How To Get Rid Of Spectacle Marks On The Nose

If you’re a spectacle user you may fall in love with spectacle marks.  I know your feeling bruh. Some feel wearing spectacles makes them so appealing and vice versa.

If you ask me do I like to have marks on my nose?

I tell you blindly that “I’m eagerly waiting for the day to remove my spectacle marks”. Some have different opinions about how they look at the spectacle marks. Spectacles marks is an add-on benefit to wearing the spectacle for a long period of time.

What do you say “is it permanent or temporary?”.

The inner heart of most people says it is definitely a permanent mark.

But the answer is “DEFINITELY NOT”.

Do you have any ideas how you got Spectacle Marks? 

The spectacle marks are due to the friction that happens when your spectacle touches on the nose. The continuous use of the specs prints its marks on your nose. When the nose pads of your frames are tight there is a high chance to get the spectacle marks.

You may ask me “I’m not wearing my frames so tight but I do have marks. What is the reason behind it?”.

Before telling you the reason I got one question to ask you.

The question is “Are you a foodie? Do you consume more fatty foods?”.


This is the reason behind your eyeglass marks. When you consume fatty foods, the fats get deposited on the skin. These fats turn into a mark that stays on your skin just like mole and scar.

Is it very hard to remove my spectacle marks? 


There is a remedy available to remove your spectacle marks. I hope you are now much more relaxed after coming to know about the cure. The spectacle marks need not be permanent marks but they do take some time to remove completely.

I guess your next question “ will I have to undergo any skin cosmetic surgeries?”.

Relax. There is no need for skin operations. The spectacle marks are not high health complications.

You may have the following question “ is my medication is natural or allopathy?.

Natural medicines are highly effective but you have to keep up your patience to remove the marks.

Also, do not fear to take the natural remedies as they do not create any side effects. I think this is quite enough to give you confidence in taking the remedies to remove the spectacle marks.

Let’s jump to the context.


Aloe Vera Gel 

Aloe Vera Gel is the natural remedy to make the marks disappear. It is easy for us to get the aloe vera as we can see the shrub in most of our homes.  Take the fresh aloe vera gel and apply it to the marks. Once it is applied to the black marks, it should be undisturbed for at least 10 hours. I know it is difficult for you to apply daily as you are committed to your daily works. So we recommend you apply during the nighttime. We used to go to bed after unwearying our spectacles. So it is definitely the right time to take the remedy. Regularly apply the aloe vera gel and you will experience the gradual disappearing of the spectacle marks.

Potato Paste 

Potato is the most liked vegetable by all. It also does perform natural remedies in curing the spectacle marks. Take the raw potato and deduct the outer skin of the potato. Make a fine grate of the potato and mix with rose water to form a paste. Apply the paste to the spectacle marks and wash it with water after 15 minutes. This remedy gives very effective results and when applied regularly it disappears the spectacle marks within a short while. Potato paste can be applied at any time as the time needed for the paste to get dry is short.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar mixed with water is one of the best remedies for curing the spectacle marks. The vinegar solution is highly effective to remove the spectacle marks. Use cotton balls to apply the solution to the marks. Take a cotton ball, gently soak it in the solution and apply to the marks. The black spectacle marks are removed after continuous applying of the solution. Wash your face after 10 minutes of applying the apple cider vinegar. You have easy access to the vinegar as it is easily available in all the stores.

Orange Peel Powder

Orange peel powder has high healing power in removing the spectacle marks. The peel powder is readily available in the market and it is easier to prepare the powder at home. Take the orange peel and dry it until the moisture in the peel is completely gone. Powder the peel and mix it with the water to make a paste. Apply the peel paste to the spectacle marks and wash it after half an hour. Continue this remedy thrice a week and you will observe a difference in the severity of the spectacle marks.

Lemon with mint

Squeeze the lemon juice and mix it with the crushed mint to make the essence of the mint is mixed up with a lemon. The mixed solution is one of the recommended home remedies to remove the spectacle marks. Touch up the marks with this solution using cotton. Wash it after 15 minutes with warm water. Regularly use this remedy and remove your spectacle marks.

Keep Your Face Clean

Most times, you get spectacle marks due to the dust present on the skin. When the nose pads get a contract with the skin dust, the marks are formed due to the friction between them. The best way to avoid getting skin marks is to keep your face clean. Wash your face once an hour to avoid the marks. This practice depends on the convenience of the individual. Compared to other remedial techniques, this one is quite easier and it does not require any extra effort to prepare the remedies.
