1. Blackheads : Why Oh Why do they exist ? Usually due to an overproduction of sebum (oil caused by hormones), built up dead skin cells and bacteria.
How to Fix "Em : Exfoliate, use spot treatments with salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide and Vitamin A. Try cleansers that target blackheads.
2. Broken Capillaries : Why ? According to New York dermatologist Jessica Krant, MD, although they are called "broken capillaries", they are actually intact, but dilated. "Anything that makes the nose red for a prolonged period of time , like hormonal fluctuations, allergies or rosacea can lead to the expansion of these microscopic vessels, but they are completely harmless and generally easy to cover with makeup. "Broken capillaries are caused by aging, the environment, genetics or too much sun.
How to Fix 'em : if laser treatments are out of the question try makeup to camouflage broken capillaries.
3. Oily Patches : Why do we have 'em ? There are a lot of sebaceous glands on our noses, so that area tends to suffer from the midday grease. Also oily skin is related to hormones and genetics.
Fix it by washing skin with warm, not hot water (hot can stimulate excess oil). Try cleansers with glycolic and salicylic acids and mattifying agents that prevent oiliness.
4. Wrinkles and Crinkles : these small lines occur on the upper part where the nose and eyes meet. The results of aging, facial expressions or overactice muscles.
Fix it with Retin-A products that will help smooth them out or ZAP those bunny lines with a wee bit of Botox from your local Derm, R.N. or Plastic Surgeon. Not ready for Botox use a topical that reduces width and depth of expression lines.
