Alternative to painful extractions

Any recommendations on DIY home facial minus the painful extractions? My friend recommended using egg whites on cotton wool and leaving it to dry. After drying you can peel off the cotton wool with all the black heads and white heads. Any thoughts if this really works?

You will damage you nose skin, deform, and enlarge your pores if you use any sort of peel-off nose strip. I would use double cleansing, BHA, AHA, and niacinamide instead to treat blackheads and whiteheads.

I strongly suggest using a chemical exfoliator please! This gentle chemical exfoliator has helped me significantly reduce whiteheads, blackheads & closed comedones 💚 I use it 1-2 times weekly!

Nope, I suggest you to get a bottle of jojoba oil instead if you want a natural way to clean off the blackheads, else you might want to try chemical exfoliator as mentioned above together with clay mask. Jojoba oil if you massage enough, it can dissolve the blackhead, but it is not an efficient method. Egg whites, will dry out if you apply on skin. It doesn't extract the blackheads, you can try it, and you will know it won't work.

I have zero belief in DIY Use chemical exfoliators 2-3x a week maximum at night and Sunscreen in the day You will see results in 2-3 months and not painful BHA = Salicylic Acid which is oil soluble and works to unclog pores
