I’ve read recently about some people having success by using dry oatmeal and scrubbing this on the spot. Don’t rub this on your acne too much though or you may accidentally take the head off it and then you’re looking at a scab which may take a few days to heal.

You can try mixing the dry oatmeal with a little baking soda then add a little water to make it into a nice paste. Apply this on to your skin and leave for around 15 minutes. Make sure you’ve given your skin a good clean with hot water and soap beforehand to make sure your pores are nice and clean.

One thing you don’t want to be doing is applying home remedies for getting rid of zits and you end up making it worse because your skin isn’t clean! Anyway, wash off the oatmeal and baking soda paste after 15 minutes and you should start to see some of the swelling going down around the affected area.

The idea here is that the baking soda will draw out the pimple and make it a little easier to get rid of it. It may also help to reduce any redness in the area.

I’d always recommend introducing a facial steaming at least once a week into your skin care routine. This will help to open up your pores and reduce the chance of getting pimples again in the future. The great thing about having a facial steaming is that it will cover all areas of your face and not just your nose.

It may help to reduce pimples all over your skin. Make sure to give your face a good clean after the facial to make sure any gunk that has come out is cleaned away and you’re starting afresh for the new week ahead. I mentioned in a few other posts how important it is to eat healthy and drink plenty of water.

This is all integral to keep your skin clean and having pimple free skin. Eating lots of fruit and vegetables will help reduce zits on your skin because of the natural nutrients in the food. I know we all don’t have much time for it with our busy working lives but making time for exercise can reduce spots on your skin. Yes it is true by exercising regularly you will reduce the chances of getting zits and skin in general.

It’s also possible to get pimples on the inside of your nose which are really nasty. There isn’t really too much you can do to eliminate these but at least the good thing is there not visible for everyone to see so although they are unpleasant you don’t have the social stigma of having a big pimple on your nose.

Also your really don’t want to be putting any kinda of treatment inside your nose to clear out the pimple so I’m afraid you’ll have to live with these types of spots. Eat healthily, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly and this will go a long way to keeping your skin pimple free.
