blackheads and vitamin e.

hi i have a question,

i have some blackheads on my nose, and im using vitamin e cream all over my nose and cheeks... so im wondering does putting vitamin e cream on my nose causes blackheads, or make it worse?

if it makes it worse, can you please explain why this happens? is it because of the sebum or something?

thanks.

Re: blackheads and vitamin e.

Vitamin e is like an oil.
if you've ever seen a vitamin e capsule and broke it open...its pretty greasy.
i wouldnt ever suggest putting that stuff on your black heads...ever.
if you were getting them after using the vitamin e cream...that'd be a pretty big sign to stay away from the stuff and not let it touch your face. since your face is pretty sensitive.
if you don't like to use the face soaps and what not to get rid of them, there are other ways to make them go away.
i personally am not too fond of the medicated face soaps...they seem to dry out my skin or make it worse. although i have used a couple good products.

you can try lemon juice.
just rub lemon juice over the blackheads before going to bed. wait until morning to wash off the juice with cool water. repeat that for several nights until you see a big improvement in the skin. also helps to clear up blemishes.

i'm not sure what else to tell you. i wish you luck!

Re: blackheads and vitamin e.

have you tried those biore strips that supposedly pull off your blackheads? i've never tried them, but the ads seem to make them look like they work.

Queen Helene's mint julep mask would help blackheads. Also salycylic acid such as Paula's Choice BHA solution. A great product that has helped my blackheads and clogged pores tremendously is the Epidermx home microdermabrasion cream.

Re: blackheads and vitamin e.

thanks for all the replies...

prncssxjx, i think i only have few blackheads before using vitamin e. so i think its the vitamin e that makes my blackheads worse. so does the lemon's juice really helps blackheads go away? and does it cause breakouts or not? thanks for the advice though.

peachy d, i have the biore strips and tried it. before i tried it, i waited for my blackheads to appear, then i now put it on for 15 mins. and guess what, my blackheads are still there! i think only half of my blackheads dissapear. so i wouldn't really suggest that. but thats for me, i dont know if it works for others.
