If you’re a Spotty Dotty like me, you might be tempted to try some nose pore strips out…
These T-Zone ones are some of the best that I’ve stumbled across. You can easily pick a packet up in discount beauty stores for about a pound, so they’re not going to break the bank if you try them and don’t like them. Places like Home Bargains and Bodycare always sell loads of different types of nose pore strips.
They are specifically designed to eradicate blackheads. I’ve never struggled with them; but I do get plenty of whiteheads and blocked pores. There’s something SO satisfying about inspecting these after you’ve peeled them off. I’m strangely addicted to it… It feels kind of good to know that you’ve ripped some oil out of your pores – which is great if you’re prone to spots in the nose area.
I know that they’re quite controversial; and some people are reluctant to try them because they could potentially do more harm than good, but I’ve been using a range of different ones for years without problems. (I don’t know if use exacerbates oil production, but I’ve never noticed a surge in spottiness days after using these.)
You should always leave at least three days between using these, but I tend to do one a week. Unless you fancy looking like Rudolf, you really don’t want to overdo it. Just be careful not to rip any skin off.
If you fancy trying these, you can get a pack of 6 for £2.99 from Fragrance Direct by clicking here.
