Blackheads?? sebacious filaments??

so after I wash my face, my nose is clear of any black dots (or "blackheads") and then after some hours or so, my nose is filled with black dots. so my question is: is this a blackhead or sebacious filaments? and any recos to prevent/lessen blackheads / sebacious filaments? (Include the serum to be paired with too ;) )

It is most likely sebaceous filaments as even though you cleansed your face from excess oil, your skin naturally keeps producing sebum until it is satisfied with how much there is, leading to the progressive appearance of sebaceous filaments. Being a fellow oily mess I totally understand what you are experiencing 😊 I hope this helps!

Without seeing what it looks like I would say sebaceous filaments that can later become blackheads. You can't get rid of sebaceous filaments but you can maintain them by using salicylic acid, niacinamide, clay masks, avoiding comedogenic ingredients, hydrating and moisturising.

It will take weeks/months to see results, especially with lower BHA concentration. So keep at it!
