Why do we have blackheads on the nose?

Blackheads on the nose mainly concern normal, combination and oily skin. In general, blackheads appear more on the T-zone:the forehead, the nose, the chin . Why ? Because this area of ​​the face is richer in sebaceous glands, the glands that produce sebum. We often tend to consider sebum as an enemy:it causes blackheads, even pimples on the nose , makes the skin shiny.

And yet, it is necessary for the good health of the skin! Indeed, it contributes to the balance of the hydrolipidic film. This film, made up of water and sebum, helps protect the skin against external aggressions. However, in women with combination or oily skin, the sebaceous glands are overactive on the T-zone, and especially on the nose.

The production of sebum is then excessive, and ends up clogging the pores. These small orifices, which serve to evacuate water, toxins, and sebum from the skin, can no longer fulfill their role. This creates inflammation, which results in the appearance of blackheads, or pimples on the nose.
