Default black heads on nose

I've had black heads on my nose ever since I can remember, although I'm sure they made their first appearance around puberty. I've used the Biore nose strips which are satisfying to use but I don't think they've made that much of an impact. Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of these?

The only thing that's made any difference for me with my blackheads and huge pores is to OCM. From time to time, you can actually feel the oil plugs coming out of your skin.

is the oil cleansing method where you use extra virgin olive oil and castor oil to clean your face?

Yes, but I use Jojoba oil instead of EVOO.

Sorry! I just got back!

OCM could give you clogged pores, but I personally think it depends on what oil you use. EVOO and castor work well for me. I tried castor with coconut oil and my pores got SO CLOGGED! I also tried castor and jojoba oil. It worked okay, but the EVOO works better for me. I want to try some sweet almond oil next.

It works very well. I love how it softens my face and reduces the fine lines.

This may be a bit more than some would like to spend, but ever since I purchased the Clarisonic facial brush, my skin has never looked better. It seems to get all the gunk trapped in the pours out. Definitely my stubborn blackheads have disappeared and the pours are much cleaner now.

I have a Clarisonic brush too...awesome machine. I highly recommend it for anyone suffering from congested pores, but it is a bit expensive.

How much is it? Also, is plain EVOO fine or do you have to use castor oil too.

Plain EVOO is fine, but you have to just try different oils and see what works best. I find that the castor is a little more cleansing, and my skin needs that.

OCM didn't work so well for me, but adding a little green tea oil to the mix did help a lot.

I've been wanting one of those clarisonics! It figures that the 2 women whose skin routines I've been stalking have them!

OCM was a really bad move for me, I started breaking out and getting blackheads in places I don't normally get them.

This Clarisonic brush sounds interesting...

I have found that the biore poor strips do absolutely nothing for me as well. So, how much is this clarisonic brush? I have the worst time with blackheads. Right now I just started Black soap from www.nasabb.com so far it hasn't agravated, but its been 2 days. I also may be trying OCM soon. ~~jax
