try elmers glue just put it on you nose then wait till its completly dry then peel it off for best results you might want to steam or use a scrub on you face first.but I would do this if I had skin that irrtates easily.

my words of wisdom: 1.life can be tragic...too bad get over it. 2.If you are having a bad day a handfull of tic tacs and a couple of motrim will fix you right up.
3.Don't buy non humane animal tested stuff I mean don't you hate it when people don't even "put the animals to sleep" first?

Once I tried using invisible/Scotch tape on various parts on my face.  Leave them on for several minutes and peel off.  It did seem to get rid of excess oil and dead skin cells.

So far out of all the things i've bought, the tea tree oil has really been the most helpful.  I recently started to breakout all over my chin (wahhh) but the tea tree oil has dried out the pimples.  Also, vitamin A is supposed to help with blackheads.  You buy the pills and break them open and apply on your face... but i'm sure how reliable that one is.

a lot of people like the "aspirin mask" basically you take six uncoated aspirin, crush them into a powder, add a few drops of water to make a paste and apply to affected area.  leave on ten minutes then massage in circular motion and rinse off.  Aspirin contains BHA which is what you find in toners that claim to remove blackheads.  Do not use this mask if you are allergic to aspirin!

Aspirin is also pure salicylic acid, the key ingredient in most acne creams

I tried the aspirin mask, and if nothing else it made my face feel FANTASTIC! So smooth and silky...  Kiss

Just curious, is eucalyptus (sp?) oil the same as tea tree oil??  I'm pretty sure it is, but i wanted to be positive before I use it.  My aunt brought back some from austrailia, and the bottle has POISON writtin all over it, which is kinda intimidating.  I'm assuming its only bad if you were to eat or drink it, but I don't want to expierence some crazy skin reaction.

I believe tea tree and eucalyptus are two very different plants, but both are native to Australia.  I use tea tree in some stuff (lotion, mainly), and I've been reading that you can become easily sensitized to it if you use it too often and in too strong a concentration, so I'm trying to use it sparingly.  Never use essential oil undiluted directly on your skin.  I know it's supposed to be effective for zits, but be careful with it...
