Welcome to Spa Virgin Presents: Tips and Tricks for a Better You. Hi, I’m Jacki Etcheveste. I’m and esthetician and the owner of Golden of Youth Spa and Pilates. And today I would like to give you a tip on how to reduce blackheads especially around the nose area. So no matter how great our skin is. How much we clean it. We always seem to get a group of blackheads that just never seem to go away and they’re always on the crease of our nose. So what are you going to about that, right? The solution to that is a toothbrush. But not just any toothbrush. You want to go out and buy a kid’s toothbrush because the head will always be smaller and the bristles with be softer. And you keep the toothbrush dedicated for your facial scrubbing.

What I would suggest after you put your cleanser on. You always want to wash your face with a brush–and they have so many brushes out there that are so popular–or a wash cloth. But never wash your face with just your fingers because you can’t possible clean it properly. Once you have the cleaner on take your toothbrush and get it wet and then get it in there and scrub the side of your nose. You can even do the nasal openings because we tend to get blackheads in there as well. Once you are done scrubbing, and make sure you get in there, you want to wipe your face afterwards with a nice warm wash cloth. And then splash your face with cold water to tighten the pores. And you want to end by moisturizing. Even if you are oily, make sure you use a oil free moisturizer. If you are not oily use a nice hydrating moisturizer. And never let that outer skin dry. Because if you the outer skin dries then that creates more oil. If you have more oil what does that create? More blackheads.

So remember the reason this works so well is because the bristles can get into the pores because they are so small. So they can scoop the oil and the dirt out of the pores. And then after you have been cleaning for awhile. You should be doing this daily. Then pretty soon it should prevent the blackheads from gathering in your noise because you have been cleaning the pores out with the bristles.

That is my tip on how to reduce blackheads. Thank you for joining us today as Spa Virgin Presents: Tips and Tricks for a Better You. And this was your tip on how to reduce blackheads.
