FACE
I HAVE VERY STRANGE SKIN ON MY FACE. THE UPPER PART FROM MY NOSE UP, IS OILY, WHILE THE BOTTOM IS SERIOUSLY DRY. I USE VASALINE ON THE LOWER PARTS TO MOISTURISE AND SOME DOVE ANTI OIL CREME ON THE UPPER PARTS. WHAT CAN I DO TO GET RID OF BLACK HEADS ON MY NOSE AND SURROUNDING AREAS? USING THESE CREMES, I HARDLY GET SPOTS, ITS JUST THE BLACK HEADS THAT ARE THE PROBLEM.

Dear JT
Blackheads form when the oil in the pores react with oxygen in the air and causes a chemical reaction. Cleaning your skin regularly and going for black head extraction at a beauty salon is the most practical solution.
