I have blackheads on my nose that won't go away. Help!
They 'come out' when squeezed, like a regular blackhead, but then reappear soon after. I've used pore strips, blackhead extractors, and regular masks, but they aren't budging - they also appear on the skin at the 'corners' of my nose as well. I use Origins face wash in the mornings, take off my make-up (a light liquid foundation) with some Clarins stuff that turns from oil to gel with water, and I also have a lotion called Duac
my doctor prescribed me for spots elsewhere, but they aren't going away. I also use a light moisturizer. However, they've been there through any changes in skincare so I know it's not anything I'm using. Probably. I've tried a fresh face mask from Lush that seems to be good at calming down mys kin in general but it isn't budging the blockages.
I have a terrible habit of picking at spots so I'd like to know how to get these gone so I can remove the temptation. (By the way, I'm in the UK so 'go to a dermatologist' isn't much of an option - we see our GP for any skin related issues and only get referral for severe rather than cosmetic problems.)
