    I'm just wondering if anyone can help me find products or remedies to stop from having whiteheads appear on my nose. I currently just wash my face with an acne face wash twice a day daily, and use a deep cleansing pore strip once a week.

    Any time there is oil present on the skin the pores will become clogged and create either blackheads or whiteheads.

    There really is no stopping it, because the more you dry out your skin the more irritated it will become and the more oil you'll produce.

    The only thing you can try to do is shrink your pores as best as possible, and when you rinse use cold water.

    If you use face lotion you need to use something that isn't skin irritating and won't clog pores. It's an endless chore trying to find products that lessen the issue, and some people just have better skin and don't have to worry.

    I use to have these when I was younger and had a tendency to pick them, which would make them sore. They just disappeared without me having to do anything. They are caused by excess oil. It's best to cut down on moisturiser or too much oil-based products on your face, as these will make it worse.

    Stop letting white guys ejaculate on your nose.

    Sorry, I had to.

    Great advice above. Also, using a lemon juice based wash can help to "sterilize" your face.

    You can try a light mask when you sleep (alone). My guy uses a product by Mario Badescu which costs a fortune but when I was a kid, I used a product called Rezamid which requires a prescription but works. Steam your face to open the pores at night before bed, clean it properly, apply the mask. It helps absorb new oils but also keeps moisture in. Wash thoroughly and moisturize in the morning. (The other thing is an absolutely clean diet but I assume you're already doing that. It got me off sugars and colas young.)

    I used Oxy 5 for that a long time ago. It shrinks the pores and dries out your skin. I wouldn't use anything stronger (e.g., Oxy 10) because when I tried it it burned.

    Do you have those gross ones that grow in that crease between your nostrils and face? I dated a guy that had those. They would grow out the pores and leave this creamy mess of oil and dead skin cells in the crease of his nose. I was constantly scraping and squeezing that shit out of those creases.

    I broke up with him for other reasons.

    Skip chemicals.. try grapefruit juice (yes great for skin) use
    those round cleaning pads... many other organic options that won't dry your skin ..like chemicals..which actually make your skin produce more oil..

    Use a face scrub in the morning and a charcoal mask once a week

    I'll admit, after using Oxy 5 on my nose it did mutate a 3rd nostril.

    Using a face scrub daily is not a good idea. You need something for pores and there are lots of products that tighten pores..most have alcohol so find one that is alcohol free.
    OXY products are not very good. But if you can't afford something like Aramis get something from the pharmacy but make sure there is no alcohol. Steaming at home is not a good idea either. Best to use the steam room at your gym for no more than 15 minutes ...more than that and your skin will produce more oil.

    each of those cleaning pads have the smell of rubbing alcohol to them, so you want to know the real answer? buy rubbing alcohol and tissues. wash reasonably often, try to regulate your diet...

    some things can't be avoided but the important thing is that you are comfortable with yourself.

    Some good advice here. I'll just note that acne at 18 is kinda normal. Due to male hormonal changes.

    I know you've still gotta deal with it, not pleasant. But don't get depressed and feel you're cursed or something, or somehow defective, or that it's gonna last forever.

    I went through it, lots of guys here went through it, some more some less. It usually diminishes on its own by your mid-20s (I know, forever at your age). That's life.

    One thing I did as a teen was wash my face often during the day. I hear some guys saying don't remove the oils too much. But that can be part of your problems at this age. You can worry about moisturizing your skin when you get into your 30s and above. Right now excess skin oil can be part of your problem.

    The condition varies by the individual. Should your acne become severe then see a dermatologist. A few pimples/zits are normal at your age. If your photos are recent and any indication, then your acne doesn't look bad at all (in fact I can't see it).

    For me, diet I realize is important if I want to avoid break outs and also hygiene.

    - Change your pillows regularly.
    - Drink lots of water, in fact, avoid sugary juices.
    - Avoid certain foods such as chocolate (in all its forms), eggs I also notice can cause breakouts too.
    - Wash your face 3 times per day, morning, noon and before you go to bed. Don't rub your face with your towel, dab.
    - Make sure you are changing your towel everyday too or at least put it out to sun to kill the germs and bacteria, make sure you keep a face towel separate from your body towel.
    - Use an anti-bacterial soap.

    - The usual - avoid all kinds of greasy, fried foods - this one is tough, because I love greasy fried foods.

    - Use coconut oil if you have to cook with it.
    - Drink bitters, sometimes you need a cleanse out.
    - Get good sleep, go to bed early, avoid unhealthy stresses in life if you can.
