How can I get rid of my blackheads on my nose?
I have many blackheads on the side of my nose. How do I get rid of them, and also, how can I "open my pores" (as I have heard other people talk about to get rid of black heads)? Thanks!
Wow! There's a lot of answers! Thanks, guys!

I've never, ever had a blackhead; however, my boyfriend has a few.
He's a big lover of the Biore Pore Strips. You leave them on for about fifteen minutes, and it totally cleans out your pores. Afterwards, squeeze that junk out of your nose, and follow with a nice warm water cleansing, and rinse with cold water.
Your pores "open" when they're exposed to warm water and "close" when exposed to cool water.
Make sure you wash your face at least at night. Use an astringent to take off your makeup.
Be sure you eat plenty of fruits, and drink a lot of water to keep your pores tight and clean.

Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet.
In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood.
Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones.
In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

to open your pores, put a warm damp cloth over your face.
It depends on how old you are. If you are a teenager, don't rush to get rid of those. Because (as i'm sure you've heard many times before) its natural for that age to have a lot of black heads, zits, ect. But theres this Burts Bee's thing that i use, and it works. Its called the Blemish Stick. Sometimes it stings, but it gets rid of facial "blemishes" quickly.

get a "blemish popper" made by like revlon or some other brand pop all of them. then get really hot hot water and put it on a wash cloth, wring out the wash cloth and put it over ur nose
repeat that step like 3 times
that will open up your pores then just wash out your face and it will get rid of all the dirt that creates black heads

Try the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask. It's totally old school as my mom has been using it since she was in high school but it cleans out your pores and then helps reduce the size of them. You can get it at any drug store, cheap, less than $5.

What I do is get a facial, they take them out. Very careful about removing them, could scar. Maybe take a warm shower, piece of tissue between your fingers. Then gently press, not hard, they should pop little pressure.
