I've been having problems with whiteheads for sometime now. I have it all over my face but I have lots of them on my nose. I really don't know how to get rid of them. I tried using biore nose strips but they seem to be making them worse. Help me i'm desperate!!!!

Whiteheads are very hormonal. They will appear no matter how much you do. At least it's always like this for me on my menstraul cycle.

Get a wash cloth, damp it with very warm water, and try to get the root out of the whitehead by pressing on it (do not scratch or rub!!). It will fade eventually if you do this.

Cake, you really hit the nail on the spot. Try to get facials every 2-3 months. They will really unclog the pores in your skin.

Unfortunately, I used to get facials, but with my recent diagnosis of pityarasis rosea, I will have to postpone that until this is completely gone. I'll probably get a facial in the winter (december).

I find that salicylic acid has helped stave off whiteheads. I apply a thin layer of 1.5% (this one i'm using now is by md forte, and before that I used murad) lotion after I cleanse my face every morning.

try to get a facial once a month. Only a professional can do excision. Also, you may want o produce products with tretinion or aha. They produce a slight peeling effec so they unclog pores. Your derma can also prescribe a pore-refining astringent.
