Most of the time, whiteheads or closed comedones are found around the nose, the forehead and the chin region of the face – commonly known as the T-Zone area. These pimples are a lot different from other acne eruptions, because whiteheads contain pus of white or yellowish color.
Whiteheads form close to the surface of the skin as compared to blind pimples or blackheads that are embedded deep within skin tissue. There are so many ways of treating whiteheads and specifically, ‘T-Zone Whiteheads’. The worst way to handle it would be to dig them with nails or by touching them. You don’t want those ugly scars and definitely don’t want repeat occurrences.
Whiteheads may appear in really small and tight clusters under the lip or on the tip of the chin. This is because the sebaceous glands in this region produce more oils than the rest of the face. The best way to control T-Zone whiteheads on the chin would be by making a homemade oats scrub and exfoliating your skin with it. Immediately lock your pores by running an ice cube over your skin.
As compared to blackheads that are found on the tip of the nose and around it, whiteheads are found in the corners of the nose and are generally hidden in places where the naked eye can’t see. If picked at, you will depress the region and find that your skin is red and irritable. Nose strips that remove blackheads/whiteheads and oatmeal scrubs are the best ways to tackle this issue after a nice, warm bath or some steam. Since the nose is a particularly sensitive region, you could get whiteheads professionally removed by going for regular face-clean ups at the spa.
The forehead is one of the oiliest regions on the face. Use steam for opening pores and whitehead removal tools to remove the whiteheads off the face. If that seems like a painful proposition, go natural and use a tea-tree oil mud pack or make exfoliating packs of your own at home.
