    I put those Biore pore strips on my boyfriend sometimes... it seems to help. (he would probably kill me if he knew I was posting that on the internet)

    My boyfriend snapped a picture of me a couple of years ago with that on my nose.....I haven't used them since and the picture is somewhere secret where I can't find it. Hmmm---bribery?

    that's not a bad idea.... he's got a few bad pics of me. I am sure I could get 1 or 2 back in exchange for a pic with one of those on his nose.

    I think they were actually created for men... they don't seem to do anything for me, but when you take them off his nose it's disgusting!

    It could aggravate if you leave it on too long. This is what I do/have done:


    Once a week I cleanse, exfoliate, and then put fresh lemon juice on my
    face for 5 minutes followed by a clay mask, then a mosturizing mask.
    When you first start using lemon juice, you must only keep it on for 2
    minutes for a month, then increase it by a minute each month until you
    reach 5 minutes. This allows your skin to "get used" to the acid. I've
    been doing doing this for 2 years now and black heads have decreased
    enormously, but best of all I'm not getting any new ones.

    One thing more: Don't use the lemon mask more than once a week.

    Any effective ways to remove blackheads?

    Hello,

    Are there any effective ways of removing blackheads from the face, I have some small onces around the nose area - difficult to see unless quite close.

    Anyone got any good product advice or tips they could pass on please? :brows:

    Thank you.

    I think that would be fine. The lemon juice exfoliates for you.

    Just lemon juice could be a bit too harsh if your skin is in any way sensitive..try to add some honey to the lemon and you should be okay :flower:

    I beg to differ, Prince! The actual act of PERFORMING facials is generally for girls, although there are a small handful of men (myself included) who are licensed estheticians...but the actual facial itself isnt embarrassing at all--trust me, about 20% of my clients are males.

    So, having said that--what's stopping you??

    Copenhagen and Denmarks 2nd largest city have beauty salons for men-only http://www.mensroom.dk/ :flower: So facials are indeed also for men.

    omg i second this. i used to squeeze mine (the bf taught me how..how sick is that ewwww haha) but it does make things worse. immediately after, u are red and inflamed usually. and yes sometimes my skin would actually peel a day or so later. over time it just gives you so many blackheads you never knew you could have!

    i have really sensitive skin and tons of blackheads on the nose (had blackheads haha) and i find that using a gentle (i.e. non-abrasive) exfoliating wash such as the one made by "Aqua Glycolic" brand (my derm recommended it, and it is far better than any other grainy exfoliants i've tried..which as one poster noted work against you) and the Aqua Glycolic toner along with Retin-A micro consistently for about 4 to 6 weeks..they will be gone. you have to be reallllly patient but it is so worth it. and you won't be tempted to squeeze again :wink:
