8 Causes Of Blackheads On The Nose



Blackheads are a recurring skin problem for many. And once not treated properly, it can evolve into other skin problems, and even a cause of lower self esteem.

Like all acne, a blackhead occurs because of an inflamed clog in a pore, or follicle. The dark spot that looks like a speck of dirt is the plug of oxidized oil; it darkened as it came into contact with the air. 

Blackheads can occur anywhere on your body, though they are found predominantly on the face. There is a higher chance of formation of blackheads on areas susceptible to increased oil production which is the nose.

So, what causes blackheads on the nose area?

1. Hormonal Changes

Hormones in your body can cause blackheads. There is a hormone that triggers over activity of the oil glands. And if your body is producing a lot of oil, then your skin pores are likely to get clogged. 

2. Cosmetic products

Cosmetics and other skin products can cause blackheads as well, particularly on the nose. Face creams hydrate the skin, but they can end up adding more pore-clogging oil. Skin products and even makeup with fragrances and artificial color can clog the hair follicles on your skin, and cause blackheads.

3. Stress

Although there is no medical proof that stress is directly related to blackheads, everyone who has it are convinced that it can cause blackheads too. After all, anxiety and stress causes grey hairs. When under stress, we tend to neglect our body, and as a result we may very well have these blackheads.

4. Caffeine and alcohol

Studies have indicated that both alcohol and caffeine could be bad for the health of your skin. Stimulants in your coffee can kick-start the oil glands of your skin. Alcohol affects sleep, but more importantly, it can reduce the size of your skin pores. You are unnecessarily exposing yourself to clogging.

5. Smoking

The cigarette smoke is full of ash, tar, and many chemicals that can damage the surface of skin causing blocked pores and dead cells. Some experts have also commented that smoking can make your blackhead treatment fail too. 

6. Food

Sugary foods, fried foods, and those with a lot of carbohydrates can have a huge impact on your skin. Doughnuts, french fries, and chocolates have all been blamed. However this connection is not yet proven as most studies have been inconclusive.

7. Sweat

A heat wave, an intense session at the gym and everything else that makes you sweat profusely can cause blackheads. That’s because, excessive sweat can clog up the pores. And it is even worse if you have makeup while sweating.

8. Sleeping with makeup

There’s a high chance that you will have clogged pores if you go to sleep without removing the makeup. Cosmetics can clog the pores anyway. So do clean your face always before hitting the bed.

It is a popular belief that blackheads are formed as a result of to poor hygiene, and that they can be gotten rid of by just keeping your skin clean.
