You are not the only one if you suffer from an oily nose. It is a common problem, particularly among teenagers. Keep reading to know how you can deal with it.
Having an oily nose is common with oily skin, but it is tricky to deal with when you have a normal to combination skin type. This is because the sebaceous glands in your nose are hyperactive and produce more than the required oil to keep the skin lubricated. Interestingly, to deal with an oily nose is the same as to deal with general oily skin. Here are some tips for you:
Choose the right product:
Choose products carefully. Even if it’s only your nose that is oily, it can break out and worsen the skin condition, so choose oil-free but hydrating products.
Moisturize and exfoliate regularly:
Use oil mattifiers:
When your whole face is normal but your nose is too oily, try using oil mattifiers to reduce the shiny look of your nose.
Use blotting sheets:
Carry blotting sheets with you and dab the excess oil from your nose whenever it gets too oily.
Add salicylic acid to your routine:
