Remedies for pimples on your nose.

Natural home remedies

1. Rosemary chamomile facial steam

For starters, the first home remedy is good for clearing pimples on your nose by using a steam “bath”.

When you make a medicinal infusion and let it boil, the steam, according to this study, works as an antiseptic and disinfectant and facilitates the functions of the other two elements.

In addition, chamomile is anti-inflammatory, while rosemary can address pore infection, as it promotes skin healing.

With these two ingredients, you can make an effective facial steam you can use once a week.


  • 5 cups of water (1 liter)
  • 2 tablespoons of dry rosemary (30 g)
  • 2 tablespoons of dry chamomile flower (30 g)


  • First of all, put the water on the stove and bring it to a boil and let the herbs simmer for five minutes.
  • Remove from heat and lean your face over the water, about a foot away. Be careful not to burn yourself!
  • Drape a towel over your head to keep the steam in place.
  • Let the steam work its magic for two to five minutes.

2. Baking soda and coconut oil exfoliant

After opening up your pores with the steam bath, you’re in a great position to do a deep clean and exfoliation of your nose.

For this, we recommend combining baking soda, which is an antibacterial and according to a study published in the Cuban Magazine of General Medicine, it’s rough but also gentle enough on the nose and skin, with coconut oil. This oil is a great anti-inflammatory agent, according to several studies.


  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (15 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda (3 g)


  • Mix the ingredients together until you make a paste.
  • On damp skin, apply the paste to your nose and massage gently.
  • If you wish, exfoliate your entire face.
  • To finish, rinse off the exfoliant with water.

3. Aloe vera and tea tree oil gel

If you want to moisturize your nose without making it oily, you can make a non-oily gel.

To do this, use aloe vera gel as a base, which will keep the moisture in, protect your skin, and help heal blemishes and acne. In addition, tea tree oil will help  prevent pimples on your nose because it’s an antibacterial.


  • 3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel (45 g)
  • 6 drops of tea tree essential oil


  • Mix the ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
  • Apply it to your face, avoiding making contact with your eyes.

4. Charcoal clay mask

If you want to get rid of the pimples on your nose, you need ingredients that will absorb and then remove dirt from your pores. Two natural detoxifiers that are perfect for the job due to their detox properties are charcoal and clay.

The clay will absorb toxins due to its mineral content. According to this study, charcoal is a powerful cleanser and absorbant. And thanks to its grainy texture, it also acts as an exfoliant. Together, they make an extraordinary anti-pimple mask.


  • 1 tablespoon of green or white clay (15 g)
  • 1 teaspoon of charcoal for cosmetic use (5 g)
  • 3 tablespoons of water (45 ml)


  • First of all, mix the three ingredients but don’t use utensils or containers made out of plastic or metal. Use glass, ceramic, or wood containers.
  • You should get a spreadable paste that’s not too wet or dry.
  • Apply the mask to your nose and leave on 15 minutes or until dry.
  • To finish, rinse off and moisturize your skin.

As you can see, these remedies are easy, inexpensive, and very natural. What are you waiting for to try them out?
