I finally figured it out!!!!
A little over a week ago I was looking online for a sugar scrub (I found one I love and will have to share with you soon!) recipe which I believe was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest? I'm not quite sure why I got the bug, but anyway..... while researching sugar scrubs I started to learn about oils and came across an oil mask. Maybe I should have bookmarked that in case you would be interested..... but at the time I had no idea what I had just found and how it was going to be shared here now. Anyway, you don't need it for today's purposes and Google is your BFF if you have to find it. I read about how oil is being stripped from our faces to much and how oil free products aren't as great for our skin as we are made to think. Then I found information gold!!!!
Those little dark dots filling my nose pores? NOT CLOGGED DIRT!!!!
In fact, I learned that when oil from your face comes in contact with air, it turns that dark color. Which makes us think it's dirt so we scrub and scrub and scrub..... which strips the natural oil.... which causes our skin to product more because it thinks we are lacking! What a vicious cycle.
Well, I had just happened to have picked up a bottle of Jojoba oil (which I found at Sally's beauty supply). Mine is not this brand, but I couldn't find an image on their site.... You could also find it at a natrual food store I would think. I was actually surprised to find it at Sally's (and it was less than $6!).
So after washing my face at night (and applying my night moisturizer) I started putting a thin layer of pure jojoba oil on my nose. After the first day I started to see a slight fading on my nose pores, so I started putting it on at both my morning and evening face washes. Almost a week of doing this now and my nose is almost 100% clear!!!! I'm beside myself excited and thought I would share my findings.
