and excess sebum accumulate in the skin follicle, it gives rise to pesky blackheads and whiteheads. Pollution, gunk and grime collect and enter the pores, clogging your skin and ruining its texture.
Getting rid of blackheads and whiteheads is no easy feat. But, here’s a tip that can help you achieve a smoother nose. It’s called steaming!
You can either use a steamer or a pan filled with hot water to steam your face. Steaming helps draw out dirt from the skin’s surface. Immediately after steaming, reach for nose peels to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads on your nose. The best time to get the most out of your nose peels is when your skin is soft and your pores are open.
#03: Reach for facial oils
If you have oily skin, then you’re probably experiencing excess greasiness on your nose. This is because the pores on your nose are naturally larger than the pores on the rest of your face. When these pores enlarge or get clogged, it leads to concerns such as acne. Acne, in turn, can ruin the texture of your skin.
So, what’s the best solution, you ask? You’ll be surprised to know that including facial oils in your skincare routine can actually help regulate sebum production and control the pH balance of your skin, helping you banish oily skin woes and ultimately acne.
#04: Include vitamin C serum in your skincare routine
As opposed to chemicals, including vitamin C in your skincare routine can do wonders in improving the health of your skin. It can be your best bet for everyday use.
Reach for a vitamin C serum and apply it once every night before hitting the sheets. You will wake up to smoother skin in the morning. This powerful antioxidant not only treats age spots and acne scars but also improve the texture of the skin on your nose significantly.
